Best Wireless N router for £50ish that supports DD WRT
November 20, 2009 8:39 AM   Subscribe

Im looking for recommendations on the best wireless N Router for around £50ish that supports DD WRT (or similar). I have a seperate cable modem so I dont need an all in one solution. I looked through the list of Linksys products buy unfortunately the one I can afford (WRT160N) v3 isnt supported.

I bought a Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 about 2 months ago based on the compatibility list at the dd-wrt website. I don't see N in the specs, but your best bet is to trawl through their matrix and hit newegg or tigerdirect.

It's worth checking used prices too, since a lot of people dump routers if they move in with another roommate that has one, etc. I installed DD WRT onto a linksys router that it wasn't recommended for, though I can't remember the model name. Worked fine, but it sounds like there's a fair bit of variation between the router models.

...glancing through the other Buffalo models in their DB, it looks like the WHR-G300N supports N Draft 2.0. According to Google, that puts it in the 47 euro range.

This is the first buffalo product I've bought, and it's been performing great. Flashed immediately, no issues whatsoever. Again, I looked for routers which were supported w/o much in the way of caveats.

You might also look at the tomato firmware, though I've never used it.
