Which wireless router to buy?

Which wireless router to buy?

Which wireless router to buy?

(OP)
I have 2 desktop, laptop(802.11b), and Comcast phone and internet. I do a lot of downloading...videos, torrents, itunes. I am trying to setup a wireless home network.  I don't know which way to go, "G" or "N"? .  Which brand of router is better?  I want something that has the latest security, port control, firewall, speedbooster, wont lock up if there is a lot of traffic. I was thinking about Linksys WRT54GS or Dlink WBR-2310. Any recommendations?

RE: Which wireless router to buy?

Make sure you encrypt your network so other people don't use your connection and slow it down.  I would go with the latest and greatest technology but know that it doesn't do all it promises just yet.  I had to do some testing on wireless routers last year to compare the differences.  If you have a need for any kind of industrial wireless products, here is a link to check some out:  http://www.icpdas-usa.com/industrial_wireless_products.html
