Default wireless router with more than 32 DHCP reservation/macfilter

working from a SME environment, looking for a router to replace my ASUS RT-N56U as it is limited to 32 entries in DHCP reserved address and 32 address in the Mac Filter (Lan).

Any recommendation of good quality router, and if possible to avoid the like of Tomato & WRTs, that would have more than 32 entries for reserved address and Lan Mac filters?
I have looked at other ASUS, Dlink, lynksys... they all seem limited in that regard

and if not possible to avoid, what would be a good performance router/firmware? is the ASUS RT-N66U with Tomato Shibby a good solution?

TIA

If it's a Small to Medium Enterprise Environment (SME) - you probably want to go to a managed solution - that means Cisco/Aruba/Ruckus/Tropos/Xirrus/etc...

Putting one's paycheck on the line with a consumer grade access point (the Asus) and hacked firmware... not a good idea...

Wondering why you need to use DHCP reservations? If some are PCs, you can simply set the PCs to static IP (coordinated assignments). Static IP outside the DHCP pool range.

I use Cradlepoint routers.. most all use the same firmware, and I don't see mention of a restriction on number of DHCP reservations (within reason).
