I'm currently using the Netgear R6300 v2, with DD-WRT flashed on it - haven't had any issues with it.... I bought mine used on Amazon for about $40.... thumb.gif

Asus routers have been nothing but solid for me and have been the most reliable wireless routers I have used over the past 5 years. Can't go wrong with either of these:

Apologies for the delay there.... According to the list of supported devices, the R6400 is supported. thumb.gif

Basic install directions at the top, download link for the firmware at the bottom (though you have to create a free account to download)....

I can't really speak about the R6400's performance, as I haven't personally used it....

Both of the Asus routers can run DDWRT as well: https://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Asus_RT-AC66U

You don't run 3rd party firmware if stability or wireless performance is important to you.

I can't name a single wireless AC Box that performs better on DD-WRT/Tomato than Stock wireless wise.


Wireless N gear never had this problem.



Honestly Not sure what is wrong with your TP-Link, but Load DD-WRT or Tomato onto it and turn the wifi side off and just use it as a Wired Router. Get a Ubiquiti AP unit, and live the good life of having commercial grade hardware powering your Wireless Setup. You are not going to get this kind of reliability from Asus, Netgear, TP-Link, Linksys, D-Link, etc.
