Post by: leodemario on August 18, 2009, 03:20:06 PM
Hello!

I want to know what the distance wbr2310 can to reach for internal and external transmition.
Thank You in advance.

This item describes the kind of range and issues surrounding the subject for a "regular" WiFi device:

My experience has been that the 2310 is a little lower in power than some other brands, but I have managed to get a decent signal out to about 50' through two wood and plaster internal (non-load bearing) walls - after which it drops pretty quickly. After about 80', another internal wall and a couple of kitchen appliances in the way, it was just about at it's limit.

Remember it's not just the router that matters. Your PC may have a low power card in it, and those with no external antenna may also report a lower signal than others. What you get will be highly variable. Move a sofa about ten inches and signals can improve or drop off dramatically and this is of course true for all lower power devices like WiFi equipment.

I got rid of all the 2.4GHz cordless phones and replace them with 49MHz's. I'm very happy with the result.
