I have been running into some bad luck wit routers lately, in the last two years I have two routers and both have broken down within a year so quality control is an issue to be sure.

So here I go again with this crap, anyone got a good, decently priced router suggestion that works with linux, offers wireless N speeds, has a large coverage area and doesn't coast $300? Like something that costs $100?

Both linksys and netgear I have owned and may try d-link, TRENDnet or some other brand... I can still order online as at least the modem we have works.

I would look at these routers that support dd-wrt. But, the FCC is planning on locking down router firmware because dd-wrt allows one to change the power output of the router. I only have experience with the old linksys wrt54gl model. The one I had was rock solid for years. I have heard that the ASUS is a good router.
