    Hey guys,

    I am doing a network installation for a company on Thursday and I finally talked them into going with the latest technology and getting the Wireless N for the new office. The main people in the office will be using N cards but they will have sub contractors that have an office within the building that visit on ocassions that will be using the Wireless G within their laptops. I of course want to make sure I can extend the G range throughout the office with no issues. What Wireless G bridge/signal extender do you recommend that works really well?

    Wireless N has not been standardized yet. I'd think twice about doing a corporate installation based on pre-N.

    Oh I let them know this believe me but they said they want to be on the top. I explained the standard could be changed and they are not concerned with it. Must be nice to have money like that :)

    Any ideas on if the current G-Signal extenders will work with this unit?

    Well, Thibor said he is in the process of porting Hyperwrt to the WRT300N and then you could use WDS with a WRT54GL or another WRT300N to accomplish this.

    he could but tbh you would not want bugs in the firmware on a business. you want a stable firmware that preforms.

    svtbolt ther is no linksys range extender as yet in preN afaik.

    I would strongly suggest you not use the 300N for your installation. The router has major issues and does not work well with G installs in the vicinity.

    Thanks for the details guys I may have to talk them into going with a G router and be happy until the standard is set.
