    There are a few people complaining about the rt-n16 (even with tomato!)

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductReview.aspx?Item=N82E16833320038

    so would the real slim shady please stand up.... & please post your feedback if you're running tomato (teddy_bear mod) on a asus rt-n16! & yes, I know it's still a work in progress..

    currently using a wrt54g-tm - very happy - but would love to feel some Gb + N tomato love!! & maybe i just need a few trustworthy references to share their experiences before i breakout the paypal account..

    & I'm sure there are a few others out there sitting on the fence ready to throw some money asus's way

    & if anyone knows where to get the rt-n16 cheap? that too would be appreciated! but, let's try to keep that quiet & just between us tomato enthusiasts & not tell those dd-peeps, eh?

    I run this router in large apartment blocks with many users, QOS enabled, several L7 filters, on 24/7. I did have problems finding a modem that could actually work with sustained full ADSL2+ speeds, but now that I have one, this router has been very stable. Mine are manufactured in December 2009 and do not overheat.

    I don't use the USB facilities or wireless.

    Armand1234, it wasn't a matter of "picking" :)

    I wanted to get one with Broadcom chipset to try, which have the best reputation, but couldn't find one. I eventually found a Hatari Wireless modem/router which has Trendnet chipset, and this one is fine after fitting with a fan. It is in an extremely small box and overheats. But I have other modem/routers (Zyxel) using the same chipset that are useless.

    Most modems I had access to wouldn't provide sustained 16Mbps throughput, some others which did, would not reconnect automatically if they lost ADSL sync. So far the Hatari is the only one I have that is satisfactory. But since it was a "giveaway" with one of the ISP promotions, I can't get any more. Still looking ...
