This list is missing one of the best routers out there. Buffalo. Even better since it comes with DD-wrt on it.

You're lucky.. Mine isn't even on there, a Cisco supplied by Cable Co.

Seeing as wifi range isn't tested is it safe to assume they're all about the same or is this set of benchmarks just incomplete?

That's too bad, understandable but I'm sure they could come up with a range benchmark through 5 walls and a refrigerator full of beer cans or something ~.
