Linksys E2500 Versus Linksys E3200 Running With Tomato

    I am thinking about upgrading from my E2500 v1 to a E3200 as I have been having some stability issues with more than 4-6 wireless connections at a time on my E2500 router. The problems appear to be hardware related and a reboot of the router always fixes it eventually, but having to reboot all the time isn't the ideal solution.

    I will probably just buy a second hand used one and at first I had thought about getting an E2500 v3 since I understand they are more stable than the older v1 I have. But then I realized that a used E3200 can be had for the same price as an E2500 and would be newer generation hardware than just getting a never version of an E2500. The E3200 doesn't appear to be that much different though than the E2500 in terms of overall specs, just has more internal antennas I believe, which might send out a bit of a better wireless signal as well.

    I was wondering if there are any major disadvantages or general problems that anyone is aware of when running Tomato on an E3200 versus an E2500 and if I would perhaps see much better performance and stability on an E3200 over an E2500 if I upgrade?

    Many thanks...
