Most people do not judge a router by transfer rate, or by speed.

They should. But, what's of most important to people when they
judge a router, is how far they can get from it, and still pick up
a signal from their devices.

And, ultimately, that is the reason people use wireless.
So, there's much to consider when choosing a model.

What should also be considered when trying to improve
your WiFi, is to consider the encryption you are using.
Is it WEP, WPA, WPA2, etc. This can greatly affect
the speed and transfer rate you can operate at.

Sometimes, it's not the router, it's the technology in the
device trying to access it. You may have a state of the art
router, but have an antiquated laptop, or handheld device
or printer; and that may be your limitation.

I am using a TP-link 1043 gigabit router that i bought for 35 euro's(50 dollars) I was promised a speed of 100/100mb by my provider and I Always get around 90/90 so I am pleased. The reach of the wifi is about 15 to 20 mtrs. Only thing is that it only transmits on the 2.4 ghz band. But still a very good buy I think
born to grumble.........
