    No, only DD-WRT supports N-Routers as of now.

    I hope N routers soon become supported as well. I've been waiting a long time to get one. I waited mostly because I wanted the specs to be finalized, no Pre-N crap for me. Plus I don't want to give up using 3rd Party Firmwares like Tomato.

    Virtually already is finalized, it's said the specs aren't going to change anymore, so any new N router out now will do just fine.

    what wireless chipset manuf have the best opensource support ?

    is that the best way to make a decision on a N router so in the future it can take aftermarket firmware ?

    I have been mucking around with openWRT on my spare 54GL and am thinking I might just go with a ubiquiti routerstation.

    Most of the Linksys N routers use Broadcom chipsets which are supported by third party DD-WRT, so I'd say going broadcom-based chipsets are a good bet for being supported, not sure about other chipset manuf's.

    Just moved past virtual finalization - the IEEE approved 802.11n on September 11 2009, 6 years to the day since the "802.11n Task Group" was formed (see timeline). The Wi-Fi Alliance has said it will update its Wi-Fi certification program on Sept. 30 to begin testing WLAN products that meet the full standard. Only a few additions have been made to the standard in the past 2 years, and these all involve optional features. According to the Alliance, users can expect future Wi-Fi products to be fully compatible with today’s products.

    Wow. 8 years since islamicfacists declared war on the modern world and western civilisation by destroying nearly 4000 persons and the two largest landmark buildings in the USA... well, that's a couple landmarks in the same calendar day.

    I'm still a big fan of the broadcom chips. they seem to work better than the Atheros chips.

    I know plenty of people who were in the area and one woman who was in the buildings who fortunately made it out. I'd never intentionally show any disrespect to victims of that event, nor give additional recognition to the perpetrators. Of course I recognized the date, but chose not to mention it, maybe my mistake.

    I suppose.. saying... theres a time and place for everything... would be deemed too insensitive and politically incorrect here?....

    No, it wouldn't...I'm right there with ya.

    I'll never forget the tragedy of September 11th, but that doesn't mean I have to, say, have it plastered on my car, in my e-mail or forum signature line, use it as my opening line at a bar, etc.
