Which router for 120mb broadband that supports Tomato

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
After giving up on the crap which is the Superhub provided by VirginMedia I tried out an old WRT54GL with Tomato. . This was brilliant, Wifi now works flawlessly and so does WOL. I also set up a VPN and IPv6 using the router. The problem is that the poor CPU (overclocked from 200Mhz to 250Mhz) just can't cope with the speeds. Torrents max out at a sustained 42 Mb and Usenet can only sustain 23Mb.

?dm=OEMM

Which good value router should I short-list that supports Tomato and not bottleneck 120Mb broadband?

Yes, very sure. In the U.K on VirginMedia cable we can now get 120Mb (I used to have 100Mb).

This is home not business I'm assuming? then either that, or you could use a small computer and run a firewall box like untangle, or just use IP tables on 2 ports on a linux box.

I would have to say the E3000 if you want a Dual Band Router.
For Single band you can use the Netgear 3500L, or the ASUS-N16

If you don't mind using a derivative of OpenWRT or DD-WRT i'd say the Netgear WNDR3700.

http://tomatousb.org/doc:build-types - Here is a list of the Routers that are supported with Tomato
http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/lanwan/router-charts/bar/74-wan-to-lan - You can use this to reference the WAN to LAN speeds you would be getting.

The E3000, WNR3500L are at the 250 megabit ball park
N16U (150) are at the 150 megabit ball park
The Netgear WNDR3700 is about that 400 megabit ball park.

And i'm jealous that you guys have that over there. I'm at 65 megabit peak and 28 megabit avg now.
