I'm in the process of choosing a router and I'm having a hard time settling on anything. History of routers for me, I used a Linksys WRT54G for a long time with DDWRT/Tomato. After that I used a WRT1200AC with DDWRT and overall was happy with it. Bottom line is, I am moving to a new place and won't have the WRT1200 anymore. It looks like the WRT3200ACM was a favorite for open source firmware, but in reviews I've been reading about issues with recent revisions and DDWRT compatibility. Open source isn't an absolute requirement, but I've never liked factory firmware in the past. Always led to needing regular reboots and other issues. Maybe there are better options these days. If anyone has expertise in this area I'm interested in your input! I'm not a gamer, but I need reliability for day trading. I also plan to be hard-wired for that, though I have some wireless devices. I'd like something reliable, cost-effective and that will be sufficient for the long haul.
