Hackable wireless-n router

by hotbelgo / August 21, 2009 7:36 PM PDT

Hi Tom & Raif,
My DI-524 is getting a bit unreliable and the signal does not reach my daughter's room at the top of the house very well. Would a wireless-n router help would i need to install a wireless-n card in her pc to get the benefit).

What about hacking it too? It looks like OpenWRT and DD-WRT are live projects but I found it very hard to sort through reviews of best routers and the lists of xWRT supported routers. Any recommendations.

(Lastly, if the signal strength is good enough I'll put it in my study - leaving the lounge tidier and enabling the printer to be permanently connected if you can recommend a router with USB support.

I know that's a lot to ask, but....
