Buying a New Router

I was quite a fan of Buffalo, that is until one of them started exhibiting strange behaviour (randomly start dropping packgets like a mofo), and the other suffers an annoying “wifi stops working unless you factory reset” issue if you cycle the power.

I landed on the EA3500. Thought I’d give Cisco Linksys a try, and they have decent DD-WRT support if I go that way (I will try the stock firmware first, not least because they advertise iPhone app support).  Looking forward to 5Ghz support for my Macs =)

Judging from the comparison, and this article, it has all the features of the high end routers, without the extra price tag of the absolute top of the line model. Not a bad compromise.
