Hey everyone, im a proud owner of new D-Link Rangebooster G Router (WBR-2310)
Sure it a product of Year 2004, but hey it work so extremely well. I got this old Linksys Wireless Access Point Router (BEFW11S4), i have that for 5 years and it starting to show its problem like DHCP issue, Communcation between Modem and router issue, Video Phone issue, other thing. so i decided to get a new router.
Been researching around the web and found some info telling me to avoid Linksys model, because it have issue with BitTorrent traffic, something related to UPnP and DMZ host. it said if there is more than 5 connections with BitTorrent client, the Linksys router will be overwhelm and will cause disconnection. so that explain why im havng issue with it. And it have issue with signal also. Oncei n a while, the signal got low for some reason and i have to be in the same room as the router is and it work great. if im in other room, it will connect but wont get internet access. and one big issue for me is Video Phone, i use this video phone to chat with my friends. but it have a huge issue with DMZ in router. the Video Phone rely on DMZ to allow it a full access to the internet without any blockage. for some reason Linksys have issue with DMZ and sometime my Video Phone cannot connect to router because of DMZ. Yes i did try to upgrade my Linksys firmware but Linksys changed the file extension after year of 2003 which cause the v2 model not to upgrade it to v4 because the file extension changed.
So now im so happy with my new router, and it work so perfectly with my video phone. and i noticed i got a huge speed increase in my uTorrent, more than 150KB :w00t: it normally 90KB in Linksys, but now it 150KB or more in D-Link. Gotta love it now.
Anyone have experience with excitement with new router or anything? im curious with your experience
