    Hey guys,

    Im from the UK, I can only (At the moment get 2mbit ADSL with 256K up)

    I do own this, Now sadly i also own a netgear DG834GT ......And oh Sweet friggin jesus, this ADSL/Wireless router is shocking.

    Now im fedup,

    I had a previous netgear router that supported Wireless B at 11mbps that overheated at a lan and melted....literally.

    I thought i'd give them the benefit of the doubt, MISTAKE bought this DG834GT and its alot Smaller, Gets alot hotter, And drops my connection alot more, The wireless is......non existant dropping connections and not allowing reconnections until a total reboot of the router.....Genius

    SO! I want a linksys, I heard a mention of cisco somewhere on a site about linksys which is always a good thing.

    Now i went to buy this


    But i also saw


    now i want to buy the latest one possible, bearing in mind i use ADSL and not Cable.....if the srx400 is the best for me where could i buy it, as all sites i come across are american....

    Thanks guys all help is appriciated.

    Those routers will only give you a speed boost if you use wireless adapters that also ahve those technologies. If you are just using standard G or B cards to connect to the router I would reccomend just using a regular Linksys WRT54G as the others will give you no benefit.

    I agree with not buying features you can not access but be careful when shopping for a WRT54G. The latest version (v5) is using a new OS called VxWorks. As with any complete and total redesign, this router is currently unstable. If you can get an older on (v1-v4) this would be a safer bet. Good Luck

    this may be a little confusing, but SRX400 > SRX > SRX200 at least by claims of range and speed performance, and most imporantly prices... so, the WRT54GX4 > WRT54GX >WRT54GX2

    Question: Does the use of two wireless radios and multiple antennas in MIMO products (SRX, SRX200 or SRX400 based) allow them to have a better range with standard 802.11g compliant cards than between a non-SRX router and an 802.11g card?

    Yeah, using a standard 802.11g card with a MIMO router will definitely improve performance (range/speed) for that card.

    Oh, and I'm wondering why you picked up the SRX200 when you said that you wanted the best, currently the SRX 400 is the best, followed by the original SRX, then SRX200.
