What are the wireless ranges of the 802.11g radios in the following: WRT54G WRT610N I specifically would like to know the range of each and does the WRT610N 802.11G radio have a greater range than the WRT54G 802.11G radio. Not surprisingly, Linksys couldn't even help me.

I am not sure the radio range but i do know the 610 has a greater range due to it being 802.11n and having 3 antennas.

Also the 610 broadcasts 5ghz at the same time as 2.4 so you can put the heavy duty items on the 5ghz and keep things like netbooks on the 2.4ghz

PS I have a 610 at home and my fiances parents have a wrt54g at their house.

SmallNetBuilder benchmarks a lot of wireless equipment and puts it in a database you can compare various ways. This is a comparison of the WRT54G2 and the WRT610N throughput at the same distances, but it looks like it compares G to N.
