Bonus points if you install Tomato on it.

Oops now I see the $75 figure, my bad.
Go with Clarkies suggestion, its best bang for buck in that price range.

That's a great router for the price and it runs Tomato great. It's major downfall is poor wireless antenna performance. If you have a small space, will be adding APs or don't need wireless at all, then go for it.

If wireless does matter, then I would recommend looking at the RT-N16. Similar CPU to the Netgear but with better antennas and 3x3 MIMO. A little more money, but worth it over the WNR3500L in my opinion.

I keep hearing that but I have found it does well throughout this house installed on end bottom floor of a two story house. Getting quite good reception at +50 feet.
I do agree that the other may be better as it does have the removable antennae the OP requested. But I just want to clear up the one issue someone complained about and everyone else repeats.

That's cool that it works for you. It may be often repeated, but I'm speaking from personal experience, as I use one myself. I also set one up as primary router in my brother's home, and a pair for my brother in law. All three of us are using a second AP to improve coverage.

I have a second AP I was going to use and found it not necessary.
