Do I need a new router?

I have an ASUS WL-500W which has been working fine. It only has 100mb ports so I have it connected to a 1000mb switch for my home network which has been working fine.

I just ordered an upgrad for my internet connection to 55 down and 5.5 up. I am afraid this router is not going to handle that well and I should get a new one. If I did need a new one I am not sure to go for another wireless combo or just a good router and use this as just a wireless ap.

They are coming out Monday to install the new connection. I know I can test it at that point but I wanted to get a head start on it.

  1. I doubt if there's much difference in price between a router and a wireless router so might as well save any complication.
