Default Smokin' new wireless...

I finally upgraded to a Belkin Pre-N router and card.... DAM! I feel like I could get a speeding ticket on the information super-highway! Going Pre-N doubled my range and I'm connected at 108Mbs..... I'm happy with it....

Of couse, unless you had a high speed fiber optic line to your house, you probably wouldn't notice any difference

I bought for the range, but the web does seem faster... From what I've heard, when the full blown N is released they boasting connection speeds of 180Mbs... so thing like wireless video will be possible.

Probably faster due to a better signal, but if your broadband internet connection is say, 5Mbps, 108Mbps vs. 54 or 11 ain't going to matter in the slightest.
