Does anyone else have have an opinion on that?
Unfortunately, you're thread is in the "LAN Switching and Router" section of CSC. So unless you move this thread (upper right-hand corner), to the wireless section not alot of people can see it.
Also does anyone know what the range is?
You need to provide more information.
If you are, for example, in a large open wide field. There are no obstacles around you, your AP has internal antennas, you have all data rates for 802.11a/b/g/n enabled, you have no bluetooth, or there are no nearby wireless devices other than your AP, then you could potentially look at a distance of about 30 to 35 metres in a single direction.
