I've been out of the network game for years. What I'm looking for is simple however. I want the best router with the following criteria:
Dual USB ports (Pref 3.0) with Samba-or-similar sharing - This is a big one. If I can find a router that can do this at 100 MB/sec (~800mbps, my current wired network achieves this with a Linux box as a router, but I want to repurpose it) or even 75 MB/sec (~600mbps), it would be my dream router.
Faster is better with wireless.
Flashable - DD-WRT compatibility or similar.
Gigabit ports. I'd vastly prefer 8, but I can make do with 4.
The Asus Dark Knight seems to be everything I ever wanted in a router - sadly, it has USB 2.0 ports, but I have my doubts it can exceed the transfer rates of USB 2.0 over the network due to the relatively slow processor. I was wondering if there was anything better on the market?
