    I'm interested in reading a review... hopefully something that tests the actual wireless performance and simultaneous WAN connections.

    I don't have an official review for you, but I have worked with a lot of router products, LinkSys, NetGear, DLink, SonicWall, Cisco, and the Airport Extreme is an amazing product. What you have come and would expect from Apple high quality products that are easy to use, but if you want, have to power to really configure/tweak the crap out of them.

    Nice Features
    Static IP Assigns via Mac
    Backup The Entire Config/Settings
    Run Both 802.11a/n + 802.11 b/g/n simultaneously
    Open Ports For Certain IPS
    Over WAN Config

    Would Like To See/Missing
    Firewall SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection)

    I'm concerned how it will handle lots of simultaneous open IP connections for bit-torrent traffic.

    I have a super fast cable connection, according to http://www.speedtest.net, I get:

    Download: 10mbps
    Upload: 5mpbs

    And I have no problems.

    Does it support MAC address filtering for wireless access?
