I typically have a couple of linksys routers (of the WRT54* variety) and a few home grown ones as well...however, I have nothing that does 802.11n.  Anyone gone "n" yet?  And, if so, what do you have and how has it been working for you?

Ok.  Here is what I picked up today:



Thermaltake "Blac X" storage docking station
Linksys WRT600n wireless router (dual radios, 4 GigE interfaces, USB for external storage, etc)
MyBook 1TB external disk (USB, now connected to the WRT600n)

my last linksys router (WRV54g) blew chunks. I subsequently hate linksys now :)

I picked up a Dlink DIR-655 and my download speeds on dslreports.com went from 300KB/s to 500KB/s no BS.

I dont use n but the g is faster and connects way faster and that's even w/ the wireless range on the router set to low
