router failure and fail-over

Last night, power failure and UPS draining caused the servers and routers to go down. The Dlink DFL-210 router did not come back up after power returned. This morning, replaced it with a Linksys WRT54GS - cost around Rs. 3,500

The router which failed yesterday - DLINK DFL-210 - cost around Rs. 22,000

Both these models are no longer available. DFL-260 is a possible replacement, PB checking Indian market cost found it to be around Rs. 50,000.

According to posts on this page, newer routers don't have the built-in static routing which we need, dd-wrt is a possibility.

So, we're planning to try out Dlink DIR-615 and are going to try and load dd-wrt on it.
