Digitaletc.com has Cisco Linksys E2000 Wireless N Dual Band (not simultaneous) 4-Port Gigabit Router DD-WRT/Tomato Compatible (refurbished)

for $59.99 - $28 with code SD-EXCL-32= $31.99 with free shipping.

This router is very similar to Linksys WRT320N (or WRT32XN) (lots of previous discussion here), however, this is an official E2000 model, supported by Cisco as such if you don't want to tinker with DD-WRT

WAN port is also Gigabit, so if you have a really really really fast drop which exceeds 100mbit bursts, you can use that (rare in home conditions, usually tops off at ~50 Mbps)

It has 8MB flash memory and 32MB RAM, so it's compatible with MEGA DD-WRT builds and can handle more connections than other routers simultaneously

Wireless N can run on either 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz band, but not both at once. Also supports wireless A (5GHz), B and G (both 2.4 GHz) for backwards compatibility

You can get the WRT610N (same thing as e3000) with simultaneous dual-band, gigabit, USB port, and DD-WRT compatible for $55 (refurb also).
this statement above is not necessarily true since most are saying that you get version1 in this above deal

Tomato USB for E2000 ONLY!!! :
1. Download E2000 Std (no USB support; for Linksys E2000 ONLY!) tomato-E2000-1.28.9054MIPSR2-beta-Std.rar
2. Login into Cisco web interface and flash the firmware.

last discussion - http://slickdeals.net/forums/showthread.php?t=2865339

or nip all the confusion in the bud if you are trying to dd-wrt right when you receive this in the mail here are the steps.

1 READ the Peacock Announcement Carefully! http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=51486
2 Disconnect all cables and wireless clients.
3 Do a 30/30/30 reset on router
4 Connect 1 Lan cable to pc doing the flash.
5 Log into Web Interface and flash the firmware 14929 E2000 Trailed Initial Flash Build
6 Wait 10 minutes until WAN light turns on. or you will brick the router.
7 Power cycle by unplugging E2000 for 30 secs.
8 Plug E2000 back in and wait about 5 minutes until it finishes booting.
9 Do a 30/30/30 reset on router.
10 Wait 3 minutes and log into web interface.

Here is the Best step-by-step to setup your E2000 as Client Bridged

http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Client_Bridged

After Ruining DD-WRT for days, trying to achieve stable wireless repeater, my equipments is (Asus RT-12 > Temoto as Access point "Main AP") and (Linksys E2000 as a repeater with DD-WRT) doing all ways that could be done. unfortunately, can't get stable wireless network at the other end.

Now, after days of investigation, I DID IT Smilie, running both router with Tomato, Version 1.28. as Access Point + WDS
Using steps on the following link,
I use this Security sitting:
Security = WPA2 Personal
Encryption = AES
http://www.polarcloud.com/tomatofaq#how_do_i_use_wds

Same SSID for both and whenever you going toward strong signal your (Laptop, or any wireless device) will catch it.

Please check the TomatoUSB web site [tomatousb.org] for compatible versions of Tomato firmware. For the e2000, appropriate builds will have the router name in the file name.

The E2000 can be flashed with Tomato VPN from here: E2000 Tomato VPN Download Page [tomatousb.org]

And you can follow this guide to setup up VPN: HowToGeek.com's OpenVPN / Tomato VPN setup tutorial [howtogeek.com]

sweet deal, def better than the $34 + tax shipped from cisco a week ago, assuming this site is reputable. i just received mine from last week's fp deal and flashed tomato 1.28 on there

btw, it's interesting to note that this is perhaps the first router i've encountered where the initial setup requires you to plug the computer directly into the WAN (internet) port of the router as opposed to one of the 4 regular LAN ports. but that all changes after you flash custom firmware (tomato/dd-wrt).
