Due to the limited range of the wifi-g standard I plan to switch my home network to wifi-n. As I've always had problems with my modems/routers - they like to hang up when too many machines connect (>5) or bandwith intense applications (Bittorrent) are running - I started playing with the thought of setting up an old laptop as a wifi-n router (with adsl-modem).

I've found some howto's and tutorials on the whole network configuration. So I wanted to ask whether someone here at the forums may have done a similar project and has any experience or tips specifically on compatible hardware that I could use.
Any inputs and thoughts are welcome.
