    Looks like an upgrade of a WL-500W.
    - same old case
    + lots of RAM
    + fast cpu
    + GigaBit LAN


    Questions, if anyone can answer:
    1) Does this router support 5GHz N wireless?
    2) Can it transmitt on two wireless channels concurrently ie like WRT610N?
    3) Does it have a JTAG port? Omission would be disappointing!!!
    4) Are the aerials detachable?

    1. Yes.
    2. Yes.

    Simultaneous dual-band operation provides data rates of up to 300 Mbps in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands
    Worldwide DFS certification to provide 27 channels in the 5 GHz band

    3. Yes.
    4. Yes.

    OH YES!
    me like this thing a lot!

    I mean... finally PROPER draft N wireless and a heatsink on the CPU so it doesn't need to be underclocked
    the additional ram is great as well...
    I bet they made it especially for us

    I think however that they only used a faster cpu to support better dataflow from the wlan card, since the 300mhz cpu in the wl-500w is a bottleneck now and then.

    I might be buying this thing, even without oleg support (so far).

    Thanks asus for listening to the real fans for a time

    It's currently selling in China for Y1700, which is <USD280, although I suppose the markup will be higher outside the PRC.

    By the time I retire my WL-500W the price will be much lower I hope.

    The biggest advantage is the inclusion of a JTAG port.
    Gigbit LAN and 5GHz WLAN is also bout time.

    280$... that is like 100 euro right

    ah well.. after the first 2 months the price usually also makes a hughe drop
    for now I guess the price will be around the 200 euro, the same price the wl-500w kicked off... and now it's like 90 euro or something

    A couple of months to get it available, 2-3 months to get a lower price and some unpredictable time to get it working with *wrt/some custom firmware...
    Sad but true

    Well I'm not sure if it'll take that mutch time...
    I mean the architecture is the same so it will be placing some pre-compiled drivers in the source, maybe a different cross-compiler, edit a few scripts and ur done...
