Excerpt: One way to nab a good budget 802.11n router is to buy a formerly high-end model that has come down in price. Even if it is dated, we like the design of the WNR834B, which sits vertically on your desk. The Smart Wizard setup had us surfing the Web in just a few minutes.
Pros: Whole-house coverage, Fastest budget router, Lots of extras,
Cons: pSome problems with VoIP and video streamingpp p
Summary: It's got good range and can transfer files quickly, but it's not a major step up from existing 802.11g routers. It's not worth upgrading to this router if you're already using a decent 802.11g router, but if you're in the market for a new router anyway, this one is good value.
Pros: Zippy 802.11g performance, excellent range, easy to set up and use
Cons: Slower 802.11n performance than we were expecting, Wi-Fi Multimedia Mode didn't seem to work on our test router
