    So my router is pretty lame (WRT110) and my iPhone won't connect to it anymore sooo.. I have a certificate from Best Buy and I want to go buy one either right now or tomorrow. What would you guys recommend? Less than 100 dollars would be great too. :D

    i have linksys WRT160N and works great, also got apple airport express and extreme and love them both, airport extreme is 180 but it is well worth it and will last a long time, i use my airport express to make a larger network when paired with the extreme, airport express is great, it is very powerful and fast for $100 and can run a network, my parents own the linksys and can say i have not had one problem since i got it 8 months ago, all three work great but if u want under $100 go airport express, but remember only 10 devices can hook up to it

    Unfortunately, my old-ish Compaq Presario doesn't have a wireless card, and I don't want to buy one lol So I can't use an Airport Express/Extreme even though it looks to be good :\

    I believe the Airport Extreme has multiple ethernet ports. The Express only has 1 which is only for the modem. I don't want to spend 170 dollars on the extreme.

    I would get a Linksys router that has 802.11n and gigabit ethernet + can be flashed with DD-WRT standard or higher.

    For reference i have a WRT350N.
