    I was going to get the Asus N-16. For the last 3-4 days. I have gone through 2 different routers. WNDR3700 v2 latest firmware which had the slow loading page problem. And when making changes. It was way to slow. Took it back for a E3000. Ran great but was way to hot. You could cook breakfast on it. A common issue that is hit/miss which is why I gave it a try. I happen to be unlucky and got a scorcher unit. I did not trust it being alone or in the summer time. Took that back as well. About to give up and was going for the Asus N-16. I had been reading about the Linksys E4200 having issues. I don't know if these people are not setting them up properly or what. I was buying into it and almost passed on this E4200. It was so close you have no idea. But mine has been rock solid though. And it runs warm. Not super hot like the E3000. I cannot say enough about this router. It is pricey yes. But, worth every penny considering it just came out not to long ago. I have been hammering this thing watching hd videos, streaming, game consoles etc. It is quite the work horse and keeps on chugging along with out breaking a sweat.

    The stock firmware is very stable. I am extremely impressed especially being a new release. I am telling you guys. You would be very happy with this router. Especially knowing that Tomato is coming soon for it. I know its working a bit now for it but a little rough? Especially with 5ghz not working yet. Not the fault of developers though since Linksys has not released the driver code apparently. I am also on cable using a Motorola SB6120 with channel bonding enabled through my isp. So that even adds more to the overall performance. :biggrin: I cannot wait until Tomato really takes off with this router. Going to be some exciting stuff! Feel like I am back home again and will always stay with Linksys from now on. I will also not move away from Tomato either. This is my 3rd Linksys router purchased over time.
