Re: ASUS RT-N66U

hi jackie999:

Check out the RT-N66U review at SmallNetBuilder:
»www.smallnetbuilder.com/wireless···reviewed

The N66U is supposed to have one of the best ranges of all the wireless routers out there.

Personally, i run the Toastman flavour of Tomato.

Nice router though ...it's really holding it's value. The more I shop for a router the more I return to this one.
Thanks.

Wait for at least Black Friday. Cheapest you can get it now is for $156.50 (Direct Canada). Or maybe wait for a Staples e-coupon to come into your inbox (if you're subscribed to getting Staples special offers via e-mail).

If you need Dual Band router that can be flashed with DD-WRT or Tomato (in MY opinion) this is the best router you can get for the money.

For sure other people recommend other routers too, but, if you do research you can see how many threads\reviews etc. are online about this hardware.

Current price @ CC was $159 + Tax, its not cheap, but ... if you need it, + - $20-50 bucks for me is not big deal really.

Both of your suggestions had occurred to me..black friday (I'm also shopping for a backup usenet subscription) and staples coupon (yes I do get them)
I had also read on smallnet builders, when the 66U was introducted that the ram was 1/2 utilized..I see now merlins firmware corrected that.
When I was shopping in tiger for the cisco router that I just got for work - the saleman told me it has the 'superior' internal antennas - I think now he was feeding me a load of bull. That'll teach me for impulse buying.
Most importantly..the 66U is a nice looking router
