    I believe that any MIMO 802.n draft router such as the Netgear RangeMax router will give the best coverage for home. I just bought one made by Airlink and where I could get wireless signals from two or three of my neighbors, there were now 8-10! Not that I use them, my home unit delivers the best performance. But it does speak volumes for range delivery. Please note: wireless security is not to be taken lightly! By the way, any 802.11n system is using draft specifications. That means, make sure the unit is upgradable to future draft changes (along with the PC wireless units) or buy enough current draft spec wireless recevers to last a while.

    Just the same, keep in mind placement can affect your performance. Wireless signals go through wallboard, ceiling board, furnace quite easily but have a harder time going through metal and glass. Also, visuallize the signal path from the router to the PC and try to minimize long wall penetrations where the angle of the signal through the wall is substantially non-perpendicular to the wall. It will make a sizeable difference.
