Doesn't see to justify the $300 price tag. But not sure if anyone remembers when Cisco was starting to include the Linksys routers in their CCNA certification exam and then after a few years pulled them off the blue print. They even made the Cisco official testing centers purchase them to be able to deliver the Cisco official curriculum.

Let's see WRT54g about $50.. the WRT1900AC about $300. Yeah that sounds about right for 2014. Is the router aspect gigabit, so Ethernet connections between machines can talk that fast?

For some reason, it seems to have been designed to be invisible to radar.

OOOH! I Like!!

I've been peeking at AC routers for a while, and thinking of taking the plunge..

I think i'll wait for this bad boy to hit Newegg.

I only have one wireless device in the home, a smartphone. Kinda overkill for it! Is there any tablet that would benefit from this N band or is it mostly for laptops and such?

Pic only shows one USB port and the article says two. Is the other on the side?

Otherwise, this has to be the most burly router I've ever seen.

A lot of times what manufacturers will do, is combine eSATA and USB 2.0 in to a single port. This saves space, etc.

If you look closer you'll notice that the eSata is combined with a usb2.

That would be nice if it really did have 256GB of RAM. Not sure what you'd do with that much, but I'm sure some network administrator somewhere popped a raging brainer after reading that.

Are there any adapters on the market that can reach those speeds on 2.4Ghz?

I don't know if there was a typo in the article but I read 256MB of RAM but it is used to buffer the data between the Ethernet wired signal and the radio signal. The more users the more memory needed for buffering.

Just in time! I was just about to go look for a good router to replace my Linksys WRT110.

I Want lol. I have right now a Linksys WRT300N with DD-WRT but that is a Draft N when the companies were tring to figure out the N Band. This I would like because it has I think all the bells and whistles

I have the 310N, same as yours but with 5 Gigabit ports (4 lan + wan). Best router since the 54G that I've ever owned! I usually lock the radio to B+G, am also running DD-WRT on it as well.

I got my WRT300N at eaither a Yard Sale or a Thrift Store for $5 US

Nice fine. I love my 310N. I think it's just as solid and stable as the 54G. Just wish it had external antennas.
