    Which Router should I get?

    I'm looking to get a new router and wanting to buy the Linksys E1200 or E2500. My xbox is about 30 feet away from where my router will be. I just use wifi for Internet and xbox live. What is the best router I can get for gaming?

    I had a basic Belkin at my house and my internet was awful (I have 7 roommates, 8 people total). We all pitched in and bought the Apple AirPort Extreme and I love it. Only issue is there is only one port for an Ethernet but as a house we don't have an issue with it. We can have all 8 of us on the internet and it is not slow at all. Prior to getting the AirPort extreme, the router could not hold more than 2 or 3 computers on it. It's a bit pricey but it's so easy to deal with and plugs right into the wall.

    I too have had a Belkin before and it produced a lot of problems.


    I have a Cisco Systems Linksys E2000 right now and it works good. Have had a handful of computers connect to it along with a couple of iPhones and it still ran pretty smooth.
