To really get the full benefit of such a beast you have to buy wifi devices that can talk to it on it's own level. I bought a network card for my (similar) D-Link "Taipan" router...and have a 702mbps wifi connection (through two walls). Worth every penny to me, but there were a fair few pennies involved. In the same room my (new) HP laptop gets an 866mbps wifi connection. 



But even then it's still only a half duplex connection which is the major downfall of WiFi and why it's inherently unsuitable for many LAN applications such as intensive database lookups or gaming.

Off topic, but I've spent months doing and publishing evaluations of Merkur, Gillette, Schick, and Dorco razors. Everyone's different, but I found Merkur double edged by far the worst, and that quality generally matched price - other than a couple of stand-out exceptions.


During that I discovered that more blades means less pressure per blade, which can mean less irritation. Within reason of course, and quality is more important than blade count. The Dorco seven blade razor isn't as good as the Schick three blade razor.



I will have to beg to disagree with your individual research, given the large body of anecdote out there to the contrary. One point, you're not supposed to apply pressure using single blades, rather to make multiple passes (WTG, XTG, ATG). I *do* agree with you on the Merkur - Muhle is much nicer! However, as they say, everyone's face/skin/beard is different.


Anyway, see you over at Badger & Blade, where this is not only on-topic, but core business ;)
