Hi gonzo,

As the TrendNet and Linksys are pretty close in the important specs (300 mbps, WPA2 and output power), I'd recommend the Linksys, as it's compatible with DD-WRT.



Unfortunatley, the Asus is limited to 150 mbps.

Case:Fractal Design Node 605
APU:AMD Richland A10-6700
RAM:8GB AMD 1866
Board:ASUS A88XM Plus
Storage:OCZ 256 GB Vector
Optical:Panasonic Slim BDR
PS:Silverstone Strider 550 Gold SFF
Software:WMC8+LAV+madVR+MPC-HC
Input:Logitech K400 mini KB/trackpad+Harmony 720
Output:Sammy 55" S6 LED LCD+Yamaha soundbar

Cool. Thanks for the info. Here I thought only the Asus was compatible with DD-WRT. I will go with the Linksys then.

Good question, not sure about Tomato, I've only had the time to flash to, and use DD-WRT...
