    I am planning to buy a wireless gateway this Saturday from Lamington Road, Mumbai. Please recommend me some nice models and approx price for them.

    Am also looking for a good keyboard with a hell lots of multimedia keys. Something like Logitech G15 but more pocket friendly.

    Might also buy a Graphics card. I am having a Asus P5B deluxe wifi ap mobo and have a nVidia 7300 GS graphics card. Knowing that graphics card to leverage power of DX11 would be coming in soon, and don't really need a graphic card, but still if something (DX10 leveraging) is cheap, I might purcase it.

    pocket friendly keyboard and like G15? can you please elaborate?

    if you want DX11 cards, you may need to wait few more months. Till then you can get a 9600GT or HD4670 for 4.5k if you are not serious about gaming.

    by wireless gateway, do you mean a wireless router?

    I know G15 is nowhere pocket friendly. With G15 having 36 programmable keys an a LCD and costing 5K, I won't mind a keyboard with 15 programmable keys for 1K.

    Anyways where can I find a G15.

    With wireless gateway, I mean a modem + router.

    ah okay. Check Dlink DIR-655. Am not sure if this one can work as a modem, but is one of the best draft-n routers. This one is one of few routers that doens't drastically slow down the network throughput when you connect b, g and n devices.

    This one's Draft-N router+modem that has damn good network coverage and speeds.

    In linksys there are two gateway's, one for G and one for N.

    WAG54G2 for 802.11b/g
    WAG160N for 802.11n

    Thanks desiibond for getting me started.

    @dissel
    I think it should be between 4-4.5 K

    Have heard that LinkSys wireless routers reboot a lot. Any comments on this.

    nope. nothing like that. if there is any, it will be fixed by firmware updates.

    and yes, both should be around 5k.

    ^^^

    Thanks for Replying, today I bought this month Digit where they quoted the price 10500/- for D-Link DIR-655 at page 77.

    And made minus point - Expensive,slower than expected.

    I am also looking for a router,but my budget is upto 5K and and strech another 500 bucks...So this was not my cup of tea.

    anyways, take a look at Linksys gateways. easy to configure and good bandwidth but only problem is with the range.

    According to digit review, Netgear WNR2000 won the Editor's Pick Award in segment of Router Upto 5000/-.....Price is 4720/-

    According to them Pros:-Blazing Speed,Superb Value, Cons:- looks Boxy

    But I can't found a single review on the net except YouTube, where TigerDiret dude said it has 8 internal antennas but in datasheet 2 though.

    pretty confusing.......Digit also said that N Router stranded will set in September. Is it worth to wait now & go for a router next year ?

    One more que, Is WNR834B superior than WNR2000 ?

    There's nothing wrong with the reviews. The prices mentioned are the MRP (Maximum Retail Price). It's the maximum you'll pay anywhere in the country and it's the price provided to us by the companies themselves.

    Market prices vary from city to city and I don't think it's possible for us to publish market prices of every single town in the country. We keep this in mind and as much as possible, try and talk about it in the review and while giving recommendations.

    oh yeah. MRP. When the govt is shouting that you always question the shopkeeper selling h/w for MRP, why are you guys quoting MRP? Take a look at pricings given in PCWorld magazine. lot lot better.

    I still remember Creative zenvision:W being given price tag as 35k (when it was available for 16k) and hence for high price tag, it was removed out of contention for best buy award.

    coming to reviews, yes. there is nothing wrong. praising Intex and zebronics **** and giving them best buy awards when Altec Lansing and other stuff is there, giving games like Prototype a 5/10, yeah those reviews do deserve a praise!!!!

    ^^^^Wohhh........Team Digit Responding......

    Called one of Netgear Dealer, received quote from them

    NetGear WNR834B 3900/- + 4% vat <--- My pref,as the price diff is low

    Netgear WNR2000 3300/- + 4% vat

    Can't contact D-Link dealer on the phone, but before I buy above one I must get the quote from D-Link.

    Anyhow thanks to desibond.
