Hi guys,

I'm looking for a wireless router to replace an older belkin wireless g router (cant remember the exact model number) But essentially i have 10mbit/2 cable and would like a resonable wireless router (second hand is good) that will allow a good number of connections as  the old belkin would always go fast for a short burst then drop all my torrents.
Also running a speed test from my computer which was directly behind where the wireless router about 2m away but through a wall could only achieve between 2-6mbit speeds.

Am i to expect this using a wireless router or are the newer ones better?

Any advice would be great.

If you are going to run torrents then I suggest you use a router such as the Linksys WRT54GL running DD-WRT or Tomato or similar. Most budget domestic grade routers dont have enough memory to support hundreds of open connections that Torrents force on them, so most if not all fall over toote sweet.
