Yer they are pretty much EOL here as well, but you can still buy them, I picked this one up for less than 1/3 of retail and less than 1/2 what they are currently selling for plus got a free wifi cam by redemption which retails at $199 so not a bad deal

Thats a awesome deal too. Ya, not sure of the Rev change. Any changes seen going from A1 to next rev means there was a HW change. No idea though.  :-\

This model is meant to have 1.4ghz processor I think, the A1 had a 1ghz didn't it? Reading the spec for this model it says 1ghz in some places and 1.4 in other.... ???

Hardware change from A2 to A3:

1. Real panel wording changed from “Router/Extender" to “Router/AP", due to no full extender mode support from Broadcom.
2. Firmware is compatible with A1/A2, starting from v1.11.

Hardware change from A1 to A2:

1. BRCM internal silence drop in 4366 RF chipset from B1 to C0
2. Firmware backward compatible, starting from v1.11
3. FCC/CE Certification ID remain unchanged.
4. Complies with ErP Lot26: 2017


Rev A1 - A4 all use 1.4GHz CPU.
