    Default Wi Fi router

    I am having You Broadband and was using LINKSYS wireless-G, 2.4 GHz 54 Mbps WRT54G version7 Broadband Router . However due problem with the same like drop in speed and distance covering problem, I want to change the same. Also I am using Android Mobile ONE PLUS TWO, qty 2 Nos. Would you recommend any good router with speed of 300or above, 2.4 to 5.0 GHz and range about 40 to 50 meters (considering Total two walls on first and ground floor),preferably Linksys or Netgear Or D-Link.Shall appreciate your recommendation.
    Thanks

    Linksys Routers are little expensive. Netgear should be your bet. Buy the 300N router which will can work speeds upto 300 mbps (know that your actual internet speed is your real ISP provided speed).

    But the problem will not be solved by another router alone. The speed that you will achieve (on wireless) will depend upon the signal strength. I also have You Broadband at home with 15 mbps plan. Here are my observations:

    • My wireless router (54 mbps) is located at one corner of the flat in one bedrom. I cannot shift the router because the You BB modem is at that corner of the flat.
    • In that bedroom, my PC, mobile, iPad, etc., get full 5 bar signal (naturally). I get 17.5 mbps downstream and 1.5 mbps upstream here (yes, more than the promised 15 mbps)
    • When I move to a room little away, the signal shows 3 or 4 bars. At this time, speedtest.net reports 7~8 mbps down / 0.75 mbps up.
    • When I move to the far off corner of the flat where signal shows just 1 or 2 bars, the speed drops to 3~4 / 0.5 mbps.
    • To correct the problem, I added a wireless repeater. Now the problem is reduced (but not eliminated).


    Please write for more questions.
