The Ultra RangePlus 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.

With Wireless-N, the farther away you are, the more speed advantage you get. But unlike other speed-enhanced technologies, Wireless-N can dynamically enable a 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 256-bit 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 incredible speeds, without the hassle of stringing wires!

Thanks!

The router is cable (no ADSL) before someone asks

Can put DD-WRT on this - but it's a specific build otherwise it don't work.

Signal is poor - but once you add some external antennas (around £5-£10 materials cost from ebay), signal improves vastly.

Also I bought this at £15 delivered from broadbandbuyer about 6 months ago. Decent router if willing to solder external antennas - otherwise it's expensive at £25. Better stuff with antennas out there.

Why are cable routers so cheap? Dam I need a N300 of some sort

I am gonna pick one up soon as I have the virgin super hub and its a bag of S&%$ seriously so I am going to turn off the wireless on it and put it through one of them

You CAN use a cable router with your existing ADSL connection. IF you are able to turn your existing router into a bridge. Im on O2 and I have one of these, my O2 box acts simply as a modem.
Google if your best bet.

Yeh signal on this is poor, got one sitting in the house and bought a belkin one instead....
Might have to do what Rash suggests above with the external antennas... Do you have a link for it? Think I might have an old one that died on me so could use the antennas from there....
I paid £20 posted a few months back and think it was expensive then for the performance....
Would avoid this really.

Excellent signal now - get full bars in my attic and all around house. Definitely worth to do the mod - which is why I bought it cheap because the I was gonna do the mod anyway. So less than £25 in all, excellent deal.

Also turning your ADSL modem into a bridge is worth it, that way you whether you are with cable or ADSL does not matter, you only have one router fully setup.
