Good day to all mtc tech guru ano po best wifi router? my Personal Computer is stationed in another house from my laptop kaya house to house and pagitan ano best? im looking at

LINKSYS WRT54G WIRELESS and LINKSYS WRT300N WIRELESS a/b/g/N Router

pero sa ibang sites ang dami nagbebenta ng LINKSYS WRT54G WIRELESS, aren't they contented with this model? purely hype lang ba?
a friend of mine suggested to get directly from PLDT DSL para compatible talaga... hope some of you can have time to give advice wanna be online often using my laptop

I would like to suggest that you should refrain from getting a mental set of "looking for the best". As you might very well know already, technology is constantly improving on a day to day basis. Lots of companies are doing their R & D every minute. What you can actually try to gauge and evaluate is what is the best you can get for the price you are willing to pay for at the given time you are needing the gadget.

the older standard routers that works for the present laptops now can cost around 1.1k sa CDR king, or 1550 tp link rounter sa gilmore.

I have two wifi routers..

linksys wrt54g (hehe.. I'm typing this from memory so pasensya na if I get it wrong) and a tplink TL-WR542G. funny.. the TPlink brand is cheaper than the linksys and dlink.

between the two I prefer the TPlink better. I use it at our office, may wifi signal hanggang sa labas and across the street. yung linksys kasi ang daming features pero hindi ko naman nagagamit since naka dynamic connection ako. mabuti sana kung naka static IP ako..

anyway.. masmalaki kasi ang antenna ng TPlink as compared to the linksys router kaya siguro masmalayo ang signal. oo nga pala, one factor that hinders wifi signal is the metal inside your walls.

pero may I suggest that you also get a wireless access point to increase the distance of your signal. hindi masyado effective kasi ang mga range extenders. in my case hindi kaya ng wifi router to provide signal in a 4-storey dorm/house. kailangan ko pa ng WAP :(

mga mtc gurus whats the difference of G and N series? How come masmahal ang N series? Mas high tech po ba ito? 15 to 20 meters away ang house ko from my other house which i plan to wifi and 3 walls in total ang pagitan, what do you think is best for me?
Do i also need to buy the booster or receiver po? thanks!

N type has a stronger signal compared to G type routers.
pero kailangan N type din and wifi card ng PC.
I even heard na tagos daw sa wall ang signal ng N type but I have not tested it personally

it depends rin sa type and composition ng wall. based on my experience eto.

syempre kapag de-plywood lang ang mga dingding nyo, buong bahay magkakaroon ng signal. however.. if your walls have plenty of metal supports inside it (yung mga iron bars and mga alambre), the signal strength becomes diminished.

lalo na kapag "chicken fence" ang laman ng mga dingding nyo. somehow the signal strength goes down :(

im using a dlink router at home and it's fine i guess.. the connection just seems to slow down a bit when my kids start using their psp's. but it pretty much does the job for me

there's an easier solution. normally there's a cardbus that accompanies these routers (at least my linksys did).

Take a look at your wireless chipset at network connections. Look for it in Google. Most probably your using G.
