This review is from: TRENDnet TPL-303E Powerline Network Adapter Up to 200Mbps
Pros: Got around 50Mbps most of the time--enough to stream 720p across my network just fine.
Cons: After about 3 years of use, had to decommission these because Comcast/Xfinity said these were leaking into the cable network. They tore my whole house apart and finally figured out it was one of these guys.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: DD-WRT Supported, Rosewill RNX-N150RTv2 - Wireless N150 Wi-Fi Router - IEEE 802.11 b/g/n, Up to 150 Mbps Data Rates, 5 dBi Fixed Antenna, WDS Bridge Connection, QoS and VPN Supported
Pros: Easy to set up. Relatively cheap. Good antenna range.
Cons: After a couple days of use, it drops internet. I narrowed this down to the router--my other equipment hasn't changed. Rebooting the router fixes it. The model I received is a V2 of this router. It is not compatible with DD-WRT. I was very disappointed to see that Rosewill made this change in the firmware. Based on the fact it drops internet frequently, I decided to return this as I consider it defective.
Other Thoughts: My old model was fried in a lightning strike. Before that, I had been using it for years with DD-WRT and had no problems with it. I was hopeful to replace it, but it didn't work out. I ended up finding an old Linksys router at a thrift store and put DD-WRT on that.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link DCM-202 Broadband Cable Modem 43Mbps Downstream,10Mbps Upstream 1 x 10/100 Fast Ethernet Port (Auto MDI/MDI-x) 1 x USB Port 1 x CATV-Coaxial Female Connector DOCSIS 2.0 Certified DOCSIS 1.1 Compatible DOCSIS 1.0 Compatible IEEE
Pros: This modem worked like a champ for over 6 years. Even though my cable company never recognized it, I didn't have problems with it. I replaced it with a DOCSIS 3.0 modem, but only because I wanted faster speeds.
Cons: Because it was so small and light, it was pulled sideways by the weight of the cables plugged into it. Pretty minor, though.READ FULL REVIEW
