Wireless Router with good range


    I have just signed up to tiscali and the free wireless router they gave me has an appalling signal range. I only have 1 BT Socket which is at the far end of the house so I need a wireless router with a really good range - at least 12 metres, does anyone have any ideas?



    Omni-Directional 7dBi Antenna with Reverse SMA Connection

    Boosts the range of an existing Wireless Device that has a removable SMA Antenna. Compatible with 802.11b (11Mbps) and 802.11g (54/108/125). Reverse SMA is the most common standard for removable antennas for wireless routers and pci cards. Found on most D-link, Netgear, Belkin, Linksys and many other makes. If the antenna can be removed on your wifi device, you can replace it with this antenna to get an improved signal.

    A email to the company will confirm its suitability with your equipment

    they trade on ebay just use "Omni-Directional 7dBi Antenna" as your search

    I had a 3com previously but it was a nightmare to setup with aol and then died. The tiscali wireless router I have now is completely useless so although i need something new, i'm not sure 3com is the way forward for me given my past experience.

    Does anyone know which wireless router has the best range (within a reasonable price of course)?…tml

    Networking over power circuits seems to be taking off now.


    You cant go far wrong with a LinkSys

    Nor indeed Belkin or DLink.

    Ive just installed ]this one and it works great. My office is on the middle floor of a 5 level house and I can get great access from basement to the top bedroom.

    Be good, Dio :thumbsup:

    I and 4 friends/family use Netgear DG834G .
    Review on 'Thinkbroadband' is good for range .
    We have had no probs and it's been around for a while.

    Thanks very much,

    Gonna go for one of the last two, appreciate the help!


    I have an "introduce a friend" option for this....


    and this....


    from their shop for about eight quid for both including P&P.

    Its not a router as such - it would need to be connected with a network cable to your router (supplied) - or you could just use the antenna directly with your router.

    Its an RP-SMA connectorm and mine has given me a signal to a room two away on a higher floor with a packed solid store room between.

    The actual FON idea is quite good too of you signed up it gives you free wifi access while away from home - there is a map on the site to find locations.
