Hi ! I'm planning to get a wireless router, I got a few on my mind.

1. Linksys WRT54GL
2. Belkin F5D7634 / F5D7632

*By the way, can anyone tell me what's the difference between F5D7634 anad F5D7632?

Some of them advice me to take Belkin because of their lifetime warranty, while Linksys with limited warranty.

My details/requirements:
Living at double storey terrace house.
Connects to 3-4 laptops.
Budget around the price of those I mentioned.
Currently using Billion as my cable modem.

Please give me some advice !

The two Belkin models you have quoted are *MODEM/ROUTERS* suitable only for ADSL broadband via the phone line.

The Linksys WRT54GL is a "Cable/DSL Router" suitable for use with Virgin's Cable Broadband.

>>> Currently using Billion as my cable modem.

Do you actually mean "Cable Modem", as in the Modem supplied by a *CABLE BROADBAND* ISP (Virgin Media) for use with their service, or do you mean an ADSL Modem that is connected by a USB cable?
