I am just worried about using D-Link and Linksys gear for that type of
a project ... There are three levels:

Home User

Linksys and D-Link are home user (some will likely not agree with me
on that...). Can you use them? Sure! Will they work? Sure ... For a
bit ...

We are an ISP and before I was hired they were using D-Link and Linksys
5-port switches and diffferent locations ... Once I installed some
CISCO switches our performance went up 500%+ -- just because it states
speed X does not mean it is really that fast. I checked the data sheet
for the Linksys 802.11n radio -- it only has 10/100Mbps ports ... So the
maximum wired-to-wireless speed would be 200Mbps (upload = 100Mbps -
download = 100Mbps).
