I love the Linksys WRT54GL router: nice and simple, boostable and configurable (gee I sound like I'm from Bulls...) with dd-wrt and other firmware. Good rock solid box.

So, when a customer asks me about an n-class alternative, I dont really have an answer which I know is going to be as reliable a solution.

Has anyone had commercial experience in something which is as reliable? And a suitable USB adapter? I've been using the Edimax ones with the detachable antenna (7318-Usg), and have behaved flawlessly (in many sites).

Would be nice to be able to offer a complete n-class solution, so if you've got any suggestions, please let me know :)

802.11n is premature.  The standard is not ready to go yet.   Give it another year and then it might be worth thinking about.    For some individual applications it might be worthwhile in draft form.   We [Zenbu] use the WRT54GL and as you say, they are solid [much better than we expected from initial Linksy comments about expected failure rates].  

New Zealand's slow cyberspace can't benefit much from 802.11n, though there is increasing fibre around the place [still at extortionate prices].    The bottleneck is in the ADSL, not the wireless link.
