    I have a Medialink Wireless N router I got off amazon awhile ago:

    I'm only getting 72 Mbit/s and I picked up a gigabit switch, so I'm looking to upgrade the wireless router.

    Any good recommendations? I've setup a linux file server and currently the wireless transfer speeds a little slow.

    I'm currently leaning towards an Asus brand router.

    Also, what type of speed's can I expect with my Retina, 150 or 300 Mbit/s?

    I prefer cisco routers, but I hear good things about asus routers.

    The retina can do 450 Mbit/s

    You shouldn't expect either. Real-world wireless performance is not going to get up that high.
