my best friend's mom makes $61/hour on the computer. She has been fired from work for 6 months but last month her pay was $21008 just working on the computer for a few hours. Go to this web site and read more NuttyR|ch.c0m

The Firmware Fiasco with the DGL-4500, and DLinks poor customer service over the issue, has forever cured me of any desires to own DLink products. Ever again.

There was only one FW issue which was fixed. The DGL-4500 was and still is a great router. All other issues were end user configuration problems. I have 3 4500's and they all work great. Going to miss the DGL series.

I wouldn't bother buying an AC router now because the standard isn't finalized yet. It's still in the 'draft' stage.

Agree, for those who want new toys and early adopters thats fine too. For those who want to wait for more stability, quality and standardization, thats fine aswell.

Here's an article I don't believe that anyone has publicly seen just yet...

When will A/C be available installed into a laptop and/or mobile device?? If you happen to work for one of these OEM's, please feel welcome to give your company a shameless plug

ASUS is currently the only manufacturer have an ac radio in a laptop.

We'll have to wait until next year when the standard is finalized to see more ac devices.

I'm still satisfied with 802.11n.

I don't see this catching on as quickly as N did, which if anyone remembers, was painfully slow adopting.

Anyone know what the max nodes you can connect wireless on this device? just wondering if with the increase bandwidth comes increased number of nodes you can have connected at once.

Will see how A/C plays out. Need client side support either on board or wifi adapters to upgrade those PCs. This goes for ALL Mfrs bring out A/C routers.

I see they added bridge mode for those users always asking about routers not having it or trying to make there routers bridgeable on WiFi. I guess you can now on this one. Maybe this will satisfy those users, finally!

The DIR-857 is a solid router on 450Mb and wired. I suppose the A/C might be for the first adopters of A/C and not just cuz "I have 5G!" I've had 5G since the DGL-4500. (insert muahahahah laugh). Laugh now, will see how it all does compaired to the rest of the A/C routers.

Why would 10Gb ports be needed. Where on the client side is 10Gb speeds supported? No Duh.

Let the A/C wars begin. hehe.

Hey.That_Dude

The 802.11ac standard doesn't end at 1300Mbps. If it did, then I wouldn't demand 10Gb ports. HOWEVER, since it is supposed to be a MULTI-GIGABIT interface wouldn't it make sense that you'd want a wire that could deliver MULTI-GIGABIT speeds?

Unless you run ad hoc... then i just feel sorry for you.

And you've obviously missed my reference to the "5G" naming that broadcom is adopting for the 5th generation of 802.11.

Well patience is a virtue, which I feel sorry for you. The mfrs have the pink slip on what they put in these things. Demanding anything from them will probably not get you anything. Enjoy.

Hey.That_Dude

And the Tri-Band routers are where? and 10Gb ports are where? why would anyone want this other than "I have 5G! (insert imbecile's laugh)"
