Home Network Router for T500 w/Intel WiFi Link 5300 (AGN)

2008-11-29, 4:32 AM

I just purchased a new T500 notebook (Type 2242-34U) and am interested in setting up a home network.  I have broadband cable hooked up to my Dell PC (Time Warner/Roadrunner).  My T500 comes with Intel WiFi Link 5300 (AGN).  Any advice and/or recommendations with regards to the model/type of router is greatly appreciated.  Thanks a bunch.

Get a Cisco/Linksys WRT-610N.

 

As Small Net Builder says.....

 

But if you're looking for a reasonably-priced dual-band, dual-radio draft 11n router, the 610N continues the 600N's tradition of being the only viable game in town.

I'm using a Linksys WRT-600N (the previous model) with 4965AGN and 5300AGN cards in various ThinkPads and have been very satisfied with the 802.11n performance.

 

Cheers,

 

Bill

Thank you for responding to my message.  Did you have any installation/configuration problems with the Linksys router?  All the best.
