Port filtering and modest URL filtering
If you intend to connect to ADSL2+ over a wireless router and are one of the lucky ones that can achieve a speed between 21Mbps and 24Mbps, the D-Link DSL-2740B won't be able to deliver the full speed to wireless clients. This isn't a show stopper as a large majority of homes are unlikely to hit this speed or even have the option available, but it's something to keep in mind.
Delivers an impressive range of features
For wireless performance we can't see much to be gained if you already have a standard MIMO router as speed and range improvements for these draft-n products are not good enough to justify replacing existing equipment. That said, the DSL-2740B does offer a lot of unusual features for the price with above average parental controls although we would recommend checking out Netgear's DG834N router before making a decision.
Much needed upgrade
Went from the TRENDnet 54Mbps Wireless G Broadband Router TEW-432BRP to this, and no more drops. My old wireless G just could not handle the bandwidth, and would give out on very fast downloads. This Wireless N router picked right up, and went faster, got better Mbps on my wireless adapter, and does not drop off signal. So now I'm a happy wifi user :) They sent it with the most up to date firmware, and that's a plus.
Fast routing throughput
Overall, I like the Cisco RV180. Clearly, it is a fast router. But it is also quite solid as a VPN router, with easy Site-to-Site VPN configurations, inclusion of the QuickVPN client and support for PPTP VPN tunnels. If I could ask for one thing, I would like to see menu responsiveness improved. In summary, I think a network can never be too fast, and the Cisco RV180 presents compelling performance at a reasonable price.
Even with better two-stream performance, my bottom line on the WNDR4500 hasn't changed. The WNDR4500's overall performance just isn't head-and-shoulders above everyone else's. And I really think NETGEAR messed up by giving it a subset of the features of its less-expensive WNDR3800 sibling. If you don't need three-stream N, you can give the WNDR4500 a pass. If you're set on a high-end NETGEAR router, the WNDR3800 would be your choice for features and the WNDR4000 for performance.
Compact and neatly designed
There's plenty to like about the Netgear WNDR4500. It's compact and neatly designed, and the setup process is tremendously straightforward. Right now, Netgear's Genie app is of more interest to novice users, but if the company can deliver on the upgrades it has told us about, it may prove its worth to the more technically-minded. Wireless performance proved stable and connection speeds good, and for basic file sharing and streaming, at least the USB ports are useful.
Provides lots of wireless LAN bandwidth
The Netgear RangeMax WNDR3400 is a mid-cost wireless router. This router works on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies to offer twice the bandwidth compared to regular, single-band routers. The RangeMax WNDR3400's dual-band technology ensures that it has the performance needed for demanding applications such as multimedia streaming, Internet phone calling and multiplayer online gaming.
Fairly nice for use
The TRENDnet TEW-655BR3G/A is a handy little device. At $89.99 from Newegg.com it is also a good buy for anyone who is on the road a lot and might want untether themselves from their 3G dongle. It is also fairly nice for use with the iPad and eliminates the need to pay for an extra AT&T account if you already have a 3G USB Modem. The robust firewall/router and the rechargeable battery only add to its value.
The router is sure to satisfy your expectations in its performance. The router connects at a speed of 44 Mbps which is faster than Linksys E3000 and slightly slower than the Cisco Valet Plus. At this speed it can transfer 500 MB in matter of a minute. One impressive feature about the router is its range. There will not be any disruption in its connection even when taken 180 feet away. MiFi2200 could cover only a distance of 30 feet.
