Im using the Superhub and find the WiFi signal very poor, i have a WRN2000 router and when on modem mode find that signal improves, but i want to maximise speeds once on 100mb (50Mb just now but upgrade imminent), will my WRN2000 be suffice for 100mb?

Re: looking for a good Wireless Router for 100Mb

I can recommend the ASUS RT-N16 router. Nice piece of kit and easy to setup. Also takes 3rd party firmware. I have Tomato installed on mine.

Re: looking for a good Wireless Router for 100Mb

Another one for the Asus RT-N16. Stick tomato on it and you basically have an amazing peice of kit. I've just added a 2TB USB hdd to mine so its now a DLNA media/file server in addition to being a damned good router.

Re: looking for a good Wireless Router for 100Mb

no external antennae so I would expect poorer wireless performance, however its not always the case

Re: looking for a good Wireless Router for 100Mb

has any one tried the Fritz!box 7390 as router with virgin media's superhub?is also OK for infinity (2 in 1) when fttc comes in my area
http://www.avm.de/de/Service/FRITZ_C...cable_modem_en

it can do both 2.4 & 5 mhz at the same time plus can handle the dect phones,voip and if you have iphone can call free world wide plus it can handle media server

EDIT

FB 7390 is a bit pricey .... will work good the cisco linksys E3000 ???
six antennas and media server as well and 2,4 & 5 mhz wireless together

you have hit the nail on the head dude, I am Linksys all the way. I have got the E3000 which is amazing. Ignitionnet who is god when it comes to networking has got the E4200 and he swears by it. The difference between the models is obviously the features and stuff but despite the fact that it hasnt got any external antennae, the wireless performance, dual bandness, range, signal strength etc etc are kick ass and I'll never have anything other than a Linksys router (I have been using them for years)

Re: looking for a good Wireless Router for 100Mb

Another nod for Asus rt n16 running tomatousb firmware.

Hint...out of the box the installed asus firmware is crap so do yourself a favour and install tomatousb before you start using it.
