Hello, I'm looking for advice on 2 pieces of hardware, the first one is a high speed router so content from movies, music to simple images can be view on other devices such as tablets, pc and tv with network functionality.

From what I read online I understand the router has to be of at least 1GB of bandwidth, now I'm seeking advice for the brand name and model.

The other piece of hardware is where that material will be store, an external hard drive to plug directly into the router (not to the computer, so it doesn't has to be 'on' to use on say.. the tablets). Here, I'm looking also from brands and models.

The pc to configure these devices has Open Suse Linux 11.3 as main OS but it also has a Windows XP partition (games) if needed.

Hope to get some advice on brand names and models to set this little home network.

Thank you.

Hi,

I use a Cisco link sys wi-fi router and it is working like a charm from the past 4 years. It is easy to install and the cust care people will always support you 24/7.

Ya, a 1MB connection will be sufficient. I brought it for $30 four years ago and you can go for it from Amazon.

My advice is to wait for few days and buy it in a thanksgiving deal.

For routers with storage, please go for the following link
