Wireless Router Advice
Need some advice here. I share internet with my mother-in-law (who lives one house down in a row home) because only one company services the area for 75/month. She has internet and I have Hawking 300N wireless repeater. She use to have a Linksys WRGT 54G, but I want to get a new one. I purchased the Belkin N300 which reached my front porch and the Hawking repeater took over for the most part. Since the Belking N600 DB was only 30 more bucks, I bought that one as well to test it out. Now the 600DB has 2 more antennas for the 5GHz band, but the repeater doesn't not hookup to the 5GHz band. So the differences between the 300 and 600 are the 5GHz band and a media server. I cannot find anywhere online if the 600 has better signal than the 300 on the 2.4GHz band.
Does anyone know this? or if the 600 is worth the extra 30 bucks for my needs?
Also, since I have a Hawking repeater, would the HAWNR3 wireless router be a better suite for me? I cannot find info on this either and no local stores carry the HAWNR3 so I would have to purchase online. The repeater has worked great for the past 3 years, so I trust Hawking products.
Again, the router is placed at my mother-in-laws front window and to my front porch is about 60ft, remember it's row home, so it's out front window, then immediately right for about 60ft, and my repeater is placed right in my front window.
So.... are there differences between the Belkin 300 and 600 that justify the 30 bucks for the extra 2 antennas on the 5GHz band and media server software (which I won't use) or do you guys think the Hawking HAWNR3 with range amplifier will give better signal to make it to my hawking repeater?
I really apppreciate any help and advice!
