I have an old USR 9105 with a gradually deteriorating performance, it can't
sustain lots of connections and often requires a reboot. I was thinking of
buying this D-Link model (DSL2540), as it seems quite good judging from its
manual and brochure:


Alternatively I could go for D-LINK DSL-584T, but I don't see it on D-Link
website, so it might be an older model :


or ASUS WL-AM604, which doesn't look that good :


What do you think of that? Will it be worth the upgrade? I would like a
more powerful processor and more memory from my current router. Normally I
would go for a Linksys, but it's not easy to find non-wireless dsl routers
at the shops here.

I've never used one of these but yes based on the casing
style that 584T is an old model.

Why do you need a non-wireless dsl router?   Often that's a
free feature costing nothing extra, and often newer models
have it so the may have bugs worked out that existed in
prior models.  That is, if a mature product that's been on
the market for awhile, not revision 1 of whatever it is.

If you don't wish to use the wireless feature just disable
it in the menu, or at worst get a model with all
external/removable antennas that you can unscrew to prevent
an effective access range.
