The WRT300N ships with a good warranty for a wireless router: three years of free parts and labor, as well as toll-free tech support that's available 24/7. That said, the terms don't top Belkin's lifetime support policy. The Linksys support Web site includes the obligatory downloads and FAQ sections, along with a useful 24/7 chat feature that lets you engage in a real-time virtual discussion with a support rep.

Overall, the Linksys WRT300N is a good router from a dependable networking company. While its maximum throughput and mixed-mode throughput were good, its long-range performance was poor, which is especially disappointing given that one of the strengths of the 802.11n spec is high throughput at great distances. If you're interested in buying Draft N equipment, we recommend that you wait until we review the rest of the pack to see how the Draft N gear fares. After all, you may end up having to upgrade yet again when the 802.11n spec is finalized; it's still too early to tell.
