Also looks pretty sleek if you ask me. Not a ton of experience with other routers but I have been super happy with the connection, wifi on computers and phones.
    which model?

    So that was the problem. She had an AT&T DSL modem (Westall) that was also hiding a router. The IP address conflicted with the Netgear wireless router.

    All better now.

    This guy knows whats up. The N16 is hands down the best wireless consumer level router out right now. It has the fastest processor and most RAM and ROM. Has great DD WRT and Tomato open source firmware support and even has 2 USB ports for any configuration of hard drives or printers/etc. It also has excellent range with its 3 antennas.

    Best part is that it is only $90 on amazon.

    You would have to be mental to buy any router besides this one.

    Perhaps... but I spent $15 and got a router that does everything I need it to since it is only running my Pre and that's it. "Mental" is in the eye of the beholder.

    Well everything is relative but if you need a N router with gigabit ports, the Asus one is a great deal with all the extra features it has.

    I know they are not very common outside DE but love my AVM 7270. Works perfect with the pre. AVM - DSL, ISDN, Wireless, VoIP Millions of functions (VPN, NAS, VoIP...), very good support, very stable.

    Most of those are incompetent people trying to use a real mans router and don't know how.

    EDIT: I should make it clear that the stock firmware is not very good, that is what most people who gave it negative reviews are using. If they used the Tomato firmware I think they would have a different experience. Asus basically holds your hand when installing an opensource firmware, theres no reason not to do it.

    The reviews I am reading point to issues with the wireless regarding speed and connectivity, using both stock custom firmware.

    If yours is working fine for you, that's great, but with 16% negative reviews I would say it's certainly a bit of a stretch to call someone mental for not buying one.
