After flashing it with tomato or dd-wrt, is this router still support simultaneous dual band?

In addition, which version of tomato or dd-wrt should i download?

How bad is the range? My area is only about 600 sq ft. Will this router suffice?

I don't need gigabit ports nor USB links. My concerns are range and signal strength.

Update (2/13/13): I finally pulled the trigger and bought this router. Very happy with the purchase even though people said F7D8301 is much better. Range is good, signal strength and throughput are both excellent. Having said that, I am a "low-tech" person. All I want is a stable router with excellent throughput.

Installed DD-WRT. If you need instructions on what to install, google "Belkin F7D4301v1 now partially supported". This is a forum thread. Go to page 17. Read RobNY posts on his F7D8302 (same requirement as F7D4302). If you need details on how to flash DD-WRT, search slickdeals "Belkin N300 Expansys" - this contains very detailed instructions.

After finishing with dd-wrt.v24-17084_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini_f7d4302.bin via CFE, I changed the login name and password when prompt, go to the upgrade tab, upload dd-wrt.v24-18946_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini.bin file and set it to "restore to default settings". Wait 10 minutes. Go to 192.168.1.1 and make sure the build (shown at upper right hand corner) is correct. Unplug the router and then plug it back in. Repeat with dd-wrt.v24-18946_NEWD-2_K2.6_big.bin.

Only difference is one has gigabit wired chipset, the other doesn't. They both have mediocre range and stable operation with Tomato/DD-WRT. I wouldn't pay $29.99 for an F7D8302 with the F7D8301 going for <$25 multiple times in the past.

I personally got 1 DOA one and the next one would shut off after 5 minutes, even after flashing with mini-ddwrt and then shibby tomato.

Thanks for the feedback, does not looks to be a good choice. I went ahead and ordered the WD N750 for 30 bucks on staples.
