Or... you can lock it to N and people on B and G cant connect to it. But if they have a N , they will be able to connect to it and get the full power of N.

I was talking to my Cisco Instructor about that when they started to produce the N routers.
Yes dw I know if you set a particular standard you are limited by that particular standards abilities.

No, thats not what i saying... If you dont set a standard you can POSSIBLY be stuck with a crappier standard if someone from G or B decides to connect. It will change from N to the lowest one..... without you knowing it...

So... you wana play someone across the state... well, your not getting your 54/11meg that g or b offer... your are getting whatever the weakest link to the server is... your wireless is the least of your worries then...

N is nice because of the range... 70Meters INDORS... 300Meters outside..
Well the wireless range is the reason I would buy that router. My friends have the same Wireless N Gigabit router that I have and the Linksys Gaming router and we brought it over here to test it. I can't get more than 2 bars outside my house and about 5 bars when I'm upstairs and about 4 bars when I'm downstairs. His router gave me 5 bars throughout my entire house and 3 bars outside. That's the basis for my statement.

That was done using 4 different laptops of different sizes using Wireless N and G. One 17, one 15.4, one 13, and another 21. So uhm yeah. It seemed to worked fine.

Yes it would be compatible with PS3 and Wii as it will support B/G standards.

Routers support multiple standards simultaneously. If someone is on a 802.11g and 802.11n, then your router support both 802.11g and 802.11n simultaneously.

Also, some of the gaming routers have better processors. Just because a router supports a standard, it does not mean all routers perform the same. Oh, 802.11n is NOT a stardard since it hasn't been ratified yet.

Here are some wireless benchmarks: http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/compo...ess/Itemid,200

Indeed N is still in ''Draft'' stages. Its cheeky how some manufacturers will pretty much advertise it as a full blown standard. Netgear like to do that.

Currently i have a D-Link DIR-655 draft N wireless router. And have had great experiences with it. Have had it over 6 months and haven't had any problems with it. Setup was very easy.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...15&Tpk=dir-655

and the wireless adapter i have is the D-link DWA-552. I get great reception and haven't had any disconnects from my router.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833127219


My router is on the third floor with my main PC. The PC that I have on wireless gets 5 bars of signal through 2 floors (pc is on the first floor) and i pull down 130mbs. I have brought my laptop outside and to my neighbors house 2 doors down and get 2 bars of signal pulling down at 54mbs.

At the moment there is only one wireless router I'd recommend.

Linksys WRT54GL

Flash it with the DD-WRT firmware and you're set.

Forget anyone saying to get a wireless N router. (No offense to anyone that did)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833124190

Will only cost you 51.99 after MIR. Ask anyone that has one of these bad boys and they will recommend it over any other router as well.

EDIT: DD-WRT also lets you overclock it

My D-Link DGL-4300 outperforms the WRT54GL in simulanteous connections and total throughput (needed for torrents).

DGL-4300 = 132Mbps, 180 connections
WRT54GL = 36Mbps, 64 connections

I had a DD-WRT WRT54GS (ver 6) and my new router performs better.
