Man, I wouldn't dare get a Netgear, they are absolute junk. But that's just IMO. I have one, and to keep it stable I swear I had to cut a whole in it, and install a fan. They have overheating issues. And I still have to reboot it about once every 2 weeks. Before the fan it was everyday. I use it as an AP only on my existing wired network, but it just sucks. I would never use the thing as my main network router. Linksys shouldn't be too bad, but it's still not the greatest.
I say go Senao. They have 200mw radios in them and come with High Gain Antennas. http://www.senao.com/english/product...id=02&tp2id=02
That'll be the next AP I go with, look on ebay, they're not too bad.
