    I have a pre-sales question that pretty much applies to all routers and hopefully you can help me decide what I should do.

    We all know that some N products are claiming "6x the range and 14x the speed."

    I'm not concerned about the speed really, but I question the range.

    For these new routers, does the b/g signal go "up to 6x further" or does only the n signal reach the new distances?

    Only the N signal can reach further.

    And remember that any range specifications are gathered in a lab / ideal environment, not in a typcial urban setting like most routers are used.
