Good wireless router.

by sam sanjose on 10/24/2008

I just return 2 weeks old Airlink 108G router back to Fr*s Electronic and find this Linksys WRT300N Refurbit only 49.**. so I bought it and wow works like a charm, no problem, setup just like other brand 192.168.1.1 admin then you are in control. I owned Trenet TEW 432 B/G, 2WIRE 1800HP B/G, Airlink 430W, Linksys befw11s4. But this is the best, range far bester, not too hot like Trendnet or Airlink and hope last longer than 2WIRE. Read More

Very poor wireless output signal.

by Frank on 3/13/2009

My wireless PC is 20 feet away and can barely get a signal. I have been in contact with Linksys using there Chat sessions three times and nothing can make it work any better. My last router was a cheap trendnet 802.11g and it's signal blew this one away using the same PC. I don't know if they are all this bad but the one I got does not work, defective product. Hope this helps someone. Read More

Product Overview

The Wireless-N Broadband Router is really three devices in one box. First, there's the Wireless Access Point, which lets you connect to the network without wires. There's also a built-in 4-port full-duplex 10/100 Switch to connect your wired-Ethernet devices together. Finally, the Router function ties it all together and lets your whole network share a high-speed cable or DSL Internet connection.

The Access Point built into the Router uses the very latest wireless networking technology, Wireless-N (draft 802.11n). By overlaying the signals of multiple radios, Wireless-N's "Multiple In, Multiple Out" (MIMO) technology multiplies the effective data rate. Unlike ordinary wireless networking technologies that are confused by signal reflections, MIMO actually uses these reflections to increase the range and reduce "dead spots" in the wireless coverage area. The robust signal travels farther, maintaining wireless connections up to 4 times farther than standard Wireless-G.

With Wireless-N, the farther away you are, the more speed advantage you get. It works great with standard Wireless-G and -B equipment, but when both ends of the wireless link are Wireless-N, the router can increase the throughput even more by using twice as much radio band, yielding speeds up to 12 times as fast as standard Wireless-G. But unlike other speed-enhanced technologies, Wireless-N can dynamically enable this double-speed mode for Wireless-N devices, while still connecting to other wireless devices at their respective fastest speeds. In congested areas, the "good neighbor" mode ensures that the Router checks for other wireless devices in the area before gobbling up the radio band.

To help protect your data and privacy, the Router can encode all wireless transmissions with industrial-strength 256-bit encryption. It can serve as your network's DHCP Server, has a powerful SPI firewall to protect your PCs against intruders and most known Internet attacks, and supports VPN pass-through. Configuration is a snap with the web browser-based configuration utility.

The incredible speed of Wireless-N makes it ideal for media-centric applications like streaming video, gaming, and Voice over IP telephony, and gives you plenty of headroom to run multiple media-intense data streams through the network at the same time, with no degradation in performance. With the Linksys Wireless-N Broadband Router at the center of your home or office network, you can share a high-speed Internet connection, files, printers, and multi-player games, and run media-intensive applications at faster than 10/100 wired network speeds, without the hassle of stringing wires!
