Is it that important to have a few files finish a bit quicker? If your using the wireless to transfer the files then your gigabit connection is out the window coz wireless cant transfer anywhere near that speed.

Yeah get the $30 one and if you have files that are that large that require gigabit connection maybe get an external hdd

@muz Why by an external hdd by the time I pay for that I could get that router.

I transfer DVD rips from my computer to my PS3. and the ps3 is gigabyte compatible.

Well ok yeah dont buy an external hdd . And if you would use the gigabit enough to warrent the extra cost then go with it but if you are only gonna use say every 4 months no bother so its down to when you use it and how much i suppose

Yeah. When ever I watch a movie I just "get" it and put it on my ps3. That's about the only thing my ps3 is good for lol.

I will only buy Linksys products for networking. I got a chaep D-Link Wireless G PCI card and I could never get 5 bars on it in the same area where a Linksys Wirelss G PCI card could get 5 bars. It's currently in my parents PC because it gets 4 bars and they only use their system for internet, I transfer stuff over the network. I also have a Linksys wireless G router, wired router, and switch. Thw wireless and switch work fine, I was just given the wired router, so I haven't tested it.

Ive got a media streamer in my living room and its connected to my TV, i stream films down to it and i have a standard router and it works fine. If you can justify the extra money your paying for a gigabit connection and your actually gonna get loads of use from it then get it, i just dont personally see you getting much more of a benefit from it.

If you do get it, i would be interested to know how much difference in speed you get, so maybe you could do a test and transfer a few files with your current router, then the same files with the new one and time it.
