adsl router with the greatest range

  hgrock 22:12 19 Feb 2006

any help or advise would be welcomed here from you good people out there
i want to buy an ADSL router with the greatest range without adding an antenna, the Belkin Pre N looks good so does the Buffalo wmr-hp-g54 both one can only buy online, the bufaloo is cheaper but it appears to come in 2 parts modem and router and it said something about adsl 2 or +.
I have to push the signal about 150 mtrs from the house to the where i use my laptop on the farm
thanks for any help

Of the various "Pre N" systems around, the ones that use MIMO (Multi In/Multi Out) are apparently designed primarily to improve strength through and around internal obstacles. So I would not necessarily be certain of getting an improvement over a long distance instead.

Perhaps one of the boosted equivalents - from Netgear and Linksys - might be more effective, especially if you could place a booster antenna on a window ledge on the appropriate side of your house. For comparison, there is a Linksys router being used about 150 feet away from my house and gets picked up in my available network list with a middling signal strength. Obviously, as it's not my network, I have never connected to it, so I can't comment on how reliable the signal would actually be over that distance.

I can't think in metres, but I suspect that 150 of them might be a stretch too far.
