pick a wireless router for me

I have had it with the one year old Netgear WNR3500l constantly crashing. Using my 7 year old DLink DI 524 right now but it has poor range. At least it never drops connection though.

I'm looking at it. The only con I am finding is the fact the USB only allows use of the external HDD one computer at a time.

Where are you reading that? It has SharePort technology -- plug in a USB external drive or printer and you're now sharing it across the network.

Am I going to have any issues using this because the router I have with AT&T Uverse is already a "wireless" router?

Nope -- you can disable the wireless on that combo or just use the new router on a different channel (1,6, or 11 is recommended)

I've grown quite fond of Buffalo routers.

This is a really good router: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833162031

With a quality router, you should have full bars at your mailbox. Unless you have 10" thick brick walls lined with lead or something. Or a 1/4 mile driveway.

LOL... well that's not really unexpected... When you rent equipment from those ****ing thieves in the cable and internet business, they tend to give you the cheapest shit products possible. Then charge monthly fees for it, which will pay for the shit products about 100 times over, while giving you the shittiest possible performance.

I've seen it on several reviews. First it requires proprietary software to run the shared device and can only be run on one computer at a time. So I would need a host computer running 24/7 to access the drive from my other network locations. My Netgear didn't require any of that. Any computer could access the drive at any time without any other computers needing to be on to use it.

From CNET reviews....


The good: The D-Link DIR-655 offers decent throughput performance and stable wireless signal. The router has an intuitive and responsive Web interface, support for Gigabit Ethernet and guest networking, and an extensive set of networking features.

The bad: The DIR-655 doesn't have dual-band support. Its SharePort USB port can work with only one computer at a time.

The bottom line: With the latest firmware update, the D-Link DIR-655 is arguably one of the best among single-band Wireless-N routers on the market.
