I am liking the sound of the super beefy wifi of this one mentioned in the thread. Do you know if it is a significant boost in performance over the N16 or negligible?

I believe the N16 just has 150mbit wireless N, the other models will have higher speeds than that, providing you have the appropriate wireless cards in your computers.

The super beefy ones only really come into play once your throughput speeds go up.

For 150mbit internet connection the N16 is rampant overkill.... just depends on if you want faster wireless or not.

You'll want to read some reviews on some of the other newer routers because I think there were some that had some issues, which is the reason I went with the N16.
