No problem leave it with me and I will get answers for next week for you, I will work on the price point with Ruckus as I apprecite this is for the home.
If others are keen then please let me know either via this thread or alternativly email@example.com, this will help with the price conversation with Ruckus.

Ok so the options available from Ruckus are really only the 7300 range of access points, they have not got an interest in producing home market ap's for many reasons which relate mainly to detracting from what they do well which is looking after the business market.
Price support would only really be down to us as resellers unless the numbers are large enough.
Sorry not the answer I had hoped but at least honest and a quick reply.
email me directly firstname.lastname@example.org if you need a price for a 7300 ap and I will see what I can do, although I think this will be a little to pricey still for the home.

Thanks for at least looking in to it Mark, probably out of my price range and justifyability factor with the wife! Thanks anyway.

Not a problem and your welcome
Happy New Year to you.

Hi Mark, can you pm me with the price for the 7300 range as I may be interestsed in looking at one as a solution at home.

That's an interesting comparison, although I suppose ToolBoy is getting good wireless speeds because he lives in the middle of nowhere? In the second set of benchmarks when the WPA2 encryption is turned on, the difference isn't as large between the two, although the Airport Extreme still wins. I wonder what it would be like in an area where all of your neighbours are using 802.11g/n BTHomeHubs? For me, the AE is far too limited in terms of features - no jumbo frame support for the gigabit ethernet ports, no QOS, no web interface (among other things) and the forced reboot after every single change to the settings would drive me crazy.

Once someone has gained access to your network, it's quite scary what they can do using Backtrack and Armitage.

1. Does Jumbo Frames make a big difference when connected via gigabit - I presume it does judging by the fact you made the comment.

2. No Web Interface - Both on the Mac and PC you have to use the software / utility to configure it which is a bit of a shame
3. QOS - From reading around the AEBS does not give priority to any traffic although if you go into the advanced options there are tweaks / work arounds ( from what I have read at least )
Would be good if they could add QOS, Jumbo Frame Support and a Web GUI for those that are a bit geekier then a home user.

Using jumbo frames did help to improve file transfers speeds when I used to have a ReadyNAS. However, this was five years ago and things have probably changed a lot since then? I think I'll have to run some benchmarks to see if they are still worth using at home.
It's good to know about the workarounds for the QOS. It would be great if Apple included a secret advanced mode which gave you a lot more control like the open-source router firmwares do e.g. Tomato and DD-WRT.

Will have to have a google around to find the comments posted - think they were from the question / answer section on the AEBS page
