To that I would agree.

I wouldn't even go that far. Raw mineral would make a better paper weight too.

Hi everyone I got a new update to my network... The Amped Wireless AP20000G! I love it it's an awesome access point!

I can easily get 5 bars all over my mixed construction house (spanning several decades and some walls have plaster and I also have dropped celings with flourescent lights like you see in offices) I can walk outside and about 150 feet away can stream youtube vids with not much problems.

Average RSSI Values: (using the Amped Wireless Analytics tool for Android)
Amped Wireless AP20000G: 30-50ft avg. @ -22 to -32dBm/50-75ft avg. @ -47dBm/ 170ft @ -72dBm

while my netgear wgr614 was -75dBm at around 30ft away and -82dBm to -92dBm on the back porch and was only 1 or 2 bars tops. I get 4-5 bars on the back porch with the amped wireless access point. I have a huge thick metal door and my access point is upstairs on the opposite end of the house and I have a thick staircase.

on the laptop I get 5 bars all over the house as well as the back porch. it's got a built in atheros adapter.

I use the SMC router/modem and a Netgear N300 WNR3500L off 1 port of the SMC and a Netgear 8 port switch upstairs off another port. My whole wired network is gigabit speed.

After years of crappy experiences with dozens of routers from Linksys, my father continued to buy 6 more Linksys routers that all crapped out within a 3 month period and phone support delivered him lie after lie after lie. Eventually I convinced him to let me pick our next router, a Netgear WNDR4000 and in the like 2-3 years we have owned it there hasn't been a single issue or need to restart it like we had to do several times per day with our Linksys routers to get even a remotely usable connection speed for a few hours.
