Very nice! I kind of expected the dd-wrt part as nowadays it's a stinking pile of ****. Seriously, too many bugs.
I hate that they didn't test OpenWRT. OpenWRT uses newer kernels and in general better code. At least for the lower level stuff.
Forgot to add OpenWRT on the requests.
@Mangix - is openwrt fully support RT-N66U?
Probably not. OpenWRT has problems with Broadcom support since they use open source drivers. That and not many OpenWRT people care for Broadcom.
On another note, I've been having Dark_Shadow test OpenWRT on a NETGEAR WNDR3400. 5GHz does not work.
edit: ah I see why you asked. The comparison made in the article was on an RT-N66U.
Although OpenWRT does not support as many Broadcom routers(compared to tomato and dd-wrt), I still believe it to be very valuable.
Two things I would have liked to see tested here:
1) Latest builds of Shibby and Asuswrt-merlin. We both upgraded to the very latest miniupnpd, so I suspect that would have fixed quite a few of the upnp errors (and the difference between A-M and Tomato was probably due to the fact I was still on 1.4 and Tomato was on 1.6 at the time of the test)
2) I suspect the SIP test wouldn't all have failed if the SIP ALG helper had been disabled.
I looked at possibly trying out the demo version of CDRouter to test myself, but their site says that it doesn't work in a virtual environment - would require a physical workstation with multiple NICs. Which would also rule out using my laptop
