Let’s face it, going to an electronic store shopping for the best home or office router can be difficult especially for a new user. Today RVS looks at D-Links new DIR625 Range Booster router with Wireless N.

D-Link’s Claim:

The promised standard of Wireless N is designed to eventually offer speeds up to 600Mbps with average data transfer rates around 200Mbps and ranges extending up to 200 Feet indoors. This draft version of D- Link routers promise speeds up to 300mbps with data transfer rates reaching 130 Mbps and indoor distances up to 150 feet.
The Stash’s Findings:

Setup was quick and easy, simple enough for anyone. Installation was as easy as opening a box and popping in a CD.

The Test:

We conducted three tests to see the maximum range and speed you'll get in practical situations. Our first test showed that within a clear 10 foot distance you'll see excellent performance with no dropped signals. At 50 feet with a wall through the signal, we still get a very good or excellent connection. However, at 150 feet we see the router show its technical limit. With three walls and a distance of 150 feet, we saw numerous dropped signals with very low speeds. Taking the walls into account, you can expect about 80-100 feet with interference, and 100-150 feet without.

The Verdict:

If you’re looking to enter the “wild west” of networking, D-Link’s DIR-625 might just be what you need to help you. If you’re looking for stability, then you might want to look else where. Wireless N still has a lot of growing up to do.
