    Not point in getting an 802.11n router unless all your devices are able to use 802.11n

    I like Netgear routers. Nice and easy to set up, work well and never had a problem with one.

    cost wise g routers are cheaper.

    Speed wise, big difference, but you will only notice this if you are streaming data between machines connected to the router. You should shouldn't see any difference in speed when accessing the internet as the cable connection will be the bottle neck, unless of course you have some stupidly mega fast cable connection.
