Default Wireless Router

Ok im looking for a decent router for under $60. it will be used for some gamming but not much since it will be at my grandmothers house. also i just got a brand new desktop for christmas (atleast most of it) and was hoping to get a wireless card for it that will handle very heavy loads from games. it has a ASUS P7P55D-E Pro mobo so there is plenty of room under my gtx 465. if you could source off newegg.com it would be a great help...that way i dount pay taxes and cheaper shipping!

Do you want one internal or do you mind having a usb model?

They work about the same from what I have seen. For your motherboard I would reccomend Newegg.com - NETGEAR WG311 IEEE 802.11b/g PCI Wireless Adapter Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates 64/128-Bit WEP that one as it would be a netgear compatable with the router that JCB mentioned earlier.

Um, sorry guys but I don't agree with going with just a b/g speed router/adapter. With the prices coming down so far on N speed equipment, you might as well make the jump to it now.

Here's my current router (the price is usually around $50 as it's on sale often, though not right now).
Here's one I've used for many clients. Not as many features, but still decent.
Here's one that's alright, but only if you want to use DD-WRT. I've read good things about it from people who do use it that way, but the stock firmware is shotty from just a quick google search.

Here's an adapter.

FYI, almost ALWAYS, if you are going to be gaming, you should go wired. Just a little forewarning. Most hardcore gamers I know won't put up with wireless. It has it's limitations.

good advice dude one question for the user would be does his internet connection even have the capabilities for N speed? If it doesnt why waste the money on it? If it can then I would advise he uses yours if not then stick with b/g connection becuase the n will be a waste of money..
