Maybe I am wrong.Since you are already familiar with Linksys, you can upgrade it to "Linksys Refurbished E3200-RM". Since it is refurbished, you can have it for half of the price. I own this refurbished model almost 2 months now. It works flawless so far. I switched it to this Cisco after my D-Link DIR-655 Xtreme N GIGABIT died on me. E3200 seems to work better than D-link across the board!

Ye, but why spend even $80 if he's got a working setup? OK, file transfer speeds would go up with a gigabit router/switch, but otherwise there will likely be no noticeable difference.
