I never found the wireless on the RT-N16 to be very good. Sure, routing performance was fine, and the ability to run DD-WRT or Tomato was great, but if you are going to be mainly using wireless, I don't think I'd recommend it. My Netgear WNDR3700 has much better wireless performance. And it too can run DD-WRT, but no Tomato as it's Atheros based. I think it still stills for over $100 though.
What do you mean when you say the wireless on RT-N16 isnt good? Like bad speed or range because i need more range than speed for wireless as my PC will be hooked up by Ethernet cable the devices on wifi will be my ipod touch wii, ocassionally a Ps3 and a laptop and here is my setup quickly drawn in paint
