I'm not even sure how old it is. I've used Tomato v1.27 for most of those years. Should it ever perish though, I'm wondering if there would be a noticeable speed difference with an "N" router hard wired to the desktop? I'm assuming 20mb/s is carried by this ole girl just fine and other than a router with the advantage USB ports for network storage, another one in this price range would be fine. Thank you!
