I have seen wireless routers from as low as USD50 to as high as USD200 if not higher so I would like to know what exactly sets these routers apart, what should one look for when purchasing a wireless router?
Well you answered your own question, you need the highest throughput speed to transfer files.
Looks like this one has the highest throughput out there now:http://www.microcenter.com/single_produ ... id=0341405
TRENDnet's TEW-691GR 450Mbps Wireless N Gigabit Router
Advanced Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) antenna technology with three spatial streams per antenna generates a maximum theoretical wireless throughput of 450Mbps.
Wired data port is actually 2GB which I didn't know consumer grade had come out with.
It's at top of the price range at $195 but if you want speed this looks to be it.
Nope not spending that level of cash.
http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/ is a good place to start.
There are charts that show you the performance of the routers, wired and wireless.
Thanks nice link
So I have found some which suites my needs/wants but I'm not familiar with any of the brands do any of these brands ring a bell to any of you Buffalo, EnGenius, TP-Link or TRENDnet?
