    I have been spending the last hour reading different router specifications looking for one that has good reviews and I fail to find one where I can use both N and G wireless connectivity with getting mainly good posts.

    I'm not really concerned with one that is easy to set up, I'll be willing to put the effort to figure out how to set up any router if anyone can recommend a good router that can do both G and N at the same time. If that is not possible, I'll be willing to settle for just a good G router.

    Thanks in advance!

    I bought this one a few months ago, it's been great.

    It can run mixed 802.11n, 802.11g and 802.11b concurrently, or run just n and g, n and b, or just n g or b.

    Sweet! No problems with running G/N concurrently? Also, does it have a modem built in because the router that I have that has crapped out has a modem built in and I don't have a modem.

    Thanks for the recommendation!

    It doesn't have a DSL or Cable modem built in, it's just the wireless router. I've had no problems running N/G concurrently, my desktop uses a G nic, and my wife's laptop uses N, and they both get decent coverage all through the house and even garage with the router in the basement. As for the modem, you'll have to buy that separate, or you'll need to get a different router with one built in. It shouldn't be hard to find a used wired cable or dsl modem on something like Craigslist for cheap.

    Anything that can support DD-wrt, or tomato firmware will be quite good. DSL or Cable?

    Thanks 0ddity, I will look for a modem!

    Looking for DSL router. I never had any experience with DD-wrt or tomato firmware. I'll look into those.
