Wireless network range questions.

Do the wireless routers that claim to give a better range require identicle PCMCIA / PCI cards to get this added range to work, or not?
I know that that to get the 108 Mbps, they rquire the same turbo cards, but is it same for the MIMO products or others that increase the range? Or does having the router alone increase the range? Thanks.

I'm not sure but I assume the signal range is determined by the rounter antenna and the positioning of the unit. Obstacles such as walls/doors etc also affect the signal/range of the device.

The speed however is determined by the cards/adaptors. to get 108Mbps, you will need all the cards to be of the same speed.

I have a netgear 108mbps router, but my laptop is centrino and only works at 54mbps, so I'me getting that speed.
