Quick question...

There's a lot of chatter about using third-party firmware on the Asus routers to fix various problems. Is it just a noisy minority, or is third-party software necessary?

I've found manufacturers firmware to be fine. I'd consider myself a moderate user of the features, but by no means a power user so i can't really comment on that side.

i was already more than likely going to buy the asus just wanted to see why.

Also gotta buy a switch as I have too much to plug into it.

Powerline to upstairs for my main pc
TV
Sky
Blu-ray
Xbox
HTPC

all where is it.

Need to get some longer ethernet as well mine are a bit short and pulling things.

Will probably buy some cat 6 as its cheap enough.
