Default good n based router

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?...oducts_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!

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.
