Best Router For PS3/Wii

Postby Razorbacx » Thu Dec 31, 2009 11:06 am

Looking to buy a good router to allow us to hook up our PS3 & Wii to the internet and with so many options out there I'm not sure which one will be the best. Do I need an N Router or will the G work well enough? We have an 80GB PS3 that's about a year old if that helps.

Thanks,

Both are G, so you'd be fine with a G Router. That being said, G is going to start going away, so why not future proof and get a N router. I've always been a fan of Linksys and have my Wii and PS3 hooked to a Linksys Wireless N Router

Any particular model? Does it provide a secure wireless network or do I need to add any additional security measures that won't create online play problems?

Thanks!

WRT400N, has the typical security (WPA1/2, WEP, etc). Its dual band, one is wireless N and the other is Wireless G.

I'm currently using a Netgear 'G' wireless. Works fine, most of the time although it has been dropping out a bit occasionally, but maybe just because it's getting old. I would recommend having a look at the Apple Airport (My fave router ATM) It's got gigabit ports, N Wireless, latest security protocols and printer or hard drive sharing. Of course, a lot of that is only relevant for PCs.
