The E3000 has four 10/100/1000 gigabit ports and simultaneous dual band (2.4GHz/5GHz) operation. According to the manufacturer, the E3000 also contains six internal antennae which, it claims, extends the wireless coverage area. A USB port on the back can be attached to a USB 2.0 hard drive. As with all similarly equipped routers, this gives you a quasi-network attached storage (NAS) setup without the added expense of a true NAS device. Price: $149.
