      New to SKY BB - Best 'N' router/modem please?

      Hi

      I have the 'Sagem' black router here to make use of but not keen as its only G and not N.

      Can anyone tell me what benefots i may get from using an 'N' router?

      Then, what 'N' routers that WILL work and i can buy online, are best regardless of cost

      I want to use for XBOX, Web surfing, file downloads and streaming between laptop, xbox and web etc.

      I will have SKY BB Max package and am prediciting around 10-15mb download.

      I have seen 'Netgear DGND3300 RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N DSL Gateway' - is this a good one that would work

      Thanks

      As you were told before "A wireless N router will improve your wireless within your network. It will make no difference to your internet speed."

      In addition to this any wireless devices you have will have to have 'N' adapters to get any benefit. Gaming boxes using the internet work much better using a wired connection. You would be better spending on a Homeplug system which will give you ethernet speeds wherever you want it in your house.
