Good suggestions here guys all around....Thanks!

That Asus dual-band seems really interesting right now, and has two USB ports as well and the data storage speeds seem better than the Netgear I was thinking of. That screenshot 3.0Charlie def shows bandwidth used total...but right now, still leaning towards the Netgear a bit as it has some additional functionality for bandwidth usage. I'll have to read a bit further but right now, its between the dual band asus and the netgear.

Thanks again for the solid suggestions guys! Exactly what i was looking for.

Well, I went to Canada Computers unsure and I talked to one of the guys there and he had good things to say about both routers. No returns on either that he could see, and folks buying both seemed happy with them.

I ended up getting the Netgear, as it had slightly better bandwidth monitoring abilities out of the box. I bricked a router before with DD-WRT (pretty sure I did it right, but I suppose you can't rule out PEBKAC) and was not anxious to do it again right now.

I wouldn't go as far as to say it's overspecced.

Seems like WAN to LAN throughput would fail after 150mbit so the CPU could be a bit stronger.

The RAM and flash in the unit is definitely overkill though.
