Hello team.

My father has bought a new laptop,He lives in Australia.

http://www.centrecom.com.au/catalog/product_info.php?sort=2a&products_id=50468

now he wants a good reliable wireless router for it,nothing too expensive probably between $80-$100.All he does is browse the net and does a little work with web pages etc.There will be an older desktop hooked up to it as well.
This is the page he sent me with the routers.

Thank you.

I have been using a Linksys WAG320N Dual-Band Wireless-N ADSL2 Modem Gigabit Router for about a year without any problems whatsoever :)

Sweet as,I was just going to recommend mine which is a Linksys WAG200G.What would be the closest one to it?

N-Wireless is pointless unless you specifically need the additional range, if all he's doing is browsing. Definitely not a "must" IMO.

The WAG200G overheats semi-regularly. Go for one of the Asus ones on the site listed.
