I was browsing the latest issue of PC World this morning and came across an ad for a new wireless router that shows that at least one company is thinking about how to design a latest-generation wireless router.

New Buffalo Technology wireless routerThe ad shows Buffalo Technology's Wireless-N Nfiniti Dual-Band Gigabit Router, which is the first router that I know of that supports dual-band (11a/b/g) operation and has a built-in gigabit Ethernet switch.

Unfortunately, it also supports draft 802.11n, which puts it on my "no-buy" list; at least until the IEEE, Wi-Fi Alliance and chipmakers get the actual specs sorted out that the Alliance will certify draft 11n products to come March 2007.

But, kudos, Buffalo, for setting an example (dual-band, gigabit LAN) that other manufacturers should follow for their next round of wireless routers.
