Can someone school me on why this is $60 better than the RT-N56U model? The RT-N66U has external antennas, I see One is max 300mbps, the other is 450 mbps.

I used 3 dlink omni directional antennas. For example in my case, I could go outside and get 2 bars with stock antenna. With 3 of these, I got 4 bars at the same location.
Here is the ones I got: http://slickdeals.net/f/5859254-D-Link-ANT24-0700-2-4GHz-Omni-Directional-7dBi-Indoor-Antenna-for-10-99-vs-typically-24

Because if it was based on the warranty in general, 95%+ of those have warranty policies which clearly state they will repair it, replace it with a like item or a newer/new item if discontinued. That means you shouldn't be dealing with most of the companies you purchase from
I don't really know what your griping about on Asus. They continue the warranty on the replacement item for the rest of the length of the original warranty of the item you purchased.
In regard to the lemon law comparison of a $150 piece of electronics, to a $15,000 - $500,000 vehicle, that is an absurd comparison.

|VorlonFrog||My Asus RT-N16 started going flaky a few months ago, just two or three months beyond the two-year warranty. Fortunately, a handful of 50-cent Nichicon capacitors and some soldering brought it back to life.|

Meaning I was stupid enuf to think i could hang a drive off the usb and back it up. Wrong..
didnt happen. Range performance were not an issue for me so the 25.00 linksys for my use is fine. If the day comes and range becomes an issue id consider. but if I cant hang a drive off the router and back up my pc's theres no value for my case. So while this might be great for many it might not befor everyone. The 3 cases for my network issues (dropped signals, slow netflix). were solved by 1. changing the router to modem cat5. 2. Removing antivrus 3. bad ip. unplug router modem and shutdown pc wait 5 seconds then plug in modem thenrouter then boot pc.

The FIOS wifi router was the sole reason I purchased this unit. Its wifi range was abysmal. I tried high-gain antennas, mounting the antenna way up in the air, but still 10 ft away in a clear line of sight I lost 1 bar.
The Asus has a fantastic range out of the box, and there are settings to boost the power. I was thinking I'd have to mount it in the middle of my house but even tucked away in my networking closet I get a good signal at my neighbor's next door (houses are pretty close). I don't really use any of the advanced features, but just for the WiFi right now.
