At A Glance

The Netgear Trek is extremely versatile and it delivers great speed and range, but it operates only on the 2.4GHz frequency band.

The Asus WL-330NUL is amazingly small, but that attribute doesn't make up for its flaws.

If you like fiddling with knobs (in software, that is), the TP-Link TL-WR710N gives you plenty to do. It has a solid feature set, but its performance lags the offerings from D-Link and Netgear. It's also very inexpensive.
