Upgraded home network

Was reading extremetech or cnet and found an article on wireless router. Decided to pick up Netgear WNDR4500. Man this thing is fast!

I have four computers, 2 desktops and 2 laptops. I had Trendnet TEW-652BRP for about a year. It's supposed to be wireless-n, but the speed just wasn't doing it. Also I recently found out it's only a 10/100 ethernet, and NOT a gigabit ethernet.

Performance:

Transferring file from desktop to desktop went from 10MB/s to 70MB/s.
Transferring file from desktop to laptop went from 1MB/s to 15MB/s.
Stream 1080p movies from desktop to laptop flawlessly.
Wireless, speedtest at speedtest.net went from 6mbps to 20mbps.

WOW! This is the best purchase I've ever made. It was $179 minus 20% discount (1 time coupon used) from newegg. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...netgear%204500

If you have network at home I would highly recommend this product.
