Linksys Wireless-N Gigabit Router WRT310N

After installing two of these, I have to give credit to Linksys for providing such an easy-to-understand install for the Linksys Wireless-N Gigabit Router WRT310N.

Wireless routers can be tricky. They don’t have to be but they generally are. In fact, some are often nearly impossible. (Hello D-Link.) So when a wireless install is 1) simple, and 2) works, its noteworthy.

Of course, if the router stank that would be a bummer. However, this router is awesome. How awesome? In a 8000-sq.ft., two-story private residence it reached to nearly every spot upwards as well as outwards. And that was using the “g-protocol.” Using the “n-protocol” (and a genuine gigabit switch and new cat-6 cabling) was outrageous in its range and speed even though only described as a mid-range wireless router.

Plus, it is perhaps the most attractive (non-apple) router I have installed.

I have installed two WRT310N’s so far, and I look to install more in the future.
