    VM superhub

    Hi

    I'm looking at changing my router at the moment I'm running a 200mb line with a superhub as we all know the router side of the super hubs are very hit and miss, at the moment mine is in modem mode with a n300 router attached which is great until both my boys start gaming is there a good gaming router that can cope with 2x Xbox and 3 computers plus 2x solo2, plus 7 mobiles and tablets , as soon as they start gaming TV can be a bit glitch

    I would like to spend no more that 100 but I want top notch for speed

    cheers

    I have VM 200 and had a TPLink WDR3600 running DDWRT as main router (SH was in modem only mode) noticed with speed test I was only getting 175MB - after some reading turns out the bottleneck was the TP Link and as the NAT'ing was software based, this was the reason.

    I had a Core2Duo desktop which I installed pfSense with 2 x 1Gb Nics and now getting 220Mb broadband when doing a speed test.

    so my advise is stick pfsense between WAN and LAN turn the wifi routers into access points.

    Btw I have following

    4 x Laptops
    3 x desktops
    1 x Vuo Solo2 (one you sold me )
    1 x Edison OS Mini
    5 x Android phones
    1 x Sky box
