does dd-wrt support 5GHZ and 2.4GHZ band or just 2.4GHZ band? What was the 300 deals?

With DDWRT, this is supposed to be a great router

You won't use the stock firmware on this - you have to use tomato or dd-wrt.

$8 bucks more than the N300 for Dual Band = Hot! Considering how hot that deal ended up being, I would jump on this right away before it ends or run out!

stradlin said: Bought one. Dual band for $30 can't be beat. Better deal than the N300 for $22, IMO...I would have to agree. The dual band (5Ghz) is great for those who like to stream videos/movies.

Considering how hot that deal ended up being, I would jump on this right away before it ends or run out!Plus it's new, not refurbed like the N300 deal. So you get the full manufacturer's warranty. Although it shows 1year on the site, I think Belkin offers 2 years on it.
Just recntly bought the ShareMax N300 and flashed Tomato. But, I could definitely use the dual band as I live in apartment building where my laptop picks up 40 other wifi signals, all of which are on 2.4 ghz. But I won't get this unless I know exactly which version of Tomato supports the router and if the dual bands will work with that version.

That deal was NEVER for refurbished units.. All the ones I ordered were brand new..

I can't pull up any information on a version 2.. If this router is version 1, then it has similar hardware specs as the N300 version.. You should be able to use the same Tomato firmware you use on the N300..

Can someone explain to me why in the world of blue balls would someone run tomato instead of the great and mighty dd-wrt?

If I remember right from the N300 thread on here there are a few things the tomato firmware supported that the dd-wrt firmware didn't
Red mouth: because the QOS in Tomato is vastly superior. QED.

I've got the 300 as the main router after the modem and its been very stable. using Tomato Firmware v1.28.0498 MIPSR2-Toastman-VLAN-RT-N K26 USB VPN. up for 54 days so far
Any one have issues with Dell laptops connecting to it? Its slower than 56k when I connect using the Dell (Win 7 32bit, DW1501 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card) Says broadcom. Network mode is on G only, not mix mode. all other devices ios's HP laptop, kindle, work fine with it.
2nd - the 300 range sucks. Is the N600 range better? My Asus N12 has a larger range than the 300. Thought about converting the internal intennas to Externals...
