get a any normal modem connect to Dlink DIR-615.. flash it to dd-wrt.. vlan tagging to the modem, u have a better bandwidth control with dd-wrt

advantage:
better bandwidth control and stability
alot more feature with dd-wrt u can explore

disadvantage
danger to brick your router
may be high cost for you

software based
use p2pover--> google search

advantage
it free
easy to use, with just few click you can limit their bandwidth

disadvantage
can easily bypass with good firewall
your pc have to on 24/7 for bandwidth control

Ya,that's a high cost for me.
Forgot to mention that i just want a low cost modem router for the moment.
I'm using TM RIGER modem router and having problem with the modem.
So i plan to change a new modem router for bandwidth control purpose.

The B version is an updated version of T. Both are similar but B is superior than T in wireless link signal and uptime reliability.

At least that's what i've felt since i've used both of them. Both seems to have some problem with overheat though. So sometimes it may hang after a few days of not turning off the router

I look thru the manual and found out that T version having bandwidth management and QoS while B only having QoS.
Can someone who used 2640T before, tell me if the bandwidth management is effective?

here how i fix the overheat problem, simple solution less than rm10

user posted image

1st, cut the inlet hole on the left hand side of the modem/router
in my case, i cut 8 hole using a simple pen knife
the main heat is from the 3 large capacitor in the router, left side is the closest to the capacitor

2nd, build a mini exhaust fan using ad 40mm case fan, rm4 <-- easily obtain from any pc shop
the 220V to 12V adapter can easily obtain from any RC shop, in my case, i salvage it from my old RC toy
the resistor and mini switch, also salvage from my RC toys, (i forgot how many ohm ad,forgot how to read the color code liao tongue.gif )
solder all the component together
the screw function will be explain in the next picture

3rd, put the mini exhaust fan facing the left side hole u just cut
which direction of air flow is up to you, either inward or outward
for me, i used outward--> suck air out from the router
the screw is used to hold the fan upright, so it can stand

there you have it, <RM10 solution for preventing your router from overheat

ok i just fried my DSL-2640T, ironic i know, it overheat after i forgotten to on my cooling fan, all indicator light blinking like some Christmas tree tongue.gif

so i get myself a DSL-2640B
HERE my review

DSL-2640B is bigger size than DSL-2640T
it more stable in connectivity
better QoS and interface
less heat generation compared to 2640T, 2640T so hot after idle for sometime, like a piece of frying pan wink.gif

overall, 2640B is better compared to 2640T
