Since my new laptop will be n based, Iím considering upgrading to n based router.

What are some recommendations, I was considering some d-link, have d-link now, no issues.

The Netgear one looks pretty cool.

This D-Link one is cool looking too. http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=416&products_id=6601

Looking cool is the main thing to look for when buying a router.

Also the fact it has the word "Xtreme" in the name is very important to any new piece of hardware.

Agreed, <3 my old DGL it's still running well, I'm just waiting for final N spec, yeah I know...it's firmware upgradeable, but you know how companies love to make us pay for stuff twice. :P

I'd say go with the D-Link GamerLounge ftw, fo sho!

END OF DAYS!

Rather have a DLINK over a Buffalo. Or Bison as we call them here.

I have the DGL-4500 and it's great. The only drawback is that it doesn't support the 5ghz (N-A) standard and the 2.4Ghz (G-N) standard at the same time.

is there any router that actually supports both bands at the same time?

I have a DGL4500 as well. The wireless covers the entire house with 100% signal strength. It also covers most of our block lol.

The only thing I don't like about is that the GameFuel table limits the number of QoS rules you can make whereas the 4300 I had dozens of rules setup.

EDIT: Heres our wifi coverage overlay, and this was tested on a POS Wireless-B adapter

i would get DGL4500, but it can't support both bands at the same time.

I want to run the laptop in 5ghz and pda can only do 2.4ghz
