    I have always had my Linksys WRT54G router with 3 other computers with the Linksys USB adapters for all of my family and I can be on our own home network. I want to upgrade our hardware to the "802.11 N" and so I have been spending time looking on Linksys's website and found the following routers that are available to me from Linksys:

    1) WRT150N
    2) WRT160N
    3) WRT300N

    Out of those 3 models of Linksys routers... which one would be the best one for speed and reliability on a wireless home network? If it helps, all the computers will be upstairs and the router will be in the middle room where 2 rooms are to the left of this room where the router will be and 1 room to the right of the room where the router will be.

    If there is a better brand than Linksys and if you know the model of the router, it would help me in trying to get the best bang for my buck on trying to upgrade to the new wireless N technology.

    Thank you so much!

    -Robert

    Robert,

    Here are some brief summaries.

    I'm going to wait for the final Wireless-N standard. Can't be far away. Even so, my Linksys G system is working so well I'd need to be convinced that I'd see a difference with N. Advertising dialogue can't be trusted. Remember the GS system. It was slower than G because of its instability.
