I intended to replace our Linksys WRT54g with the Netgear N600 WNDR3700v2 but I didn’t have the success I wanted with dd-wrt and the stock firmware doesn’t offer the features like DNS, static DHCP, etc that Tomato and dd-wrt have.
I asked myself “where do we use the wireless the most?” The answer is downstairs. I decided to host the Netgear router downstairs in the home theater cabinet. Finally I turned off the wireless on the WRT54g and keeping it as our router. Now the Mac Book Pro and the Thinkpad get 104+Mbps vs the 5Mbps I was getting before.
