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...
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: The dual-band Linksys WRT610N doesn’t come cheap but this is an advanced-spec router, with USB storage and great performance. The dual-band feature is most useful for those with a mixture of 2.4 and 5GHz clients.
Linksys N Ultra Rangeplus Simultaneous Dual-N Band Wireless Router WRT610N

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!
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.
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.
Pros: Stylowa obudowa z ukrytymi antenami, Jednoczesna praca w obu pasmach, Najwyższy poziom zabezpieczeń
