all i'm gonna say is I LOVE that asus router... I've bought 3 of them since they came out. One of them Braineater bought from me. I have one for when I work in camp and another for home. The options on this router are amazing for the price... definitely worth every penny.

Best part... the USB support man. Makes it stupid easy to share movies to the network. Very fast wireless connect and it takes no time to setup.

Don't forget to load DD-WRT. I got a RT-N66U for $110ish through a Best Buy price match. It's a beast! Wayyyyy overkill.

I don't think anyone needs to install dd wrt... on an asus router when what it comes with is fine. If you were talkin about some other shitty cheap router like dlink or Linksys garbage then sure... install something that has some options.
Asus has more options than the average joe knows what to do with... why void a warranty when ya don't need to. If anything I'd take the asus options/interface over dd-wrt any day of the week.

This one... yes slightly over 100 bux but you get the USB ports... super handy.
