I've bought linksys for years but they seem to have problems on DHCP connections (not offering DHCP but when the router is connected to a DHCP source such as cable modem) - often requiring a reset. I tried netgear but the range was wretched. I want to upgrade to an n router but I want something that has good speed when connected to a DHCP source that does natting but with great range. I haven't really tested the airport extreme's yet but the older macbooks sure have good range/signal when running Windows.

So which would you rate in terms of
A Range
B Performance
C reliability - not requiring a reset on a DHCP source.


PS if anyone knows of a good review/comparison article I'd appreciate it.

I have a Linksys WRT150N that has never had a problem getting an DHCP IP address from my cable modem. Use it to provide an internet connection for my neighbor. I am not sure of the newer Linksys products.
