I'm in search of a wireless modem/router for my pc, ps3 and ipod touch. Preferably something under $200. Any recommendations?
I've found these 2 which appear to be alright...

I'm leaning towards the N modem/router since it only costs a few dollars more and has better technology?

Pretty sure the N version you have linked to is just a wireless router and doesn't have ADSL2+ router built in.

Yea you may be right - Rather confusing as the specs are different on every site I found it :confused:
I would double-check that it has an RJ-11 socket on it to connect to your ADSL/phone line. (And not just an RJ45 WAN port)

Either way I personally still wouldnt go near the Belkin one, never been a big fan of theirs ...

This router on the other hand:

I will second staying away from the Belkin, they seem to have DNS issues among other issues...
and also second getting the Linksys WAG200

I have a WAG200G at a client site and it never needs touching, so, on that basis, I would add to the recommendations for this one. It is only $129 at DSE at the moment.
