    Hey all,

    Okay so not directly linked to Other gaming but anyhows ...

    Ive been using my old LinkSys BEFW11s4 broadband router for about 4 years now - its time for an upgrade me thinks.

    Im looking for something that

    - will give me 802.11g (as well as fixed ports)
    - will allow me to monitor via SNMP
    - supports QoS profiles
    - has a good reputation for supporting gaming (again using QoS profiling)

    Any pointers ?

    Nige

    The Speedtouch 580 is meant to be very good. I have the older version and have no probs with gaming!

    I got a Dlink DI-784 ROuter off ebay, no problems so far with it, supports Wireless A/B/G, and has a Gaming mode to, best router hands down though is the Micorosft MN-700 as it is easy to set up and you do not needd to mess with ports, works out of the box with everything...
