I'm looking for a new home router, i'm still using a wireless-G so ofcourse I need to upgrade. I would like to be able to stream form my media server to a couple different TVs in the house (boxee or Revue, haven't decided yet).

So I'm looking at these two routers http://amzn.to/hpMTD2 (TRENDnet) and http://amzn.to/h9srtZ (Netgear) they are about the same price but I'm not familiar with TRENDnet and they have a $70 discount on the product (they are doing a monthly promo on newegg as well).

I'm a bit confused about which would actually be faster and is a better bang for the big, the netgear boasts 300+300 (which I assume to mean you can have 2 connections for up to 300Mbps speeds) while the TRENDnet is boasting 450Mbps which I assume means for a single connection.

Maybe there is another better bang for the buck 300+ product out there you recommend? Or of these two products, which would you recommend I choose?

Linksys E2000 or E3000

I ended up with the LinkSys E3000. It's nice that it has the UPnP server but I haven't really figured out how to use that yet but I will. I did not like that it required a CD to setup the router because the standard admin password "password" was not setup when trying to access 192.168.1.1 and no other instructions were provided beyond using the CD. I don't have a CD-drive on my laptop so this sucked.
