    Hi all,

    Will be in the UK in a few weeks and I'm looking to buy this router, ASUS RT-N66U (Dark Knight).

    Does anyone know where it can be bought, in the UK? I'm looking for a bricks and mortar store, preferably in Liverpool. I know it's available on Amazon.co.uk and I'll probably use that option as a last resort.

    This might be a long shot, but worth asking :)

    You could try scan.co.uk - order online and pick up from their shop in Bolton (not that far from Liverpool?) using their Q-Collect service

    Scan.co.uk expands its Bolton store with huge new retail section - Retailers - News - HEXUS.net


    Good bit of kit - I have one myself. I would recommend installing Merlin's latest customised firmware though - he has fixed a few of the bugs that are still there, and added a number of additional features, whilst sticking closely to the official ASUS release. Check out the release notes carefully, as he has implemented the full 64k nvram, whilst the latest official ASUS release has only activated 32k nvram
