If you're considering switching to the SMC, just know that it's not exactly much of an upgrade. Many of us are disappointed in its performance and limitations. Every modem router combo I've read about or used has had some quirk that isn't present when an individual modem and router is used. Personally I'm planning on picking up a Zoom 5341J and build a pfSense router.
This is a new
Netgear device. It is D3 capable (8x4 channels) and is actually quite nice. Although they made the web interface look the same as the SMC D3G, it certainly isn't the same guts and obviously has a few minor bugs (which is to be expected, as I don't think it's even really being deployed much yet).--
