Is it me or does anyone else have NO devices that will connect to the 5 GHz band? I have a Lenovo laptop that is only a few years old that has N but won't connect.

N has both 2.4 and 5,,,, yours may only support 2.4

My few year old Sony Vaio is like that.

My year old MBA uses it and my Galaxy Nexus cell phone. My Desktop needs a new card, no 5Ghz there. Frown

Never needed it for Tomato personally. I gave up on DD-WRT a long time ago when it started getting bloated and hacky. I think the purpose was to make sure the NVRAM was really cleared, but was really overkill. OpenWrt doesn't rely on NVRAM to store settings (nor do Atheros routers with stock firmware I believe).
I guess people have been using that for so long now that it's almost like a religious thing. laugh out loud Thanks for the info.

I have installed openWRT and it's running great.
How do I access router USB? Connected flash drive but I can't seem to find a way to access it.

yea. most new stuff supports it.

though my 4 year old thinkpad supports it. odd, because I don't remember noticing that when I bought it.

OpenWrt is pretty barebones by default, which is good and bad. Good because it's lean, bad because you need to install packages to do most anything. The Wiki really covers most things well though. See here for USB and network share support: http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/usb.overview

You want Samba for Windows network sharing.

Don't agree. Brand new Asus Vivobook. No support for Dual Band. I had to buy a card with dual band support. Intel 6235, I believe. Works well with this router.

This router works well, although I couldn't get the 5GHz to work with the OpenWRT image linked in the wiki post. I am running the latest Gargoyle and it works well, although a little buggy. Changing to some channels causes the 5GHz radio to fail.

I like this router better than the WNDR3700 that it is replacing. I did throughput tests with NetStress and found the TP-Link to be about 20-30% faster. That's what I expected with the external antennas vs. internal. What's with that trend? I hope it's over.

Couldn't afford the N66U. This is a great alternative. Very happy. Never have run OpenWRT, but looking forward to playing around with it.

Thanks OP!

I hooked up my external drive to the router and the maximum write transfer speed from laptop to hdd I got was 2.20 MBps while the other way it was 4.50 MBps. Any tips on how to improve these speeds? I'm on stock firmware.

Flashed with the Gargoyle fw and I'm rockin. Getting a little over 15MBps over 802.11n 5ghz Big Grin Been transferring stuff from my old HTPC to my laptop all day (around 500GB) and I haven't gotten any hiccups or hangups. My old Linksys would've barfed if I tried to do that. Even weirder that the CPU utilization of the router doesn't seem to budge when transferring massive amounts of data through encrypted wireless. Don't think I've seen a SOHO router ever do so well. Yay!

What dual band card on client, and on router what channel are you using?

I'm using an Intel 6235 and I'm getting 8-8.5MBps on channel 157, 40MHz 2nd Chan above on the latest Gargoyle.

I have a Ralink RT3592 802.11n dual band card. I needed this specific one because HP is stupid and has a white-list of accepted wifi cards embedded in a lot of their newer laptop BIOSes. I'm using 40mhz/2nd chan above/channel 36. I have absolutely nobody using 5ghz in my area which is nice.

For those who used both OpenWRT and Gargoyle, which one do you prefer and why? I know that Gargoyle runs on top of OpenWRT, I am trying to decide which one to use.

Gargoyle is easier to use. I'd go with that unless you have a specific need for full blown OpenWrt.
