So apart from the N-support is the NetComm giving you anything that the 
WRT54G did not? Maybe that question is actually: why did they give it to 

Otherwise surely it's a no-brainer to stick with the added functionality 
of the old box, and keep the new one around as a spare and in case of 
niggling problems when their Hell|pDesk will want you to test using 
'guaranteed right' gear...
