    Default Wireless Router

    I'm looking for a wireless router for my Shaw modem.
    I've been looking at this 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.

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

    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))
