When it comes to networking I've gone away from the consumer stuff. I had an ASUS Dark Knight that worked well for many years until I upped my internet connection speed to 300mbps and it couldn't handle it with an aftermarket firmware. Never thought that'd be an issue, but it was. The stock firmware worked fine, but had other issues that I just couldn't fix without the aftermarket firmware. I now use a Sophos box (linux UMT), but I'm probably going to go with more Ubiquity equipment considering how good the Unifi WAP LR I purchased is. Not as cheap as the stuff BSA posted, but I've got a lot of area to fill. One of the good things about a lot of the routers out there is that if you really want you can change the stock firmware to Tomato or DDWRT and gain a lot more functionality. In my case Tomato actually fixed an issue I had with the 5ghz band disconnecting for a few seconds at random. Some good info is on SmallNetBuilder. They test tons of consumer routers.
