I own the Gigabit version (DIR-655) and can say its superb, never had a problem and works smoothly. Just keep the firmware updated off their website.

when will .11N become a standard and no longer draft ?

Good spot....

Its more or less a standard now with most of the newest laptops fitted with wireless 'N' adapters as standard

not that cheap...bought this almost 2 years ago for £50, now have the dlink 655 (same but wired is also gigabit)

thx - been reading up a bit more on the detail - it says " By adding a Wireless N notebook or desktop adapter, users can stay connected to their network from virtually anywhere in their home."

i've already been told that if you got a .11g laptop that it will connect, but does this wording above mean it will still be as weak a signal as i currently get because it will effectively only be sending a .11g signal to my laptop as thats all the laptop can receive ?

The difference between g and n is nothing to do with signal, just to do with the speeds and modulation techniques.

I (as a network security engineer) recommend people NOT to use Wireless N devices if they have sensitive data on their machines (which I assume most do).

As it is NOT an official specification (just yet), cross-platform security has not been implemented efficiently, meaning there are a LOT more vulnerabilities and risks when using N over G.

So to re-issue that warning, N is less secure than G. Now if you live in a rural area or something and don't have much secure data but want speed for something like filesharing/gaming then go for it. but if you're going to be doing banking, company work etc etc, then to be honest why risk it when G will give you what you need

I have O2 broadband and have problem with signal on 1st floor. Would this help? Would I use this instead of the O2 router?

You would replace the router part of the setup, but would still need an ADSL modem.

There are many modem/routers out there which would offer a more compact replacement from a "free on contract" one such as 02 or Orange.
