Just checked the Apple Store and the latest Airport Express does do ac standard WiFi. The limited number of GigE ports (3) is more of an issue for my entertainment hub (AV Rx, Blu-Ray, TiVo, TV & Apple TV) which is remote from my fibre ONT and router.

i dont know where you are reading it from

http://goo.gl/w3oLOr
has dual band but only wifi N

i thought it was pretty clear
Simultaneous dual-band 802.11n. AirPort Express lets Wi-Fi-enabled devices connect to your network on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless bands. Which means every connected device automatically uses the best band available for the fastest possible performance.
and

Compatibility and security. AirPort Express is compatible with devices using the 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g and 802.11n specifications


and

Wireless Device Access

 

     

  • Any Wi-Fi-enabled device that uses the 802.11a/b/g/n specification


that was both on the NZ and US apple stores

seems like you are mixing the name up with Airport Extreme which is a completely different product

Those are AirPort Extreme specs I think.

Of course your right - I was refering to the Airport Extreme, the Express being the simple device with only one Eth port

Sorry just another question.
Im having a play with the HG630b's FTP and usb devices attached to the router.
Is it possible to stream from these devices? It seems like it only wants to download?
Is streaming dependant on the router?
Thanks

Will there be a noticable difference between say the HG659b and the RT-AC66U for example?


No. They are both just average residential routers. One looks prettier than the other.

Seriously, you haven't specified any requirements so any old residential router will be fine. People complaining about disconnections are probably just experiencing disconnections on wifi because the router is in their garage and they expect it to work 2 floors up. Just use whatever your ISP gives you, it will be fine. They (the ISP) will have done a decent amount testing and chances are it isn't a bad piece of kit.
