Hello - I have not been here in awhile since I installed Tomato on my Linksys E3000 several years ago. I use a Victek firmware and it has been working fine 24/7 for years and so I have moved on to other hobbies. Just a couple days ago my Comcast service was automatically upgraded to double the speed so now I get 120mbps down and 20mbps up. My E3000 connecting to our iPad and my Android phone is faster than it was even on 2.4G but I am wondering if my old hardware of E3000 is limiting us in any way. Also my range is not that great on the E3000 - it is OK but when I get up to our bedroom the signal is weaker and speed is slower. I have read all these rave reviews of the WRT1900AC as the second coming of christ, and they are talking about the incredible power and range that this router offers. QUESTION - do you think there is something in the hardware or software of an E3000 vs a newest generation router that is limiting my wifi speeds? Would a newest generation router noticeably increase my wifi RANGE too? If things have really advanced in the past 3 years then I am happy to spend $200 on a new router. If I will end up with basically the same throughput and range with a new router as I am getting on an E3000, then I would save my money. Thanks for your thoughts!
