Wireless Routers

Hi. I have just received my phone and broadband from ORANGE. the supplied router is a Netgear n150 and as I need a wireless connection from the router which will be situated upstairs and my pcs are downstairs. i have been told that this router will enable 2 Pcs to play online games although the box says no!.Should I be looking at another router such as the n300?

Whether you can play 2 on-line games at once will be down to your broadband speed, the router will share the data between the connections so 2 PCs will go slower than if you had 1 PC on line. Unless you have a fast connection you will find you canot even play one succesfully - you will be shot while you computer is thinking!
