Remember that you might need to change it out every now and then just to keep up with better technology . . . even if you have a very basic 4-port "wired" Router. For Example, today I just found out that my Belkin 4-port Cable Gateway Router that is 4-5 years old is Version 1033. I am told that Version 1033 is actually Version 1000 by one of their techs. Believe it or not, the EXACT same model number is now on Version 4000. And low and behold, this unit is no longer "capped" at lower download speeds. Yeah, I know it says 10/100 base T. And, yeah, it doesn't matter what "Firmware" you have downloaded on your Router over the years . . . But believe it or not, the download speed ( for some unknown reason ) on Model F5D5231-4, Version 1000 was "capped" at 7.4 mb on the download and 6.7 mb on the upload. The Version 4000 ( of the exact same model number ) now gets 63.1 mb on the download and 71.5 mb on the upload! Obviously, the latest VERSION is able to capture the potential of higher and higher broadband speeds, unlike the version 1000 of 4-5 years ago. You may now return to your regularly scheduled programming. This has been a Public Service Announcement for all of you remote traders out their on the Internet Superhighway.
