Buffalo NFINITI Giga

Buffalo today introduced the NFINITI Giga, a new wireless router that adds a four-port gigabit Ethernet switch to the draft 802.11n Wi-Fi access revealed earlier this year. The 1,000Mbps wired connection allows systems physically attached to the router to send or receive data as quickly as nearby wireless devices can process it. Buffalo promises that the 802.11n at the heart of the router is quick in real-world instances: while the closest devices manage 80Mbps, even those at the opposite side of an obstacle-laden building manage 32Mbps, the company says.

Security is bolstered by a built-in firewall, and the switch is heavily optimized for faster transfers in frequently hardware-limited FTP and PPPoE connections. The NFINITI Giga sells in Japan today for $250 and should be available in the US soon.
