      Netgear D7000

      Just a quickie - Is this the best (at current) all in one solution for a Sky Fibre Router?

      Want something to have no lag when playing games online, and no drop outs etc.

      Is there any cheaper that are supported and would still deliver really good performance?

      Re: Netgear D7000

      I've used a draytek 2860, which with AC capability is much more expensive and the D7000 walks all over it in terms of being stable and wireless performance. The D7000_lacks certain features that a SOHO router should have, but it was not designed to be a SOHO router. For use as a home router its extremely good,, especially as Netgear gave it the ability to work with sky OOTB.

      Now, with reference to lag, my latency is around 5mS on TBB, that's pretty good. However, remember if you are playing games where the server is on the US west coast it won't be 5mS... Don't blame the router for that, certainly the D7000 won't be a cause of any lag problems.
