    The main difference between N and G is that N has a much greater throughput and greater area coverage. I would go with Linksys or even Netgear since most people have success with those routers.

    It should also be noted that N is still practially in the beta stages, and very buggy. I highly recomend you go with G, especially since the Wii is involved. Even if the router can go faster, the Wii can't, so you won't gain anything even on the slim chance that you do manage to get the two to connect.

    That one will work. My uncle has it and I have connected my WII on it. I'm using the reguler WRT54G without the speedbooster.
