Last Edited by cricket702 May 25, 2016 at 05:25 PM
Walmart's website [walmart.com] says all locations in my area are out of stock, but the store closest to me (3601 29th Ave SW Cedar Rapids, Iowa) had a whole endcap of them for $15 each (was $44.97). I picked up two for myself and thought I'd share. These are still selling for about $34 from Newegg [newegg.com] & Amazon [amazon.com].

not really stable with DD-WRT, tried multiple versions
ended up installing Tomato by Shibby,wanted to set vpn client on it.
Its a whole new learning path with tomato, it would have been easier if dd-wrt had worked on this.

I picked on up @ $15, openwrt will install and run but the wifi radio isn't supported. Still useful if you want an openwrt firewall / wired router to use with other dedicated wifi access points (which is what I have, openwrt firewall/router, with a couple of other openwrt wireless routers around the house configured as AP only. I flashed the linksys firmware back onto the ~~e3000~~ e1200 and am keeping it as a spare or to give to relatives.

Not to thread crap, but why? Who would get this short of residing in the smallest of single story apartments? Just get something better to insure stronger coverage.

Much prefer Tomato here. Faster and more stable on the routers I have tried. Also I like the layout better, the placement of everything makes more sense than DDWRT.

If you are used to DDWRT, then it would be more familiar, but if you have no experience with either, Tomato is easier to start with.

Can you point to steps, I am trying to setup a client which will connect to my main router and then VPN out (openvpn)and I need to be able to connect to it via wifi too. It's simple in dd-wrt, can all be done via GUI.

Eh, ideally, yes..being on AC is the best option. However, don't count out N just yet. It is still a pretty good and cheap standard for folks who don't have a lot of cash on hand or the internet connection to use AC standards. Most folks I know are still using N routers and some are on their even older WRT54G routers.

In my area, internet is kinda limited and DSL is 5mbs maximum if you are lucky. Having an AC router would be pretty pointless when your bottle neck is the internet connection itself. N (or even G) would be affordable while giving the max possible speed on my connection.

I have many devices at home and live in a densely populated community. Without tri- band AC I would suffer... You made a good point tho.

Yes. I removed the wires after switching to tri- band AC. Enough to host NAS even.

Oh absolutely, when I was living in dorms. It is a nightmare to be on the 2.4ghz band with so many people clogging up the channels (especially when someone microwaves their food). In crowded places, I would definitely recommend dual band routers like AC routers and being on the 5ghz band.
