A regular Linksys BEFW11 (standard best-buy type router) claims 300ft range indoors and 1500ft outdoors.

AlphaShild's 1.2M sq foot coverage sounds impressive, but if I'm not mistaken, that would amount to roughly 1095ft x 1095ft. That's not terribly better than the Linksys.

AlphaShield announces WiFi router with 1.2M square foot coverage

Canadian company AlphaShield has taken the wraps off its new AS-8800 wireless router, promising a mighty 1.2 million square feet of coverage (in ideal conditions, no doubt). Supposedly, the router's Power-G technology (not to be confused with Super-G, Xtreme-G, or Kenny G) gives it up to 20 times more power than traditional routers, allowing for the wireless signal to pass through concrete walls with ease and giving you speeds up to 108Mbps over a distance of 1,200 feet indoors and 3,900 feet outdoors. To round out the package, AlphaShield's also outfitted the router with no less than five Gigabet Ethernet ports, as well as a firewall, USB print server, and VPN support, among other standard router features. You'll have to wait a bit to put all that range to the test yourself, however, with the router set to launch in January for $250.
