I'm looking for a wireless router for my Shaw modem.
I've been looking at this (http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/PID-MX20005(ME).aspx) and from the reviews on MemEx, it seems like a pretty good router.
Can anyone else recommend some routers?
That would be great guys, thanks.

I have the lower end router, the dir615, and i love it, hasnt let me down yet, and its fast as hell. Ive had a few dropped connections but i think its from interference around here because my old linksys wrt54g did that as well on occasion. I did want that one but i couldnt justify spending that much for just home use.

thats the linux version
its a great router + you can add firmwares which pretty much change the whole thing around making it better

D-link WBR 615 Excellent n-draft router.

Its nice because its cheap but n and super quick.

Would I need to get a newer USB adapter as well?
Or could I stick with my DWL-G132

Extreme-i is 10Mbps downstream. With PowerBoost you can see up to, I think, 18Mbps. Wireless G regularly connects at double these speeds. Speed isn't something you need to worry about.

Your DWL-G132 is 802.11g. According to Mibz' post your current adapter is sufficient for Xtreme-i. So no, you dont need a new adapter.

DIR-655 or better yet, DIR-825. I have had both, and the one you linked to, DIR-825 is by far the best (dual band router, 2 completely isolated wireless networks from 1 router (this is important if you stream video over wifi))
