    The range depends on many things and there is definitely no fixed value to remember.

    You should have a pretty icon or an animation in your wireless program that tells you how good the signal is.

    It depends on the Wireless router, If its a good brand such as Netgear, Linksys etc then you are talking about 50 metres or so, assuming its on the G band, the B band will be slightly less,.

    However distance can be affected by Walls, concrete, etc etc.
