Forum thoughts on TP-Link routers?

    Hey all,

    So, for quite some time I've been set on an ASUS RT-N66U. Financially, that's becoming increasingly difficult.

    But I've recently received the SamKnows FCC router; it's a single-antenna TP-Link, just passively monitoring activity at the moment. Runs some speed/ping tests when network activity is low. supposedly open source compatible, and running a custom firmware right now.

    And there are a few other, decent-looking 802.11N routers they make, which are about a third the price of the venerable RT-N66U at the moment.

    Anyone using Tomato on a TP-Link? Any suggestions for model(s) to look at?

    Tomato supports only Broadcom chipsets. Tp-Links usually have different chipset on board.
    I think there's not even one Tp-Link that runs tomato.
