I am not sure if I can post this here but I need some opinions on purchasing of a new router. My e3000 went to shit and doesn't turn on anymore because of a power outage at my house. I am thinking of purchasing an Asus RT-N16 (using TomatoUSB) or the new Asus RT-N56U (using stock since it is Ralink base). I am leaning towards the RT-16 because I can use TomatoUSB. Although, RT-N56U has a nifty feature called "Ai Radar" that is interesting to try out. What do you guys think?
personally id wait a month or two. Reason is the replacement for the RT-N16, the RT-N76U, is suspected to be announced my asus soon, and I have been saving up to get it to replace my RT-N16. That said, there is nothing wrong with my RT-N16. I love everything about it, except the lack of the simultaneous duel band, and that's why i am waiting for the N76u, as it is suspected to be thew exact same as the RT-N16, except with simultaneous duel band.

the new 76U is still broadcom, so hopefully in time it will be tomatoUSB supported! :) (would love to help get it ported once i get my hands on one)
