    Default DD-WRT Router

    I don't have much time here, but can someone find me a router that DD-WRT supports? Under $50 if you please. My old one died about a week ago or so. I was hoping for a more up to date one if possible. The more antennas the better. :p Thanks!!

    What exactly do you mean here? Are you looking for a specific functionality or feature or just lots of bits of plastic sticking off the back?

    It looks like this one should work. It's the cheapest wireless router on Newegg that I would buy (ie, not Zonet, TP-link (?wtf or they?), or Trendnet), and according to the DD-WRT database some version of it at least is compatible. You might want to check that in more detail before buying it though. I know my router I ended up having to take back and swap for an older model because the new version isn't supported.

    Looks like the Buffalo WHR-HP-GN is a pretty solid choice for DD-WRT. Just over 40 bucks with free shipping.

    From the website it may already be loaded with DD-WRT!

    BUFFALO has decided to use DD-WRT as the factory default for its HighPower Routers WZR-HP-G300NH, WHR-HP-G300N and WHR-HP-GN distributed in the US and the EU and should be available in june 2010. The firmware is a full featured DD-WRT with a BUFFALO branded interface and contains some BUFFALO specific features.

    Right now the normal DD-WRT firmware binaries for the devices are available through the router database. In contrast to other BUFFALO firmwares these binaries can be flashed via webflash making the process much easier.

    Probably nothing, but according to the DD-WRT website, only 2 of them support DD-WRT and one of them appears to be discontinued. Also if you look at the comments the one that newegg is shipping, doesn't seem to actually support DD-WRT. Honestly, I have never had good luck with Trendnet. We have used some of their products at the office, and every one of them has some sort of issue. Such as their KVM's .. just all of a sudden, one of the ports just quit working. Same problem on 2 different KVM's. USB hubs just die for no apparent reason. Others may have better experiences, so I guess it just depends on the individual device.

    nothing with multiple antennas?

    routers with multiple antennas seem to handle traffic better (mimo?) and you can configure the settings to dedicate tx and rx, which is handy in certain situations, such as when dealing with different types of 3rd party antennas.

    The Buffalo seems pretty nice though. One reviewer said they would start shipping a upgraded firmware model in june, itd be nice if that were true.

    dd-wrt basically turns a limited functionality device into a rainbow eating unicorn power house.

    I was thinking the same thing. I looked it up and it still seems like something that I wouldn't know how to benefit from. Maybe someone could give me some examples of ways?

    over-clocking, adjustable transmitting power, easily changeable wireless modes (AP, Repeater, etc), hot-spot options (get paid to be open), and just all around highly configurable. Its kinda like jail-breaking for routers I guess. it opens up numerous configuring options for any supported router. it turned my old $50 wrt54g into something that would otherwise cost me hundreds.
