Wireless Set Up for Computers and TiVo

Just a quick note to clear some bad info from web and stores on setting up wireless.

The new N band routers are wonderful with 4 times the range and 12 times the power. However do not buy into the sales and web statements that you can use a G band range expander with an N band router. After I believed this from store and web I finally called the company (Linksys) and found that not only does the G band range expander not work with an N band router but it actually inhibits the N band range by blocking a lot of it.

I am very pleased with the N band router and am running TiVo, 2 computers and Vonage phone service with it with no range expander. No word on when N band range expander will be out???
