Mockery Thanks for the info guys, I'll letcha know what I end up going with whenever I buy a router. Much appreciated!

Archduke Tips The article may be a year old but a lot of the technical reasons for why they don't recommend 802.11n are still valid today. How much bandwidth does your internet provider give you? I get 5 Mbps... so I can't really justify upgrading my wireless when my internet provider is the bottleneck.

Fathom Zero Use it. Moreover, that article's a year old tomorrow. Surely something must've changed by now.

Archduke Tips Articles like this don't make me too confident in 802.11n:

And the standard hasn't even been released by IEEE yet. What exactly would you do with 802.11n bandwidth?

Fathom Zero I'd slaughter a lamb to have Draft-n capabilities on my router.

Archduke Tips I like my Linksys router, but I would recommend that you base your decision on cost. Also, think about if you really need 802.11n. You might get up to about 4x the speed of 802.11g on the local network, but that still isn't going to make your internet connection any faster.

Fathom Zero For me, I haven't used Netgear. I've used Belkin and Linksys routers. And my Linksys easily trumps the Belkin. Either of those choices look pretty good.

I can't fault it. Personally I prefer Netgear as several Linksys products I've used before have been a bit dodgy but there is every chance the router you're looking at will work well.

Looking for a new router. Any suggestions?

I have an old Linksys router... and when I say old, I mean it's about 10 years old now. Obviously, it's time for an upgrade.

So one of the main routers I'm looking at currently is the Wireless-N Linksys WRT160N:

Do any of you use this one or know anybody who has used it before? If so, what do ya think of it?

Also, if you have any other router recommendations, please lemme know.

Thankee!
