Most people I talk to or deal with love wireless. I love wireless too. I however understand that wireless is slow. Keep in mind that I am currently only using wireless G. Being a paranoid nerd I don’t really like to be bleeding edge. Wireless N is still kinda new. I use wireless for web surfing and other simple tasks on my laptop. If I have a printer I would set it up hardwired. Who in the hell would setup a printer or god forbid a NAS box or storage system on wireless. I also don’t ever by smaller any name hardware manufacturers. I never use anything other than Cisco and Linksys.
I find that D-link is very moody. I have had routers that will work then stop work. I also replace them fast. I understand that if a $60 starts giving me problems you should replace. I keep all my services on wired connections. I find that gigabit LANS slay wireless connections time and time again. If you want speed and reliability stick with a cable.
