I have to buy a Wireless router. Any advice on what I should be looking for.

Both Pc's are running Vista Home Premium. Don't know if that will make a difference.
Thank You

I've just looked at what PC's I'm buying now and got confused.

Both PC's have wireless network cards with aerials does this make a difference to what I have to buy.

Also are you better buying the G model instead of the B model. Does it make much difference.

Thanks

"Both PC's have wireless network cards with aerials does this make a difference to what I have to buy."

No. It just means that you don't need to buy a USB wireless adapter for each PC that you want to connect wirelessly to the router.

"Also are you better buying the G model instead of the B model. Does it make much difference."

Yes and Yes.

The new 802.11n standard is supposed to be coming out soon, but who knows when. Those routers are expensive at the moment.
