    Default Wireless N review

    Wireless N review. We have owned Wireless N for a month now. The set up, D-LINK DIR-625 as the ‘Router’ and a D-LINK PCI adapter. This computer is connected to the cable Internet directly and broadcasts the wireless Internet. So not a problem on here.

    The Set-up.

    Whew! Now that this is over, I can now perform the survey!

    The home network ran superb on the first day of installation, everyone connected at their requested speed whether it was 54Mbps or 300Mbps. Day two however, chaos struck. The router kept loosing its connection. So we had a look found out there was a few problems, fixed them up and was good to go. After this little blimp. The Wireless N adapter caused havoc on the Hewlett Packard Pavilion A1330n, the music started jittering, pausing and starting, the XP log on sound stopped and started about 14 times during the log in. Now at this point, you’re wondering, what has this got to do with Wireless N? It’s a valid question, read on and you will find out why. My dad had a fiddle with his PC, took out sound card, went integrated, put sound card back in, changed PCI slots, still, exact same results. So he set the home network to broadcast at 54Mbps only, the problem disappeared.
    He thought, oh, it must be a dodgy PCI card, ill just head out and get a new Wireless N, this time, we will get a Linksys! We got a 270Mbps speed, fine, only 30Mbps below normal. But the music error occurred again! So we took it back to best buy and got the money back.
    However, all of the laptops and desktops are connecting perfectly well, the signal is much stronger than standard wireless G.

    Final thoughts on Wireless N
    Cons – Buggy, nowhere near as good as expected, full of errors.
    Pros – None!

    Final thought – save yourself $70, go with Wireless G. Wireless N, a hassle to operate, a hassle to maintain the correct speed, very buggy and personally, far too expensive.

    Wow, this is an old review, I completely forgot I did it! Well, 2 years later, and all the bugs have appeared to be gone, and I can connect to wireless N networks with no problems whatsoever. The router I recommend for Wireless N is a Linksys WRT300N.

    I have dlink dgl-4500 N router, it hosts 3 desktops, 2 laptops and all connected by wireless, except 1 desktop is wired. I didn't have any bad experience issues at all.

    Maybe your router max out it's capacity?....you have 8 connections all together, it may overloaded?

    Was shopping for a cable at the weekend and saw a Netgear wireless N1 router which is purported to have greater range than N. This could solve a problem for me.

    Anyone have any experiences or knowledge to share?
