A GOOD router?
I'm starting to wonder if there is such a thing. I think I'm a pretty heavy internet user, I know a lot of people say that but rarely have more than a few devices. I'm on my third new router in 3 weeks. I'm using the Netgear wndr3400 right now, it seems to be pretty good but I've noticed my laptop disconnects randomly and reconnects quickly. Its not a major problem but when I'm reviewing my cameras motion recordings for the day through my network it starts to drop as low as 2mbps when I look at my Network device. I cannot find one that fully fits my needs. I've tried expensive routers and mid range but it seems like my old $50 router is all that continues to work. I keep getting routers that have the wireless drop out completely until I go reset it, or the NAT settings for the 360's will be moderate. I cannot fix the NAT for all 360's, just one (or havent found a way to fix it for all) If anyone knows of a good router that can handle this type of use please suggest one, I'm willing to spend some money if its going to work.
2 HTC Evo phones
1 Iphone 4
1 Ipod touch
Wired - All on a 16 port Netgear switch
2 PCs acting as servers, one is set up with logmein.com used from 8-5 Mon-fri by a remote user
4 Xbox 360s used for gaming and Media center extenders, we only use Media center, no cable boxes.
1 Blu-ray player
1 security camera system with remote viewing
1 HDHomerun (not using any internet)
We can use around 10-12GB of transfer a day, I only know that because of the Netgear's cool bandwidth tracker on the router I'm using. I've considered building my own using Linux builds, I'm afraid to try it because I've never used Linux. If anyone has experience with one of those and knows if it does well with Xbox 360's NAT issues let me know.
