This maybe has the potential to be used in like hotels, but they're marketing it as a home network router which is just way over the top.
There is no such thing as a spherical direction...in a spherical coordinate system the coordinates use two angles from the axes and the length r (in the radial direction.)

Yea I've never heard that either.....the WRT54G can be modded many ways, but I've never seen distances like that advertised.

300m is probably open air range in the middle of a desert. Real world range WILL be less due to EMI, walls, and other competing signals.

Yeah... The linksys router WRT54G is rated for 300m. I get 15-25% and im about... 25-30 feet away from the router....

at 40 feet it dies off....

Did you follow the link?
Benefits and Features, and a Feature Comparison between other products. Obviously they glorify their own product, but it does have features that other more basic routers lack.

The hardware firewall and Antivirus are very different from the software security suite.

Or you could just setup a linux box as a dhcp/radius wireless server, with a hidden ssid and domain only access.

Exactly. It'll be 100m at MOST in a brand new home. Placing it somewhere like in the office where I work that still has (tasty) lead paint and massive steel support beams, and you'll be lucky to get ten meters.

Plus, a decently secured network is far less likely to get abused compared to the fifteen or so open networks that will overlap you.
