    I decided I need a dual band router to improve connection among all the wireless devices in my house. Any recommendations other than the AEBS? I'm looking for a cheaper alternative.

    I have a DIR-825 and its great. If your going dual band make sure that at least some of the devices you are trying to connect are 5ghz compatible or else you'd be better off with a conventional 2.4ghz router.

    Just make sure you get one that has a USB2 port on it. This way you can easily attach a USB2 drive to make it a easy NAS drive. I would stick to Netgear.
