Gaming Router
 
Hi guys I'm in need of a new wireless router. My network consists of a Xbox 360 (wired), computer (wired) and laptop/iphone (wireless).

I'm less concerned with wireless speeds. Looking for a router with a good QOS for gaming. So far it looks like these two are the best:

D-Link Xtreme N Gigabit Router Customer Reviews

and

D-Link GamerLounge Xtreme N Gaming Router at Memory Express Computers

Both decent reviews but wondering if buying the 4500(gamerlounge) for an extra $60 would be worth it. Any input would be great.

Both will work fine. Get the cheaper one, the guts are the same and the only difference is the fancy screen on the more expensive one. I have 655 and it was good for gaming and the QOS engine worked fine.

Personally, I avoid Dlink products. I don't know why it is, but whenever you hear someone talking about router/switch/networking problems they always seem to have Dlink gear.
