A good router in this price range exists?!,
This review is from: TP-Link TD-W8951ND 150Mbps Wireless N ADSL2+ Modem Router for Phone Line Connections (Accessory)
I bought this as a temporary replacement for my Netgear DG834PN which had reached 7 years and was constantly dropping my connection. My ISP had cut my speed as a result because it was making the line appear unstable to them.
This little thing is great, I don't know if these cheap routers can be hit and miss or perhaps those who have problems haven't configured their settings correctly but i can say for myself at least that it works great. Easy to set up and once connected it synced at my lines maximum of 8/Mbits and gave me a download of 6.7/Mbits which is my fastest yet. It has now been on for 48 hours without a single connection drop, and my devices stay connected to the router... my old one used to kick them off now and again. I am in a two floor house and the signal strength is shown as excellent upstairs.
Even if it works for 6 months then gives up it will still be worth the cheap price. I don't think there is any reason to worry! I'd buy this ahead of the similar cheap belkin versions. A wireless N modem that actually works for this cheap price... seems i just found one.
P.s there is a setting to have the router disconnect when idle and re-connect on need - DON'T enable it. This is bad for your connection.
