Is this the one that locks up after a port scan or was it an earlier version?

That one (with the Gigabit port) is the C5 which is $89. The $49 one is the C50 which is a 10/100.

If my memory is correct, excellent router with poor hard drive support and old generation wired connection. But for the general public, its a good choice. Maybe not future proof with the lack of gigabit connection for wired transmission.

I bought C8 a few weeks ago for $100. Would you say C8 is better than this one?

I get that it is much better. But for someone with a 25Mb bell fibe connection and no intention to use the wired connectors is it worth it? I might use the USB for a HD backup. I bought the C8 in a Lightening deal last Saturday for $109 but I wonder if I spent more than I needed.

You have the overhead if you ever do need it, and the C8 has a dual-core chip, so you won't bog down your router with multiple devices streaming at the same time. As well, you can use that USB as a media/print server as you mentioned. A good router will last you a while, while a cheap router will give you nothing but headaches.

Also 3 antennas > 2 antennas :)

Has anyone considered the new-ish Xiaomi Mi Wifi Router 3? For $35 sounds like it could be equivalent to this or better if you can get by the chinese only menus etc...
