Hi Everyone,

I want to buy Router for my home needs in the boxing day sale, but I will be use that in small business in future. So I am looking forward the advise from the experts.

My Requirements
--------------------------
1) Print Sharing or built in Print Server
2) File sharing
3) Dual band - For Speed
4) Three Antennas - I've heard throughput is good if the Router has more Antennas.
5)  VOIP Support
6) Storage Support.
7) Video Streaming
8) Continous Downloadble feature.
9) Parental Control
10) Firewall and the Security

Thanks,

1 - For the linksys one mentioned above, I do not see parental controls

the Netgear one DOES have parental controls

2 - for the Continous Downloadble feature, that is usually a software feature plus it must be supported by the website or server you care downloading from

Regarding Parental Control -- have a look at the E4200 emulator - there's a whole section dedicated for this.

BTW, also have a look at page 2 of the the E4200v2 review that shows the same screen for Parental Control.

Oh good. They both have it then.

Looks like you'll just have to compare and decide.

Look for some good sales after Christmas.

Good luck.

Check out this excellent router. The ASUS RT-N56U is a great value:

The RT-N56U is only 300Mbps while the Linksys is 450Mbps in both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz.
