Best wireless router?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
What is the best wireless router for speed + distance + huge file size transfers? Because I am getting lots of dead spots in my house with my current wrt54g. My budget is 250 usd for just a new wireless router and maybe a repeater. I dont need a gaming router though..but if its the best one I guess ill use it

If you are going for +$100, then get the D-Link DGL-4300

or the NETGEAR WPN824 RangeMax

I love my dlink router -- http://www.dlink.com/products/?sec=0&pid=6

signal is great, (but i do use a repeater in my house...big house) an alternative for a repeater is to get this antenna for the router -- http://www.dlink.com/products/?sec=0&pid=51

Most routers can upgrade the antennas, look to make sure, but I would just get the router and a repeater would work better. I have two routers and a repeater, and the farthest computer is @450feet away.

Forget everything you just read and buy a Linksys SRX400. Its the baddest, fastest, range producing piece of network hardware out there. Hell, you dont need no dang antenna upgrades or waps or range expanders of any kind. When a customer needs power, this is what I give them.
