i just got the asus 56u awhile back and its been solid for me. asus seems to keep the firmware coming to. i also love the user interface, its pretty much self explanitory. heck..just look at the reviews.they also come with the software to hook up an hdd to them.

I'm going to jump in here too...I need a new router and I'm not sure what to get.

I connect my gaming pc and good tv for streaming movies with an ethernet cable so I don't need wireless for that...I do use a laptop and my wife has an iphone and ipad that she uses on the main floor of the house (router goes in the basement)...currently have a belkin that we have had for about 2 years and it keeps going on/off.

Anyway, that is what I need it for and my budget would be $100, give or take.

Do I need bual band? Is the Asus Black Diamond really that great for a user like me? What should I get?

Thanks. (sorry for hijack)

I got an Asus 56U and it was garbage. The LAN port did not work so every time I booted my system up I had to unplug it from my computer or my wall or from the router..anywhere where the line was going to in order to temporally disconnect the line and connect it back. Windows kept saying that a Ethernet cable was unplugged, but it wasn't and when I plugged it back it worked..every time.

Then, within 2 weeks I tried to upgrade the firmware and it stopped in the middle and would not work. I tried to put it in rescue mode and everything and it never worked at all. I had the router less than a month and I had to send it back.
Ahh!

The house is 5700sq-ft and the main router is at the top floor on the side of the house, while my home theater is in the basement, so speeds are currently "acceptable", but I would think that using the Asus as primary and the WRT300N as a wireless bridge, and then moving the 54G's further to the corners of the house would result in far faster speeds, by having a 150MBs minimum connection speed (54G's are used mostly for guests, and all home devices can be set to select which router to grab from), yes?
I really want to be able to better use XBL and stream 1080p video without buffering constantly...

+1 for N66u, I decided to spend a bit more for a good router and never looked back. This is the router of choice for video streaming. Make sure to download the latest firmware from the Asus website (unless you plan to flash to tomato, I don't think DD-WRT is very good), the inbuilt updater didn't update to latest version for me.

Its not their new router btw, its now a generation old. The new one is ac66u
