    I've got an Asus WL500g (Its an amazing router, capable of doing what the new Airport Extreme can do) and I can enable 'Afterburner' which will give me 125mbps 802.11g.

    Does anyone know if the new Airport cards can do 125mbps 802.11g?

    i doubt it.
    if you're talking about that buffalo router, i think you need extra stuff tomake it run at that speed.

    if you have the new iMac with 11n cards, i recommend the Belkin N1, $110, router, which has the 802.11n protocol, which has much better range and speed that 54mbps g protocol.
    is it faster than 125 mbps g protocol? not sure

    anyway, i've been using it and voila! it works exactly like its supposed to.
    unlike that awful linksys router i had.

    No its not a buffalo router, its an Asus WL500g with custom firmware.

    I'll have to do some more research I think.
