    The wireless N speeds would be faster for transfers between devices on the network. I've been thinking of getting one also, but cant justify it right now. My U-verse residential gateway suits most all of our needs.

    I have one with AT&T and I tell you the APE has great coverage and the stability is unbelievable!

    I have Uverse, too, but I just added a dual band TC. My video chats were all blocky, so I figured I'd try an n router to see if the constraint was in home and sure enough, now my video chats are clear over the same internet connection.

    Funny thing, though, I have the Uverse box inside a cabinet and had no range issues in my home, but when I put the TC in there, I could not get wireless 6 feet away. Moved the TC on top of the cabinet and now have better coverage throughout the house than the Uverse box.
