Great N router. It's an unbraded Aceex NR22-Y, which supports dd-wrt. True N speeds, theoretically - I only get to 150~160 mb, which are good speeds. It's very stable, even with stock firmware. 2T2R and MIMO, kinda nice to see this in such a cheap N router. UPnP that actually works.
Not that cheap - brand routers, although not N ones, are cheaper.
Stock firmware is just a very simple implementation of Ralink SoC SDK, which may be hard to fool around for the end user.
Ralink SoC drivers implementation in dd-wrt are kinda experimental, so don't expect much improvement over the stock firmware speed through wi-fi.
Update this to dd-wrt. It's fun, easy to use and a LOT more useful. Repeater bridge mode works ok if you use NG-mixed - but then your wireless clients will connect only in G speeds.
If you do update, use build 1411 pre-sp2. It's the most stable one for Ralink chipsets.
Buy buy buy. Great router, great speed, easy to use (as long as you update it to dd-wrt) and very, very stable (it's been on for a week now and no reduction in performance).
A true winner.
