Five far-reaching routers
March 22, 2006
If you're lucky enough to have a palatial abode, you'll need a router that can cast a far-reaching network so that you can be connected in the most remote corners of your home. Sure, you could add an access point to your network, but the latest MIMO routers also give you great throughput at a distance. The big winners in this roundup are the Belkin Pre-N and Netgear WPN824 RangeMax routers, which clocked a speedy 36.4Mbps at 200 feet, faster than what some standard 802.11b/g routers can dish at a mere 10 feet.
