I need to move my computer from the basement to the top floor where my room is, two floors up. The modem is in the basement and I can move it to my room as well but I have another computer in the basement that needs access to the internet as well.
My main concern is connectivity given the distance between the two devices. I also had to go from a Dlink DI 604 to a Linksys BEFSR51 because I couldn't host a dedicated game server of this one title I was playing at the time behind the Dlink. Other than that I liked the Dlink better as it never needed reseting and it was simpler to set up and receive detailed traffic reports from it but, the Linksys would allow me to play my game. Ideally, I would like something that will not get in the way of gaming or any other use/application while behind it while being reliable!
