    I've had the Linksys Wireles-G Broadband Router with Speedbooster (WRT54GS-RM) for 2 years now. Recently bought a Lenovo laptop, everytime that laptop is turned on all the wireless connections stop working. I have 2 Macbook Pros running on the wireless and 1 PC connected directly to the Ethernet cable.

    So I'm looking to upgrade my router to a faster, secure and wider/longer signal, and of course be able to connect 4 computers at a time.

    I've heard the Belkin N+ Wireless router is a good choice but I know there are better ones out there.

    Thanks!

    I think it comes down to how much you want to spend.

    Side by side, my linksys 600 and AEBS run about the same. The AEBS is nicer for the guest netork and usb port

    One was $75 after rebate and the other was a little ovr $190 after taxes

    My budget is about $110? I don't mind spending a little more cause I need something that'll last. I'm gonna do some shopping both online and the store.

    I'd give Linksys a call and let them know about your problem. After trouble shooting the problem with you and not being able to fix it, they will most likely replace your router for free. (You might get a refurb...but its free).

    Linksys has a 3 year warranty and has always honored it for me, no questions asked if they couldn't trouble shoot it. If you are really just looking for N access then I'd go with the belkin. (Still call linksys though, get a replacement and then sale it for some extra cash.)
