COMMENTS

For n = 4, there would be an additional 4 possible values if circuits were allowed that combine complex subcircuits in series or parallel, rather than requiring that one of them consists of a single resistor. See illustration in links. - Kival Ngaokrajang, Aug 22 2013 (rephrased by Dave R.M. Langers, Nov 13 2013)
