it depends on what kind of network you are running, is it an 802.11b network or an 802.11g network. I'd stay away from netgear, it isn't all that good, but linksys or belkin are good brands. anything will work really, just as long as it's the same as your network (b or g).

just look on the router and see if it says...it should say, if not, go to the website for the manufacturer and look up your model number and it should tell you which it is.

it works with 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11g+ wireless connection. So that's any of them. Ill probably just go with the cheaper one.
