The RT-N16 is a not the best choice for running OpenVPN using DD-WRT.

Giles Brown "Giles of Warwick", Amazon
5 November 2014
  • Summary: The recommended builds of DD-WRT are too old for the latest configuration settings for OpenVPN (from say BolehVPN and StrongVPN). Although newer builds are available they seem to have issues. The router is likely to be underpowered for stronger encryption. Although it is a gigabit router - it's not capable of anywhere near these speeds from WAN - LAN.

This router is GREAT!

Homer P Simpson, Amazon
12 March 2014
  • Summary: This router runs great right out of the box. The N wireless has good speeds for iPad, iPhone, Android devices and laptops. Should you want something more flexible, you can load DD-WRT onto the router. This gives you the ability to make the router an extender or have it connect to a VPN, setup an FTP server or setup VPN server to connect to.

Works Great

Roland, Amazon
13 February 2014
  • Summary: Very happy with this purchase. Great extra router that I was able to program with a US IP address using a VPN. Great to receive US (or any foreign) content on Netflicks or other geo-location sensitive media. Use it with Apple TV or Playstation/Xbox.

Perfect for Tomato USB custom firmware

Amazon Customer, Amazon
16 January 2014
  • Summary: Previously bought one of these for QOS after lots of research from an ebay seller. After being scammed and waiting for a refund, only to have to reorder from another ebay seller, it arrived and it worked great. It's pretty each to flash with Tomato and works very well. So the moment I knew I was in a similar situation I went straight to Amazon, bought and received in a short wait, and chucked on Tomato. Extremely happy.

Take control!

Greywolf, Amazon
6 November 2013
  • Summary: This router can be flashed to run Tomato USB, the open source router firmware. Suddenly it goes from having the restricted functions usually found on a consumer router, to having the full set of capabiiies you expect on a business-grade router.

Excellent at what it does but for the price it could offer more

B. Smyth "smyth86", Amazon
17 June 2013
  • Summary: I needed a white router to fit in our hallway of our new house. We have recently had Plus Net fibre installed. I didn't want a black router in an otherwise light hallway. This seemed to fit the bill perfectly. On receiving the router it was significantly larger than I was expecting. Not a massive problem if it works well. I set the router up, upgraded the firmware and set about configuring the relevant bits. The web interface of this device is fantastic.

Had to return the first one but second one works great so far

Thomas P, Amazon
15 June 2013
  • Summary: I've bought it to install one of the Linux-based router firmwares (dd-wrt etc.) on it. But since the first one kept losing connections and I had to return it before I ever got to install a different firmware I've decided to keep the now reliably running second version on stock firmware for a while before making the upgrade. So far it's a very good experience.

Very good

Adria Garreta Gornals, Amazon
25 May 2013
  • Summary: I was going to install Tomato or dd-wrt firmware on it but I was quite impressed with the inbuilt features and its performance so I am keeping the factory firmware for a while.
