    My Linksys E4200 V1 broke down after 14 months of use. I wouldn't recommend it. (tho my E3000 and 610N still work fine) Go for the Asus... (Trendnet or Netgear would be my second choice)

    Just get a wireless router of your preference speed and upgrade the antennas

    Anything with Wireless-N, movable antennae, and capable of running DD-WRT. Something that offers external anennas is very helpful.

    I've installed the D-Link Dir-655 in half a dozen homes and have never had one come back. I use one in my own home as well. I've had Ruko, Ooma, and half a dozen pc's running through it for the last year without a hitch.

    I did install the unit in one home that is 'very' long and they're only get 3-4 bars in the back bedrooms, so if anyone has good ideas on some better antennas that are compatible, I'm a willing listener.

    The Dir-655 is not dual band though...if I'm recalling correctly. Refurbs are 44.99 and the regular units are on sale at the Egg for 59.99.

    Best,

    My first choice too - My DIR-655 never let me down and has one of the best signal range in that class

    most NETGEARs will run DDWRT and mine has been really good with good range... I recommend them.

    i will check the D-link DIR-655.he does have a tp-link router which covers his home just fine but its the basement that doesn't get a good coverage usually between 1-2 bars max and it always disconnects.

    brandonwh64 what brand of antenna do you recommend getting.
