Good router for good price – 2.4GHz 300Mbps 802.11n WLAN/WiFi/Wireless Broadband Router Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Cheap. Fast. Web-interface is smooth and easy to configure. Command-line is accessible even in default firmware - linux 2.6.21/busybox inside. Hardware: Ralink 3052, # cat /proc/meminfo
MemTotal: 30076 kB
This chipset seems to be promising/provides good thoroughtput - review internet
Cons:
Plastic case seems to be "easy to kill". Default firmware doesn't support clients to use VPN (no ip_nat_pptp module), so needs firmware replacement if you need to use pptp vpn.
Other:
Even default firmware seems like support usb. There are some scripts in /sbin and support of connection via few USB 3G modems in web interface. So small hardware modding (of course, at your own risk) plus custom firmware will allow you to use it as print server/connect flash drives. Maybe, it will allow even to connect external HD, enable swap and use it as bittorrent client?
Bottomline:
Buy it. You'll not find anything cheaper in local stores, maybe unless you are in China :)
