Bear in mind that a wireless router means that your wireless access is
limited to the position of your router and ADSL connection.
I was under the impression that the range would be in the order of around 100-200 feet +/- a brick wall or two.
Since I've been working on a Wi-Fi link budget spreadsheet for work over
the last week or two, I can tell you that a brick wall or two will be
very heavily on the minus side of 100 feet.
In my house, one of the front bedrooms is about 10m from my AP
(Linksys WAP54G), a laptop there will often cycle through the various
11g speeds from 6 up to 54Mbps and back again. That's through 2 walls
and a floor, none of them brick.
Range is always at a premium as soon as you stop radiating through free
Mine is loft mounted and works at full speed (54Mbs) through two floors and a wall, plus providing reasonable coverage out to the far end of the back garden. I found it useful to experiment with the antenna orientation, to get the best coverage.
