    I was also tempted for the 0.5 seconds it took between skimming the article and dredging up suppressed D-link-related memories. :P

    That just looks flat out awesome, bigger screen would have been nice but it still sounds like an all round winner to me!

    I know drooling over something like this is not normal but you have to admit it is awesome looking, but then again we have seen this before with Belkin...? I think this one, will sell very well and will probably be within the top 5 of most people's list for gadgits to buy.

    I like it. £194.00

    I have to take thease blinkers off....

    Very impressive but without a built-in modem, the whole purpose of having a router is defeated. sigh!

    Would like it but it's nearly £200 :/

    But, why have an extra 'device' in your home if one can do it?
