    D-Link has begun shipping the next generation of its successful gaming router, the Draft 802.11n Xtreme N Gaming Router with GameFuel technology and built-in OLED display. The manufacturer's suggested retail price for the new router, model number DGL-4500, is $239.99. The router's selling point is its quality-of-service technology, which prioritizes gaming traffic. It's optimized for both PC gaming, as well as the Xbox and PlayStation consoles, D-Link said. The OLED display can show network statistics, connected devices, or other information. The DGL-4500 features four gigabit LAN ports, one gigabit WAN port and a USB port for Windows Connect Now, along with three external reverse SMA dual band antennas. An SPI firewall is included, and the router supports VPN passthrough and WPA/WPA-2 encryption.

    all of the gigabit routers that I have used have worked fine... mostly linksys and cisco... Since this is draft-N I would still prefer to wait until the final N version is out before upgrading your whole network.

    I might get a new router soon. All my comps will soon be 1000, so the router should be too :p.

    This one looks pretty good.

    Price is a bit high, but D-link makes some of the best routers out there. I could see myself getting this. Besides, the wife wont complain too much when I get it to coincide with her new laptop purchase.
