Which has stronger signal: WMP300N or WUSB300N ?

    I have been looking over the data sheets for these two Linksys wireless 802.11n Draft 2.0 cards, and am wondering if one has a better signal strength range than the other?

    WMP300N is the PCI version of the adapter and here is what is listed for it from the SPEC sheet:

    Transmitted Power 802.11g: 12±1dBm (Typical); Wireless-N: 10±1dBm (Typical)
    Receive Sensitivity 54Mbps @ -70dBm (Typical); Wireless-N @ -70dBm (Typical)

    ----------------------------------------------------------
    WUSB300N is the USB version of the adapter and here is what is listed for it from the SPEC sheet:

    RF Pwr (EIRP) in dBm 802.11b: 14±1dBm (Typical)
    802.11g: 14±1dBm (Typical)
    Wireless-N: 14±1dBm (Typical)

    Receive Sensitivity in dBm 11Mbps @ -86dBm (Typical)
    54Mbps @ -68dBm (Typical)
    Wireless-N @ -62dBm (Typical)

    ----------------------------------------------------

    So, is there any difference?

    yep, based on the specs you have posted the WUSB300N is the USB version is a better choice if you are choosing on just specs. The TX is 2dBm more power out and on RX they are just about the same, within 2dbm and that is nothing. So if you want more power out the USB version is better. More than likely you will not see any difference in the two. This is the short verison without getting to technical. Hope this helps.
