    Does anyone know when we may :?: see a wireless router than has gigabit ports on it vs 100bps?

    Well since the current WRT units cant even process 100 Mbits a second on the wan port I don't think slapping a Gigabit switch on the front is going to be that popular, unless an altra cheap chipset becomes available.

    i was wondering this myself.

    It's getting pretty hard to find a new desktop or laptop that doesn't have gb ethernet onboard, yet nobody seems to be producing any hubs/switches or routers within most home users price range that support it. seems like a big waste to me.

    I have a dell laptop and homebuilt desktop and both have gb lan but i couldn't find a single wifi router that supported gb speeds at all.

    I ended up getting the WRT54G because of it's other features and the custom firmware support, but if there had been something else out there with gb support i'd have gone for that in a shot.

    54g speeds are okay for wifi, but 10/100 is a long time out of date at this stage.
