Netgear RangeMax

post #1 of 2

Hi guys, I'm gonna be moving into a small studio apartment soon and was wondering which of these Wireless-N routers I should get for my laptop.

#2 (RangeMax)

It seems the big difference between the two is that the RangeMax supports wired gigabit ethernet connection while the cheaper one does not. I was wondering if this will make a difference in my Samsung laptop, as I'm not sure if it supports Gigabit or not: http://www.samsung.com/us/computer/laptops/NP-QX410-J01US-features

I will be using a wired connection on my laptop, but I plan to do wireless activity as well with my phone and iPad.

Your laptop is Gigabit, but whether that matters or not depends on what you do. If all you're doing is surfing the internet, Gigabit doesn't really matter because your internet speed isn't anywhere near Gigabit.

However, if say you wanted to transfer files between computers, Gigabit will be beneficial.

I have the WNR3500L and it's a good router, hasn't crashed since I got it 6 months ago. Plus you can use DD-WRT on it if you wish. I would get Gigabit, better to have it than not in my opinion in case you do want to utilize later.
