So yeah, I ordered the ASUS RT-N66U
Main reason I did so, was this comparison chart
i actually really thought my current router supported Gigabit speeds, but it does not. No wonder file transfers between my networked computers have been much slower since I changed ISP's
As everything else in my home network, all switches etc., are definitely Gigabit. So my router should be as well.
So that was one motivation.
The other was the potential Data Range / Speed bump I should also hopefully achieve.
So for people who own this Asus router, is the Merlin firmware (suggested on Page 1 of this thread) the suggested route to go?
Or is there Hyper DRT or whatever that firmware is called? Etc. Definitely open to hearing what the best firmware out there is, and or do I just stick to the stock firmware (which I am more then willing to do, considering I am not a power user by any means, but perhaps I will become one)
