Whats up with my router? Its a Linksys BEFW11S4. As soon as I start up a bittorent client, my router dies and I lose my connection.

What gives?

Up/downgraded the firmware to 1.50.14.

Broadband Reports is full of people reporting problems with that model. It apears that firmware version fixes a lot of problems.

Do you have UPnP turned on in the router and in the bittorrent client? I know in the client I use for BT, I had to change the number of connections incoming and outgoing otherwise my router would get really bogged down and wouldn't process anything.

screw it. I bought a new router. A D-Link DGL-4300, it has a Gigabit ethernet 10/100/1000, w00t!

$119 at newegg

games.dlink.com/products/?pid=370

got my new router! man its fast!

Got it all setup. This thing has some awsome settings in the bios!

So far my internet surfing speed is more robust, and im downloading bittorents at 165kb/s now!

I havent messed with the wireless yet or some of the advanced features. But I highly recommend the D-Link DGL-4300 router for power users and gamers.

that was the first router i used at my house. about 5 years ago. i payed about $350 dollars for it. i just checked it a couple weeks ago. because i have constant DSL problems here. just as a troubleshooting thing. and sure enough it still works

now i use the wrt54g routers

Gigabit is nice and all... but do your cables and network cards support it? Won't make a difference with internet, but might if you transfer a lot of stuff back and forth on the pc's within your network.

I had to limit mine to 30 connections or my Linksys BEFSR41 would do that same thing.

What are you connecting it to then? Just the router and nothing else?

I have installed plenty of gigabit networks. I was just asking, because I've come across a lot of people that say "wow, look at me I have gigabit!" but then they ask why they aren't getting gigabit speeds. A bunch of people don't realize that the whole network needs to be gigabit to get those speeds.

What makes it good for power users and gamers? I'm in both categories, so I'd like to know.

Its fast as hell. And the configuration settings in the bios are incredible. You want to configure for BF2? cool, just click BF2 in the settings and it sets up the ports and directs them to your pc, Gamefuel is great, really handles bandwidth between PC's well.
