any great wireless N routers?

is there anything like the WRT54G but that does the N standard?

don't really need ac right now and I think I'd rather get something a year or more older with tons of great reviews

New version of the WRT54G: http://www.amazon.com/Linksys-WRT190.../dp/B00K91DB7Y

Highly rated: http://www.amazon.com/RT-N66U-Dual-B...ds=asus+router

Also good: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...Y99XQQJPR0YS9M

I have the old version of this and it has worked flawlessly for years: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...QS7SCNYMGAKCM9

And you can get that last one in a refurb model for $65: http://www.amazon.com/WNDR4500v1-Wir...s=netgear+N900

If you can get the RT-N66U for $90, I'd probably hop on that deal.

idk google openwrt 802.11ac and find some routers. no point buying a router that can't run openwrt/dd-wrt/tomato, might as well just use your ISP provided wireless router-modem-deep-packet-inspector combo unit.

and just go with 802.11ac because thats what everyhting new has anyway and its backwards compatible

seriously if you don't use a non-OEM open source firmware on your router your a fucking moron

reports are constantly published about new vulnerabilities in oem firmware from various vendors allowing remote access through stupidly simple measures like default hardcoded admin passwords and unlocked backdoors. even worse are cable company provided router/modem combos which by default are backdoored so they can do deep packet inspection and filtering, mitm your https connections, perform analytics, and somewhat usefully, quickly patch [other] security holes that allow 3rd parties other than themselves access.

tons of botnets are constantly scanning every ip on the internet (yes yours) looking for holes like this so you *will* get exploited and you *will* join the botnet unless you either follow the manufacturer closely and update to patched firmware as soon as it is released, or use something much more secure like openwrt.

[this fulfills my serious post quota for the month]
