story imagePhoronix reports that Linksys is finally shipping its successor to the highly popular WRT54G wifi router. The original spawned a number of open source router projects, including DD-WRT , which partially shares its name. Features of the new model:
  • Wireless-N & AC (2.4 & 5 GHz)
  • 1.2 GHz dual-core ARM processor
  • 128MB of flash memory
  • 256MB of DDR3 RAM
  • 4 exchangeable external antennas
  • 1 gigabit ethernet port + 4 gigabit ethernet switch
  • 1 USB 3.0
  • 1 eSATA/USB 2.0 (somehow sharing the same port)
Although the specifications and commitment to open source are welcome, the retail cost of $250-$280 may turn some away.

That's nice and all, but $400 is pretty nuts. Having just gotten one of these for %60, I don't feel like I've missed out.
