  1. Hey you guys!!!

    I've just moved into a new apartment and I'm gonna be stuck with with DSL (used to have 35/35 FIOS...) and I'm gonna need a wireless router due to the wife. I will be connecting my computer with a RJ45 but she has a laptop.

    I already know I need to make sure it's secure since people like to tap in at apartment complexes blah blah blah.

    But I did some looking at newegg and I came down to these three, so let me know which you think or maybe you can suggest another.

    FWIW, I use the D-Link DGL-4500 Router and it works fine for me although I don't use the gaming related feature. Since I haven't used either of the other two routers I can't compare them.

    I'm using a Linksys E4200, but this was on my first wireless network so don't consider myself to be that knowedgable on the subject. Got the wireless network up a couple of months ago and it is working well. The D-Link DGL-4500 was also on my short list based on research I did prior to purchasing the components.
