    I've been running Tomato on WRT54GL routers and I love it, but often the memory is less than 5% remaining. Also, I'm starting to have more clients using VPN so I'd like a little more processor power.

    Are there any potential problems? It looks better on paper, I'd just like to know how it performs in the real world (stability, performance, etc)

    Like mine. Have 2. Substantially better than a Linksys wr554gl? No. About the same performance.

    Yes, I agree. About the same performance... however, the buffalo tends to perform slightly faster and further on the wireless front. The GL is capable of withstanding overclocking, however, whereas the buffalo has zero tolerance for it.

    Is overclocking a dd-wrt feature? I haven't noticed it on the Tomato versions i've tried. I think i'd rather avoid overclocking anyway, i'm in an extremely hot and humid part of the world and i'd rather purchase a router designed to run at a higher speed.

    I've heard great reports about the buffalo's wireless performance, but i think we'll be using a couple Linksys WAG units around the office for wifi access and just using the buffalo for routing and vpn.

    About how much memory is free when using the buffalo's after a long period of uptime? Specifically for TomatoVPN if you have that information.

    Thanks for your input guy! much appreciated....
