I am in the need for a new router.

My current one is going kaput, some ports stopped working, and it seems to be cutting my bandwidth basically in half.

This is the router i am looking at, and i have hear a lot of good things about it.

Your thoughts/comments?

[COLOR=black]Looks good to me, although I doubt there is much difference performance-wise between routers. I use a wireless 802.11g network and the only variable between the routers I have used in the past I think is the effective coverage (some are slightly better than others but it is quickly remedied by a Hi-Gain antenna) or some kind of company specific turbo technology that may optimise throughput slightly.

My uncle got a d-link router alot like that. Me and him could not get it to work (He is good with computers, not a n00b). After 5 hours, we called tech support, and you know what they said? Oh, don't use the manual, its horrible! I have a 2wire router, and it works great. Opens most ports automatically, which is good for gaming and such.
