I wish I could just get the router minus the $59 that the hard drive costs.
what's up with these $200 priced routers, since when have we started feeding this trend to the manufacturers... half the price of a laptop/tablet but with a lot less functionality. In fact, most of us dont even use the stock firmware.
Its time to go back to when we could buy the best (tomato/dd-wrt flashable) routers for $100 or less.
Agreed. I'm in need for a new router, since my Netgear WNR3500 (v1) is consistently disconnecting/restarting and wireless just stops working.
However, I'm having a hard time justifying a puchasing a $150 router. The RT-N66U is a fantastic router, but it's just painful to spend this much on a router when a few generations ago you could get workhorses like the WRT54GL for sub-$100.
