@surveyor3 three votes for openwrt. i have an Archer C7 router that runs it like a dream, but YMMV depending on which one you have
I've been using DD-WRT for many years. When I buy a new router I will look for one supported by OpenWRT since it is 100% free software. You can also consider Tomato or Merlin (for Asus routers only).
