Re: Mediacom now charging for bandwidth?

I'm in need of a new router. I have Ultra 50 now and with the need to monitor bandwidth, Should I look at DD-WRT or something else?
I have a Netgear WNDR 3700v.3 and the wireless on ultra 50 is complete crap. (Wired things are amazing) Advice?
(My Internet 15Mb was going to $50 so Chad set me up for a year on Ultra for not much more)

I'd slap dd-wrt on it anyway. It did wonders for my bro-in-law's Belkin and improved it in many ways, including operating several laptops and 5 xboxes without a hitch.

The old stock firmware could barely handle 2 xboxes and a couple laptops.

EDIT: The WNDR3700v3 is supported by Brainslayer. »www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/download···00v3.chk
After that flash, you could go std or big.

Hmm, I can't seem to find the standard builds as it says the 3700v.3 isn't supported??

I gave you the link to the latest Brainslayer build above. You can usually flash the mini build then flash it to the std or big build.

The WNDR3700v3 should be in there as a chk file. After you're done flashing it initially, you can upgrade it to a std or big build.

This is ridiculous setting a limit on cable internet. Granted 250GB is a lot but it's the point of it. Glad I'm not wasting my money on them anymore.
