Hi All,

I'm moing home (yay) and want to move onto xnet's naked dsl, and take advantage of not needing telecom anymore.

I have a reasonably complex network - in that I have a macbook pro, vaio laptop, server and desktop - plus an xbox 360, ps3 and home media machine.

The two laptops need wireless connectivity, one needs wireless g - the other wireless n. The rest of my devices are wired. The reason for wireless n being I use the mac to move some very large files around at times.

Ok, so - the scenario is this; worldxchange don't provide a router that has wireless n, so;

Am I better off getting the WAG310G, then purchasing a seperate wireless N router and bridging that, or;

Getting the AG310 and getting something like the Apple Airport Extreme to do both my G and N needs?

Any idea's? Currently i'm thinking option 2 is the better one, as it's a little easier to grasp in my head, and from a network map point of view.

Any help mucho appreciated!

Any advice on this at all? I need to make a decision as the router needs to be purchased tomorrow - so I have time to organise connection prior to move day!

WorldxChange apparently need the mac address of the device before they can action the account change. :D
