I best throw out my 11 year old Draytek, that's still working perfectly fine then.
You've just thrown away 3 signups with your attitude, so why not..
Actually I think it's you thats got an attitude. You pick up on a really old thread, weigh in with a stupid comment about router age, then take umbridge at a tongue in cheek reply Aquiss gave you and give a stupid statistic and snotty reply back.
I have two routers here both over 5 years old and working brilliantly - infact one (Cheap TP link) is far better then the two newer ones my last ISP gave me.
One of the places I do work has a Netgear(Linksys? can't remember now) router that is at least 7 years old, runs two (large, popular commercial) websites and manages the workload of 7 people as well.
Most people do not change routers unless they change ISPs or are forced to change. The only real reasons to change is if new standards (especially wi-fi, but even then you need a new laptop or similar to take advantage of it) arrive, or, it fries.
