If I stay with 802.11g I'm going to simply get the wrt54gl as it seems to be very popular, reliable and has good firmware support.

However if I can grab a good 802.11N version 2.0 router would it not be a good choice? I just don't understand it all yet. Will my laptop gain anything from going with an N router if its internal card is only a G? I know I can purchase an N card in the future but that is not in the current budget. I would just hate to miss the boat on the N technology. My budget is $100 Cad though so that might eliminate the N routers. Thoughts and opinions?
N > G ; But N is not final yet so you take a gamble with any hardware right now that is N as it may not be compatible with final N products.

Stick with G as most people don't need more than that.
