How much is "lots of lag"? That is, what are you measuring, how are you measuring, what results are you getting, and what are your expectations? Numbers please.
Yes. The DI-614+ is 802.11b only, which will do about 4.5Mbits/sec max thruput on a good day. Typical is much less. If you can tolerate that level of thruput, leave it alone. If you want more speed, go shopping for something that supports 802.11g.
However if your definition of "lag" coincides with latency (ping delay), you probably have an interference problem from other wireless networks. Try changing channels. For testing, ping your routers IP address (192.168.0.1) and look at the numbers. They should be 1 or
2msec and very consistent. If they're higher and erratic, you have packet loss, which is a sign of RF interference.
Yes. I've had 2 of them. In their day, they were fine. However,
802.11g is much better at everything, that I see no reason to suffer with its limitations. It has some security problems, but nothing I consider particularly disgusting:

My "D-Link DI-614+ Rev B" seems to work fine, it has power as I type. I was just wondering if the "D-Link DI-614+ Rev B" needed replaced or not.
The "D-Link DI-614+ Rev B" has been working so I probably shouldn't replace the "D-Link DI-614+ Rev B" router.
If any of you know of horror stories related to the "D-Link DI-614+ Rev B" router please let me know. As I said earlier I've has the "D-Link DI-614+ Rev B" router 8 years now and so far the "D-Link DI-614+ Rev B" router isn't a big issue.
I bought the "D-Link DI-614+ Rev B" in a package deal with a wireless card otherwise I wouldn't have the "D-Link DI-614+ Rev B" today. Probably would have went with a Lynksis router but now I have the "D-Link DI-614+ Rev B" router.
