Router Upgrade Suggestions
 
So I have a Linksys WRT610N dual band router and I have someone dying to buy it off me. So now its a great time for me to upgrade, but whats the best router these days?

I honestly don't think there's a much better router out there than what you have right now. At least on a consumer level, if you really feel the upgrade addiction tingling then I guess you could either make a routerbox or get a pricey enterprise level router.

Look up some of the routerboard/Mikrotik routers. They are linux based, commercial level routers but at a fraction of the price.

Sure but the configuration is not as straight forward as it is with normal consumer stuff like D-Link or whatever else.
Without mentioning if you start to play around with openwrt or even routeros a bit more deeply for config and scripts.

Anybody out there found a decent wireless N simultaneous dual band (so it can run both G and N without defaulting to G for all devices) with Giga ports? That's my next step, but I'm not sure they're out there at an affordable price.
