For SOHO Linux routers I've used TP-LINK for the past several years with no issues, specifically a dozen WR741ND (150N wireless, 100Mbs Ethernet) and WR1043ND (300N + gigabit). None broke so far. They have Atheros chipsets, so no binary blobs are needed like for some Linksys stuff and the hardware is much better at the same price point: they can handle routing at full 100Mbps, radios go through 2-3 concrete walls with the stock antenna. (The ND models have detachable antenna as well.) Looking at OpenWRT's site, I see the newer revisions of these two are tricky or less tested. If you can buy one in a brick and mortar store, the hardware version number is printed on the retail box on the small sticker with two barcodes. Or you can return the box unopened, which most online retailers will accept. (talk) 04:15, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, I'll look around for those, I appreciate the info. I had originally planned to stay with Linksys because Newegg mentions they work with DD-WRT etc., and the 54GL was made sort of specifically for that purpose, while other stuff works sort of by accident. I do want to avoid binary blobs though, and I notice that the newer Linksys router I mentioned uses a Broadcom processor, which is usually bad news. (talk) 04:25, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Thank you re John F. Nash, PhD[edit]

I really enjoyed the link you left, regarding the new (as of Feb. 2012) exhibit of papers and cryptography work done by John Nash in the 1950's. Thank you so much for taking the time to share that. It was included in an appropriate place in the relevant article, I noticed. --FeralOink (talk) 05:58, 21 March 2013 (UTC)
