Summary: So far, so good. This router is not as easy to configure as most, but performance is very good. I was looking for an affordable, high speed router to improve my local network's performance. This router fit the bill. The increase in network speed, the ability to easily boost RF xmit power, as well as increase channel width has really helped the performance of my network. I have six wireless ip-cameras, in addition to the several other wireless devices.
Summary: OpenWrt attitude adjustment 12.09 works very well on this, including WDS mode. It's somewhat big, but has good range. It has a gigabit Ethernet switch and can handle 110 mb/s from wan to lan without sweating. With that firmware, has no trouble with connection management. The wireless throughput is good, even to my phone (limited by my phone of course). WDS mode works well and is also compatible with whr-hp-g300n running same firmware.
Summary: This was the first commercially available router I have used with DD-WRT out of the box. It seems to work well and has been very stable. Prior to writing this review I checked the up-time and it's over three months. Without tweaking the power, the range is already better than any other router I have owned. The hardware has a small footprint and seems well designed.
Great router, quick and excellent range. Reasonably priced.

Summary: Fantastic router. Easy to setup, very quick, excellent range. With the dd-wrt software installed this router operates like a router three times its price. Only thing I don't care about is the 3 antennas on top, but I guess thats a necessary evil. Still looks like these days, someone could design a better, less intrusive antenna.
High throughput at long distances, works great with openwrt

Summary: I got this for only $59.99, while Amazon had it on backorder, so the deep discount was certainly worth a couple weeks of extra wait time. I had been using a Netgear WNDR3700 v1 (dual band) but the best throughput I got with it in my living room (30ft and couple of walls away) was with the 2.4GHz band, getting 30-35Mbps (measured with iperf between 2 computers, one on wifi, the other on my LAN).
