Surprisingly this wireless router offers something that the N900 doesn’t: the ReadyNAS Cloud feature that enables access to data stored on a connected USB external hard drive via the Internet


If you are not the techy kind and don’t want to bother with customizing, the N600 comes preconfigured with a network’s name and its encryption key printed on a label on its side and all you have to do is plug the router into an Internet connection, such as a cable modem, turn it on, and you’re good to go.

This wireless router retails between $80 to $217 in retail shops and is available at most popular gadgets shops like Harvey Norman, Bing lee , Dick smith,  etc

If you lucky you might find one at your local ebay or Gumtree website
