I'm currently running a hybrid home/office network comprising of several iPhones, laptops, and desktops (Windows, Mac), and gaming consoles - an average of 10+ devices connected at once. Vitally, I have a linux server which is publically exposed. The internet connection via ADSL2 with Annex M and a static IP.
I'm having major trouble finding a stable and well featured router. I've tried the router my ISP sent me (Thomson Speedtouch), which crashed several times daily. At the moment, I'm using a Netgear DG384N, which is more stable, but randomly turns off its wireless, really hates Vista laptops, and tends to lock up when the throughput is high.
What I need is
- Stability. I'm so tired of random failures
- Reasonable wireless range - The Wireless N feature of the Netgear has been useful
- A decent NAT, with UPNP (so it can support multiple XBox Live connections)
- Some form of DMZ, or at least robust port forwarding, so the server can be exposed on the static IP whilst stilling NATing.
- At least one ethernet port. Preferably 4+, gigabit (though I'm happy to get a separate wired router).
- ADSL 2/M support
I realise that's quite a lot, but has anyone come across a router that ticks at least most of these boxes?
