Because they are refurbs?
That's the rev. 1 of the AEBS not the newest one with gigabit ethernet.
Eraserhead- The refurbs are different from clearance items.
Peace- ahhhhh... ok ... Is the only difference between rev 1 and 2 the gigabit ethernet? So if ur purely using wireless, it doesn't matter, right?
Other than the gigabit ethernet there's no difference that I know of.At least none that couldn't be resolved with a firmware update on the older model.
Sorry, they are usually in the same part of the site , I didn't check, and it came back to bite me .
No worries Eraserhead
IIRC, they have been shown to be different Broadcom chipsets. Other than the gigabit interface, I don't know how else the chipsets differ but they are different.
Apparently the network backplane hardware on Rev 1 is limited to 100 Mbps, so even if you have good enough conditions to be able to establish a 100+ Mbps real-throughput wireless connection, the router won't be able to handle it. Probably not a big deal in the near term or for most people who don't have gigabit anyway.
If I have a cable modem hooked into the router...I want to do wireless printing and hard drive... will rev 1 or 2 make a difference?
when I can get real-throughput of 100Mbps via wireless that's when I'll buy a new one.
