one more question its not related to the price

but which third party firmware is better tomato or DD WRT

i have heard alot about both and am confused about which one to use


#11

well ruhaan i use both i use DDWRT v24 final which just came out couple of days on on wrt54g and tomato on wrt54gl, both are good upgrade from the generic firmware, DD-WRT is easy to navigate and has many extra options but uptil v24 RC7 the DD-WRT had trouble handling full speed torrents and browsing speed which has resolved to a much extent in the final version, but my tomato firmware although takes a lil getting used to has been working beautifully with torrents and browsing together. But now they are kinda on even grounds heard abt some issue in QoS of DD_wrt, but that's it..... so its ur own choice...... personally i use both and both are em a good upgrade on the generic version :)..... if u have anyother queries of the details, just email me :)

WRT54G is being sold at Galaxy for Rs. 4000. Is it a fair price?


#13

what is the version number?


#14

no idea about version, and i just checked they have dropped the price to 3600 Rs. and the link is pointing to this page

#15

well yeah that is the general specs of WRT54G mist probably it wud v8, this is the price of GL model, which is couple of hundred bucks more expensive then the simple G version but its not entirely unreasoanable


#16

so galaxy is most probably selling GL @ 3600


#17

well from what i saw its the simple G version
