2 general wire router questions

  1. Looking to replace my current router and would like to know...

    1) Will I notice a real difference between 54 Mbps and 105 Mbps? I have a cable modem, downloading around 6 Mbps. Not heavy gaming, some live video streaming.

    2) I'm replacing a D-Link most likely with a Linksys router. Must I or should I replace the D-Link made wire PCI card as well.

    Thanks for your input. I've learned a lot reading your forums over the past week.

    if you had problems with the nic yes
    if you think you need more control yes
    gigabit nics have gotten pretty cheap
    stay away from noname brands and realtek
    the 2 trouble free ones on my end are intel and 3com
    intel has a great rma system both standard nics have good manageability
