When I heard D-Link's price of $49 for the DI-604, I'm sure I wasn't alone when I thought that it would be some feature-crippled, slow-as-a-dog loss-leader that only folks who didn't know better would buy. After spending some time with the 604, I'm glad to say that I couldn't have been more wrong...
