EDIMAX BR-6258n IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wireless Nano Size Multi-purpose Travel Router/ Range Extender/ Universal Adapter, Small Size Easy To Carry, iQ-Setup for Hassel Free Installation, and Power Fed by PC/Laptop USB port Supported
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Have used this in a hotel that only had a wired internet connection, as well as another hotel that had spotty wi-fi in the rooms. It works beautifully to address both problems. As a repeater, it was easy to set up and gave my phone, tablet, and laptop the needed wi-fi connections in all cases.

Cons: None.

Linksys WRT160N Wireless Broadband Router 802.11b/g/n up to 300Mbps/ 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: low profile, relatively fast reboot

Cons: Absolutely terrible performance. Router requires power cycle/reboot to access configuration screens otherwise you'll sit for minutes waiting on a screen refresh. Even with UPnP enabled, router is not seen as UPnP on Windows 7 so you must manually configure any port forwarding which requires rebooting the router just to access the configuration screens. Firmware is consistently buggy even after Linksys has made updates. Wireless connections are slow and frequently drop intermittently.

This is by far the worst router I've ever owned. If this is the best Linksys can do, I will look for other brands from now on. As soon as I can afford something else, this one is going into the dumpster.

Other Thoughts: I've always respected Linksys, but this router has seriously eroded my opinion of them. Their tech support has proven clueless regarding the numerous problems this router exhibits.

ASUS Radeon HD 3450 DirectX 10.1 AH3450/DI/512MD2(LP) 512MB 64-Bit DDR2 AGP 8X HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great features for an older AGP system

Cons: Card was extremely slow in operation, I was simply astounded by the poor performance. Thankfully, Newegg has a great return policy.

Other Thoughts: I'll save my money for a new mobo/graphics and forget about trying to upgrade what I have for now.
