    Hi. Moving into a new flat next week with 2 others. All 3 of us are gamers. 3 Xbox 360s, 2 PCs and my Macbook Pro all have to connect simultaneously. Since I don't really have the budget for another 8 port router (bought one for my family and now it turns out im moving out, gutted) my MBP and one other machine will have to be wireless. Any suggestions?

    In the UK and I'd say my budget was about £70, maybe £80. Its not a massive flat, quite large rooms but all one floor. I was considering this http://www.ciao.co.uk/D_Link_DGL_4300_GamerLounge_Wireless_108G_Gaming_Router__6202659 but it doesn't have a modem, so could someone also suggest a modem I could use with that? Thanks.

    I would recommend getting a wireless N router. Unfortunately the 360 doesn't use wireless N, but everything is moving towards that newer wireless with better range and speed.
    This is what I would suggest:

    Much better products and quality than D-Link in my personal experience and those I've talked to.
