    I just setup a Linksys G for my brother. It was easy to setup and configure and works great! He has a small house, and gets decent reception throughout.

    Belkin G

    Tho I personally prefer the LinkSys. There was a rebate on the Belkin. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    I'm debating... there's a rebate on all of them, but the Belkin G is currently $10 after rebate... (Best Buy)... The LinkSys is $50.

    I prefer the Linksys as I have never had any issues with the kit from them. I have in the past had problems with the Belkin Cards in laptops. At home though i have the Belkin G set up as it was cheaper. I have had no problems in the 3 months it has been in.

    And they were more then $10 [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

    I am using Netgear G. Single base in kitchen (centre of house) and a Netgear G adapter on Desktop and MSI G inside laptop (Centrino)

    No problems, although I found taht because the adapter antenna on the desktop is effectively on the exact opposite side of teh PC to the base station signal, it was necessary to boost its reception.

    I used a Netgear antenna and put it on top of the desk's shelf unit. Works perfectly every time now.

    The usability of the Netgear stuff is excellent. (I think)

    D-Link 54MB ADSL Modem\Wireless Router

    I can browse the net anywhere in the house, shame my notebook just died. I guess after 5 years it had enough of me.

    Linksys. It was so bulletproof after six months of hard use (Multiple VPNs, VoIP devices, Gaming, Server port redirects, etc...) I bought one for my mother's house. It was $30 after rebates.
