I need to connect two computers a xbox 360 and a wii to the internet and a ps3 soon. one pc and the three 360 and the ps3 will be wired and the other pc will be wireless and the wii is also wireless so i will need a good wireless router both computers will be running a dfi board one will be a new core 2 duo rig with the new dfi crossfire board. im looking for something that has a 1000mbps will be sharing very large files and i might need to take to a lan party or if i want to host my own. i only need a 4 port and i really dont know much about routers so im only looking to spend like 110 or 120 without shipping.

Your not going to get 1000mbps out of wireless.

nor are you going to find a router for that.

 

 

routers that support oc-12 (fiber) are in excess of $8000 for a basic one. they have gigabit out over the lan ports. however routers that are copper input based (t3, t1, dsl, cable) are ALL 100mb. why? cuz NONE of those inputs can even come close to 100mbps. no sense in going any higher and jacking the price up some more.

If you really want Gigabit network, do what we have set-up in our student house here:

 

Netgear 8-Port Gigabit Switch + Netgear Wireless 4-Port router

 

Plug the switch into one of the ports on the router, and plug all the PCs and consoles into the switch.

 

I believe the PS3 and possibly the Xbox360 support gigabit etherenet. So file transfer should be faster from them too.

 

imo, the giga bit switch is well worth it. Can transfer like 10 GB from my PC to my house mates in under 8 mins.

The Linksys N 2.0 router that ComputerWorld tested was a gigabit router, and I believe it is going to retail in the $200-250 range. Otherwise, a gigabit switch directly connecting the gigabit-capable computers is your best bet.
