Obviously you haven't used either.

Tomato is freaking awesome.

when flashed w. DD-WRT, can this be used in "client" mode? aka like a Gaming Adapter, where you plug in a regular ole ethernet cord to device to make it a wireless adapter? I've seen this type of thing sold for game consoles or TV's that aren't wireless...etc

Bit the bullet this time around and ordered one to have on hand. Was able to find an old router for my older G devices and will use this and my E3000 to bridge my media server over N!

Amazon Payments is back as a payment option. I thought I could use my Amazon gift card balance towards the purchase (I had read that you could), but it doesn't give me that option. Frown

The option is still there in tomato in client mode but I can't say for certain it works. I can say WPA2-Personal works though.

Contemplating this, i just bought a refurb router a couple months ago but don't really need this. Is there any application for this besides basic internet shenanigans?

I bought my 4th one recently and started testing the 3rd unit's wireless N capability. I loaded the tomatousb firmware cant seem to maintain 300Mbps, best is from 54-130 Mbps. My laptop is using built in Intel Wireless N device.

Any good settings to make it stable at 300 Mbps?

Thanks.

ah ok. I think if it shows, it should connect. I would rather dd -wrt, seems to be more active

Sounds like you're using it in 20 mhz mode. 300 Mbps (really maxes out at 270) requires a double channel - 40 mhz of bandwidth.
