I have an Asus RT-N66U, unfortunately this has been given wifi hassle for some time now and I'm sick of it so I'm looking at replacing it (I've done all the diagnosing I can including contacting Asus who say it's probably a hardware issue which given that this is the second N66U I've had means that I just want to return it).

What good replacement models should I look at? Maximum budget is 150-160 and preferably from Amazon UK as I like their returns policy.

My connection is FTTC/Cable and it MUST support IGMP.

Thank you.

Should be able to handle everything you need, and assuming you have a spare computer laying around like most of us do, it'll only run you about $30 maybe for some spare parts like a case or NIC if you lack something like that.

pfSense is exactly what I came here to recommend.

Problem I have with PFSense is that don't have anything suitable to put it on and I still need whatever I get to have a good antenna due to the nature of my house.

Plus I like something that I can easily return if it's no good like what's happened with this Asus.

That's just the maximum I'm willing to go, I just want something that I can leave to manage itself but the Asus has been to problematic over the past half a year even when I tried manually selecting the clearest channel and even had to disable one of the antennas at one point (it did improve the signal for a while).

It's a shame really because when I first got the thing it was brilliant at the job.

you can get a wireless pci card with a good antenna and pfsense can use it as an AP

Thats not the only problem though, for example, I need it to go in a specific place where either things I have lying around cant go or it would cause some other hassle.

How easy are third party firmwares?

Just thinking that it could be a firmware issue since it was fine earlier this year.
