Does anyone know what the difference between this model and the WRT600N would be? Both have N dual bands, gig switch ports, and storage link. The only noticeable difference I can see is that it uses linksys' new enclosure. Does anyone have one to confirm the chipset, ram size, and flash memory size?
The 610N is supposed to have dual independent radios. In other words, it should be able to use 802.11n to its full potential of 600Mbps when used with a dual radio client. I imagine it can also be used as a very fast P2P link.
Hope this will get supported soon as i need a fast link between my basement and my second floor..

I don't have any heating issues yet either. I just installed mine today. I can see it gets warmer than I would like. Especially since I intend to run it 24/7. As a precaution I elevated the unit slightly to allow for better heat dispersion on the bottom. I used four (4) circular foams found on CD/DVD spindles. I placed one under each corner then moved the router so that it sits on top of a fan attached to the top of my CPU case. In addition to elevation the foam maintains the routers resistance to sliding. The underlying fan should eliminate any heat issues that arise.
Now that you bring it up - normally it feels warm on the bottom underside of the router and fairly cool on the top, but when I reset it yesterday it felt pretty warm on top also. Any ideas how to keep it cool? My older Belkin N router used to run ridiculously hot and I was able to elevate the front of the router a bit but that never really seemed to help it run any cooler.. Has anyone else seen a similar issue with the WRT610N?

I love my WRT610N! I got it with the matching N adapter (WMP300N) from NewEgg for $193 after tax and free shipping. I was just curious if anyone has any experience using the 610N as their primary router. Also, can the WRT54GS receive on the 5.0ghz frequency? If it could it would be SO fast.
