My flat-mate and I are looking into getting a new adsl router. Our current one, given to us by our provider, is the Netgear DG834G, which is a fine router that gets the job done. We have a media pc hooked up to it and it provides ample bandwith over G playing HD videos, and it's fine for gaming also. However, every now and then we'll hold a LAN with friends and they've been getting ever bigger. Our last one had six people over and it was crazy - we had to install a wireless card in one of the pc's, because the Netgear comes with the standard four ethernet port setup. It's getting awkward, and because we often have to copy across large patches or mods across the network, G is just too slow. So, we thought we might get a new router.
Usually I will buy from Komplett.ie, a fantastic site, but if I search for ADSL modems, I get four-port routers like our current one. If I search for routers or switches, I get models with as many ports as is needed, but lose the ADSL function. So, what we're looking for is an ADSL modem with Wireless N, Gigabit Ethernet and roughly six to ten ethernet ports. Does anyone have any suggestions?
...and I thought of how all those people died, and what a good death that is. That nobody can blame you for it, because everyone else died along with you, and it is the fault of none, save those who did the killing.
