I'm not really sure - I had a belkin g before I got the belkin n. We're in a 2 storey house and the coverage was rubbish so I swapped it out for an n. It seemed to solve the coverage problem.
I did notice that there weren't many g routers for sale, most were n, n+ and even an n++. I am not very techie and just went for what I was familiar with and within a price that didn't make my eyes water too much ($229NZD, which is about $190USD).
But it is certainly much faster than the belkin n was - which was an unexpected bonus.
I'm not sure why wifi has to be so hard - there must be lots of people making money out of setting up wifi for those who have no idea what they are doing, and lots of unsecured networks out there as well.
Work for me today
- would rather be at home enjoying the winter sun and reading! Enjoy the rest of your long weekend
