I've been using a TrendNet TEW-639GR router now for about 3 years and it has served me well. It is located in the upstairs bedroom on the south side of my apartment, and the signal strength is very good downstairs on the north side of the apartment. There are 16 wireless networks within range of my laptop, but still there is no interference whatsoever. I would definitely recommend TrendNet. Congrats on scoring that HotHardware Corsair gaming system, JOMA!

I've been using the same router (TrendNet TEW-639GR). It's been ok, however I live in a really old house with brick walls and have a lot of trouble with weak signal about 50 - 100 feet from the router.
I just received a ASUS RT-N56u that I ordered, so we'll see how well this one does.

I suppose that I'm fortunate my apartment has wall boarding! I've heard that the metal lath in older lath-and-plaster walls can really hinder a wireless signal, too. Post back after you install your new Asus router and let me know how it works versus your TrendNet router!
i'd be curious to hear about your experience with the ASUS router. That is one of the units I was considering.
I have Lath & Plaster walls in my house and a metal roof too.
I use a Netgear N600 Dual Band Router and it's a lot better than the two Belkin-'N' Routers that I used to have to use. I used one as the router and one as an extender so that the signal would penetrate to the other side of my house.
The Netgear gives me full signal anywhere I go in the house.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
