Hey guys, not sure if this is the place to post but if not, mods please move to correct section. Thanks!
So I'm currently looking for a router that gives me a stronger wireless signal and N compatible router. Currently using an Asus WL-520GU.
What do you guys suggest? The current router is running DD-WRT, forgot which build as it was done some time ago.
So I was looking at the Buffalo AirStation Highpower N450/N600 and the upcoming Asus RT-N66U. Would these be good picks or should I be looking at something else? Looking to purchase soon. If I replace my existing router, can I use my existing router to become an access point somehow in the basement? That's where I'm having wireless signal issues because my router is in the 2nd floor.
I went with the Asus RT-N16 and run DD-WRT.
It's good enough for a 100mbit connection.
asus rt-n16 with tomato
RT-N16 with Tomato USB. Absolute stability & performance.
Another vote for RT-N16 here. I run mine with TomatoUSB firmware which is great, but it also supports dd-wrt which is said to be pretty good too.
The only downside I know of is the lack of dual band support, but most users tend not to need that.
I don't need a router yet but unless the hardware models released later on are significantly different down the line, that was the one I'd seriously consider.
I upgraded all the heatsinks and antennas on mine as well. Nice and easy to take apart.
wow, seems quite a lot of Asus users here...I might go with Asus as that was the plan all along, the Buffalo N450/N600 models have some impressive specs =/
Does anyone have any thoughts on a router that is compatible with Tomato or OpenWRT or DD-WRT? I want to buy a wifi router in the future that can run any of those but also has inherent QOS that works properly.
I'm trying to confirm whether the TP-Link TL-WW1043ND router can do all that. If so, I think that will be my next router. I looked up the router on the TP-Link website and they have some mention of QOS but I was hoping someone who has looked into that router can confirm. Can anyone comment?
Maybe the OP might be interested in these? :)
Well as stated above the Asus RT-N16 can run either DD-WRT or Tomato. I hear QOS on Tomato is "better" for some reason.
