I am looking for the best A/B/G/N dual band (simultaneous) router or access point that can be flashed with community firmware like dd-wrt or openwrt.

In the past I have used the WRT54G series from Linksys with great success as access points and bridges. The WRT610N looks nice but I'm not sure how well the community firmwares support it. I am open to any manufacturer and any input or experience would be appreciated.

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I'm also curious about the performance of the WRT610N. DD-WRT officially supports hardware versions 2 and 3 (iirc), but haven't had a chance to test it myself. – Greg Buehler Dec 23 '09 at 20:59
It would be nice if any recommendations came with rx sensitivity and tx power (at max speed)... that will directly affect performance and range – Joris Aug 23 '10 at 8:49

It doesn't exactly answer your question, but I would recommend RouterBoards and use the MikroTik RouterOS that come with them. They are not open source, but they are very powerful and you get a license with the hardware purchase.

You will also find all kinds of wireless-boards that fit from the same source.
