    I'm looking at getting a new computer in Feb sometime and want to look at setting up the old desktop, new desktop and laptop with a wireless N network.

    I've been looking at different products and nothing comes up as blowing the competition away. Main ones I've been looking at are the Linksys WRT350N/WMP300N as well as the Belkin F5D8231-4 WIRELESS ROUTER N1 and Belkin USB N1 (F5D8051).

    Guess I'm looking for suggestions on equipment that anyone might have used and had good results with with wireless N.

    Draft N right now is very buggy and is not a standard yet. Every networking company has their own proprietary version of it that is incompatible with the other brands, ie. if you buy a D-Link router you have to use a D-Link wireless card to get the N speeds.

    Now that being said, the WRT300/330/350N and WMP300N for PC is great: IF it is setup right. Alot of people just load the stock drivers and programs from the CD and thats it and then complain about not working. You sort of have to know how to configure the router manually to adjust the settings on these Linksys routers and then delete the terrible network management software but when you get them set right, they are amazing. Blazing speed, great range, few signal drops, and 270mbps..
