Daily Traffic

I’ve just bought myself another router , as I’ve had some problems with my Zyxel ‘locking up’ after heavy wireless traffic.  This unit apppears to have better wifi performance than the P-336M.  Signal strength is up from about 50% to 70%+ on my Pure –  Evoke Flow which is furthest from the router.

Bought on ebay as new old stock I suppose, but interesting has come with an alternative operating system by a company called dd-wrt i.e. the original Buffalo image has been replashed.  See http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv3/index.php It’s extremely comprehensive and includes lots of statistics including total WAN traffic. Very useful when Virgin have got very aggressive ‘bandwidth throttling’ in place.  See http://allyours.virginmedia.com/html/internet/traffic.html

Other potentially useful tabs include QOS.
