    I have the Lyksys wrt160N for all my Macs. Works great! However, the range is still not good enough for taking my MacBook Pro just outside on the patio. I asked Lyksys if they had a booster or laptop plug-in that would allow me to use the laptop outside. They said they have nothing for this router and nothing for a MacBook. Does anyone have a suggestion?

    Er...... the 150n and the 160n were never meant to be a "real n performer". It was an attempt by Linksys to bridge the gap between g and n providing a good, cheap and valuable quality!

    For better performance and ranges, try the 300+n range or anything from Netgear!
