Hi, I have had this SMC barricade router for about 4 months now. The first one they sent to me didn't work at all, so I had to send it back. They sent me another one, it barely worked. I am lucky to get 15 feett of range on this thing! I wasn't under the impression these things had to be Direct Lien of Sight?! As far as my research told me, they had 150ft range indoors. The computer with the wireless connection card is at most 20 feet away, and it only has a wall w/ a door thats always open to go through. I am puzzeled?? The Wireless NIC in that machine is very cheap midn you, I think I got it for 15 dollars. Now, I am willing to buy a new router, but I just don't want that router to fail either! This house was built in 1937. The outside of it is brick, I am not sure about the inside walls though? If anyone has any input on this, or has an experience with a good but affordable router, I'd appreciate the input. Thanks.
