What is the range of Wireless G/N Routers?

Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate x64, C2D2.8GHZ/4GB
Hi
I was thinking of buying a wireless router. I was confused at the range, What range will I get from a 150M WirelessN Router locked at 10Mb/s and working as b/g/n mix and what range will I get from a 300M WirelessN Router locked at 10Mb/s and also working as b/g/n mix and what range will I get from a 54M WirelessG Router locked at 10Mb/s. As I will use the router for internet only and my internet speed is rated at 1Mb/s and I get a total down speed of 100Kb/s. Speed is not the issue what I need is range. I live in a 2 story house and will need for the signals to get from the ground floor to my room on the first floor.
Which wireless router will give more range at the settings I mentioned? The G router, The Lite 150M N router or the 300M N router.
Please Help me on this and please hurry because I can't wait to get one.
Please HELP!!!

Regards...

Did you try reading the specifications for these units? That info should be in the manual or on the OEM's site.

I couldn't possibly answer this question myself without first looking through the spec's on them.......and I'm not going to since you can just as easily as me.

I don't mean to be rude, and I'm not trying to be, but this isn't the type of info I keep on the top of my head. It's the kind of thing one researches if one finds they have a need to know it.

Don't forget, if you have problems finding the info you're after, you can always call the OEM's support line and ask them

Listen, I hate to be rude but sometimes I am and I suspect I'm about to be...

Simply put, the "range" of any wireless device is going to be dependant on the power and frequency of the device as well as any/all interference in the area where it's deployed. Interference in the form of other wireless devices on the same frequency/channel, walls, ceilings, concrete, steel and interference caused by electrical equipment.

The ONLY way you'll be able to figure anything out is to:

A) know the specs of the devices you're looking at using
B) know what interference you'll encounter where you wish to deploy a devices
and
C) where ever possible, get your hands on a the equipment and lab it out.

I would bet cash money there's nobody that hangs out in this forum, or any other, that will spoon feed you the information you're looking for. As I stated previously, if it were me researching this, I'd actually research it myself as compared to trying to get someone else to do the groundwork for me.

You asked.

I responded with, "I don't know the specs offhand and I doubt anybody else will so you'll have to find out for yourself"

I can't help that you don't like the answer but there it stands. You can come back and check this thread daily for a week or two but I suspect that at the end of that time, you won't get any better answer than what I've given you because this isn't the type of information anybody has on the top of their head and nobody is going to do the research for you.

So again I reiterate, get off your duff and start googling and making phone calls. The OEM's (that's "Original Equipment Manufacturer") for each device can give you the info you seek. If it's not in the documentation, call their support lines and ask.

It matters not how straight the gate,

Okay! Not A VERY NICE AND KIND ANSWER and do I look like an idiot to you. I googled for what I was looking for and when I couldn't find it I posted the question here. Also I am not in the US or UK or anyother country which is mentioned on the site and there is no support no. for my country mentioned on the site. This is the REASON I posted my question.. Well after YOU ANNOYED ME SO MUCH I CALLED THE US HELPLINE FROM GOOGLE VOICE AS THE CALLS TO US and CANADA are free and asked them. NOW BECAUSE OF YOU I AM IN A REALLY BAD MOOD AND I AM NOT TALKING TO ANYONE AT ALL. MY GIRLFRIEND IS EVEN MAD AT ME AT THE MOMENT BECAUSE OF MY MOOD. WHAT I HAVE DONE SINCE WE BOTH CAME HOME FROM WORK IS FIGHT WITH HER SINCE YOUR SECOND REPLY ANNOYED ME SO MUCH ESPECIALLY THIS "I would bet cash money there's nobody that hangs out in this forum, or any other, that will spoon feed you the information you're looking for."

WELL BTW MY PROBLEM IS SOLVED AND THANKS ALOT FOR RUINING MY DAY. :@

Dude.........you're in control of your own emotions and attitude.

A smart man would have gone home and said to his girlfriend, "Honey, this guy on the internet totally annoyed me and I'm all upset........can I have a hug?"

A smart girlfriend would have given the smart man the hug and the smart man would have let it all go and felt better because hugging your lady is a million times nicer than carrying angst around from a complete stranger on the internet.

Too bad you're not smart.

I think if we dig a little deeper we'll find you're annoyed because you were hoping someone here would spoonfeed you answers so you wouldn't have to:
A) use your own brain
B) use up your own time researching the answer

I didn't play along. I cheated and made you do the work yourself and now you're being Mr Grumpy Pants because you had to do something akin to actual work.

Boo freaking Hoo you whiney baby!

WELL BTW MY PROBLEM IS SOLVED AND THANKS ALOT FOR RUINING MY DAY

Isn't it amazing what you can do if you only apply a little skull sweat to a problem and don't always look for the easy answer or take a shortcut! I knew you could get the answers yourself if you only tried.

Oh and you're totally welcome for me ruining your day. Just an FYI for future reference.......if I ruined your day it's only because YOU allowed it.

I didnt' make any special effort to do so, I just refused to do research for you I felt you would do better doing yourself.

Hey, I have a great idea. Want to improve your girlfriends day and make up for pissing her off? Just show her this thread. I'm sure it'll maker her laugh seeing how silly you've been.
