Wireless-N Broadband Router

Linksys WRT300N wireless router:
The official marketing text of Linksys WRT300N wireless router as supplied by the manufacturer
The Wireless-N Broadband Router is really three devices in one box. First, there's the Wireless Access Point, which lets you connect to the network without wires. There's also a built-in 4-port full-duplex 10/100 Switch to connect your wired-Ethernet devices together. Finally, the Router function ties it all together and lets your whole network share a high-speed cable or DSL Internet connection.
The Access Point built into the Router uses the very latest wireless networking technology, Wireless-N (draft 802.11n). By overlaying the signals of multiple radios, Wireless-N's "Multiple In, Multiple Out" (MIMO) technology multiplies the effective data rate. Unlike ordinary wireless networking technologies that are confused by signal reflections, MIMO actually uses these reflections to increase the range and reduce "dead spots" in the wireless coverage area. The robust signal travels farther, maintaining wireless connections up to 4 times farther than standard Wireless-G.

With Wireless-N, the farther away you are, the more speed advantage you get. It works great with standard Wireless-G and -B equipment, but when both ends of the wireless link are Wireless-N, the router can increase the throughput even more by using twice as much radio band, yielding speeds up to 12 times as fast as standard Wireless-G. But unlike other speed-enhanced technologies, Wireless-N can dynamically enable this double-speed mode for Wireless-N devices, while still connecting to other wireless devices at their respective fastest speeds. In congested areas, the "good neighbor" mode ensures that the Router checks for other wireless devices in the area before gobbling up the radio band.

To help protect your data and privacy, the Router can encode all wireless transmissions with industrial-strength WPA2 encryption. It can serve as your network's DHCP Server, has a powerful SPI firewall to protect your PCs against intruders and most known Internet attacks, and supports VPN pass-through. Configuration is a snap with the web browser-based configuration utility.

The incredible speed of Wireless-N makes it ideal for media-centric applications like streaming video, gaming, and Voice over IP telephony, and gives you plenty of headroom to run multiple media-intense data streams through the network at the same time, with no degradation in performance. With the Linksys Wireless-N Broadband Router at the center of your home or office network, you can share a high-speed Internet connection, files, printers, and multi-player games, and run media-intensive applications at faster than 10/100 wired network speeds, without the hassle of stringing wires!

The Linksys WRT300N router is a Mimo device with a difference – instead of three identical antennae, it has two plus a large paddle-shaped antenna between them, which should give you hours of twiddling fun. This draft-N router features the usual fo...
Bottom line One of the better and relatively inexpensive draft-N routers on the market, but it still falls short of the draft-N speed claims. Roger Gann Lowest online price: ££39.99...
Throughput is great but in our tests the WiFi range was not what we expected from the N standard. Great for apartments or smaller homes that are switching across to a full N-network.
Good Quite a reasonably priced router, that looks like a Dalek (cool). Performance is realistic with serious maximum throughput figures. Setup is easy thanks to well laid-out instructions, which include easy-to-follow indispensable security features.
Bad Really didn?t deliver up to expectation in a mixed-mode environment with G and B equipment and surprisingly the long range tests, which is supposed to be a strength of the 802.11n spec were less than impressive.

Like the Netgear RangeMax router, the Wireless-N router from LinkSys has a handy slimline design that lets you stand it on its side so that it doesn’t take up too much space. We also liked the fact that it showed up on our Mac’s Airport menu t...
Good Compact design, no Ethernet cable required...
Bad Confusing set-up, and poor support...
Bottom line The Wireless-N was marred by its lack of decent software or manual for Mac users. The installation software on the CD only works on PCs, so Mac users are left to wing it on their own. You can connect to the router’s built-in web page easily enough...
The Linksys Wireless N Broadband Router's setup wizard uses diagrams to guide you through the setup process, and the instructions are very clear. However, even though the router was plugged into our test PC with an Ethernet cable, the setup wizard couldn...
Theres no missing the three antennae that sit on top of the Linksys WRT300N router. Two are conventional sticks, while the middle one looks like it was stolen from the head of Dr Whos sidekick, K9. The antennae are fully adjustable, so you can lay th...

high speed 802.11n wireless router: The Wireless-N standard, properly known as IEEE 802.11n, has been in draft mode for over three years but is due for final approval in April. As such, the spate of Wireless-N devices that networking companies have...
At long last, news of the first products based on Draft N of the not-yet-approved 802.11n specification are starting to trickle out. Despite numerous announcements, actual hardware has been scarce; first to the party is Linksyss WRT300N, a Wi-Fi rout...
