Summary: For reference we have compared the WRT610N to the DIR-655 , DGL-4500 and most recently the TEW-672GR . All of these routers support 802.11n and GB wired Ethernet. A USB stick was used to connect a desktop to the WRT610N while a laptop was used to connect to the 802.11n network using the D-Link DWA-652 Xtreme N Notebook Adapter .
Pros: Excellent port forwarding / masking, Passes all firewall tests, Simultaneous dual-band wireless with separate configuration, Handy and simple NAS feature through USB port, Blistering fast wireless and wired network performance
Cons: QoS features are not as good as the competition, One of the more expensive consumer routers on the market
Summary: Though the WRT610N isn’t first to the Australian market with simultaneous dual-band operation, it’s definitely one of the fastest and most consistent at the moment. Setting it up can be slightly annoying, but these minor niggles are easy to ignore when the router performs this well.

Excerpt: Wireless routers with internal antennas have a much tidier appearance, and the Linksys WRT610N combines this with an unusually sleek outline. Instead of the usual plugpack, the WRT610N comes with an inline power pack with a short mains lead - and the review sample had a US mains plug! We’ll put that down to an oversight.
Excerpt: In recent months, we’ve seen router after router appear on our desks sprouting new technology. From dual-band and push-button security, to ‘gaming’ routers, draft n 2.0 and gigabit speed, the competition to be the most fully featured and most powerful router on the market is fierce indeed. Which brings us to the WRT610N. Linksys has scored two A-Listed routers in a row, the and the . The WRT610N promises even more than those two, and delivering is a tall order.
Conclusion: Teoretycznie WRT610N ma możliwości największe z całej testowanej w naszym laboratorium stawki, jednak pod względem wydajności napotkał lepszych od siebie. Wyłącznie on potrafi dokonać wyboru jednego z dwóch pasm do komunikowania się z klientem. Ta cecha niekoniecznie musi być uznana za zaletę. Dzisiaj wybór między zatłoczonym pasmem dwu- a wolnym pięciogigahercowym jest oczywisty.
Pros: Stylowa obudowa z ukrytymi antenami, Jednoczesna praca w obu pasmach, Najwyższy poziom zabezpieczeń
