O.P. RE: Wireless N questions
Ok I searched around abit, and Im thinking one of the following three modem/routers:
Linksys by Cisco WAG120N
Netgear DGN2000
D-Link DSL2740B

I'm leaning more towards the Netgear because I like how with a press of a button you can enable/disable WiFi. The Cisco one doesnt have that, but it looks so much nicer :P

That Cisco does look pretty amazing. :chrongue:
How much do you really need that one-touch connect/disconnect button?

Would you really ever need to disable wireless access though? These devices don't take much power and are designed to be on 24/7. And as long as your accesspoint is properly secured why even take the effort to switch it off when it's not being used?

Lets just say for my situation, this could be simpler if I had that button. But like i said, i could live without it.

That being said, which one would you recommend? Im guessing the Cisco one if your both saying I dont need the button :P
Also note, the wireless reciever will be a Netgear, just in case that makes a change in your mind :P
Personally, the Cisco one and the Netgear one are on par with eachother, so I need other opinions to help make the decision :)

RE: Wireless N questions
I have/had both Linksys and real Cisco hardware and very happy with it. No experience with your particular model, but the good old black and blue Linksys APs, and routers, and now a flashy Cisco accesspoint, and not for the looks, because all the networking hardware is in a place where I hardly ever see it anyway.

I'd go for the Linksys. But the Netgear one seems decent too, just don't have any experience with them, but looks good from the info on the site. Wouldn't pick the D-Link, doubtful how well integrated antennas which can be turned to a preferred position preform.
