Pretty Decent Router

Pros: Widely supportted by open source router projects. Of note supportted by both OpenWRT and DebWRT. External antennas allow for more focused coverage, better antennas or potential to have antennas located away from router.

Cons: No support for 802.11a (no 5GHz radio). These are now an "older" generation of router, so very high speed Internet connections may be able to overwhelm these.

Other Thoughts: Died after 3 years. First started showing DMA errors and then more recently died.

Long Lasting Router!

Pros: I bought this router in 2010 for about 70 bones new. First thing I did was put Tomato Shibby on it to replace the stock firmware. It was rock solid for a 7.5 year period. It just recently started having an issue. They only thing I noticed that was giving me trouble was that my download speeds seemed to be capped at around 3 Mbps. After some trouble shooting I discovered that the only left to look at was the router. So once I put in a different router (with Tomato Shibby of course) my speeds returned to normal. I have a cheaper model router at the moment since I now use separate AP's for WiFi and a 24 port switch for the rest of my small network. I highly recommend this router to anyone who is considering it but ditch the stock firmware.

Cons: The only downside I can think of is not have 5Ghz. If your internet connection speed is less than 100Mbps then you really aren't missing much with only using 2.4Ghz. Besides 2.4Ghz broadcasts further than 5Ghz anyway.

DD_WRT performance router

Pros: Been running this for 8 years without problems. Its a very powerful router. My dad has been using this for years with no problems except when he forgets the password (I have it written down now). I flashed dd-wrt onto this shortly after purchase and it is super stable and very powerful. I've never tried mounting a hard drive to the usb port and can't speak to that feature.

Cons: none

Great router and uses DD-WRT firmware also

Pros: 1- Works as advertised
2- Easy to configure, plenty of options for most users
3- It uses DD-WRT firmware and is pretty sturdy about modding it.

Cons: 1- The router reset button (the recessed one on the back panel) is a joke. Come on Asus, you need to make that kind of button or switch EASY to get to. Have it protrude past the panel face by a few millimeters so you can push it with your finger EASILY. Right now you have to use a screwdriver, pen, paperclip or something narrow to press it. This is ridiculous. I understand you don't want people pushing it accidentally, but if it's CLEARLY LABELED AS RESET, I think most people will avoid it. Give consumers a little credit for having some brains, please.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend, yes. CHANGE THE FREAKING RESET BUTTON is my only real suggestion.

Great general purpose router

Pros: Had a very easy to use interface and all of the advanced features that I love to play around with as a network analyst.

Cons: The wireless would perform poorly at times

Other Thoughts: I would overall recommend the product still, as it is a great product for the amount you pay.
