The range boosting hack makes me laugh. It's just a geek pissing contest. If the computer isn't range boosted also you'll only get the enhanced speed one way, from the router to the computer. It won't improve computer to computer or computer to router transfer as the computers are only able to transmit at stock strength. If the computer is too far away, it may be able to pick up but may not be strong enough to adequately transfer back. Now if you had another boosted linksys acting as an access point to the computer it would help.<br><br>------> JD's Trivia game<br><br>------> MCF-MM Trivia game

It's not "range boosting", you're simply increasing the signal to noise ratio between the router and client within the router's range. The router typically has a higher gain receiving antenna than the client.<br><br><br><br>Hey I'm an F'n Jerk!®

I'm running a dLink WBR-2310. I've had to fine tune the network settings, but it has been remarkably stable (the wireless side) since I tweaked the settings. My wife's Mini is connected wirelessly (802.11g) from about 40 feet away with multiple walls between. My G4 FrankenMac is hard wired and my father-in-law's Powerbook is also hard wired. It's probably not the best router around, but it is working well for me.<br><br><br>
