    Hi everyone,
    is there any chances for a release that will work on TP-LINK TL-WDR4900 in the near future? I allready upgrade my subscription to a 1000 mbps and I don't think that my old ASUS RT-N16 can handle properly such a WAN speed connection.
    For the moment I have 2 options, TP-LINK TL-WDR4900 or ASUS RT-N66U, but I'm leaning to first one, of course, for being at an affordable price, a powerfull processor and a similar performance.
    I saw that there's a DD-WRT option for TP-LINK, but I'm acustomed to Shibby's Tomato and that DD-WRT release have always problems with random crashes.
    I know that there's a much more interest in Broadcom SOC's, but i saw interest in other SOC's too.
    Thank's for your answers.

    TL-WDR4900 is Atheros based so no support from Tomato.
    If you want 1Gbs then you have to choose professional equipment.

    x86 based may able to handle such connection

    Both routers can handle that speed, well, almost... I think somewhere around 940 mbps. I don't think x86 is something bad, but definitely can be more expensive to build or I should pay a monthly bill for electricity that is not in my budget.
