[Firmware] Linksys E4200 w/ Firmware other than stock.

Hi, I was wondering which firmware would be best for this, I currently have 4 units wanting to put all over my house.

First question, would cranking up the clock speed and broadcast strength kill the router?

Second question, can I plug laptop cooling and place under router to keep heat down if I clock it up?

Third question, if I crank up settings, would the signal quality be lower?

Answer depends on what version it is. If version 1 then there are a number of options, Tomato is what I like. The version 2 does not use the broadcom chip set and there is not the support.
