I'm looking for a N router
#1
I'm looking for a router to buy but I know nothing about routers. some enlightenment would be appreciated.

What I have?

small apt
comcast cable (I think up to 15mb).
Reliability. I want no disconnects.
Price range... I guess $60 or below.

I want to be able to stream, dl at nice speeds, play games without disconnects.

Someone suggested to me this one. What do you guys think?

Personally I'd go with http://www.newegg.com since they have more variety, such as the list I found here ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductLis...ageSize=20 ) I'd go with netgear, linksys or d-link. These routers are advertised as going up to 300mpbs.

EDIT - I updated my sig, thats the laptop I'll have soon. I've upgraded to the Built-in Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6200 Wireless Card. Also with windows 7. I'm not sure if any of this effects the router but if anyone has any suggestions, let me know.

(CANT WAIT FOR IT TO GET HERE!!)

I suggest the WRT54GL and flash tomato on it.

36x customer choice awards can't be wrong.

It wins every month pretty much guaranteed.
