Best router for 2 users?

  1. #11


    I found this one at Best Buys for 39.99 US Dollars. Link Below. This is an excellent router. Please ignore the bad reviews some people don't know what their talking about! Buy it, then install latest firmware then go to QoS and then control the bandwidth. Simples!

    Are there routers out there that get full support from time to time rather than just get abandoned after it releases? The review on that router isn't that great.

    I've always found Netgear routers to be about the best of the cheap ones.Reviews are biased always when people do not update their firmware. ​It will do the job for your needs at a low price I could look for a more expensive one if that's what you want?

    Okay now what you need to do is setup QoS. You need to halve the Mbs from your ISP then take away 20%. That figure is what you use to input as the max output to each computer.
    I.E
    10Mbs / 0.5 = 5Mbs -20% = 4mbs.
    4Mbs per second is the final figure you need to input as max to each computer.

    Try that and let me know...

    Good point Znod. With me losing my memory it's much fun making small mistakes....

    Yes 10/ 2 = 5Mbs -20% = 4Mbs

    I knew there was something wrong but It didn't register...Haha!
