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?

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.
