the max budget is like 200$

thanks for your help

Edit. 200 hundred posts

I have this one and it works great. Streams with no lag to my PS3, gigabit on all ports (WAN included which is rare) and wireless N. I love the thing.

looks pretty good but the reviews arent to promising, is the firmware really that bad?

checked out the linksys website and they had a really detailed vid about it, its looks good but i'll have to think about it,

was setup easy?

I'm using whatever the latest is and I have yet to have any issues. No random drops/slowness, hasn't needed any power-cylcing or restarting or any other kind of issue.

It came with a setup CD, but I never use that. Manual web-based setup was very simple, even with the two wireless networks it has.

That varies on a few things. First and for most is your service and location relitive to the server. Second would be the modem, with the router being the last thing on the chain to have any effect on the speed.
