I finally decided it was time to replace my WRT56GL and WRT54G routers and join the 802.11n club! I originally purchased a pair of Netgear WNDR3700 routers but unfortunately they had range and signal strength issues. Updating Netgear’s firmware and using DD-WRT didn’t help so I decided to return them and purchase two ASUS RT-N66U routers from JR.com
. I thought you guys might like to see the before and after results and enjoy the network pr0n.
See ASUS' ASUS RT-N66U
product page for a quick overview and complete specifications. You can test drive ASUS' firmware here
This is what my network looks like.
My new Primary Router is using ASUS’ Firmware Version: 126.96.36.199.90 and the new Client Bridge is using TomatoUSB Firmware Version 1.28 by shabby.
I used LAN Speed Test to measure the Wireless Bridge Link’s 2GHz file transfer and network speeds. Here's the best out of 3 runs.
The before speeds are embarrassing.
I also created a folder with 612Mb worth of random files and used Robocopy to measure the Wireless Bridge Link’s 2GHz file transfer and network speeds. Here's the best out of 3 runs.
My Excel skills cannot be equalled.
