WTB: Router that can control bandwidth

hi i want to buy router for bandwidth control

i have 4mb PTCL with 6 users

want to restrict bandwidth for them

Which exchange is your ?

north karachi

get a zyxel router

Most of the inexpensive TP Link routers available locally can do internet sharing.



Example router:


The above device costs around 2k locally.

^They do the job on ethernet but their wireless performance is not that reliable. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/802.11n-wireless-router-access-point,2605-20.html

thanks yousaf and Rokra for detailed information :-)

and actually i m using just ethernet ports

for wifi i also have PTCL AN1020-25 wifi router

You are welcome, I think it it will perform better on wifi than ptcl's modem.

Hmms thanks if it is than it's great :-)

The model tom's hardware did benchmark on is pretty cheap one, I'm using TL-WR1043ND with dd-wrt and tell you what it really pawns the $100+ devices with a big margin when it comes to features and price/performance. Got 3 of these for myself and not regretting at all.

Its available for 6k in pak.

How does it compare with a Linksys 600 (you said $100+), or even Linksys 610N or Asus N-16


linksys device you mentioned is discontinued product and its way over $200 with crap chip on it - no comparison even if its 610N.

RT-N16 is quiet nifty high specs device i tried to get it but sadly isn't available here - cost about usd $100

WR1043ND is for about 6k - image explains rest.

Did you said Linksys 600N has got a crap chip :rolleyes: I'm amazed. It still sells for $500 for a new if ava.

N-16 is selling for $87 these days.

Image clearly explain the difference, except 1043N all other have got broadcom chipset (DD-wrt was originally designed for it) .

If something is overpriced doesn't mean its topnotch and its old now n16 is much better option to avail.

Yeah, but no can deny the stability of Linksys 600N, http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=79379&highlight= and http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=79201&highlight=.

Ask anyone at dd-wrt and they can if you have the money they will recommend 600N.

I’m also going to either buy Asus N-16; or in case I have enough funds, either 610N v2(DD-wrt) or WNDR 3700(on default firmware). WNDR3700 is great router but http://forum1.netgear.com/showthread.php?s=69ca76ebed648952a1704528e48d5ae3&t=41194&page=2

Please do post your graphs. Like this one from a adhoc network. Zardari worried military may take him out: WikiLeaks

Well if you got a old p4 with wireless card and 2 Lan cardwith and 1 GB ram and 10 GB hard drive then install MikroTik & use it for bandwidth management.
