After many hours of research, I decided on the RT-n16 because it can support open source firmware. There are DD-WRT, Tomato USB and Oleg firmware out there for you to try. I like the Tomato USB because it supports USB print and storage without any tweaking. Just plug it in and it works. DD-WRT is great as well, but you have to know a lot more like Telnet etc. I would recommend using Tomato USB. Speed wise is fast as well. But don't expect the USB storage to be fast. It is giving me just enough to stream video, but not as fast as compared to direct connection to USB. But it is sufficient. Print is also relatively simple.

I use these for dd-wrt mega/big setup. 128 MB ram and a 32 MB flash... Pretty sweet. Just don't try to change the wireless output power or you get some really weird oddness going on.

Product Overview

Wireless N Surfing, Scanning, and Printing All with One Router

ASUS RT-N16 provides users with high performance wireless N connectivity, lightning fast Gigabit Ethernet, and incredible versatility. Whether you choose to use is as a print server, BitTorrent hub, FTP storage, ultra-fast Wireless N router, or all of the above at the same time, it's an all-in-one router you'll wonder how you used to manage without it.

Right out of the box, the RT-N16 gets you up and running in only five clicks through its simple 3-step CD-free installation. And thanks to its streamlined EZ Quality of Service (EZQoS), you can effortlessly optimize bandwidth for gaming, video calls, downloading or whatever else you choose. Download Master is a BitTorrent client that shifts download duties from the PC directly to the router-attached storage via the two onboard USB ports. This allows you to download and share files wherever you have Internet access without going through a PC. For even more convenience,  ASUS AiDisk transforms a connected USB device into an FTP server for remote transfers. Plugging in a USB All-in-One printer, you can share both printer and scanner functions between all networked PCs.

The ASUS RT-N16 also features 300Mbps throughput on a 2.4GHz wireless band, four standard 10/100/1000 LAN Ethernet ports, and one inbound Ethernet port.
