If you've upgraded to the Rev. 1 router how are you liking it over the old one that you had? Wired speeds aside are you getting more or less wireless speeds or not much difference? This of course applies if your wireless cards can handle the higher speeds.

Range any better?
Looking for feedback as I'm still deciding if I want to upgrade my Westell 7100 to the Rev. 1 because I'd have to upgrade my pc's network card as well.

I that case then cheaper and more likely better to just purchase your own router/wap and and it to the internal network.

I you don't have tv as part of your package then could request to change to ethernet connection from ont and just replace the westell with your own router.
