    I am looking for a wireless 'N' router with at least 4 gigabit ports that can be used with a Virgin superhub in modem mode and Western Digital Live drive, any recommendation?

    im also in the market for a new N router for use with the super Hub.

    Currently using a 4 year old D Link DIR655 which doesnt give great wireless speeds upstairs and my MBP keeps getting kicked off the network.

    Have been looking at the Netgear Rangemax WNDR3700

    anygood?

    everything is so quick now compared to the D Link and im getting full speed (30mb) on my ipad

    Thanks for the suggestions but the above is no good for working with virgin cable system as it is an ADSL2 modem/router, I like the look of the Netgear Rangemax WNDR3700 but can't find one in stock near me, same goes for the LINKSYS E3200 Dual Band Wireless Router I have been looking at.

    I went and bought the Netgear Rangemax WNDR3700, had to travel to an out of town store... it is a nice router, works well, I can see the speed difference with having the Gigabit ports when using the WD my book live.
