I have a wireless router, it works fine, sure, i get random disconnections sometimes, but only when i'm playing games for some reason.

Wireless isnt good for gaming, go wired and just have it all hooked up through the walls

Yeah, wireless routers cause lag for gaming most of the time. Depending on the distance between components, wires should be the best option, and the cheapest too.

I don't have the option to be wired. Obviously, go for a wired connection if you have the ability.

Wired, I've always had problems with our wireless router - disconnections every 5 seconds. So i swapped back to wireless.

Well make sure that if you do get a wireless router that the router is on a different transmission frequency then let's say your cordless telephone. I have a friend who has a wireless router, and everytime the cordless phone is picked up, the entire wireless network goes down. Also anything that transmits anything on that frequency such as a communication radio (walkie-talkie) will also interfere with the router. However, I find wireless handy.. I am on my dad's laptop right now, and I can travel anywhere in the house with it. Also.. watch out for plaster walls in houses. Plaster tends to absorb the signal which will make the signal much much more limited when you start going in different rooms/floors. I lucked out cause my hub is in the basement, and I can go all the way to the attic still receiving signal (low signal, but signal nevertheless)

I would recommend a normal wired router, I had a wireless router and had lag and the regular poor reception.
