Some Questions About Wireless Routers

I want to setup a home network.

I am thinking of getting a Linksys Wireless Router, however, I have heard that a lot of connections such as on bit torrent or other P2P programs eventually kill the router.

Second, I read that an incoming call on a 2.4 Ghz phone interferes with the router since that is the same frequency as 802.11b.  Do these claims hold true for all routers?

Hi abstractionz,

>>I have heard that a lot of connections such as on bit torrent or other P2P programs eventually kill the router.
May I ask where you heard about that? A router is made for multiple connections to the internet... it'll feel fairly happy with this.

>>I read that an incoming call on a 2.4 Ghz phone interferes with the router since that is the same frequency as 802.11b.  Do these claims hold true for all routers?
Some may slow down the connection a bit, but don't expect mayor problems from this. The protocol is pretty fail proof and it should just keep working.

Greetings,

I am thinking about buying this router:

and it's mentioned in the 1st customer review.

abstractionz,
That first customer also said "check dslreports or sveasoft forums for more info..."
So I did, and also Linksys pages... the lastest firmware will prevent the lockup, it's in no-way close to "kill the router"
