    Right now, I have 3 computers connected to my network with a wired Linksys Router. Since I will be getting a laptop soon that comes with a wireless card and also a PSP, I'm thinking about going wireless. I need a router that will go just as fast as a wired router. Anyone have suggestions on what are good wireless routers? And once I get that wireless router, are there different speed wireless PCI adaptors that I get for my other desktop PCs, or can I get anyone I want and it will go just as fast as the router allows?

    No matter what speed is advertised on a wireless router it will neevr reach it, at least by today's standards, i think 108 mbps is the fastest advertised. Its quite sad but its the truth. Theoretically the closer you are to the router the faster it will go but if you are 20ft or plus don't expect anything close to the advertised speed for file transfers. Surfing the net is ok though.

    125Mbps is the fastest I've seen (consumer-grade, at least) but 108Mbps is the most widely accepted, and most reliable.

    I have acheived 80Mbps on my 108Mbps connection (under optimal conditions, of course)

    Even connected at 40-54mbps on my wireless, I've found it to be very laggy, and not nearly as fast as even a 10BT wired network.
