Cheap Router/Repeater (with DD-WRT or Tomato)

Just bought a 50" Panny Plasma TV, and I have decided I don't want to support Panasonic's practice of making users buy a $60 USB wifi dongle instead of building that capability into the TV.

Anyone using an inexpensive repeater or router as a repeater for this purpose? Preferably one that works with a DD-WRT or Tomato firmware update.

Thanks for any suggestions.

  1. The best deal on a dd-wrt/tomato compatible router I'm currently aware of.

    A lot of bang for the buck when you consider 453 MHz CPU, 8 MB Flash, 64 MB RAM, 2 x USB 2.0, and 4 Port Gigabit Switch. It's almost a shame to waste it on a measly bridge. Would be even better if you already had a more modest dd-wrt as your primary. Just make the Belkin the primary and move the other one to bridging duties.
  2. Thanks! This was exactly what I was looking for. A good router at a great price because of sucky stock firmware that can be flashed to Tomato and DD-WRT. Just ordered it.

    I looked at the Newegg reviews, and someone was already doing with theirs exactly what I hope to do. :)
