But in order to take advantage of Wireless-N, you're going to need an 802.11n router. Luckily, you can score a Wi-Fi N router from Apple, D-Link, or Linksys for $100 or less.

The following Wi-Fi N routers have all been reviewed by PCMag's talented networking analyst, Mario Morejan. PCMag uses a rating scale of 1 (poor) to 5 (excellent) and judges things like features, performance, and durability.
