Need a GREAT wireless N router - Page 2

post #11 of 18
The WNDR3700 looks like the safer bet.

The RT-N56U uses a Ralink CPU clocked @ 500mhz with 128mb of RAM while the WNDR3700 has an Atheros CPU clocked 2 680 but with half the RAM.

Most importantly though dd-wrt is already supported on the WNDR3700 and we probably won't see third party firmwares on a Ralink CPU.

As much as it pains me to say this..........

Apple Airport Extreme.

Ive used most of the router here and they all have strengths but I cant stand daily/weekly reboots. Half dumb mngment interfaces, and not being able to seperate a guest network from the primary network.

The Apple hasnt been rebooted in about 5 months and the one I setup at work supports 20 pp w/iphones/ipads/bberry/laptops; has a public unprotected network, WPA protected network , 2.4 & 5 Ghz simultaneous bands.........

I've used the WNDR3700 with tons of clients plus I use one myself. Not to mention, I have this thing in my basement and can sit in my friends backyard across the street from me and still get a decent signal from it.
This thing doesn't want to quit for anything.
Also QoS on the WNDR3700 is awesome.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. For now I picked up the WNDR3700 I'm still tweaking the signals, as well as the placement. I just hope this thing stays as stable as my WRT54GL. We'll see

I've stress tested the hell out of these in the past and not even a hint lag. It meets your budget and is probably one of the best I've worked with.
They released the WNDR4000. Same with the WNDR3700 Premium Edition and the ADSL Gateway (also known as modem/router).

I second the WNDR3700. Its the best router I have ever used.

I've never had to reboot a Linksys router.

Setting up virtual wireless networks with different security settings can be done on DD-WRT too. Spending $175-$200 for a router is ridiculous. You might as well build a computer and turn it into a router for that price.
