I am about to take the plunge into a wireless network. Can anyone recommend which would be a good wireless router with modem. I am baffled by the number on offer - all seem to have similar features so is there any difference in reliability or any other way to judge? I have seen the Linksys WAG 54G, a 3com one, D Link DSL G604T, another from Belkin to name but a few. Anyone have any reason to strongly recommend or warn against any of these?
For ease of setup go for the BT2100 with free PCI card at PC World. It's slightly more expensive than the others but is an absolute doddle to get up and running - IF YOU READ THE INSTRUCTIONS. Someone on this forum decided not to do this and spent quite some time wondering why he couldn't get back on to the internet.
Why do I keep telling people this? Makes me look a right plank. Mind you, if someone learns from my mistake then..... lol.
Seems to be the BEST if you are running on 802.11g because it uses technology that supposedly will be used in the next generation 802.11n standard. It beats current routers on signal strength and transfer speeds. It was tested in the last issue of PC Advisor and there's another article about it in the current magazine. Will set you back at least £120 and more if you need the other peripherals. It doean't have a usb connection though, only ethernet.
