One of the most requested and widely-used open source firmware routers, the Asus RT-N16 is truly built to perform. The RT-N16 is sought after for its 2 network USB ports, 128 MB of RAM, and 32 MB of Flash Memory—more than 4 times the standard memory size for a router. Add in the 3 powerful and upgradable external antennae and the Asus RT-N16 is arguably the best single-band router you can buy.
Whether you are looking for advanced bandwidth monitoring, a stronger wireless signal, or increased security, the Asus RT-N16 will not disappoint. The Asus RT-N16 offers wireless transfer speeds of up to 300Mbps with excellent WiFi coverage, suitable for all of your streaming music, TV shows, and movies.
With integrated DD-WRT added benefits, users can create a secure tunnel for connected devices that use the router. Native VPN support for PPTP, L2TP, and OpenVPN creates an additional layer of Internet encryption and personal privacy, while allowing you to mask your location for additional security. Encrypt your data with high grade AES encryption for confidential e-mails, to conceal viewing habits, P2P downloads, and sensitive data from Internet Service Providers, government agencies, identity thieves, and hackers.

While this router functions very well with DD-WRT, I suggest you go for something better. I was using this router for a few days, and decided it would be better to take the plunge, send it back, and upgrade to a better device... the RT-AC66U. The AC66U is a superior device, with wider range and stronger processing power. The price difference between the two routers wasn't massive, and I could certainly see a major difference with the AC66U. So yes, go for something better. ;)
The RT-N16 is a classic in networking. Easy setup, perfect VPN integration... I had no problems here. A very cool piece of machinery. Fast shipping and great support from FlashRouters as well!
I definitely recommend using FlashRouters. Speedy delivery, patient and helpful support, and a fantastic service. I can't recommend the service more. FlashRouters provides a solution for a problem that seemed to be inescapable. Now, I feel like all of my devices are safer, and I am able to watch what I wish. Fantastic.
This is an awesome router. Great design, brilliant performance, and the DD-WRT is fantastic. FlashRouters does an awesome service by making great routers even better. The support was very helpful as well.
FlashRouters has great service and speedy delivery. Definitely recommended.
Great support during set up. Fantastic router!
Forget spending hours deciphering and testing the DD-WRT forums/website/Wiki for the correct hardware version and proper build only to discover that you've improperly flashed your device and bricked it.
FlashRouters offers what many router manufacturers won't: better firmware plus basic network and VPN service configuration assistance from responsive and highly trained USA tech support that will actually answer your questions.
