Wireless Hardware Recomendations?


Wireless Hardware Recomendations?

I currently have a wired connection using a Dlink DSL-504 modem/router. I want to expand this to include 108Mbps wireless capability. I guess I have three main options

- 1) Buy a new all-in-one modem/router/wireless-access point, and dump my current router
- 2) Buy a new wireless access point and plug it into my current router
- 3) Buy a new wireless broadband router (no modem), turn off its "routing" features, and plug it into my current router, i.e. use it as a wireless point (this option comes from the fact that many wireless routers seem cheaper than stand-alone access points!).

I am currently leaning toward option 3.

Does anyone have any recommendations about what products/brands to go for or avoid?
All suggestions gratefully accepted

Wireless Hardware Recomendations?


I am currently using a Netgear wireless ADSL Router and it works great for me.

Netgear DG834GT
108 Mbps 2.4 GHz 802.11g
4 port 10/100 Mbps
ADSL 2+ compat
Double Firewall ( Nat + SPI )
802.11b/g compat

I can use my laptop no problem in the garden and my main pc is connected via a cable, I have also used the spare pc in another room ( wireless ) with no problems.

So up to now it's been great.
