    If I had the money it would be an ASUS Dark Night but as of right now im using a Buffalo Air station wireless N 600 and it is doing great.

    Motorola SB6120 Router to Cisco WRT610N, and a mini Cisco SD2008 8 port 1 Gig switch. I also have a Belkin Home Base and a Linksys WRT54GL - but those are more of clients on the network than network core devices.

    I'm not thrilled with the Cisco WRT610N's performance. At times it's wireless side can seem to hang, and cause disconnects.

    ASUS for sure. All the other vendors need to catch up to the stability and the functionality of ASUS product. The only ding I can give to ASUS is their support. WORST RMA DEPT. EVER.

    Mine is about 1 year old TP-LINK ER6120 Rackmounted Enterprise Wired VPN Router Managed Switch Ports for LAN/WAN still going strong matched with TP-LINK TL-SG3216 Rackmounted Enterprise L2 Managed Switch LAN ports Megabit/Gigabit.

    For WiFi access point I use Engenius ESR600H 600MHz NPU, 256MB RAM, Megabit/Gigabit Ports. Also a year old now all 3 with NSA325 NAS Files Server/Media Server from ZyXel works wonderful.

    For 2012/2013 I've added Slicone Dust HDHomeRun Dual Network Tuners 100 Megabit so now I got Quad (2x of them) After pairing them up correctly they run smoothly on network. Recording 1080i off HDTV Local Broadcast Stations. Get now up to 71 channels over the air without CATV!
