I would love to find a single device that provides:
Wireless Access Point
Gigabit Router
Easy VPN access - preferrably web based like the SSL VPN Client

Anyone know of such a device?

Given that standalone gigabit routers are cheap, as are 802.11g and draft-N
routers, why bother jamming them into one box? It's a simple matter to use
a short ethernet cable from one to the other to bridge their switches
together. That and you get the added bonus of putting heavy gigE traffic
devices onto their own switch and not have it intrude on the rest of the
network. I did this with my Media Center PC, 2 Tivos (using 100baseT of
course) and a fileserver and it GREATLY improved the Tivo-to-PC transfer
times.

I could see a few situations where it might see desirable, but not enough to
justify the added cost and likely decrease in flexibility.

I would agree with Bill here.

Beside, when it comes time to replace a certain portion you can retain
the other bits that are still functioning.

If you're good with 10/100BaseT rather than GigE, and don't mind the price tags, our
851W/871W/1811W line of Integrated Service Routers should meet the need ...

I agree - I think an 851W is in my future...
