No B/G/N mixed mode available on TomatoUSB ND

    Hey guys, title says it all. I decided to upgrade from my wonderful WRT54Gv4 to the RT-N12 that I had lying around and installed TomatoUSB ND K26. Problem is, I can't seem to find a B/G/N mixed mode setting in Tomato. I can either choose Auto, B only, G only, N only, or B/G mixed. Is there a Tomato build that I can grab that will allow for B/G/N mixed mode support?

    What does Auto do? Is that the equivalent of B/G/N or is it some other setting?

    What speeds am I limiting myself to if I go for B/G/N support?

    Yes Auto is equivalent to b/g/n mixed mode.

    Thanks for your help. Hmm, why didn't they just call it that instead?

    Oh well - what are the downsides of staying in this mixed mode? A quick Google search says that I'll probably hit a data transfer cap of about 100 Mbps for my N devices if I stay in this mode.

    Is there any way to minimize this or would I have to use a separate AP for B/G mixed and stick to N-only if I want maximum wireless throughput?

    yes your transfer rates will be decrease when any device with B or G mode connects to your wifi network... so use N mode if you can
