I used a v1.1R for several months and it was kind of spotty. I couldn't get consistent 300mbps connections and I had to reboot it every once in a while. I also installed some heatsinks to improve cooling which seemed to help. I think the underlying problem is that dd-wrt support for Atheros-based routers is still not very robust. I replaced it with a Broadcom-based Asus RT-N12 which has been working great.
Mr research has told me TrendNet uses cheap parts and are not reliable in the long run, I believe this router has better hardware specs than the ASUS mentioned above (cpu), but for the price I just ordered the Asus RT-N12 that the poster above mentioned. I was going to take the chance on the trendnet since it has better hardware specs and is cheaper but wasn't aware newer versions can not use DD-RWT. For a $40 router I was told the ASUS can't be beat. It has a 300 MHz cpu, 32MB ram. Quality hardware is important also, not just the specs of it.
