Hmm which section do I need?

What you think of this?
Newegg.com - D-Link DGL-4300 IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g Wireless Gaming Router - Retail

Is it really worth extra money?

Or just get this?
Newegg.com - D-Link DI-524 IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g High Speed Wireless Router - Retail

Go with the 4300. It blows away the lower line Dlink routers.

I've never had any issues out of Linksys... albeit, maybe a tad over priced, depending on where you get it... but over all a solid performer (I have 3 myself now.. wired and wireless)

WRT54G. Ive have two now (one as an AP, one as a bridge, running DD-WRT of course) and Ive never seen a better router for the same price. Ive had a fair share of Dlinks and they were just crap imo.
