Anyone know of a really good router I can buy?

I have one set up on one side of the house (an oldschool Belkin) and it won't reach my wireless laptop, or the Xbox 360's wireless adapter, both of which are on the complete opposite side of the house.

I'm guessing I need to upgrade my router to one that has a farther reach.

Any ideas?

Stick with linksys. The one posted is probably your best bet:

  • Pros of 802.11n - fastest maximum speed and best signal range; more resistant to signal interference from outside sources
  • Cons of 802.11n - standard is not yet finalized; costs more than 802.11g; the use of multiple signals may greatly interfere with nearby 802.11b/g based networks.

Thanks a lot to both you guys. I'll def. look into the one posted.

I heard there is a way you can upgrade your routers signal with a "router range extender" some type of little gadget that hooks up to your router and is supposed to boost the signal strength.

I'm not sure if that's cheaper than buying a whole new router or what, I'll have to look into it.

Thanks again :cheers:.
