Wireless N Router with 4+ Gigabit ports?

What it says on the tin. Is it a combo item reasonably priced & works well or would I be better off getting a gigabit router + a wireless router?

How's this thing?

Or should i stick to linksys?

My 7 year old SMC is dying.

Thanks in advance!

I like TP-Link. I find them cheap and solid. I've got a dsl modem and router from them and both are holding up fine.
+1 for TP-Link. Cheap but work better.

I'm using this one, I think it's a fantastic Router.

I got Dual Band because I have a ton of wireless devices connected to it, some games, some don't.

And I love the Mac Address Filter security.
If the TP-Link has it, fantastic, great buy.

But I've only seen it in Linksys models so far.

Ah, NCIX is local for me, so I'm use to shopping & checking everything there.
But for those that also prefer to shop from NCIX, they price match. Unsure if they would with Bewawa, but it's always worth a try.

I have TP Link DSL modem and I like it well enough.

I googled the mac address security thing and came up with unfavourable results:

Doesn't seem to sell me on the Linksys for that reason alone. Anything else that would make hte linksys mentioned better than the tp-link?

Edit: nevermind, I ordered it from NCIX already. found an even cheaper place (A-Power) through **********:

Price matched, but subject to approval. I've a gift card from when I built my computer last summer so I wanted to use that at ncix.

Thanks for your help!
