Linksys wireless router.. I bought this at first, and I would never buy it again.. It had a very poor signall all over the house, I mean I wouldn't even get 30feet with good signal.. SO I brought it back and got a D-link one..
D-Link, very good signal all over the house, I even put it ontop of a very high place in the living room which gave me a little more coverage, only problem I have is when my laptop goes out of coverage, the Linksys router that's connected to it will lock-up and I have to reset it. This won't be a problem when you have just the D-link router and nothing else connected to the uplink...btw, the D-Link was also very easy to setup..
Here's some pics:
(sorry for lack of quality, my camera sucks)
This b***h is way up high...
Can't believe I climbed all the way up here.. (chair didnt make it so I had to pull myself up
Here's a pic of the card (for laptop, du'h)
This is the signal I get when I'm about 4 walls away at about 30ft I would say...
My other network side where all the wired pc's are connected..
That's it.. Also, the speeds arent like the wired ones, they only get upto 10mb/s but this is more then enough for playing mp'3 over network and even dvd movies have worked...
