I'd say you're absolutely correct.  Still, that gives you 500mbps  
transfer speed. I'm not really claiming it will even do that, I'm sure  
there's processor overhead and whatnot, but I suspect that one could do  
some number > than 100 mbps.

I can believe that.  So if we assume these scale linearly, then a router  
advertising 1000 mbps should, theoretically, be able to transfer from pc  
to pc at 200 mbps which would be double the ethernet port.

Of that I have no doubt. There are many factors that affect wireless  
transmissions, but nevertheless my only point was that a router with a  
100 mbps port can still transfer data faster than 100mbps. Yeah, it  
would make a whole hell of a lot more sense to have a 1000mbps ethernet  
port, but it's not an isolated case.

Ubiquiti pulled that crap with nearly every M series device they ever  
sold (with a few exceptions).  Using a 40MHz signal, one could get a  
300mbps connection, the system was full duplex which gives you a 150  
mbps connection in both directions.  But since the radios had to connect  
to the rest of the network with the ethernet port, the 100mbps port was  
a significant bottleneck.

Agreed

That would be useless.

Being without ADSL would be OK though.
