Interestingly, both routers are 2T2R (2 Transmit, 2 Receive) designs using Broadcom's Intensi-fi chipset with very similar designs. But the WRT160N is about $20 more than the 150N, which gets you a stylish new black case, internal antennas and the latest version of Linskys EasyLink Advisor.

Of course, Linksys isn't the only game in town for entry-level draft 802.11n routers. You can also pick up D-Link's DIR-615 (2T2R Atheros xSPAN-based) for around $50 [see prices].

There is also the Trendnet TEW-632BRP. It also uses a 2T2R Atheros xSPAN design, but with an Atheros processor, vs. the Ubicom processor used by the DIR-615. The TEW-632BRP is currently running closer to $70, but has a $20 rebate [see prices].
