Pros:

Go to Trendnet's support page and download the open source firmware, that is the DD-WRT build for this router. No need to scavenge forums and read long tutorials. Just download that firmware file and upload it to your router. Boom DD-WRT the easy way. Both 2.4ghz and 5g has solid throughput. Mind you, not the fastest connection I ever seen, but at ~$85 for a dual band router and DD-WRT basically officially supported, I am not complaining.

Cons:

The router is powered by a 800mhz ARM A8, which to me seems to be overkilled. DD-WRT never report cpu loads higher than 25% and the CPU idles at 75C. Underload the temperature quickly climbs to ~80C and I suspect some thermal throttling on the Wlan interface. Unfortunately the under/overclocking does not work at all with the official dd-wrt, so I just cross my finger and hope the soc can sustain such high temperature.

Other Thoughts:

I don't have an AC receiver to test the throughput, but my older devices get above average speeds with both 2.4 and 5ghz N. The response time is also fairly quick, except occasional hiccup presumably related to thermal issues. I might crack the box open and add a bigger heat sink or attach a fan to the side. I guess a DD-WRT router is never meant for those who just want their router to perform out of the box. But for the tweakers, this is a good router to work with.
