I just ordered the Asus RT-N16, so thank you both for your help on this!

Now hoping that putting DD-WRT will go fine, as I've never done this before eek.gif
I found some instructions for this router here, hoping that's all I need to do and don't break/brick this new router!

But if you have any additional help / tips with putting DD-WRT on this router, they're more then welcome!

Not unless you lose your power you should be good to go. Just follow the instructions and you'll be fine.
I realize you have already ordered your router and a fine one at that as others have stated but if that for some reason you change your mind or return it the netgear 3500L is also flashable. I have it running 3 solid months now without a drop or disconnect. Just some food for thought.

Follow the instructions is the biggest things. As long as you are patient and follow the instructions you wont brick the router. Where the directions tell you to wait... wait.

Also for soft bricking your router, there is ways to flash the stock rom on it using tftp server.

This morning my router came in...
I did not even bother to look into the stock firmware (as many suggested not to do, to save your eye-sight? LOL), and upgraded the firmware to DD-WRT.
It went all super smooth!

THANK YOU ALL for all your help and suggestions!
