Great router. Had one of these for three years. Mine is a v1, they changed processors and antennas for v2, so I can't really vouch for consistency between models.

I had both a V1 and a V2 of this router and loved them both. Although, they have the same chipset. The flash memory was doubled in the V2 and I'm pretty sure the antenna config was changed somewhat but other than that, there isn't much of a difference. V3 changed the chipset from Atheros to Broadcom.

How's the range? I have a buffalo wzr-300hp and I am not satisfied with range (and throughput more than 20 feet away).

This is a very good router, just stay away form Ver 3, ver3 is the only version that has given me tons of problems.

the $10 prepaid sounds like it would require 40-50 man hours and $27 in materials.

Instead of playing the lottery with this one (since you really don't want a V3, and even V1 can be finicky), buy a WNDR37AV. They come down in price every so often as well and is a guaranteed V2.

I agree, My V2 was a WNDR37AV (exact same router, just different packaging).

some folks actually want the V3 IIRC, due to better DD-WRT options - more Broadcom choices so it depends

I'm not trying to rain on your parade but I'm not sure how no official support and initial development starting just around August of last year is necessarily "better DD-WRT options."
