    Hi guys...

    Currently got 2 pc's and a laptop i want to network together so they can all share the blueyonder cable connection i have..

    Whats the best wireless router to buy ? budget is £100 but bear in mind i need 2 wireless cards for the PC's (Laptop has wireless built in)

    I was thinking: Netgear WGT624 108Mbps Wireless Router (NW-031-NG)

    And two: Belkin F5D7000UK 802.11g Wireless PCI Adapter

    Any ideas ?


    Thanks guys! :)

    I recall seeing some comments from people who said thier Linksys and Netgear routers were overheating (108Mbps variety), but it may be individual models so it may be worth checking thier forums. I'd steer clear of Belkin.

    I'd recommend the Linksys WRT54G with a couple of Linksys WMP54G cards or the D-Link DI-624+ (only as I have one on my BY pipe) and a couple of D-Link DWL-G520+ cards. No problems in the last year with either. Either setup will fit your budget.
