Which is better. My laptop uses an integrated g card and I thought if i upgraded to an N adapter it would be better. Oh and what is up with Belkin's N+ or N1 names? And what is dual band, i see lynksis has dual band options. I'm most concerned about RANGE increase. thanks!
*did a little thinking. I'm assuming belkin's "N1" label just means it is dual band? This is what I'm looking at for max range and a good price
ok ill look into that. I now see CNET is saying N+ is actually better range but is not dual band. I don't understand this stuff. All I want is range. I will be on campus and I don't have to pay for my own internet but i need to be able to get the signal. Sometimes indoors the walls get in the way. Plus I want to be able to be more moble with my laptop and be able to get wireless connection in as many locations as possible. If I really want the bandwidth I'll find a good spot or hardwire my internet, im not worried about computer gaming in the middle of nowhere.
And Dlink calls their one card "extreme" lol... Is that the same as N+? Could I use an extreme adapter with an N+ router or is extreme just a word they used to name their adapter geez this is confusing. I don't know what letters and symbols signify compatibility and which are made up by the brand
haha Yeah i do go on newegg and look at the reviews. Belkin's website has a nice fancy slideshow trying to convince us that N has much longer range than G. Also I'm not sure if my adapter has MIMO which i guess is critical for extending range and not dropping signal (avoiding dead zones)
