What's my best option in this price range? I use it for streaming movies over a wireless network and gaming. Thanks for any input, and I prefer to use Newegg.

I was using a PC and Untangle, but then I got a cheap Trend Net router for a wireless N access point and my old WRT54G had one of the antennas broke off. I wasn't expecting much...the thing ended up being so good I dropped the whole Untangle business. I don't really need it anymore anyway. Old habits are hard to get over though.

So if you see the cheap price on the Trend Net routers...don't be too scared to try one.

ASUS RT-N16U or the Netgear WNR 3500L.
I have a equivalent of the E2000 (WRT400N) and owned it and it had overheating issues.

I have my WRT400N on top of a Snuggle box for Air Flow
Had my E2000 on a riser since I generated soo much heat.

Here are some problems with the E3000 issues.

I will be streaming from the internet (netflix) and also over my home network. I have a WD tv live hub that I use to stream media from my desktop. That e3000 looks nice.
