After installing build 52 on my WNR3500L and clearing nvram, both our laptops connect at most at 54 mbit/s. This is when I set network mode to auto; when set to N-only, both laptops do not connect at all. With previous versions of tomato and N-only mode, one laptop connected at 150mbit/s, the other at 2xx mbit/s. (This seems to be the maximum, as the first one has an Intel 4965agn, which can reach 300 mbit/s only with dual band.)

On my Asus RT-N10 with the latest build 52 (std, nousb), N works fine. Both of my computers are connected at 150 Mbit/s.
But 40Mhz channel width must be set in router's configuration menu and WPA/AES as well.
802.11n will not work with tkip encryption enabled.
When I set the channel witdth to 20Mhz, N also works but at 72 Mbit/s.
Look again to the config menu, maybe You missed something after upgrading your firmware..
Thank you, sqlite, for your response. I know all that and my settings are correct; I haven't missed anything.
I just found the problem elsewhere: For reasons I don't understand, the Ubuntu upgrade to version 10.10 must have created the following file which deactivates N-mode on the laptops:
root@think:~# grep 11n_disable /etc/*/*
/etc/modprobe.d/intel-5300-iwlagn-disable11n.conf:options iwlagn 11n_disable=1
I hope this helps other people running into the same problem.
I also use Ubuntu but 10.04 version. I have a Ralink chipset cards so my configs are quite different.
I've found howerver on Ubuntu forums, that the file you've mentioned is an artifact from testing Ubuntu in the OS development.
It should be set to 0 as default. As you can see - it wasn't.
On the Launchpad there is even a bug report about it.
