I currently have a Netgear WGR614v7-VC router, I got this form our cable Co. And thinking of replaceing it with another one. I think this is a 54mbps, I have now 5 computers and a blue ray that all need internet access. Some of the ones I have seen on Best Buys web site are 150-300mbps. Most of the time we are on the net, watching videos or watching HD viedos. What is the best router that is not very expensive? Talking under $200. What I'm looking for is more capacity and speed with good security. Any one have input on what would be good?

Wireless N is the new hotness, make sure if you get one that your devices are compatible.

Start/Run/devmgmt.msc/network adapters/look at your wireless card

depends what you are doing. Internet, probably not. Transfering files on lan over wireless will be faster though.

I would get one online and just shop for the best price for wireless N if you have compatible hardware in your computers.
