PostPosted: Sat Feb 21, 2009 9:50 am    Post subject: Best Router - Not Wireless, Not WRT54G, - PS3 and PowerLine? Reply with quote Back to top

Hi guys. I have tried searching the archives to no avail.

I need to upgrade from my RTP300.

The WRT54G (which seems to be often recommended) is notorious for having problems with the PS3.

I have Powerline for my PS3/laptop (because I prefer not to use wireless) so I don't need a wireless router.

So, with all that in mind, what's the best router to get for Vonage (and also the PS3, Powerline considerations if applicable)?

Thanks a lot in advance ... would very much appreciate some advice.

If you are looking for the best router, it will be a matter of opinion. I've got a wrt54g and haven't had any disconnects and I connect via wireless. I have set up a DMZ for the IP of the PS3 and this may be the reason. I looked through the PS3 forums and they were pretty much all over the place, everything from Buffalo to Linksys. The one common router I did see was the d-link DIR-655. With any router, I would suggest setting up the DMZ for your PS3 and make sure that UPnP is enabled, if the router has that feature.

As far as Vonage devices, it will depend on which one you upgrade to and how you have your network setup. The v-portal has a lot of configurable settings that will help you out (DMZ, UPnP, and an option to turn the firewall off completely, etc...). You could try to find a Motorola vt2442 at a retailer. This will allow you to upgrade your Vonage device and also gives you a 4 port router. It also has the option to disable the firewall and set up a DMZ. Down side with this device, the DMZ is a little more complicated. You may have to set up a LAN Client for the PS3, if it does not automatically.

I created a website to help out our tech agents with certain issues, this being one of them. I'm sorry to say that it is only accessible internally from my center, but if you have any questions or problems, just let me know and I'll help you figure out whats going on.

BTW, are you just wanting to upgrade from the RTP-300 or is there something wrong with it?

First off thanks for your reply and advice. Much appreciated.

As for this question, I keep getting disconnected when using the PS3 (or for that matter the laptop as well). I've tried a whole host of fixes (DMZ, ports forwarded, static IP, UPnP enabled, switching from Windows Media Center to TVersity) and nothing seems to have resolved the issue. So after eliminating everything else which could have been a problem (the wireless modem and trying all those fixes) it seems to boil down to the RTP. I've heard a whole host of options as to what could be the problem (limited throughput, rebooting e.t.c.) but whenever I have problems they're usually resolved by the old unplugging the router, waiting a few seconds, and plugging it back in. So to me it seems very likely it's the RTP causing the issue (although I'm open to other suggestions).

I too saw the DIR-655 get good reviews -- it would be nice to get an all-in-one option like the Motorola but I'd really prefer to just get the best stuff possible so I don't have to worry about it anymore. So I think that would be a 655 and V-Portal.

If you are looking for the top of the line, there are routers designed specifically for gaming. Most are classified as "wireless N gaming routers". A couple of examples of those are the D-Link DGL-4500 and the Linksys WRT300N. The WRT330N would also be a good candidate, plus it looks cool. With these routers, you are looking at prices around $200 give or take a little. I'm partial to Linksys. I've looked through the GUI of the d-links and the llinksys devices, and the linksys is more user friendly. If it were me, I would get one of the Linksys gaming routers and set up QoS as well as all the settings you mentioned before. With QoS, you can set the priority level of your PS3 to highest and the router will put those packets in front of everything else.

check these sites out and look through the user interfaces and check out the settings.

I definitely need QoS.

I saw some reviews of the WRT which weren't very positive -- however it was mostly negative about its wireless options and since I don't need wireless it doesn't impact me.

I'm still leaning toward a V-Portal and DIR-655.

Thanks again for the info and I may take you up on the offer of some questions and/or problems once I finally get this all purchased.

Utterly unrelated to Vonage but now I could possibly consider returning the Powerline and saving some cash that way. However, even with a better router, the idea of being wired appeals to me a lot.
