The oldest one is WUA1340, I got five years ago. DWA-525 just weeks ago. The LinksysAE2500 I got this week.
WUA1340 is G only. DWA-525 and AE2500 support 802.11n network. Based on the theory, DWA-525 is 3 times faster than WUA1340, AE2500 is 2 times faster than DWA525. But, the reality may be different. Let me show you the fact based on my personal test of the speed to copy a large file.
I have a D-Link WBR1310. After two months usage, I found it is not suitable for my network environment.
The features are so limited. I need a powerful router will tons of advanced settings.
OK. I bought a Linksys WRT54G router last week. It is a discontinued product. I got one from the Office Depot, Vancouver Store.
Just because it is a discontinued product, it is only $40.
It is v8 edition.
CPU 240 MHz, Memory 8 MB, Flash memory 2 MB
Broadcom BCM5354KFBG Chipset with non-replaceable antennas.
I upgrade this device to the latest Linksys official firmware. Then I installed DD-WRT firmware to make it better.
