I'm looking to buy a router for my girlfriend...She gets 5Mbps Download from her ISP.
I plan on getting her a Surface on her birthday, this way we can Skype and she doesn't need to be tied to her desktop.
The Wi-fi signal in her house barely gets out of her room, it's one of those old D-Link routers.
My main concerns are Range and Speed. Her upload speed, I don't remember what it is...and I kinda want not to because it makes me sad inside haha, is pretty low. I wanted to preserve the up and down speeds as much as possible. Not looking forward to buying a $50+ router really. They use absolutely 0 wireless devices in her house as of now. Should I look into a 150n or a 300n? Her house I'd say nears 1700ft sq and the router will be at the very edge at the house.
I really don't know what to think, since i have a WRT160n and the range is pretty bad and it was not very cheap, tho, 4 yrs ago
