whats the best router to use when using Xrumer? Would it have to be a Cisco router?
I use a hacked linksys wrt 54 GS with FIOS 20/10 internet service. Works wonders. You can really tweak it out.
what matters is your internet connection.
You cant get one faster than 10mbps download/upload unless your using verizon fios.
Actually it does matter. A quality router is necessary when using XRumer to its fullest extent. A business grade Cisco router will do the trick if your self hosting. If you're using a Dedi/Co-Lo or VPS your provider should be using sufficient hardware anyway.
Oh yes, it matters. With a cheap router, the number of simultaneous connections is very limited. I am also looking for a good DSL router, but it is really hard to find a router which is "certified for BH purposes"
I guess DD-WRT Asus or Buffalo are better than the average if you are on budget, otherwise Cisco of course. However, dedicated server will rape your home connection unless you are in Sweden heating up your apartment with Xenons
Are you kidding?
Theres no way you can run lots of connections on a standard DSL line.
Your router will not matter, becuase your connection cannot handle it.
The cheapest router will be more than enough..
Im running xrumer on 4 dedis, each max out at 90mbp/s, what matters most is the quality of your network card.
You show me a dirt cheap router than can't handle 90mbps traffic and I give you a beer. Seriously now, the cheap routers might not handle full 100mbps traffic, but will handle close enough. Number of connections is irrelevant. You can have the best Cisco router but if you have a slow throughput it won't matter.
Also, keep in mind that when you buy a dedicated server, even if it has unmetered traffic and they say the interface is 100mbps, that may actually be shared between many servers. It could be best effort bandwidth not SLA guaranteed. So do ask in advance.
Valid point, but for example my linksys had to be reset every so often, my DD-WRT Asus going a year without any reset or shutdown.... throughput same but reliability definitely not.
Well, at least I appear to be limited by my router. I have my own DNS server installed now, Linux (= no sockets limitation), etc etc. When I go over say 20-30 threads, my router gives me some strange messages in the log and I have to restart it. I do not even come nearby the limits of my DSL connection. When I download huge files from a fast server, I can go to my limit. When I want to run many threads, I get slapped. So, when the router is not the problem, then maybe my ISP is? Why do you think the router is not the cause? Just feeling or some technical knowledge about that?
how can you run Linux if xrummer is run from windows based system?
As already said, the best router would be a Cisco Router, or a router with an good cpu in order to work good and without disconnections with the amount of traffic xrumer can pull. Also your line quality could be shitty so a good router will help with disconnections and such. Finally, a wired router is ALWAYS much better/faster then a Wireless router when it comes to terms of transfer speeds between router and pc
And why would that be, there are plenty of places in the world where you can get 50-100Mb residential lines (god bless Eastern Europe). Our 'self hosted' servers here at our offices are on 100Mb lines.
I guess your yet to graduate from doing IM in your Daddy's laptop after school...?
To be quite honest im runnig xrumer on 4 dedicated servers each with a 1gbp/s line.
But that's irrelivant to the argument, In the USA and residential line will almost always max out at 20 mbp/s. Excluding 4G and verizon FIOS.
As for europe, their entire infastructure is much better,faster, and more efficient.
But still, the shittiest router will be fine. The main concern is the quality of the network card your machine is running, and first and foremost, the quality of the machine.
so whats the best network card ? and how much is a 1gbps/line costing?
