Before with SB6120 + TEW-633GR:



After with SB6121 + RT-N66U:



Tests were about 5 minutes apart, on the same computer, with nothing changed aside from the hardware.

Kind of already am a little bit... wireless range isn't as far as the other one. Excellent router beside that though.

The wireless range on mine is excellent. Maybe a firmware upgrade is required?

Define excellent...

My firmware is up to date. The range is by no means terrible, just not as good as my old router.

Bump for a bit of an update.

Wireless range might not be outstanding but the sig rig is back up and currently using a ASUS wireless USB dongle (USB-N53) for internet until (if) I lay lines out. Computer is on a different level and through several walls/floors from router.



Not bad. thumb.gif

Swap the antennas out from your old router in to your new router and see if wifi improves.
