I got an Asus RT-N16 a few days ago, flashed with the newest build of Toastman's, and have been tweaking and reading up on what I should do.
These questions are spurred on because I have some strange behavior when enabling QoS on the N16. Sometimes the various wireless devices slow to a crawl. Other times, A OK. I've fiddled with a lot of the tweaks mentioned elsewhere (including a new USB wirelesss stick for a laptop with Intel), and hope to alleviate some issues from that. But this is a potential next step.
I ran into some threads suggesting to just disable the routers wireless and get an AP. Now, what are the best options out there? One question I had specifically, and I'm entirely unsure what others stance on it will be, is one of Apple's Airport Express'. Would that work as simply a wireless AP combined with Tomato? I figure it should be fairly barebones, and a lot of the devices on the network are Apple and should play nice.
I should note, this is simply a home network with a hand full of users. All with relatively above average usage, but just looking for something more stable than the past. Also, my wired devices are running fantastic.
