Asus RT-N16 and Tomato?
I'm curious to hear opinions on the RT-N16 with Tomato. Would this be the router for me, or anything newer that's better?
I have a spare external USB HDD; if I can get it to download torrents when my computers are off; that'd be great.
Moreover, to act as a share drive over the network. Obviously it'll be slower than a true NAS, but what kind of speeds can I expect?
Would I be able to use it as a backup solution?
Can I stream a 1GB 2hr video file?
A quick search tells me people get anywhere from 4-10MB/s .... not too shabby if I can get 4+MB/s consistently. The first backup will be annoyingly long but subsequent backups should be okay.
Or maybe I should just grab a DNS-320 and a couple of 3TB drives .... $$$.
