    Maybe it's just me, but I would have expected some indication of how good the routers performance on a Gigabit network was.

    Just doing a 10/100 test does seem cutting it a little short...

    I have a Linksys WAG320N and while being cheaper it also offers everything that one does while adding a few high end things. Been rock solid for me and would recommend it to anyone.

    +1 here.

    Otherwise though, thank you Hexus. I've been eyeing this router for a little while now, and wondered if this 'self-healing' business was just marketing.
    I'm commenting on an internet forum. Your facts hold no sway over me.

    The design reminds me of the old 2wire routers, why dont they just do an 'apple-esque' aluminium one or something.

    Billion BiPac 7800n looks like a better DSL router at the same price.
