Default Router ....................

Ok, looking for a new router again.

After all the trouble I had been having with DGL-4500.

some info

and so on and on

every since May of this year, D-link released 1.20 update that basically broke A1 revision of DGL-4500 router, and A2 revision isn't better.

1.20 firmware was released in May, in late July they released 1.21 firmware that didn't fix the issues.

Issues:
1) router usually locks up after 2-4 days of use, and has to be power cycled
2) wireless drops every 30-60 seconds when router is under load (transferring files from PC to PC), if not under load it drops wireless every few minutes.


I filed a complaint with BBB, so hopefully this will get resolved with full refund from Dlink. Since they broke their product with their poorly coded firmware.


OK, so now i'm looking for a new router.

What would you recommend?

Few things that I would like to have:
1) Gigabit switch, preferred, but not necessary since i can have separate switch
2) has to have 5ghz band, preferably dual band
3) WPA2
4) good range
5) n
