 I'm still not convinced that your existing unit doesn't have 802.11n support anyway, finding anything in the god-awful menu structure on the Thomsons is non-trivial though.

Ok, I've checked that there is a mode 802.11b/g/n. The difference from my Dir-615 is that in addition to the mix mode it has 'n-only' mode. And it seems like in this mode you can have maximum speed. The N-only mode is not present in the Thompson's settings. As well, it has only one antenna. 
As well, it takes 10-15 seconds just to get the first page from the thomson web console loaded. Why it's so slow?

What are you doing that needs 'N' only anyway? Or is it just something you want because it's there? G is more than fast enough for internet. If you are doing big file transfers/HD streaming, you should be either using wired connections or decent (not Telecom Freebie - which IMO is perfectly fine for 99% of users) gear.
