A press release posted on Buffalo's UK site says the company will start shipping the AirStation WZR-D1800H. This is a different model from the AirStation WZR-1750H (below) shown at this past January's CES.
The release says the WZR-D1800H will have Gigabit Ethernet WAN and four LAN ports, one 1.3 Gbps 802.11ac 5 GHz radio and one 450 Mbps 802.11bgn 2.4 GHz radio.

Sooner than I'd expected; hello, mandatory beamforming! smile.gif I'll post any updates from the Gadget Show (today to the 15th) that I can find.

Triple the speed, I can live with that. At least we will be breaking 100MB/s transfer speeds, then again I don't feel like everyone has fully moved over to N yet either.

Yeah, nice router, but yeah most people still use g/b-a. How much is this router going to set you back?

I would like to find a real replacement for wired LAN. The range of real world 802.11n has never been very good for me. I have a large house so I have a wireless router on each floor, I also have multiple gigabit switches . I only use wireless for my laptop and iPad, everything else is wired.

This is interesting, I'm sure they will start a bunch out draft-ac routers soon. I got refurbished 802.11n Netgear draft-n router for about $20 on NewEgg in 2009 and that's even a good price by today's standards. Now I just need some devices that will support the new standard....
