    Thats the same system I use too. I've had the laptop over 200 feet away from the router with no problems at all.

    I hated Linksys, just my opinion but, i had the 54-G stuff and it sucked. I couldn't get a signal 70 feet away from the router!

    Now my D-Link 624 changed that. I got signals all over the house :)
    If you have $ go for this:

    EDIT: I have the DI-624 just so ya know.

    *Edited by the star* just make sure you get a Wireless-G (802.11g) router and wireless 802.11g card no matter which company you use

    both are good companys to work with
