yeah not bad. But they are all pretty much the same. They all connect at relitvely the same speed etc.

I ended up buying a BIPAC Billion ADSl Router with 4 port switch, It only cost $160 about 9 months ago from http://www.megapc.com.au

that one was only 54, but considering my wireless card in my laptop barely exceeds that and the double speed over 3 metres wouldnt be noticable i hardly felt the extra $80 - $100 at the time was worth it
