    Looking for suggestions for routers perfect for gaming

    Post by bradthegas on Thu May 23, 2013 8:12 pm

    My roommate is moving out in a month and taking his router with him and I'm not sure what kind I should get to replace it. Anyone have a good suggestion? I'm mostly looking at wireless routers but hard-line routers would work out as well. Please, give me your honest opinions.

    Just go ahead and get a modem and hard link to that, much faster. If it's just you and a roommate you can easily manage. If you don't get a router, don't get Cisco routers...

    Well if I do go for a modem instead of a router then Im still in a bit of a pickle as I cant decide between getting a Linksys DOCSIS 3.0 Cable modem or a Motorola SurfBoard SB6141 modem, and I don't even know if there are any better ones out there.

    Definitely Motorola. My experience with LinkSys in the past has been less than contempt.
