I know questions along this line get asked all the time, but here I go anyway! I'm looking for a wireless-N router, and have narrowed my selection down to the following:
Gigabit ports aren't essential, hence choosing these two models. Has anyone got any views on either of them?
Searching on the net gives a real mixed response rate to them both - some 'expert reviews', rate them both, while some consumer reviews slate them, but then other consumer reviews rave about them too!
Will the wifi connectivity be similar with them both, and do they need to be matched with an adapter by the same manufacturer? I assume not, since 802.11n is 802.11n, or are not all created equal?
Or will the wifi performance be massively better by going up to the next model of each of these, (the Linksys WRT310N/WRT320N, or Netgear WNR3500)?
It'd be connected on the internet side to a Dynalink RTA1320 modem/router, and on the LAN side hardwired to blu-ray player and TV, and wifi'd to the computer. The idea being to relocate the current RTA1320 from where the computer is to where the entertainment stuff is in the lounge (with the wifi router), and then wireless enable the computer to stream TV recordings to the TV. (Or turf the RTA1320, and get an all-in-one? Less flexibility though, I believe.)
Any advice greatly appreciated, to help clear up the confusion currently in my head!
