D-Link DGL-4500 Gigabit Gaming Router 802.11a/b/g/n 2.4/5GHz Selectable Dual Band Xtreme N
  • 802.11a/b/g/n 300Mbps
  • 10/100/1000 Mbps Gigabit Port x4
  • 2.4/5GHz Selectable Dual Band

Pros:

This router is the best. Wireless coverage is great, I live on the 2nd floor of an apartment building, and I walk out to my car and just when I enter my car, my Nokia N800 just looses its connection.
Capable of handling high traffic, never had to reboot after plenty of online video streaming, and online gaming. Actually never had to reboot period.

The display is amazing, real-time information on network statistics, plus its current configuration.

This router is currently supporting, 9 computers on ethernet connection (3 of which are Linux, 2 Mac), with 5 static ips, and 4 on DHCP. And 6 WiFi connections (802.11b, WEP) all on DHCP.

I have over 15 ports mapped to multiple computers for different users using same application, mapped 3 of my own computers so i can access each's own apache server plus remote desktop and SSH. Plus auto-update DNS so I can always use an easy to remember URL to take me home.

Web based configuration, fast and easy to understand, with easy to follow

Cons:

None that I have found.

Other Thoughts:

I have yet to try WPA,WPA2 AES and PSK, encryption capabilities, problem is that my roommates still use old wifi cards, that don't support them.

I haven't fully tested Gaming mode, but it seems like port forwarding, might take precedence over Gaming mode.. or that gaming mode doesn't detect that it actually needs to get started.

Too many features to be tested and used by regular user, but this is never a con.

If you have the money, get it. It looks great with my furniture.
