I don't think manufacturers like to estimate "range" since this number depends on to many external variables. However, the wiki article ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_802.11 ) for 802.11n estimates range at 70 meters (230') compared to 38 meters (125') of 802.11g. I think these are indoor numbers in an open/cubicle environment at maximum throughput.

I'm guessing Cisco doesn't want to dig itself into a hole by marketing ranges that may not be possible.

Cisco offers 5000 square feet per AP as a very rough rule of thumb for indoor WLAN design. That works out to a cell radius of about 40 feet.

You don't know anything for sure until you do a survey, though.
