E3000: Shibby 116 or earlier?

    I had problems with the 116 build on my ASUS RTN66U because of the new BCM 5.110 driver so I assume I'd have the same problem on my E3000. I also see people are having speed issues with 115.
    I am currently on 108. Should I stick with 108 or is there a better version that has less problems than 116 and 116. How is 114?

    I believe the driver for E3000 didn't change. I'm currently using v115 and it works fine with E3000. It's easy to switch firmwares and test it out yourself. Let us know your experience.

    I'm pretty sure 116 is using the 5.110 driver (problematic). 115 is definitely using 5.10 which has been good. I'd like to use 115 but have seen posts on other boards about a 30% speed decrease.

    I was hoping someone had done the testing already as I really don't feel like speed testing firmware. I guess I'll try 115 and if I notice a speed decrease I'll go to 112. That's the last version I was running on my ASUS before going to 116 and it ran nicely.

    The driver remains the same as you can see from Shibby's website http://tomato.groov.pl/?page_id=78 The driver was only updated on K26RT-N which is not used on E3000

    Great. Didn't see that. I've been focusing so much of my attention in my ASUS that I didn't see the footnote. Thanks. I'll flash it tomorrow.
