    In my quest for wireless perfection, I've come across the Linksys SRX router. I am quite impressed with the claims that the company is making about this product, but I want to weed out the BS from the truth. Does anyone have any experience with this router? I know it's quite new, but....first impressions, maybe?

    TIA

    Here's another bump 'cause I've been thinking about going wireless and I'm interested too.

    I'll add my outdated experience too, which is kinda strange. About 6 years ago when I first got cable I bought a Linksys router (one of the first ones, don't remember the model) and it wouldn't work for more than 30 minutes at a time. Every half hour I had to power cycle it to get back on line. Tech support was no help, so I exchanged it for a new one (they ran about $120 back then) and the EXACT same thing happened. At the same time I had a friend with the same ISP and he bought the same router and it just worked perfect for him right off the bat. I decided to try something else, so I returned it and spend $30 more on the equivalent Netgear unit and it worked perfect right out of the box. 6 years later it's still plugging away in my basement, and to this day I have no idea why the Linksys didn't.

    Strange.

    Actually, I have the exact opposite problem. I've got a Netgear wireless right now, and I hate it. I can't go more than 12 feet away form it before my signal strength drops to Low-Poor and I get about 5.5-1 mbps. So, I need somehting with considerably more range, and more powah.
