I have considered a good number of home routers. I must admit the ideal router does not seem to exist yet.
The ASUS RT-AC68U so far seems to be at least the most stable router I have tested.
My wishlist for new features:
- Network as clients in the client list to protect the administration [HIGH]
- Syslog to external host [MEDIUM]
- IPV6 DHCP [MEDIUM]
- Real firewall settings [MEDIUM]
- IPSEC site-to-site VPN [MEDIUM]
- SSH commandline [LOW]
Most of these should be possible on the OS of the router so it is mostly a matter of adding them as configurable option.
