No DD-WRT yet, but good value! – SL-R6801 802.11b/g/n 150Mbps Wi-Fi Wireless Router - White (Ralink 5350) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- Works as a router
- Works as an Access Point
- Works as a wireless to ethernet converter
- Antenna is detachable, connector is standard.
- Decent throughput
Cons:
- No DD-WRT or OpenWRT support. Kind of a big deal considering what this could do with it.
- Web interface programmed in a hurry, only works well with Internet Explorer
- No 300 Mbps... :-(
- No one knows who made this or where is the website...
- ...so no firmware updates.
Other:
- I haven't opened it yet, but would not be surprised if there were unused antenna connection points to add extra antennas, at least one.
Bottomline:
- Yeah, no DD-WRT. But works very well even so, and if you have two you can have a very serviceable 150 Mbps wireless bridge for very little money. I might order a second one if I cannot unbrick my other router...
