Hi all,

as per http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=65&topicid=59836

"I read an old (locked) thread saying a Wireless N gateway with VOIP was hopefully on its way. Is there any upday on these?"

There was a mention of them arriving around the 15th June. The reason I'm asking, I have a friend who was using Paradise dial up to get access the the internet on a plan that was being withdrawn. They want to move to Fusion, and, they may be better with the latest hardware available.

Those prices are not the final price. I am told there will be another distributor for those devices and prices will be lower than current retail.

Also note this device has a USB slot on the side for use with 3G USB modems - I know for sure the Sierra Wireless Compass 885U and the Telecom T Stick both work with this router out of the box, for increased connectivity and fallback options.

These devices are very cool. I also have one here for testing and they offer some brilliant features that don't typically exist on many low end routers/modems.

As well as the 3G backup they also support multiple SSID's and you can seperate traffic on individual VLAN's An example of this is a SSID for voice and one for data if you want to run WiFi phones. Setting this up is also very straight forward.

Assuming these don't suffer from some of the poor firmware issues that affected some Linksys devices in the past (all VoIP equipment now carries Cisco branding) these could end up being an exceptionally good device for home users, particularly as we move towards a VoIP world.

Not far away for en mass..... Just a little longer.

There are some pricey units around but except sub $300 hopefully.

I have had them for a while now and nice units (still finallizing some code fixes with cisco), hopefully the Supreme Bean and SBiddle would leave some thoughts, when they have had a play.
