Im kinda still searching but picked up a D-link dir826L at frys on an impulse for $45, dual band n600. Havent gamed on it yet, just set it up but its getting me my full 52Mbps download so thats a good start. Im just not sure if I should return it and get the $10 more expensive asus rt-n53 dual band n600. Cant find professional reviews on either of them...Well have 30days to make up my mind, if it games well Im likely gonna keep the d-link one.
