Would I be correct in assuming that thermal tape isn't as efficient as thermal paste?

Yeah or pick up some permanent thermal grease (to the same effect)

Though thermal tape would be much easier to work with.

Thanks for sharing Dzilla. Makes me wish I had AC at home

Now according to those pics you posted, is 12.5Mb per second about as fast as your transfer speeds get?

That is with DD-WRT.

Channel Bonding doesn't work when I tried it.

With the Stock Firmware I get 19.5MB/s

And that is with a 300mbps N card.

Are you going to upgrade to that AC gigabyte intel card that you linked as a recommendation?

I'm not up to speed on those cards, but wouldn't it be possible to get an AC laptop card and just plug it into the side?

A bit off topic, it would be cool if they made video cards like that for laptops that you could just slide into the side to upgrade.

But may try to find a adapter.
I know your pain. I put a 7260 half mini in my D630. It has a full size slot but I found that if i put the half sized card in that when I reinstalled the keyboard, it held it in place

Thinking this might do the trick.

My Laptop has access to everything from the bottom.

Also Kinda wish they made a 3x3 AC card for laptops, as I have three antennas.

Edit: Just picked up the 7260 and bracket, so will be testing that as soon as I get it.

They do make express slot wireless cards, but I don't like to use them.

Works solid as ever still. WiFi never drops a connection, which is nice.

I gave up on DD-WRT, Could never get channel bonding to work. So that mean it would only work in 20hz mode, which sucks.

Moving back to the stock Linksys firmware was pretty easy, and for the most part works good.

Can always use another router if you wanted and just use this with the stock firmware as a AP.

Never needed to use the Serial cable for it, but have used them on older Netgear equipment. For the most part I haven't seen the need to use it on this router yet.
