I am looking to purchase a router and NewEgg has the Linksys WRT54GL 802.11b/g Wireless Broadband Router up to 54Mbps/ Open Source DD-WRT on sale right now for $49.99 (which is $30.00 off the base price). However, someone told me that Linksys has some sort of virus or issue going on with them right now. So, what is a decent router I can get for gaming? My PC will be plugged in through a Ethernet cable, but I will most likely run a PS3 and Xbox off of a wireless connection, so wireless would be preferred but not a necessity.
Well, the apartment I'm moving into is only about 700 sq ft, so it won't need to be that long. Our connection will be 1.5.-3 mbps. Would getting a Gigabit card do anything to improve gaming? Or is it just a waste of money?
