    i got this some weeks ago, and got a D-Link DWA-140 USB 2.0 802.11n Stick yesterday
    i must say, 802.11n Draft 2.0 is fast and stable!
    it transfer files at 8 mb/s (80mbps)
    i can now steam hd discs, hd ts, and everything wireless without any problem
    gaming isnt even a problem with 802.11n, no dropouts what so ever and my ping says the same as wired
    DIR-655 is GREAT, its fast, stable and has some awesome performace

    it goes 6-8 mb/s over 100mbit wired to wireless, and the n standard isnt finished yet so it might even get faster
    when they upgraded the DIR-655 to draft 2.0 it got more speed to

    steaming HD Discs works fine it does it at 20mbps aka 2 mb/s ^^

    802.11G sucks ass

    slow aka only 20mbps usable bandwidh aka 2 mb/s

    they update it like 10 times a year and i like that, i dont want some router that never gets updated

    I'm still a little leary about these (not D-Link per se) because they still have not finalized the 802.11n standard. It's still "Draft".

    dude the 802.11n standard has been draft for a half a decade :p
    they started to work in 2004 and its now 2008 :roll:

    i maxed my laptop, cant go higher than around 10 mb/s, its harddrive is to slow :p
    and it has a 100mbit card in it

    so 802.11n is ok atm, i expect it to get more performace when they get out updated firmwares

    I know, that is what makes me leary. Why can't they just settle on something?
    If so many people (manufacturers) cannot compromise on a standard after 4+ years, maybe I will wait for .. um ... 802.11q? :D

    I have the same router and yeah the "G" isn't so great on it(I run my laptop on it) I don't have any "N" stuff. I bought it real quick when my D-Link gaming router died one day outta the blue.
