Was at one of the local Walmart looking for the "CLEARANCE" Samsung EVO 128GB microSD (none were found even though BrickSeek showed 5 in stock), WeMo Outlet, and/or RING Door Bell and ended up seeing this

ASUS RT-A68R router that was sitting on the shelf with the yellow clearance price tag of $49.00 labeled for a Netgear product. I have been missing out on many of the T-mobile ASUS AC1900 routers deals and happened to score this instead.Click image for larger version

The link below is for reference because Walmart does not show this item on their website anymore due to it being a clearance item. Of course, with any "CLEARANCE" item, it's always YMMV.

The one I nabbed for $89 last night was a C1 hardware revision that's not compatible with third party firmwares, so it's going back.

I just checked Tomato last night. I'm not even sure if any of the custom firmwares are capable of this, sine I haven't been into them since dd-wrt back in the G days (been on Airports since then), but my parents are moving to a place with satellite internet (50gbs/mo) and Verizon unlimited hotspot... So my thought was, I need a router that can artificially limit the internet speed to streaming devices, like their Roku, and then tune it to just grab the most basic 720p stream. Heck, iPads too. I can limit YouTube to 480p with an extension.

would adding this to the Uverse router give me any better wifi ? I feel like Uverse limits my 300 service

I just picked one up for $51 after tax at the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Glen Burnie, MD on Chesapeake. There is 1 more. The sticker on the shelf shows $139 but it thankfully rang up as $49. The CSR looked confused.
