    Hey there,
    I am trying to find a decent yet cheap wireless router, so that when i get a Wii i could connect it to the internet.

    I have found these two routers, and was wondering which is better, since you guys have great knowledge on routers.

    I have dealt with Netgears customer service before, and quite frankly it was not so great. I also have read in a lot of places that Netgear and D-Link wireless routers keep dropping the signal. And as for the Moto, unfortunately it is a "discontinued" model. But both are sub $30 CAD after shipping.

    Netgear WGR614 http://www.netgear.com/Products/RoutersandGateways/GWirelessRouters/WGR614.aspx
    Moto WR850G

    I have a netgear, and based on my experience with it, i'll be using them for years to come. Very pleased over all.
    Never had any problems at all.

    How about the Netgear WGR614 vs Linksys WRT54GC?

    Well the wrt's are a different beast but in my place they cost 50% more than the 614s. as for ur original Q, i have 2 wgr614. i would recomend them to novices such as urself. be sure that whichever u buy can connect the Wii, though

    I had a lot of problems with Linksys routers in the past, and none whatsoever since I switched to Netgear.
