I bought Linksys Wireless N.  I returned it.  It was lousy.

I bought NetGear Wireless N (150 dollars at compusa minus 20 dollar rebate).

NetGear IS ALOT better.
However, there are still problems.

It disconnected me from work unexpectedly.
The signal became low unexpectedly.

What do you recommend is the speediest solution that does not sacrifice quality?

Has anybody had good experience with a Wireless N router (as this is the speediest), and if so, which brand and model?

Hi kamleshmistry,

802.11N is not a ratified standard. Any equipment sold as N is actually pre-N and may not work with the official N kit once the standard has been ratified. Any equipment sold as N now is early bleeding edge technology and may not be fully stable.

Also, the speed will be as quick as the slowest link in the chain, ie. your DSL.cable connection.

Unless you have a pressing need to transfer data between local hosts at 200-540Mbit/s, stick with ratified standards, ie. 802.11a/b/g as they work now.

Good Luck,
