    I'm sorry if this is questions like this get asked all the time, but I could need an updated recommendation on a stable router. I need it to be able to let me set up 4 VLANs on four of its ports (due to the existing network structure), reasonably high throughput as in 300 Mbit/s or higher and it should preferably support Tomato since I want to set VLAN up through a GUI.

    I assume we're looking at some kind of Broadcom based router like an ASUS RT-U66-N to be able to fulfill all of my expectations. But from what I've read the RT-U66-N has got some issues with LAN ports 3/4 when running VLAN on them?

    Hope you guys can help me out!

    The AC66U and N66U are the fastest supported routers right now, but they will not get 300megabits/sec with Tomato. Support for ARM-based routers is likely coming very soon. Some test builds have been released by the devs. ASUS AC68U is likely going to be supported soon, and will likely be able to handle your bandwidth. If it's not urgent, I'd suggest either giving it a few weeks to see how it goes for others, or be a kind and adventurous soul, buy one now, and run the test build. I'm sure Victek and the others would love the feedback, particularly with your bandwidth.
