Hi, I am looking to purchase a wireless-n router for my home.  I don't know if it is worth it to spend the money and buy a Simultaneous Dual-Band Wireless-N Router or just get a Regular Wireless-N Router.  I have movies, music, etc. on my desktop upstairs that would be streamed downstairs to my Home Theater.  Also PS3 and Wii are thrown into this network.  

Do I purchase Dual Band or Single?  Would the streaming of movies/music even lag on an N network?  The models i am looking at are Linksys (WRT400N) and (WRT160N).

Thank you,
Mike

i recommend the wrt160n ( i have it too, it is great. ). you do not really need a dual-band router unless you plan to have two simultaneous wireless networks.
