Need a new router

#1betatechPosted 10/10/2013 1:39:26 AM
My Asus RT-N66U has wifi issues and even Asus are telling me to return it, since this is my second RT-N66U I'm considering getting a different router.

Are there any suggestions for possible alternatives? I have FTTC so a cable router will be fine.

It must have:
Gigabit ethernet
VERY GOOD WIFI (there's a boiler in my room, previously the N66U was good enough but for whatever reasons it stopped working earlier this year (I suspect the firmware)).
USB SMB share
From Amazon.co.uk
<=150-160
Dedicated unit, I can't re-purpose any old hardware nor do I have the space for it
IGMP (we have an IPTV downstairs which requires it)
(if possible) VPN capabilities

I know they launched the AC68U yesterday in the states but I don't know when it will be available in the UK.

Thank you.

Again that's not an option due to a lack of space.

Unfortunately that doesn't seem to be available on Amazon UK, or even the UK officially.
