i agree i use wired as much as posible with the exception of tablets and a notebook.

as to printer sharing, im not sure about about if the N-16 will do it automaticaly but you can try. my canon supports wireless and USB and when i installed the drivers/software for the printer i setup sharing with wireless and works as a network printer but say from the laptop to the printer the frames get routed to the printer from the router.. this leads me to think maybe you do need a network printer, but try first with your epson and the N-16 smile.gif if can be shared with windows but that means you would have to turn a rig on that the printer is connect to in order to print from anothe device

The ASUS RT-N16 should be a decent Router.
You can use port priorites to set which devices you want for priority via Tomato and DD-WRT.
You also get the choice of external antennas, the Broadcom chipset (allows Tomato & DD-WRT Firmware), and also the 128MB of RAM is great.

The amount of devices should be fine and on my Router at home on the 2.4GHZ band I get about 20 megabit around the house.

I think I'll be ordering an RT-N16 tomorrow, I'm putting DD-WRT on there and installing active cooling biggrin.gif. I might even upgrade the PSU and the antenna. I can hardly wait, although the DD-WRT installation guide is hardly straightforward; I'm not looking forward to getting my head around those later.

goodluck dude, im sure once you get into installing dd-wrt you will be fine, it is not as hard as it looks. pretty much the same as updating the default firmware of a router, well not exactly.. anyway if you run into trouble you can always ask on the dd-rt firmware club here on OCN smile.gif

I want to do an active cooling mod similar to the one below however I'm not really confident removing the heatsink to replace it with a copper one frown.gif. I'm sure I'll be able to do DD-WRT it's just that there are conflicting tutorials and reports. Thanks for your help guys. I'll let you know how it turns out.

You can put a simple laptop cooler since it

Since there are vents on the bottom it should be fine.

I have this on a WRT400N which is known to be unstable with high temperatures put that under it and it's been rock solid stable ever since.

I could but that wouldn't qualify for this.

I've ordered the RT-N16 and it's on it's way. Thanks for helping me choose guys, I'll be sure to post the active cooling mod somewhere.
