Im down to the last 3 in the all time selection to upgrade my current D-Link G604T to one of the following.
I need a decent ADSL2+ router with at least 2 Ethernet ports and good Wi Fi.


3CRWDR300A-73   -  3com 11n Firewall Router All In One


LINKSYS WAG160N Wireless-N ADSL2/2+ Ultra RangePlus Gateway w/ 4-Port 10/100 Switch


LINKSYS WAG54G 54Mbps Wireless-G ADSL2 VPN/ Firewall All-In-One DSL Gateway router & access point


SO...  which of these 3 will it be?   


I almost want to flip a coin..... 
I just hooked up to Vodafone Red Network today.... went from approx  2M DL  to about 14M DL  with my d-link

Used Belkin, Netgear, Dlink and Linksys, initially hated Linksys back 5-6 years ago but their newer products are top knotch. I havent used you second choice specifically but have used the G equivelent ( no not your third option) and it was rock solid.

If you're going for a Linksys device my general advice is to ignore the WAG range and stick with the WRT models. Typically the WAG range is a lower end device as has a lot more problems.
