    Hello Everyone,

    I have 2 of the WRT54G's both running tomato with no issues. Awesome hardware and software. As I survey my family's devices we only have one laptop that still runs a G radio.. All other devices have N radios but we are not utilizing the N functionality of any at present. The two 54G's are still up and running what great work horses they have been and still are! However we all crave speed, pay more for speed and technology moves forward.. So my question to all you peeps in the know????

    What super seeds the 54g to the now N standard??
    Is it the RT-N16? or ??

    Thanks looking forward to reading and making a wise purchase for our family =0)

    I would wait for the E4200 v2.

    I would also hang ten and see what the Linksys E4200 v2 has to offer.
    Having the Linksys E4200 v1 myself I have found it very stable with Tomato Toastman firmware.
    The current Linksys E4200 v1 doesn't quite have the WiFi range I'd like and less than I've seen in old Linksys models like the WAP4400N

    I have a RT-N12(Didn't need the usb ports on the N16, so I figured I'd save the money.) I don't do much p2p, just the family's wifi connections--laptops, rokus, idevices...
    For the most part, it is ok, but it randomly seems to loose wireless. I have it set to reboot weekly and that cuts down on the number of times I have to pull the plug on it.
    Also, the wireless is a bit lacking for my setup. We have a sunroom at the opposite end of the house and wireless is sometimes very slow out there. I ordered some larger antennas hoping that will help. I may just have to put a repeater out there...

    You should have gotten the N16.

    I have two RT-N16's serving as the main router at two 100+ room hotels.

    The thing is bullet proof.

    Why? What's the difference--besides the USB?
    Better hardware? Better range?

    I'm happy with my e2000, but looking back on it, I should have got the e3000

    Better hardware, better supported by Tomato modders.
