For those who don't know this router is DD-WRT compliant and Gargoyle supported & arguably is the best bang for the buck.
Before you scream REPOST, please be aware that stock from all previous posts <$40 have been sold out. There is a rebate that expires on 12/1. If you want to order from the sites mentioned in the previous posts, you risk your rebate not being fulfilled b/c your credit card will be charged on the day the product ships (7-14 biz day wait on average).

Discover sometimes have promos where you get $200 CashBack after you spend $1000 in three months when you apply for a card. Keep a look out for that. That's what I did. I even already had a Discover card and applied for another one with this promo and still got the $200 CashBack.

The 3600 I linked which is a better performer at $1 less is still available. Smaller rebate too.

I guess I lucked out. I live in an apt and everything is within 3-5m distance....the difference seems striking at the 10m mark. Hopefully it doesn't affect me too much.

is this concurrent dual band for full N bandwidth?
posted: Nov. 24, 2012 @ 10:53p
I am thinking about getting one of these, don't currently use the 5ghz band but really want a N 2.4 router with really good range. There are not too many routers with external antennas, looking at these TP Link or an Asus router. Router will be in basement and I need it to reach first and second floor. My current Netgear wnr3500 works OK but range isn't the greatest and no external antennas.

Thinking about getting the 3600. Would the router arrive in time for the rebate (status says on order from manufacturer). I suppose I can use the order email as my receipt as long as it's dated before 12/1.
In order to use the 10 off coupon code, need to buy 5 bucks filler.
I flashed with gargoyle, but my wireless icon on my router is no longer flashing and I cannot get into TP link configuration page. I think I need to reflash to the original firmware...can someone help? I dig some basic searches but am a bit clueless...thanks
