Wireless router /modem recommendation


Active Member
I'm adding a emachines 1401 to my setup next week to use as a HTPC and want to upgrade my router to wireless n.

As I use Xbox live a lot, I want something that will work well with it - especially open NAT.

I've been looking at a Netgear N300 or the Belkin Play Max. Has anybody any experience of these? Will one be more suitable than the other?

Thanks in advance.

I would not recommend anything Belkin for Xbox Live, they just don't get on. NAT issues or issues with the wireless adapters.

I have plenty of recommendations on my own site which you can google yourself (can't post a link here)
