    Looking for a decent wifi router with a good number of gigabit ports

    Not sure if this is the right forum to be posting this, but just wanted to do a quick survey of the community and gather any advice/tips.

    I'm basically planning to upgrade an old WRT54GL linux router I have and go to something with wireless N. Next to my existing router I also have a five port gigabit switch.

    I figure I could kill two birds with one stone and get a single device with wireless N and a decent number of gigabit ethernet ports (unfortunately the norm seems to be 4...but I could probably live with 8)

    So far I've only been able to find one router on amazon that somewhat fits the bill.

    Any advice?

    well don't limit yourself if you have a switch that's for sure. i would suggest something with dd-wrt personally.
    Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.

    Agreed and if you need more ports a decent switch is cheap enough...
