    Gaming Routers

    Could anyone recommend a good wireless gaming router for under $100. I've been using this router/moden combo from comcast and it doesn't handle both very well so I'm looking to upgrade.

    asus stuff is supposedly good, but they have no enterprise networking experience, meaning customer reviews and opinions are worthless

    nothing by juniper is gonna be in that price range, and cisco is a bit above it for a good one, but you might be able to find a lower end model around $100 or less if there is a sale and flash it with dd-wrt

    edit, also, there is no such thing as a "gaming" router, it's just a fancy way of charging extra for QoS

    I paid almost $200 for it when it came out, its fantastic. You wont find better for less than 100.00

    If you're fine with 2.4 GHz only (if you live close to other people with a router, you're probably not), this is a steal.
    Flashable firmware. Don't know anything about their higher range stuff.

    I will agree with this. Get the Netgear and put DD-WRT on it, or as an alternative, the ASUS RT-N16 with Tomato is also a very powerful router. Personally I'd go with the Netgear for the extra $20 just because it's dual band.
