Hey guys I was wondering if anyone had any experience with any of these products. I'm torn between going for a d-link router and pci card or a netgear router and a netgear pci card.

The D-Link Router is this DI-524 (http://c1com.co.nz/shop/step1.php?number=4024) and the PCI card is the DWL-G510 (http://c1com.co.nz/shop/step1.php?number=3863).

The Netgear Router is the WGR614 (http://c1com.co.nz/shop/step1.php?number=1596) and the PCI card is the WG311 (http://c1com.co.nz/shop/step1.php?number=1600).

Both are around the same price and seem to have the same features, it comes down to which one is easier to set up, has better range, higher speeds more secure (plus easier to set up security), more relaible, beter firmware, etc. Could anyone tell me which Router and PCI card is better overall or if one has any problems/limitations?

Please bear in mind that I will be using a D-Link Modem and am running XP Service Pack 2, I don't know if this will cause any compatability issues. Also I will be connecting to Xbox Live through it, they should both be compatible acording to the Xbox website.

Thanks very much in advance

i shouldl think that if you want to connect your d link modem and xbox thru it you'll need the router........
