Hi there

I currently have a D-link G604T box (with 802.11g, 10/100 Lan and ADSL2 modem). I want to upgrade to the 802.11n and 10/100/1000. Does anyone do all this in one box yet? If not has anyone heard of an near future releases?

If it had to be done with 2 boxes (ie wireless router and seperate modem) what would people recommend?

It is for home use, video streaming, not gaming.

Cheers
Matt

Yup here (http://www.netgear.co.nz/Products/RoutersandGateways/RangeMaxNEXTWirelessRoutersandGateways/DG834N.aspx?detail=System+Requirements)

Except for the gigabit ethernet.

Hope you've got a few thousand, if you want to use 11.n on all of the computers. The adapters etc arent cheap.

Looks like the price for this ranges from 336 or so to 448.00

The PCI adapters would be around 180-190 each

Yeah, you'd be lucky to find an all in one with gigabit ethernet.

You'd do well to get that router Speedy linked to, and something like this (http://c1com.co.nz/shop/step1.php?number=1916).

you could use the router you have at the moment as just a modem and connect it up to something like what they're giving away in pc world this month. The N1 Vision, looks to be a pretty cool gadget. See here (http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentview.asp?partid=5259)
They're around $270
Or one of these (http://www-nz.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=NZ%2FLayout&cid=1166859621886&packedargs=site%3DNZ&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=2188619526B03)
they go for around $300 plus adaptors.

That's not a bad idea - hadn't thought of that one, thanks hazza.:thumbs:

Mediacentre already has gigabit ethernet and laptop has "n" so want to make the most of it really.
