Correct it's Super G, but it does make use of MIMO technology.

If you have a older house like mine with thick walls, and dodgy electrics so you can't make use of the mains extenders, then it's a good option for getting deadspots on your network.

I'm with Sky broadband & they threaten to disconnect you if you don't use the router they supply you with. Their router wasn't cutting it, so I conected a Netgear WN802T access point to my router - that was where the wireless N came from. However, I think the benefit seen on my home network has more to do with the MIMO.

If there are folks out there with deadspots and they can pick their own router then this may give them the same sort of benefit.

i got this deal just after xmas and had nothing but trouble with it, i got it to steam files to my 360 on a tversity server but it was rubbish.

it finaly boiled down to the stupid usb dongle, it dropped out at the drop (pardon the pun) of a hat.

i was never able to get 108mbps and netgears software just kept bouncing from channel to channel without locking on even when it could see the network. "u is havin a laf time" at the point of insanity i used a psp 11g dongle from deal extreme and all of a suddun things started to work.

it seemed if if the dongle was locking up itself and the router! even when using up to date firmware and driver.

i still find range is poor got the router set up in a good location not blocked by anything and lucky if i get 20 feet. but will now connect to all my equipment.

my opinion get a propper MIMO "n" router made for the job..

very poor kit always used netgear but i would not recomend this!

a usb dongle, connected to the pc is never gonna work properly, as all adaptors must be kept away from metal objects ( pc case ! )

if u got one, use an extension cable to place the dongle as far away from pc case as poss.
