• Any preinstalled dd-wrt routers out there from the factory?

    From Todd@110:110/2002 to All on Mon Apr 21 23:39:33 2014
    Hi All,

    I have found third parties that preinstall dd-wrt on
    routers -- doubles the price of the router -- but not
    preinstalled from the factory.

    Problem: although it is a good idea (open source, Linux,
    security updates), my customer base won't pay 10 extra
    cents for it.

    So, I was hoping to find one preinstalled at the factory,
    so I could actually sell them. Somewhere I though I heard
    that ASUS was going to do it.

    Many thanks,
    -T

    Hi Kirk,

    Thank you!

    As a reseller, I do not sell Buffalo products anymore as they
    are such bad quality. I have had to return too many of them and
    had to eat too much labor because of them. So, poop.

    I hope someone else comes out with a competing product soon.
    Seems to me that as soon as the manufactures realize they
    no longer have to support software, they'd jump on board.

    Sub $70 routers are really pushing the low quality envelope
    to start with, but customers won't pay for better. (You truely
    get what you pay for, but a lot of folks don't believe that
    anymore.)

    -T
