    Dual N wireless router

    Has anyone had any good/bad luck with any of them?

    We are getting a ton of wireless devices, and the range of my G router sucks. I was thinking about one of the linksys/cisco since they have some feature called extended range. Anyone had the e2000?

    EDIT: Nevermind, that one is selectable, i need the e3000.

    Re: Dual N wireless router

    I just bought a Netgear WNDR 3300. Actually 2 days ago. So far so good.
    NETGEAR RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Router WNDR3300 Wireless router - EN, Fast EN, IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11a, IEEE 802.11g, IEEE 802.11n (draft 2.0)

    I don't have any N devices on my network yet, but my old one wouldn't old a solid connection so I upgraded.

    Re: Dual N wireless router

    I have the E2000 and I like it but like you said it's only one at a time. I still have a D-Link Dual Band DIR-825 and it just never gave me the range I needed on the 5mhz band. It sounds like this is pretty common.

    Re: Dual N wireless router

    A quick comment on wireless N. While manufacturers have been producing wireless N products for several years, those products were based on drafted proposals of the new wireless N protocol which is why you see the word "draft" included with several wireless N products. The wireless N protocol was finally ratified in October of 2009 and products using the ratified protocol are slowing beginning to make their way into the market. The Linksys E2000 is one of the first I've seen with the new protocol but with any new technology it's going to take time to iron out all of it's problems. The above mentioned Netgear router uses the draft protocol. I would recommend putting off a wireless N purchase for a few more months still.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.
