ah ok - so no vlans then. So what features are you looking for - what does the APE lack that your looking to do?
So the basics of this:
1: all bedrooms, secondary loft, living room, dining room, and kitchen have cat5e that are home runned back to garage. A netgear gs108na will be placed there to connect all rooms.
2. the rt-n65u will connect to the comcast modem and act as the router for dhcp. The aebs will be a AP for wireless and connect to the router.
3. the second gs108na will connect to the router and provide access to my server cabinet. That has my mac mini server, 2 nas, networked printer, and then extra ports for future expansion.
4. The aebs provides wireless for all wireless devices such as laptop, smartphones, tablets, and roku 3.
If you don't mind the slight lack of configuration, the AEBS is the best wireless router I've come across.
What would you like to do that the AEBS can't do?
The aebs is great but it does lack some features that the asus provides.
