Re: [Internet] Questions on Router Performance

I agree with BHNtechXpert your bandwidth looks pretty rock solid. I think you should upgrade to ASUS router as BHNtechXpert suggested. When you have all those computers and devices on your network you need a nice high end Router with plenty of power under the hood to run everything flawlessly. One more suggestion I just thought of just now for shits n giggles login to your Current Router and Disable QOS sometimes that Helps. Honestly with Lightning you really dont need QOS turned on QOS is located under applications & Gaming look for QOS and find "internet access priority" Turn it off Its been so long since I have used a Linksys hehehe Double check that...

I want to thank you for the time and really going the extra mile to ensure everything checks out. A+ in my book!

Based on the findings and recommendation I will be looking at the ASUS RT-N56U and update with the custom firmware.

Thanks again for all the help!

The current flavor of Padavans firmware is awesome....that's what I run on mine.

Gary hehehehe You love your ASUS RT-N56U just as much as I love my Asus RT-N66U Gary Honestly they worked out most of the bugs with the N66U both with the latest ASUS firmware and Tomato firmware from shibby , They fixed the NVRAM 32>64 Issue like 6 months ago and fixed alot of bugs. Everything is smooth as silk now.

I would love to have my N66U go head to head with your N56U someday hehehe. But Either Router would most likely out perform a Linksys or a Dlink-655 on Benchmark Tests anyday
But yea the RT-N56U is still awesome and is $50 cheaper over the RT-N66U

Yes but consumer sentiments haven't changed quite yet...once I see the trending upwards like the good old 56 then I will go buy one and add this to the list of monsters. Lets give it til March and I'll revisit the 66. I tend to play things very conservative once things have gone bad the first time and the launch of the 66 was a disaster...I was truly shocked Asus allowed that to happen.

Gary I fully agree with you on that Asus allowed that to happen To be honest I think ASUS used alot of fixes for their latest firmware from the help of 3rd party open source firmware Coders lol

Well there is nothing wrong with that when you think about it. Good things come from those who have the time and resources to tinker and they don't mind sharing for the common good. Asus and other companies should not fear private innovation that improves their products.

ASUSWRT-Merlin Reviewed

This look's like an interesting read.

ASUSWRT-Merlin firmware for the popular ASUS RT-N66U Dark Knight.

The primary goals of this project are to fix bugs, add a few basic features and tweaks to the original firmware. This firmware will try to remain as close as possible to the original firmware. If you are looking for a slew of advanced features, then this project is not for you. Look at TomatoUSB or DD-WRT, two excellent products that might suit your needs better.

If however you prefer something as close as possible to the manufacturer's firmware, then this is for you.

Yes I've tried Merlin's firmware for ASUS RT-N66U I had no issues with it, its like the Asus Firmware but with Extra settings and performance tweaks and fixes. Out of all the firmware for ASUS RT-N66U I chose to stick with Tomato by Shibby
Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-104 K26 USB AIO-64K
Everything just works great and its so stable I love it
