Wireless Router Comparison -- Cisco vs D-Link
Posted on 2009-12-20
We have a D-Link DIR-655 router that we connect to our cable modem. We get like 20Mbps down, 6Mbps up. The main reasons we got this router were for distant reception and gaming speed. We have only one real gamer in the family. The rest of us can deal with occasional lags or slightly less performance.
So, since I'm somewhat familiar with Cisco IOS, I'm considering replacing the D-Link with something like a Cisco 871. How does it compare? Granted, I'll probably set up some QoS especially for his setup, but how do the performance and reception compare?
