You say it would downgrade to an access point. What does Cisco have that would be a better (maybe less expensive) option that would have the 1GB ports and still be able to distribute their wireless N speeds? I contacted Cisco chat and t looking for an access point/bridge and they only threw out the E4200. I was thinking they were just trying to sell the most expensive item they have.

They have wireless-N bridges (up to 300mbps), but no gigabit ports and they don't have access point functionality.
You won't need gigabit ports with those kinds of bridges because their speeds most likely won't come near 100mbps.
