    I highly suggest finding a router that you can load DD-WRT on it. DD-WRT is way more stable, more customization, and it's totally free.

    Connor was looking for a new router too. I found my old WRT54g but it seems to be fried. Still that's one of the best routers ever made for home use IMO.

    Oh I can help you spend cash.

    Best thing to do is see the room you are working with first.. House or apt?

    Bilsteins front and rear, front set to 1'' and rear are 9'' 5125's, OMD springs in the rear, CSJumper LED's inside, hard wired inverter.
    We have a Sony surround sound, 5 speakers and one sub.
    It works good, you can plug a iPhone into it, and it plays DVD, best part is it was ~ 200 (I think) from Costco.

    I love Costco. Looking to keep on the cheap maybe couple hundo or less. Biggest thing I know tho is you get what you pay for. So obviously I want something half decent. I haven't a clue when it comes to home sound. Only vehicle....

    Depending on how loud you want to get you might want to look into sound bars. Simulated surround isn't bad, they are clean, cost effective, and won't piss off your neighbors.

    A friend in VA has a sound bar, it's a Sony, and it got fairly loud, we watched sky fall on their tv with the bar and it sounded decent to me.

    We just picked up an entire home theater set up for my parents over the weekend for less than 1400. Samsung 60" plasma 1080p. Toshiba sound bar with sub for 180 on sale. Sony bluray. And a couple HDMI cables. Hooked it all up and was pretty impressed with sound bar. Has an Aux input as well for your ipod or whatever and Bluetooth. Was streaming music from my phone and it sounded great. Id recommend a sound bar. Im thinking of picking up one for myself after hearing theirs. Right now I have a Sony 5.1 surround in my apt.. been pleased with it. Think I got it for less than 300 a couple years ago.
