    Always like their kit; hopefully this lives upto to the hype because it might become the replacement for my current router.

    Looks like a nice piece of kit - I'm wondering if this could be a suitable replacement for my current router (Cisco E4200) which while a shed load better than the VM "SuperHub" that it replaced is still not particularly reliable.

    Is there some kind of special WNIC that's needed to get the best out this, or would a plain old "N" card be okay? Reason I ask is because there's Dell laptop here that looks like it's got a dodgy WLAN card in it, so replacing it would be a good opportunity to "upgrade", (plus it's my missus' so it's always a good idea to keep the other half sweet).

    I see Buffalo claim extended coverage for this - I bet it won't be able to pass my "can a signal be received the other side of a set of mirror-door'd wardrobes" test.

    Correction needed:

    "good practises" --> "good practices" ("practise" is the verb and "practice" is the noun)

    been keeping tabs on prices of the draytek models as I want to upgrade from the dlink that VM supplied (its functional, thats about it), but this might tip the scales a bit, wonder if Draytek are releasing one soon.
