Recommend me a router for BT Infinity

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I'm looking to replace my BT Homehub as it's something I should have done a long time ago. I've got a few requirements but obviously the less I can spend the better. One thing to note is that the hub connects to the VDSL modem via a WAN port and I will be keeping the modem, so I only need a standalone router. I don't know if it being VDSL makes a difference?

I'd like:
  • Wireless N (preferably N300)
  • Gigabit ethernet ports
  • DD-WRT compatible

Ideally I'd like to not spend too much either.

Thanks in advance

Not sure what retailers ya got since i'm Canadian but the EA2700 is pretty good.
-Supports Linksys App Enabled management through your smartphone.
-Has Gigabit Ports
-Has Dual Band so 300mbps on 2.4 and 300mbps on 5GHZ
-Supports DD-WRT and Tomato MEGA builds
-Can support alot of concurrent connections for P2P or connection oriented applications.

I'm using two E900's in my network for my Home and Apartment and it's a rock solid. Both of them running shibby's Tomato builds MEGA but no USB support on the E900.
