I am considering going wireless but this is my concern. I love my comcast connection at 8mb download. I am an avid Soldier of Fortune 2 gamer and dont want to lose any speed. Right now I have a 4 port router that I got from my vonage days. When I am playing I make sure my wife is not downloading anything just to make sure I dont give my enemies any chances :-)
I am confused about wireless routers though. Since a router is kind of always transmitting...does that mean I am losing bandwidth at all times? If thats the case then I guess my current router will be a better fit right? I work for Radio Shack and we just drop the price on a netgear router for 39.99 plus you get a $20 gift card not to mention I get discount so what do you think?
PS I want the wirless so that I can use my laptop when in bed and not having to buy a 50' cable to do it.
