    Just like with computers, there is no "best" router. What there is, is a router that is best for you, which is usually a combination of features, performance and price. In my case I went with an ASUS RT-N66U because it's high performing and has good support for 802.11n and is flashable with the variant of Tomato firmware that I use. With stock firmware it's very good, I just wanted more.

    A step down from that is the ASUS RT-N12D1 which I just got and setup for a client at $75. Prices of course vary by where you buy from, but Amazon usually has good deals.

    In general most modern routers support OpenDNS; however, we caution against any modem and router all in one from a cable or internet provider since they typically lock down the device settings. We also advise against Linksys or Cisco home routers since there is a software bug that prevents the ability to set DNS servers on the router.
