Looking for info: Wireless Routers

So its time to better wire (or unwire) the house so that I can get a better signal in the other parts of the house.

  1. What routers do people suggest these day? I am currently using vintage Linksys WRT54GL boxes I got a while back that I am using as bridges from parts of the house to other parts. Since they have a closed broadcom chip in them they are using a 2.4 kernel with OpenWRT and such installed.I would like to look at something that is more open/stable.
  2. What Wireless OS do people suggest? I have OpenWRT on one and DD-wrt on another. I think I will go with the same on all the boxes just to keep upkeep simplest.
  3. Anyone set up radius with WPA2 and have it work for windows, mac and linux?
Anyway, if anyone has some ideas, please let me know. Thanks.

That a look at

Lots of routers that are open source friendly, even with the latest 802.11n support.

I use Tomato firmware on my WRT54G router and I think it is excellent.

Try the D-Link DIR-825. It has two independent Radios (2.4GHz/5GHz) and a 4 Port Gigabit Switch as well as a Gigabit WAN port and of course 802.11n.

I use it with OpenWRT here and have a howto for installing it on my Blog.
