bwhinnen said:I had used a D-Link DIR-655 for many years as the main wireless router in the house. I still use it as the primary router but now use an Airport Extreme for wireless.
The D-Link worked well, but here in Aust was only 2.4GHz and I could not get my hack laptop to connect at draft-n speeds at the time so bit the bullet and purchased an Extreme (I needed another g-bit switch anyway).
The D-Link has been pretty reliable, any issues were always corrected with a f/w update available. I've been running it for about 4 years now.
Huberer said:I use an Asus RT-N16 with TomatoUSB firmware. This router has two usb ports whereas one I use for my printer. You can also add an external HDD to the router and use as TimeMachine. But for that you have to do some modifications.
This router only supports 2,4 Ghz at 20/40 Mhz. For my 5GHz I use a Linksys WRT320N, as well with TomatoUSB, but I did also a mod and now this WRT320N is right now a Linksys E2000 router.
I can suggest these two routers (but only with TomatoUSB).
