Updated – Buffalo has added an AP / bridge, and single-stream router and USB adapter to its line of 802.11n wireless products.

The WLAE-AG300N Nfiniti Wireless-N Dual Band Ethernet Converter, Access Point and Bridge (pictured) is a single radio dual-band AP / bridge with two switched 10/100 LAN ports. It can be configured as an access point, infrastructure-based bridge (no WDS required) or WDS-based wireless repeater

The WCR-GN Wireless N150 Router & Access Point is a single-stream N router supporting a maximum link rate of 150 Mbps. The single band router has a four-port 10/100 switch and supports WDS bridging / repeating, and Buffalo’s AOSS and industry-standard Wi-Fi Protected setup for wireless security.

The WLI-UC-GNM Wireless N150 Compact USB 2.0 Adapter is a tiny (0.25") USB single-stream N adapter supporting up to 150 Mbps link rates in the 2.4 GHz band.

The WLAE-AG300N, WCR-GN and WLI-UC-GNM will be available later this month at estimated street prices of $74.99, $39.99 and $39.99 respectively.
