I've just picked up an RT-N16, installed Tomato, and am comparing it to an Air Port Extreme. My experiences with the RT-N16 so far: Better range. Numerous advanced features (netmasq is amazing!) Better UI for somethings they both have (static IPs suck to setup on Apple's router) Slightly slower 5 Ghz wireless MUCH slower 2.4 Ghz wireless (1.2 Mb down versus 11 Mb down) No way to dual band 2.4 and 5 Ghz. On the airport, you can enable both 2.4 and 5Ghz for a single wireless network and clients auto-pick whichever they think is faster. In my house that varies based on distance for most devices. Is there any way for Tomato on the RT-N16 to use that kind of dual band instead of two separate networks and making me pick between the two?
