I really wish Newegg had the wdr4300 in stock. If they don't have it by tomorrow I may just purchase this one. I probably wont notice a speed difference between the two since I am upgrading from a Linksys WRT54G.

Got my WDR3600, flashed it with latest Gargoyle, and it's working great. Happy with the purchase.

I seem to get a fluctuation in my 2.4Ghz channel in dual band. My 5 Ghz seems solid. I thought gargoyle might help but it did only a little (both connections seem stronger than before). Anyone else having this issue or know a remedy? My one gripe about gargolye is that i cant seem to configure the two bands seperatley like with the stock firmware.

Try openwrt ffirmware with Luci. It may work better.

I'm not sure if I'm in the same boat but I can't get the 2.4 GHz band to act consistently (or even be usable). With a device a few feet from the router, the signal will toggle from excellent to fair to no signal (all in less than a minute), and I can't connect for more than about 5 seconds if it's showing excellent or fair. Weird. The latest firmware didn't help.

I've been considering modding it, but I'm not sure that this will help with the consistency.

how about the rebate? I submitted my rebate in early December 2012, but still cannot find it through rapid-rebates.com. Does anyone find your rebate received?

I found mine online today (first time i checked). this was because I received an email from tp-link asking me if I received my rebate yet and if not, to contact them for any assistance (WOW). my rebate status is still processing, so I'll give it a couple of weeks. Also, this was purchased on ebay but I asked contacted newegg through ebay and asked if they could email a pdf newegg invoice since I needed to submit it for business and they immediately did. so, I'm guessing tp-link rebate center won't have any problem.

I first installed gargoyle but none of the settings would "commit" even after hitting save/apply/recycling the router, so I flashed trusty old dd-wrt but the 5ghz band won't show up, only the 2.4ghz band would be visible on my dual band nic. anyway, since the 2.4ghz band is super stable & nets me transfer speeds of 7mbps or higher consistently (across lan), I didn't bother about the 5ghz which was the main reason I bought it in the first place. I'm just very happy with the 2.4ghz band for now and will probably mess around with it once dd-wrt comes up with a better firmware. also, I sold my asus rt-n16 on ebay once I got this and it was a good thing since it didn't give as good transfer speeds as this.
