Link: Linksys WRT54GX Wireless-G Broadband Router with SRX
Is it time to upgrade your home or office wireless network? If you are like the FutureLawyer, you had to install multiple access points or WiFi extenders to get the signal throughout your home or office. 802.11G Routers with an alleged range of 100 feet only go 30 feet through walls and related obstructions at my home and office. The new N standard routers use MIMO technology to extend that range and speed ten fold. MIMO stands for Multiple In Multiple Out, and it uses several antennas. These new routers are more expensive (think $122 street), or about what G routers cost when they first came out a couple of years ago. However, you shouldn't need an extender or extra access point in the house, and early adopters are saying that you don't need to update the wifi cards in your other computers to gain speed and distance. Of course, a new Pre-N card in your notebook will help, but is not necessary. I am a fan of the LinkSys products, both for reliability and ease of use, and I will be trying one of these "Pre-N" routers in the near future. I will let you know what I think when I actually install one.
