    I read where I could use the tomato firm wear (shibby) I installed on my e3200 link sys to over clock my router. (love the firm wear by the way)
    1. will this help?
    2. I have yet to find out the values that are correct for this router. Have spent some time looking. Does anyone have any values to safely over clock the E3200 Link Sys router?

    Thanks. I only take this step after doing quite a bit of searching.

    Will it help with what? ;-)
    If your CPU is maxed out (run the top command in a telnet or ssh session while reproducing the problem, see if it's close to 100% or load over 1) then you might squeeze an extra 5-10% more throughput by overclocking. If it's an unrelated problem like erratic 5GHz performance, then don't bother overclocking.

    As for the risk to the router, there's a famous quote about it, calling it "an uncontrolled experiment in better than worst-case conditions." If the processor stays cool and you don't go overboard, you might not brick your router.

    Thanks for the reply. I read an article about getting the most out of tomato and it suggested over clocking. I am of the "if it aint broke don't fix it" school of tech. Your reply was along the same lines and helpful. Thanks so much. I just thought I would look into the "more power" possibly. (tim taylor grunt) OHHH OHH OHH!
