I bought the Asus RT-N16 because I wanted a powerful N router with custom firmware capabilities and a USB port. This router met all of those expectations and I haven't been let down yet. The first thing I did when I opened the box was install Tomato on this router. For a couple months I was using it as a bridge + wireless print server and it worked wonderfully. Recently I have replaced my Verizon FIOS Actiontec router with this one and I couldn't be happier. I NEVER drop connection, no matter what I'm doing (torrents, video, online gaming) and I never have to reboot the router. My upstairs computer is now using an Linksys E2000 as a bridge and the connectivity between the Asus and the Linksys (both running Tomato) is as stable as anyone could hope. Strong signal, fast speeds and most importantly... reliable.
