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.

My kids like to abuse Netflix while I am sleeping and the wife doesn't really monitor that. I just like to make sure we are nowhere near our monthly limit of 150gb.

In my experience Belkin, Netgear have been garbage.
Definitely agreed on netgear. I'll know about Belkin soon though. If it doesn't hold up I'll most likely be trying one of the D-Link N600s next.

Well, worked like a champ until it hit 1 year. Does anyone make a product that lasts anymore?

Has anyone tried the Netgear N600 WNDR3700v4? Seems like it is getting pretty good reviews for a Netgear product.

Nothing against your suggestion. I just really want USB network sharing.

Think I am just going to have to stop reading user reviews because every single router I look at has 100 or more reviews talking about constant dropouts on Amazon and Newegg.

Here's a great model that will do everything you want: http://www.amazon.com/BUFFALO-AirSta...dp_ob_title_ce

With regards to reviews for the product, keep in mind that tech like routers are notoriously difficult to accurately review. Simply due to their complexity and dependence on many other independent variables. Most of which the majority of people don't understand and don't consider when reviewing. With routers, overall performance is dependent on much more than just your router itself. It's completely dependent on your ISP connection first and foremost. A fluctuation with your ISP connection can easily be mistaken for "Router drop outs". Likewise the performance of the device you're connecting with. Even down to the web browser on the device you're connecting with. You can look at any model router reviews and find somebody complaining about connection, but I guarantee you that many of those are mistaken symptoms.

That is the exact model I was looking at other than the netgear

I have a Cisco/Linksys EA3500 that, IMO, is awesome. I haven't had any issues with it and the signal is very good. I have a Diamond Booster on the second floor of the house and with that and the router, I have a five bar signal on every floor.

Direct TV and Amazon stream with no issues.

I convinced my parents to get this router, and it's been really solid for them.

Buffalo is a good company. All their routers are open source. They're running a customized DD-WRT already, which is arguably the best router software. But you can install the super customizable open source version of DD-WRT as well, and have access to more router info and settings than is safe for most people. But they leave it open sourced, which means their hardware is solid enough that they can give it to you and say "There you go, you can run whatever the hell you want on it." Valuable quality in the technology field.
