any gigabit router will do you fine
You didn't actually just say that, did you?
Not all routers are "fine," not even close, and I require 11n wireless as well (kind of a given with a Gigabit router these days, especially one with a DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem integrated as well.
There's nothing particularly wrong with this Netgear one from Cox except I can't do much with it in terms of administration or custom firmware so, at some point it's got to go.
And it overheats pretty severely, almost to the point of me wanting to Jerry-rig a fan onto the vents on top. I mean, really really hot
at times, it's a bit ridiculous to be honest.
Anywhoo... ever since the "upgrade" hours ago I've noted that general browsing is very slow, very laggy so I'm guessing it'll pass at some point but, maybe it's related to some DNS issues as well, will do some testing and maybe switch over to Google DNS for a bit.
