Hi,

I bought a TP-Link 300Mbps Wireless N USB ADSL2+ Modem Router TD-W8968

http://www.tp-link.in/products/details/?categoryid=219&model=TD-W8968

What will be the range of wifi coverage? Will the modem/router be able to cover 100 meter range with two walls and two doors.

Please reply as soon as possible.

Thanks and Regards,
Sriram.K

That's really not a question we can answer -- wireless coverage is VERY dependent on the specific topology.    100 meters is a fairly long distance, but a good dual-band N router should be able to achieve that distance with no problem as long as it's unrestricted line-of-sight (i.e. outdoors).      Whether it can do so through two walls and two doors is impossible to say with certainty -- you simply need to try it.   You would NOT generally be able to achieve 100m range indoors ... but if this is between two buildings and there are no other obstacles except the doors/walls, it MAY work.   You may, however, find that even if it works, the signal level is fairly low ... so your wireless speed may be a bit disappointing.

garycase answered you perfectly in my opinion.    FYI, to assist with that range, these work very well at extending it,
