    can anyone recommend me a good wireless router priced around $50. Preferably 802.11n but doesn't have to be.

    thanks in advance!

    Not too many quality wireless-n routers around at that price point. If you'd be willing to go a little higher (~$75) you'd have a lot more options.

    With $50 you will get second hand used router or less known brand router. You can get Chinese made router. It also depends where you live.

    I vote for this Buffalo unit. $55 + s/h. I've used mine for about 3 years with DD-WRT and it is rock solid.

    No N, but I have no need for that.

    WRT54G(L) with Tomato. If you get a WRT54G make sure it's an older model that can run custom firmware.

    I have a almost new DIR-628 Dlink that i'm looking to sell. Just pay shipping if you're in the U.S. PM if you're interested. I updated to the Airport Extreme around 3 months after buying this one. It was a deal I couldn't pass up.

    Na, i don't live in the US, sorry.

    btw Zotrium, do you know if Tomato runs on WRT54G2. I saw it at my local electronics store and it was a good price. I checked the Tomato site but it doesn't specify if this model is supported.
