    Hi guys,
    I've held off buying the Asus RT-N16 in the hope that a better range of routers from the likes of Linksys and Buffalo will be launched. So far its been pretty slow and Tomato development has also slowed in the last 6 months as Jon is busy doing other things.

    I'm using 85mbps homeplugs in the house and want to step up to gigabit-homeplugs; rather than adding a gigabit-switch, I'd like to swap my router for one with gigabit plugs. I'm not too bothered about N-wireless.

    What router options are available? Or is the Asus RT-N16 the only one to go with?

    If i do end up having to buy a Asus RT-N16, do i need to get a specific version? (i think we needed v1, has this changed?)

    - I'm not interested in DD-wrt.
    - Not too fussed about USB ports. I have NAS and will scale up storage/print options using other methods.

    I look forward to your input.
    Happy new year!!

    I am an owner of the ASUS rt-16n and I actually think it scales over the Linksys and Buffalo series, but Linksys does have a gigabit router that can run Tomato if for whatever reason a brand name is what you are seeking. But you specifically need v2 of the wrt160n, also there is an E3000 model. See the complete list here of compatible devices, it can help you choose.
