I've had too many fails with wireless bridges that our office won't advise or deploy such a setup. One of the reasons is that 802.11n 40 MHZ OFDM mode has only one non-overlapping channel.
We have far better experience with powerline bridges with WiFi on the other side. Example follows. Remember there are at least a dozen sets like this:
A few months ago I scored a Netgear N900 router for a pretty good price. I've been using it as my main home router. With changes in the design of my home I was forced to relocate my router to a far corner of my home. In an effort for keep adequate coverage and speed I wanted to add a second router in the center of my home in bridge mode.
Having had many issues in the past bridging, I figured I'd reach out for advice and insight before purchasing products and such.
In my mind sticking with the same brand (and model) would make things far less problematic. Now on other forums someone mentions to just downgrade to the N600 router and use that as opposed to another N900. Is this a good move? And if so what makes it a good move?
Both are within my budget, but I want to know WHY as opposed to someone simply saying "Higher the number the better the performance".
