    Hi all, ive used a few netgear wireless routers in the past, never found that their range was that great.

    Can you suggest which dsl router you reckon has the best wireless range? Obviously I dont wanna spend more than bout £90.

    look for a router that spec's "MIMO"

    but then most routers can cover the average house if sited correctly.

    I just got the netgear DG834PN and it has been very good. It comes with MIMO but as i am right next to the router i am using a cable so i have not tested the range.

    I've got the Netgear DG834N (on special at the mo) and I'm getting 68% signal on my laptop in the conservatory which is about 45ft, two brick walls and a wooden floor away from the router.
