Which Wireless router to choose?????

  alkebab 10:53 01 Jan 2009

I currently have a dsl modem from Virgin Media (Motorola sbs 100), but it is quite restricting. I would like to move into this century and upgrade to a wireless router.
I have had a look on various websites but there is too much information and choice.

My requirements are:
To connect 1 desktop Dell pc
To connect 1 Fujitsu Laptop
To connect to Xbox Live
To connect a PSP to the internet

Hopefully not all at once, but can anyone point me in the right direction. I.e Is there a website that will give options based on my requirements.

You're requirements are limited by you ISP's ability to provide the speed you are looking for.

Phone Virgin and upgrade to 4mb while asking for their free router, or just ask to see if they will supply one free of charge without upgrading.

I have been using a linksys wrt54g now for over 4yrs without problems on Virgin (NTL) cable connection obviously your would want a later model but to be honest they are all pretty good nowadays.
