Wireless Routers under $120

Netgear NEXT Wireless Router WNR834Bv2

We love the clamshell-white design on this Draft N 2.0 router; it doesn’t have the bulky protruding antennas found on other units. Speeds hit almost 120Mbps in ideal conditions without other wireless signals present, but the range was less than 1,000 feet – not as high as the 1,400-foot range on the Buffalo WZR2-G300N. The Netgear WNR834Bv2’s quality-of-service features didn’t work as well as some premium-priced routers for smoothing out latency issues for WLAN games and VoIP.
