I'm looking for a wireless n access point for a small office, about 9 people. I've been looking around, and it seems all the n series access points or routers are just terrible. Originally I was looking at a Cisco / Linksys WAP4410N, but the reviews are terrible. They are similarly terrible for almost anything else. I'm willing to pay good money for a solution, but I don't even see one.

I've been looking at some 3com devices, does anyone have any experience with them?

I've toyed with the idea of building my own out of a PC, or using DD-WRT, but the bossman won't allow it. I need something working "out of the box".

Wireless G is out of the question, so is wired networking.

I myself was searching for n router, but as at our office we have also G clients, then the pricey NETGEAR WNDR3700 router was way to go for us, because it is a simultaneous dual band router that performs very well with both N and G clients.

If you only need/have N clients, you may probably go with the other Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH. At least i couldn't find anywhere that it could do dual band (G and N clients)
