So I got this router few years ago (about 3 1/2 years) to install DD-WRT or Tomato on it. I tried both firmwares and decided to stick with Tomato. I never ran on the stock Asus firmware, so I can't comment on it. However, I will not comment on how good the open source firmwares are, but you should give them a go.
Overall I like this router. Easy configuration and you can set up two seperate WiFi network on this router : your own where your computers and other personal device can connect to and another you can use for your friends and others guests when they pop in and that second guest network only allow internet access. Your computers and shared data are protected if accessed by the guest network. Each has their own SSID and password. USB ports also allow maximum network storage with USB storage device or printer server.
I bought this router because it has a lot of ram, is dd-wrt capable (as well as tomato capable, etc.), and has 2 usb 2.0 ports. I installed the Tomato Firmware (the teddy_bear version with USB support) on this router with relative ease. So far, I have attached 1 external hard drive to the router and used it as a network drive; it works really well.
From my brief use of the Asus firmware on routher, I found it lacking a lot of features as well as ugly.
Upgraded to latest Asus firmware, could not get anything above 65 mpbs connection speed. Flashed with EasyTomato, DD-WRT and maximum link speed stayed at 65 mpbs (reported by the router). USB File transfer limited to about 3 MB/sec. Very poor. Upon closer analysis, I found out under tomato that around 60 Mbps, the CPU usage stays at 100%. Considering it uses a 480 Mhz processor, the speed is unacceptable regardless of which firmware you use (DD-WRT/Tomato/Stock). Just google Asus 16N Tomato USB slow and you will get tons of results on Tomato forum from people having the same issue as described above.
Comes with V1 firmware. Easily upgraded it to latest Tomato where BT Transmission works. Could login using Putty and use the NAS, but could not get USB share to appear on Windows 7 network. Have seen other reports of this issue on Tomato. Then upgraded to latest Asus firmware V3 and it is MUCH SUPERIOR to V1 and does everything I want. A USB stick is limited to ~2.5Mbps write speed although read is plenty fast. Added a 2.5" hard drive powered off USB port and no speed issues to the USB NAS. NTFS formatting on the NAS. BT or Usenet NZB downloads saturate my Internet at 5Mbps writing to the NAS. It has a bandwidth monitor that works well. USB NAS share is very simple and works on Windows network. Copying to my PC is at 55Mbps over wired connection.
