    hey guys i am thinking of getting a wierless G router. i heard that linksys isnt really good, which do u guys think is the best the d-link one? i heard the ones with teh orinoco chipset are the best, also because d-link is like 10 bucks cheaper than the linksys

    I say D-Link.

    Some Linksys stuff has trouble with cable providers here for whatever reason.

    I've had trouble using Linksys products on the Mac.

    D-Link has the option to use their 'extreme' router + NIC for transfer rates up to 108mbit/13.5mbyte/second.

    And its cheaper! :D

    if you guys watch the broken though www.thebroken.org they explain how linksys routers arent safe enough or somthing i forgot watched it like 2 months ago if not more. my friend has a linksys 54g one and i like it its nice but the others like d-link are cheaper which doesnt really matter just a perk, and seem to be more secure.

    the nature of wireless right now is that it is not secure, no matter what type of encryption you use...it's getting better, but the encryption algorithms are weak/broken so don't expect to be secure when using wireless!!

    have a linksys wr54g on a cable line and never had any problems with it, but then again I was always pretty paranoid, with security. :rolleyes:
