Almost all wireless routers in the market today support broadband – though the best performing ones typically follow the latest wireless technology standards.

Router technology is being improvised all the time, and while the wireless 802.11b an earlier version is still in use, its upgrade, 802.11g, is by far better in terms of connection speed, file sharing, and is also able to handle more clients than the former. This router is a good balance between performance and price, falling midway between the 802.11b and 802.11n.

The best wireless router for broadband is a further upgrade to the 802.11g; the 802.11n, which offers even better performance, more features though at much higher price points.
