It sounds like you'll likely be getting the Actiontec v1000h. There's a discussion of that router here. If you don't get that router, you'll be getting the D-Link DVA-G3810BN. There's a discussion of that router here.
From what the tech's write on here, it sounds like the Actiontec is being used nearly exclusively for new installs. This is a good thing, since the Actiontec does not have the wired/wireless bridging issues that the D-Link does. It's a bad thing, though, if you want to hook up a drive to the USB port on the router, since that works on the D-Link but does not on the Actiontec. (I'd trade the need for an extra router to get my wired/wireless bridging working properly for the lack of USB port functionality, but maybe that's just me.)
I don't have any spare ports on the router (printers, PC, etc), and I already have a 'full' 4-port splitter (xbox, digital tv, blue ray player, and sonos system). The sonos bridge has 2 ethernet ports. Maybe I can plug a NAS directly into it... that's what I wanted the drive for anyway. But I also want the rest of the network to access it as well. Not sure if this will work.
