ASUS RT-N66U Dual-Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router, DD-WRT Open Source support, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Top of the line hardware. Signal penetration through several walls with strong signal. I can detect a usable signal from this router nearly 100 yards away through a window down at the end of our road. That's just a WOW factor for me as I came from an old WRT54GV2.
Custom Firmware Support! I run tomato right now on this beast and I couldn't be happier.

Recovery mode! I think all routers should have this. You can brick the router of course, but it takes a lot to make it completely useless. Most bricks can be fixed by simply entering recovery mode and clearing nvram/installing alternate firmware.

Cons: 32kb nvram, this is a huge con for me and would definitely lose an egg if Asus hadn't promised to increase it by the end of this month. This means not enough room for all the settings needed to survive a reboot. I've ran out of nvram once already on Asus's firmware and decided to move to tomato so that I can use most of what I need out of this router. I need room to grow Asus!!

Other Thoughts: I'm having my doubts about Asus releasing a fix for the nvram by the end of the month, but hopefully it will be soon. Certainly there are ways to bypass nvram and store settings some where else, but for those of us with little experience writing/running scripts, we have no choice but to wait.

This router is by far the best choice I could of made. The latest firmware as of this moment is 112, most people should use 108 as it is more stable. Right now I'm using a test build of Tomato from Shibby. So if you plan to use custom firmware, this in my opinion is the best choice. It runs very stable, has loads of features and has the latest wireless drivers.

I also used a custom build of Asus's firmware made by a guy called Merlin. It's very stable and has some added features that are a nice alternative to default firmware. You can upgrade his build strait from the asus UI without going into recovery mode. Easy for those of you who don't want to risk anything else.
