Searching for router suggestions. Must support DD-WRT/TomatoUSB, list of requirements within.

Usage will be small-offices, no more than 12 active computers @ once.
-Highest throughput possible
-Gigabit ports (duh)
-Support for DD-WRT/TomatoUSB (Ideally mega builds w/ onboard VPN)
-Durability, I can't be there to look at it every day, although there are tomato scripts to autoreboot on broadcast fail I understand.
-Dual Band N
-Multiple USB ports (2, not sure if you can put a hub in the routers with 1)
-Upgradeable external antennas
In the Past:
I've never been impressed with NetGear products, although I understand that the WNR3500L is pretty bulletproof with TomatoUSB.
I've never had problems w/ Linksys or Asus products, although the most I've gotten out of a Linksys router is about 2 years.
Really would like to be sub-$100, buying two to start---one for home and one for a client.
