Holy crap that's a good router

Wednesday, March 21, 2007

So my router problems came back mysteriously, and disappeared just as mysteriously several days later. I'm still not sure what the problem was, but in the meantime I decided I had spent enough of my time trying to diagnose the problem and bought a DLink DIR-655. The router still requires a lot of reboots during configuration, but not nearly as much as my original one. However, this is rock solid, and fast. I couldn't believe my eyes while I'm on the phone (using VoIP through the Internet) and watching a 435MB download (Visual Studio SP1) clicking off about 1MB/sec, which is nearly my rated download speed through Verizon FIOS.

Oh, and I was also connected to work at the time. Also, I haven't had a single unscheduled reboot since setting it up.
