New router recommendations

Recommended Posts

Over the past few days I've been having real trouble with Xbox Live. There are two Xbox consoles in my house, both connected to the same router (wired).

Playing MW2, my NAT is always set at Strict. I have fixed this a couple of times (first by enabling UPNP, then port forwarding, then setting up the 360 in a DMZ), however it has always reverted itself to Strict, even though these settings are supposed to permanently fix it.

So after trying all of these fixes I can only imagine that's it's a problem with the router. It's old, I got it 3 maybe 4 years ago and it wasn't the newest model back then.

 

So, assuming I'm right, I'm looking for recommendations on a new router. There are 3 other laptops connecting to it (wireless) as well as 4 other devices connected (wired). I'm using BT as my ISP, not sure if that makes a difference.

I'll be getting a few of these in a couple of days... one for me and one for a friend:

I'll be setting up mine first then move onto setting up my friend's.

 

I really hope this works as the price is extremely competitive here in Canada. Got mine at a local computer shop for $66.99CDN each.
