So I just upgraded my internet (12 mbps to 18 mbps) for an extra $5 a month and I'm in the middle of routing Cat 6E through my house. I'm going to be ordering a new router today or tomorrow and need help picking the best one. I want something reliable that will run Tomato or DD-WRT rock solid, give me good ethernet speeds, and handle QOS without slowing down. Dual band isn't important to me as I'll only be using 2.4 GHz. Here's what I'm looking at, but I'm open to suggestions.
Netgear WNDR3700 - $90 (with free $10 promotional card)
Asus RT-N16 - $82 ($72 after rebate)
TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND - $45 (after promotional code)
What are your guys opinions on these routers? Thanks! :)
Also, I know the Asus RT-N16 has a built in print server, does the Netgear WNDR3700 support one as well (either stock or after flashing custom firmware)? :o
