ok so right now i have a net-gear wgr614v5 but it sucks so i want a new one.
i need a router that has wireless, but also you can use it like a wired rouder.

i need it to be able to hook up to a wii and be able to play pc gams with no problems..such as i can't host on warcraft with this net-gear thing..and i want to be able to.
also i need one that isn't overly expensive.


thanks..

What sucks with the router? My 614v9 cannot reach its speed limit of 54Mb simply because there are no hi-speed internet company's that are capable of those speeds. Even my 15Mbps cable line is the bottleneck on my system. Perhaps you want the wireless "N" system now. Maybe a 300 Mbps router is good, if you have the ISP that can match it. I check into Verizon FIOS but it is still limited to 50 Mbps which my netgear 614 router can obtain, so theres not much improvement there for the same cost as cable.

I have had no problems whatsoever with my system and i have 8 computers on it, 4 wired and 4wireless. By the way Tiger direct has recertified netgear WPN 111 wireless USB dongles at a very good price($20). I have no problems with the ones i bought from there.
