    I just purchased and received my first ever Wireless Access Point (AP). I overlooked one of the specifications when I ordered the AP. The AP has two (2) 10/100 LAN ports and the stated speed of the Wireless N Data Transfer Rate is up to 300 Mbps. I only plan to use the AP to access the Web with my new Android Tablet. I keep looking at the 10/100 LAN speed and see it as a 'possible' bottleneck. My ISP maximum Data Transfer Rate is 25 Mbps.

    The 10/100 LAN connections should not become a bottleneck, but it would be nice if the LAN port(s) were Gigabit.

    TheKid7,

    GigaBit networking is great for your wired computer to computer network. But your 100 Mbps LAN is probably four times as "fast" as your wireless N devices are able to receive data from the internet.

    Thank you.

    The rest of my Home Network is Gigabit. The LAN ports and WAN port of my 'Wired' Router are Gigabit.
