I think my Dynalink RTA1025W is crapping out on me. I get disconnected at least 5 times a day from ethernet (slower than usual) but wireless still remains fine. I then have to turn off and on the router for it to re-initialize the connection >_<

I believe its the same issue as here http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.as...p;topicid=56127

- Youtube loads on phone with wifi fine

- Ethernet cable to PC is slow as hell

In search of a new router with:
- gigabit capabilities built in but does not matter as I have a gigabit switch now
- wireless
- 4 port ethernet
- build in ADSL 2+ router

Looking at Linksys, thoughts ?

Dont mind second hand from trademe or buy/sell forums

I just installed a Linksys E4200 and it is fantastic. Really fast internet loads, 4 Gbit ports and dual wireless N.

Not sure if there is a ADSL version but I reckon if you go for a higher end Linksys you wont be disapointed.




When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

Avoid WAG320N and other internal antenna models.

TP-LINK TD-W8960N would be my pick for "budget" all in one (modem/router/switch/wireless) replacement ~$100

I got a near-new TP-Link router/AP on Trademe for $40, which would fit your budget. Perhaps you could get the one Ragnor suggested if you are patient.

Yeah confirmed my ethernet port 1, 2 and 3 are stuffed as its not getting full internet speed

Port 4 has full speed and wireless working fine.

Purchased from PB end of 2009 - doubt it's still covered under warranty eh ?

Do TP-LINK do something like the link above, only with the newer ADSL2 standard?
I'm after an all in one recommendation to replace the basic telecom supplied D-Link ADSL modem my parents currently have, rather than stick a wireless router on that.

Not sure what you mean? That model does ADSL2+ aka ITU G.992.5

oh shame, yeah I see it now, I was just reading up at the top of the page only initially. Embarassed

Looks like a great deal if people are recommending it.  I previously liked the Belkin models, but mainly only as I found them really easy to configure UI wise.  As others have pointed out, this is for a parent/inlaws install so I want it to run reliably for ever....

Cheers.
