Open source wireless-N gigabit router

When would a open source wireless-N gigabit router arrive? Preferably a Broadcom device so that I could run tomato firmware on it. Do include a fast CPU and larger amount of RAM so that it could be a traffic manager on my network!

Just imagine an open source system that does QoS based on protocol analysis  instead of ports! Fast CPU and large amount of RAM so that it would be a snappy device. Gigabit ports to future proof it. Woot!

I’m still dreaming.

    I recently purchased the Linksys N310 router that has Wireless-N and gigabit ports. It is also supported by DD-WRT that can do QoS as well. Had it for a few months now and absolutely no problems.

    I also recently purchased the DNS-343. You know of any way to control the LCD?

    I meant the WRT310N for that Linksys router.

    sbockelman,

    Does it support tomato firmware? dd-wrt’s QoS implementation is quite bad in my opinion.

    I have not tried tomato before on it. I would assume it does work, they are designed for the same platforms.

    nevermind on the tomato. I looked at their supported list and it looks like it is only for the wrt54 series of routers.
