    I tried going wireless N FTW!!! about three years ago and after spending all that money on the relatively new tech at the time it wasn't too long before I got myself a decent switch and started running gigabit ethernet all through the house. Cheaper faster cheaper more reliable and cheaper.

    I have a Dualband RangeMax Wireless N router and it is fine for FPS gaming passing through 3 walls and about 10m - running 2 pcs gaming simultaneously.
    BUT I am all for wired but I am renting atm so N is my best option. I'm building a house atm and we've put CAT6 through all the main walls terminating in the study, and I'll be getting a Netgear gigabit/Wireless N DGND3700 router to power it :D
    (Only a small network and only a few PCs need wired access - 2 gaming and 2 HTPCs) so a 4port router is more than sufficient.

    Somebody should post that article every time a member of the Liberal party/a supporter of the Liberal party/a news.com.au commenter says that wired connections are a waste of time and money.
