WOW! That's some operating range. Looks like a nice piece of equipment, too bad I can't really use something that powerful with my mini. (I mean, I COULD use it... actually the power of the signal alone might make it worth it, but I just had QWEST hook up a hard connection in my "office").

That's a nice looking wireless router! It tops the AirPort Extreme with Gigabit, but it's a shame that it doesn't have a USB port.

This has to be one of the most attractive routers I have ever seen. The specs ain't that shabby either.

It's a bit pricey, but that is one sexy looking router. Has anyone seen a picture of the back and ports? I don't see anything on Belkin's site.

Actually that's not too much more than the Linksys router that has gigabit ports, but the Linksys does have USB.
Here's the Linksys: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833124081
and a Linksys that has gigabit without USB

Awesome! I've been looking to buy an N and Gigabit Ethernet router for a few months, so I will be looking forward to the reviews.
