Home router upgrade #2 - NetGear WNR3500L

Posted 11-05-2010 at 09:33 AM by Web31337

Yesterday I bought this cute tiny box for my home net. My previous routers were 2 PCs, first one I used since aug 2009 was P1 200mhz, 64mb ram, recent one is old celeron 2.4 ghz, 1g ram which is much more unstable than P1
These ones were using way too much power and make an excessive levels of noise, so I finally decided to trash this stuff and get myself a small box

Initially I was looking for a cheapest router supporting wifi(I have a laptop and I'm already sick of these wires all over my apartament), then I looked over reviews and decided to trash that idea as well, and stopping at advanced NG routers.
Although I don't really need unstandard features I would like to have ssh into real linux system on the device, however this is not the case with bundled firmware...
Features I also would like to see (were present on my previous PC as router): reconnect on request, full iptables control: also missing... There is no telnet here, at least I couldn't get it following the manuals.

The hardware platform itself seems to be good. I'll post my further experience with it, when I will manage to replace firmware (I am absolute newbie at this, however I have myopenrouter.com and LQ).
