I like Buffalo routers for DD-WRT- it is factory installed/supported. They
do not do dual AP though. For that I just use a "TP-LINK" "N" router from
NewEgg ($15 on sale / $20 reg). I have the TP link set as a fixed IP on my
private net (192.168.x.x) and let it do DHCP on a completely separate
private net (10.x.x.x). I set the TP-LINK to block access to 192.168.x.x
and I limit the data rate to 1 mbs, also lower the power since I leave it
"open". May be a kludge but it works for me.
