Would a new router be faster?

I have an SMC Barricade 10/100 Mbps router that is about 5 years old. Have there been any significant changes in the technology over the past few years that would give me a noticeable speed boost (at least 10-15% faster)if I bought a new router?

I am planning on building a brand new system to replace the dinosaur I'm currently using, so I figured I'd take a look at the the equipment I'm using to see if improvements need to be made aside from the computer itself.

Thanks for any information and advice.

  1. Speed, probably not. Features and security, yes.
    If you arn't in need of any more advanced features on your router and the one you have is working great keep it.

  2. Now a 10/100/1000mbit router would increase transfer speed.
