A little powerful than my own Netgear. (3700, 3800)

If you are happy with it, go ahead.

Well finally giving up on Dlink completely- their support is useless as each time I call the dam thing is working so what ever they suggest just keeps it working , but after a few hours the wireless goes back out. This router is on sale at the egg- what do you think?

Newegg.com - ASUS RT-N56U Wireless Router Dual Band N600 Multimedia Ultra Slim Gigabit 802.11a/b/g/n support USB Storage, Print and Media Server (top performance review at smallnetbuilder.com)

cant say I have ever heard good or bad about Asus in the Router arena- but they make good MOBO's and Laptops.

Never used them, can't say. But being ASUS, I wouldn't call it a bad thing.

I've had my NETGEAR WGR614 for 6 years and still works great!!

NETGEAR is a good brand.

I simply used it. Had all 4 LANS connected, plus wireless devices, it decided that it didn't want to deal with wireless. Kept dropping connections. Then it started to drop connections on LAN, too. Restart, firmware patch, reset defaults, nothing worked.
