    I have an nt-r16 that I am using dual wan for in Tomato. Unfortunately, the nt-r16 doesn't support quad wan. I also want better usb storage performance and the best way to get that is with a faster cpu on the router. I know that some routers like the Netgear 3200 have a dual core 1ghz chip but are there any routers that have a 1.4ghz chip? Basically, are there any newer routers that support tomato?

    Not sure what is the "most" powerful router supported by tomato these days (never compared them all side by side, but you can always go to wikidevi.com for those purposes). But a good starting point is to see exactly what is supported by FreshTomato under ARM processors.

    RT-AC3200 is quite good (see my signature).

    I've just upgraded from an AC66U (single core 600Mhz) to an R7000 (dual core 1Ghz), primarily so that I could enable tomato QOS on my highly asymmetric but very stable 170Mb/10Mb connection. The AC66U could only manage about 80Mb on the downstream with QOS enabled.

    When overclocked to 1.2Ghz the R7000 just manages to provide the full 170Mb downstream bandwidth with QOS enabled, and it seems completely stable at this frequency.

    As a bonus the R7000's wifi signal is much stronger than the AC66U it replaced.
