I know it's been asked a load of times but I too want my own specific thread, haha.
It seems there's no benchmark router available in the FTTC world at the moment. ie, the DG834GT for great ADSL sync speed with broadcom based exchange equipment.
I recently switched from the DG834GT after many years of faithful service as it was playing up with Bonjour. I now have a Billion 7800n which is great with my current Sky LLU connection.
My only complaint is that there's no 5Ghz in there. Being a mostly mac household, 2.4Ghz provides pretty poor file TX speeds as apple don't see fit to allow channel bonding at 2.4Ghz.
Sky have also thrown a question mark now by offering me fibre (install date the 19th)
I'd like to get a different router in by then, but I could do with some help deciding which to go for..
The only things I want for sure are gigabit ports and simultaneous 2.4 & 5Ghz.
NAT loopback would be nice too as my netgear didn't have that and it's proves pretty useful with the 7800n.
I already have a airpiort extreme upstairs as a WAP but wouldn't consider using it as a main router due to it's poor port forwarding, UPnP and NAT.
I spotted this
but nowhere seems to have it listed for sale?
