    I have always used cat5 and want to upgrade to wireless, I saw a good deal on this d-link combo ( LINK HERE )
    I like the fact it comes with a laptop network card, because I will also have to get a card for my other computer.
    the price is good after MIR but should I pass and get something else, I don't have a whole lot extra with the holidays and everything. :hs:
    thanks

    thats not a bad router, and that's a great price including the card... I'd say go for it. But if you already have cat5 ran for the desktop(s), then I'd keep them wired... use wifi for notebooks only.

    You can never go wrong with DLINK, for home use i strongly recommend DLINK or Linksys only!

    dlink is a good recommendation, but I've found linksys to be one of the worst soho products you can buy.

    I haven't had any problems with my Linksys WRT54G or any other Linksys product.

    That combo is pretty good deal. I spend a lot of time with all of their products and they're both good devices.

    I had problems with Dlink in the past, usually with it not giving out IP's correctly. If you can go with Linksys. I've never had an issue with their products.

    Personally, I've had better luck with netgear.

    DLINK sucked for me.
    And Linksys has been good and bad depending on where i've installed them.

    I recommend Linksys
