  • Widest Coverage Area

    Hi there experts,

    My client is looking forward to replace his old wireless router. He asked me to find him one with huge radius coverage so he can surf comfortably in his big house.
    I've made some research but got confused because opinions contradict each others.
    so far my choices are:

    D-link Dir-855
    Belkin N1 vision
    Netgear RangeMax WNR3700

    So which one provide best coverage arena or you might want to suggest another choice? The budget is 200-400$

    Regards

    Can you please define "huge" in this instance -- are we talking kilometers?
    Also what is the construction of the house as that plays a part.
    You may find multiple small WAPs connected by ethernet offers a better solution

      Just go for a router that supports Wireless N. Most routers can be configured for optimal throughput or range, besides are other factors that can interfere with the wi-fi signal. Wall/partition size and substance, other signals etc.
      What distance are we talking about?
      Another option to consider is probably a DIY antena or a Cantena, or a signal repeater.

        TP-Link have some Extended Range units. http://www.tp-link.com/products/index.asp Many of their devices have the easy to use Netgear GUI.

          Of course he could always get his butler to follow him with a WAP on a long ethernet cable
