    Netgear RT314

    D-link DI804

    Accton AC-IG1004

    does anyone have any of these and/or have any comments about them?

    I know people using the D-link and also Linksys 4 pt. gateways with no problems.
    I have a 3Com Gateway, which I chose because it's also a print server - but 3Com has discontinued it

    the main thing i want to know about, will they create lag? (eg, when i had a p166 as the gateway, there was heaps of lag, packet loss AND choke :() i just don't want that :)

    Great site for home/SOHO broadband router reviews. they even rate network throughput in their reviews so you know if the router slows down your connection.

    next question:

    was it expensive compared to the netgear etc?

    just slightly off-topic:

    From my vast experiences with Netgear products, they are pretty darn good. I've used a 24port Netgear switch heavily, as well as using Netgear NICs in all my PC's..... haven't had the slightest problem with any of them...

    Go netgear.. :thumb:
