Hi helpful people. I'm asking a question on behalf of my brother who has recently moved home. My brother wishes to go wireless as he has both a desktop and laptop and wishes to know which router would be the best. He has a 2mb connection.
There is nothing wrong with this router, but your brother will not be able to make use of the high-speed element unless he also buys a Pre-N card for his computer. If his laptop has built in wireless, as many do, then this is most unlikely to be anything other than 802.11g which operates at 54MB maximum speed. It wont make use of the Pre-N high speed.
Having said that this Belkin is well rated at giving out a strong signal even with a "normal" connection. Also consider the Belkin Wireless G+.
Just when I thought I had it resolved. My brother has come back to me and said that the Belkin was not suitable as he has his broadband via Cable. Any suggestions? His new home has extremely thick walls too, if this relevant.
