Support exists for USB drives formatted to several file systems, including over the network, and users have remote access to HTTP and FTP sites. It's also DLNA compatible, allowing it to stream media to home theater devices as well as supporting gaming consoles like the PS3.

The WNDR3700 is priced at $190 in the US.
