Re: Looks like Belkin is buying the Linksys brand.

Now to figure out who I'll be switching to.

Firmware... I'm an OpenWrt user that loves the pure embedded Linux environment. For hardware I've been looking here: »www.netgear.com/home/products/wi···700.aspx

Just my 2 cents. This isn't a new one by any means but I like its maturity.

I have yet to use OpenWRT, but have used DD-WRT, and have heard good things about the WNDR3700. I don't think I need any new equipment at the moment, so we'll see what h/w is out there when I do.

I say "I don't think I need any new equipment..." because I have a Linksys/Cisco WRT610N, which is WIP in DD-WRT. It worked OK on the original version that I installed, but when I tried to upgrade it lost internet connectivity and 1 of the wireless radios. I've, since then, flashed back to the original Linksys firmware, which doesn't support DHCP reservations.

Edit: It looks like my WRT610N is now supported, but I'm sure that it was WIP as of 2-3 weeks ago.
