This is just ridiculous.

So I just got a brand new ASUS RT-N16 router because of its impressively sized NAT table and custom firmware capabilities for under $100. I was hoping that this would finally put to rest the ongoing issues I've been having with p2p and lobby-based game browsers/scanners such as the ones used by Steam, Xbox Live and the PSN to find game servers and/or create ones on the fly via matchmaking. I was pretty pissed off to discover that there was absolutely no change in the performance of these apps after replacing my 6-month old Netgear WNR2000v2 with the new RT-N16. It means that no matter how powerful a router I buy, Buckeye is still going to limit the x number of connections I can have per y magic timeout window, regardless of actual throughput. It drives me nuts and I don't know why I put up with it.
