I have a few queries for all people in the similar situation?
1. What kind of signal strength is observed?
2. Do connections drop often?
3. What is the typical distance?
My experience with Netgear DG834G has not been very good. I use it
with Thinkpad T60p with Atheros chip (Using non-free drivers on
Mandriva 2007). I cannot go beyond 10ft without serious problems and
the signal strength within a feet is never more than 67% ;-( With XP
(yes, I have!!!!!) no problems of this sort are seen.
Looked like made a wrong choice with the router. I am happy with the
laptop (minus wireless part)
I would very much like to try other options and make a transition some time.
