    Got one of these for a gamer friend of mine, and then just bought one for Mom last week, paid $55. Now they're $45, no promo code.

    Limit 20 per customer.

    I believe that these will run Factory AsusWRT, MerlinWRT, DD-WRT, and Shibby Tomato, maybe OpenWRT and Gargoyle too, don't know.

    These routers are mostly un-brickable due to the Asus recovery feature, for updating firmware and clearing NVRAM, so feel free to experiment with them.

    Edit: Even with the factory firmware, which is still being developed and updated, they are very solid routers, with lots of features. Note, that AFAIK, these do NOT work with AiMesh. Only the AC66U B1 model, which is based on AC68U hardware, and higher.
