I just upgraded my Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G router to a Netgear WNR1000v2 Wireless-N router on Comcast.
The Netgear WNR1000v2 Wireless-N router is free for Comcast customers who currently lease a High-Speed Internet modem or a Digital Voice modem from Comcast. All you have to do is pay for shipping.
Check this page, Get online anywhere in your home, with a wireless router from Comcast, to see if it's available in your area and if you qualify. Router availability varies by area.
I was concerned about making the swap, but in the Netgear configuration mode I just put in my existing network name and password, and everything still works. :-)
I'm starting to test out the new speeds and here's the speed from my laptop that's directly connected to the new router via Ethernet cable.
Here are the new speeds:
Compare these new speeds to the old speeds:
And I haven't even tested wireless speeds yet.
Unplugged the direct cable and turned on Airport WiFi.
Need to check that I have Wireless-N in this MacBook. How do I do that?
