What Revision is this? I'm router shopping myself and a great Wireless N with Gig E ports at this price sounds awesome.

Great. And this is the latest that has been put out? Also, do you know if this router would work on things other then FiOS?

Yes, it's a standard router and can be used with other ISPs.

Cool. That's what I'm interested in since I'm a cable user. Ya'll FiOS users have some neat toys.

I'm reading what I think is the Rev I datasheet and it doesn't say anything about usage monitoring ability that I've found. Do you have anything to say about that? I use DD-WRT on my current router and it has usage meters built in.

Ok. If anyone knows the answer to my question, feel free to chime in. If I go for this, this'll be my first Actiontec anything. I've used Linksys stuff since the beginning back in 2005.

No usage meters.

Also not the fanciest 802.11n router available. Only 2.4Ghz band. No 5Ghz. No 40Mhz channels.

That's a problem for me. Since I count on my usage. And if I'm gonna spend any money, I'm looking for latest, greatest and to be able to change the firmware. I'd be using it for 3-5 years, maybe longer depending on speed upgrades.

You might want to look into one of the new draft 802.11ac wireless routers if you're looking for the latest and greatest combined with feature rich features. That's usually going to come from the main router OEMs like Linksys, Netgear, D-Link, etc. ISP partnered OEMs typically don't have the latest and greatest features to cut down on cost and support for the ISPs.

Yes. I've heard about those. Until the 802.11ac line is finished and made standard, I won't be going for one. Mine will probably be a latest Wireless N to be used sometime later this year or into next. But we'll see. I'm looking for a certain set of features, etc. So, there is is. It's nice to have options and I'm grateful for the info I found out here.

Yeah, I was looking at the E-4200. When I actually go and buy, I bet it'll be like a E-5000 or something

I wouldn't touch a Linksys anything after their debacle with firmware upgrades from a few weeks ago. Sorry, I'm not going to let them have control over my router. Ever.

There is no need to have a router rely on a web service for connection, configuration, or anything else. Their stuff isn't that great anyway.

Definitely. Just pointing out what they tried and I can almost guarantee they will try it again.

I think its great and all the price went down, but I didn't pay I just walked in and asked for the latest wireless n router. They gave me it :-/

I suppose if you wanted to keep it then this would be a good deal.

Can someone point out the real-life performance improvements one of these would have over a Rev D with something like a TRENDnet 300 Mbps 802.11n WAP?

Thanks for the heads up, ordered today at work and just got email that it shipped from PA, to CA, 4 days UPS.
Glad I waited and didn't buy this from eBay or when it was higher from Verizon

The revI has gigabit and newer MOCA technology I believe

If I'm not mistaken, gigabit only matters if hardwired to a computer with compatible networking capability. Does any of this help with DVR/STB/VOD performance?

Correct.

Actiontec routers since the rev. F have been MOCA 1.1 compliant.
MOCA 1.1 has a higher PHY rate which could be of some benefit if ALL your MOCA devices are 1.1.
