not sure if this should be here under "Hardware" or under "Networking"

i was just wondering what kind of stuff to look for when trying to get a wireless router? the only i know to look for is the 2 standards b and g but thats about it. like what is the main diff between this two routers?


also, im assuming this has been asked before but what brands are recommeded or better what brands to stay away from?

802.11b is a standard that uses UTP cables, transmits up to 11mbs
802.11g is a standard that uses UTP cables, tramsmits up to 54mbs*

*some hardware manufacturers claim to be able to use 108mbs on 802.11g standard

you should go with a brand that has a decent reputation behind it, has options for future uses, linksys, d-link have good names in the SOHO dsl router community. I would suggest a WRT series linksys, that si my brand of choice.
other then that they mostly all have the general options for routine web surfing.
