Linksys WRT320N Dual-Band review
The last time we looked at a Linksys router the company was still working on developing some proper software for the Mac. Thankfully, it now seems to have sorted out the Mac side of things, and the WRT320N Dual-Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router is supplied with a Setup program that runs on the Mac and allowed us to get the router up and running in a matter of minutes.
We like the streamlined ‘flying saucer’ design of the router, which makes a pleasant change from the boring boxy design of most routers. It doesn’t include a modem, so you’ll need to use your existing broadband modem to connect the router to the internet. However, its strong point is that it’s a ‘dual-band’ router that allows you to select either the 2.4GHz or 5.0GHz frequency band.
This will be useful for people who may suffer from interference in their home or office, allowing them to choose whichever band provides the clearest signal for their wireless network.
