Router suggestions

#1Duke AriochPosted 1/16/2014 11:25:47 AM
I notice in other topics people recommend anything by ASUS that is DB 5ghz. I figure while I am replacing the router I might be able to fix a problem I had with my current one regarding port traffic. For some reason trying to have 2 people simultaneously playing LoL would sometimes result in lag spikes (despite 30mb/s) and 3 people at once was impossible as it would constantly disconnect and reconnect in a round of musical chairs. After some research I came to the only explanation others have theorized being that my router can't handle that much traffic through the used ports.

I'm looking for something under $100 with ethernet (for 2 desktops) and wireless (everything else) ports that can preferably handle 3-4 people all playing the exact same game. Does anything like that exist or am I unrealistic with my price range?

I recently got the Asus RT-N16 and I has been working great for me. At any given time I have 2 computers, a PS3/Wii U and 4 android devices running off it doesn't have any problems handling it.
