    Nice looking router but I still don't see what makes it worth $250 bucks? How many wired ports does it have because I would expect no less than 8 - 10/100/1000

    its because its wireless AC, and relatively speaking thats still "cutting edge" in wireless terms. expect to pay a premium for it.

    My Asus Wireless AC router set me back $210, and its "only" 1300 mbps :p thats what you have to deal with as an early adopter

    Guessing this will run DD-WRT too ?

    Gonna have to replace my WRT160NL at some point, 100mbps LAN doesn't hack it these days

    Still the standard WAN +4. There are a few things driving the price I think. 1. AC is still pretty new tech. Of all the wifi devices in my house only my Samsung S4 is AC compatible. 2. Legend (haha), as this is finally a worthy replacement (probably) to the WRT54G. 3. look at the specs.. it's a beast of a home router, at least on paper.
    4. Because they can and they know it!

    I will wait for some consumer reviews so I won't be a day 1 adopter. I do plan on this being my next router though if it's as good as I think it will be.

    Good looking router. I used my WRT54G v6 all the way up until early this year when I got an Asus router.

    Finally. I was wondering how long it would take the NSA to work out all the zero day attacks on it.
