Best router for Tomato ?

    Hi all,

    I know this is a Linksys forum, but I'm posting this topic anyway. If I break the rules, feel free to delete it.

    I'm currently running a WRT-310Nv2 with DD-WRT (mini editions). I find DD-WRT ok, but I feel Tomato would suit me more. Unfortunatly, my router is not supported by Tomato. I don't feel like trying and brick it. Plus, my 310n is "only" 4MB of Flash.

    As a router, I need Wireless N and Gigabit. I do, what I call, intense networking at home. As you probably know, the Tomato firmware is supporting mostly Wireless G routers. There are only few N routers that are supported.

    And to be honest, I'm getting a bit sick of Linksys. Used to own D-Link few years ago, and it lasted me 4 years. Since my old DLink DGL-4300 died, I've had 3 D-Link within 2 years because they were always breaking down.

    So I'm looking at other routers. I've come accross these 2:

    Asus RT-N16
    Netgear WNR3500L

    Are these any good ? Reliability, performances... these are quite cheaps compared to the Linksys routers. Which one would you get ? I'm also open to suggestions, even Linksys.

    Unless, the WRT-310Nv2 is soon to be supported by Tomato ?

    Thanks guys,

    Neo.

    The Asus RT-N16 is the current go to router for Tomato. A lot of people seem pleased with it.

    Will the stock Tomato firmware fun on the Asus RT-N16 or would you need one of the mods?

    Errr.. D-Link is not Linksys. They're two entirely separate competing companies.

    As for what router to get. I'd say the Asus RT-N16 like the other poster mentioned.

    This mod should run it.

    Yeah sorry I know, I made a mistake in my post :) I wanted to say:

    Used to own D-Link few years ago, and it lasted me 4 years. Since my old DLink DGL-4300 died, I've had 3 Linksys within 2 years because they were always breaking down.
