You should maybe investigate why its dropping out first before spending money............

Try the program inSSIDer to establish what other wireless sources are close by and the possibility of interference..........:smashin:

There's no difference between the signal "strength" of G and N. If you are getting poor signal reception from a G AP, there's no reason for it to be any better with an N AP - it could even be worse!

Don't for get that wifi is a two way street: AP's transmit to client devices, client devices transmit to AP's. It's perfectly possible that the reason for sessions "dropping out" is because the client can't transmit a good enough signal for the router to "hear."

To echo the previous response - I'd suggest you read the Wi-Fi interference FAQ in this forum before spending any money. It may be that all you need to do is change radio channels.
