"Poor range"1.0 starson by westlyw
Pros: Easy setup
Cons: False advertising
Summary: Although I'm new to wirless I'm not impressed with this at all and know false advertising when I see it. I bought the wpc300n card to go with it. This is my second wrt160n router. The first did all kinds of weird things like reset itself to the year 1970 and so on. I spent 3 sessions with linksys in online chat because I couldn't find a phone #. I liked how they would ask you if you tried something and then immediately leave chat. I had already tried most of everything they came up with anyway. And what they did suggest didn't work either. Seemed hokey pokey at best. Thru put is good at close range of 30 feet. It was extremely simple to set up. Setting the router in front of a window and walking in a straight line outside 75 feet I lose signal. The funny thing is I lose the N signal long before I lose the G signal. The N signal only travels about 30 feet or so. 4X Range RIGHT.
Appears to function well as a G router. But doesn't give the range that I was looking for so I have to rate it negatively.
