  1. any router can do 100ft in the open; however, it really depends on the environment the router is used in. Meaning how many walls and what type of walls the signal has to go through.

    mostly dry wall and thats about it
  3. Most the larger brands have almost identical performance. You will have to decide which of the other features you need/want when selecting a router.

    It is very hard to predict how well wireless works in some environments. Even minor things like metallic paint or radiant barriers will have a large impact on performance. In your case you also have to worry more about interference, if your neighbors router happens to be have more signal than yours does you will get degraded performance.

    I suspect you will see similar results no matter which router. You may want to consider a router you can replace the antenna on if you do not get enough signal. It gives you more options if you have problems. Note although the specs for 802.11n say it can go 200ft indoors it assumes you are also willing to drop the speed to the 7m encoding and you won't even get the full 7m.

    Depending on your budget the new routers that are bieng sold have a new wireless band to go with the b/g/n and it's called Ac. This new band will give wireless speeds up to 1 gb and that would allow you to get a higher speed when your at a further distance. These routers are backwards compatible so they will work with the older wireless bands also.
    If budget is a concern then you can look for a router with three antenna's and some of them have a screw on antenna and can be replaced with a larger one for adding some extra distance.
