    Yes that can be quite logic since they upgraded so much hardware...
    then it won't be that easy I guess

    Actually, we don't know which kernel will be used finally. Oleg reported that he has had an engineering sample of RT-N16 and firmwares based both on 2.4 and 2.6

    At least we know for sure that asus tests 2.6, however, we can only hope that it finally chooses it...

    good to see that oleg is still on this
    I mean it's kinda quiet here in the english forums, while he's pretty active in the russian forum I guess.

    I vote for kernel 2.6 tho

    What is the advantage of implementing the 2.6 kernel?

    well... bug fixes, better hardware support, better software support (most software these days are written for 2.6 kernel but are backwards compatible with 2.4)

    the router would actually come close to a real modern pc when it comes to functionality etc.

    I mean... they make new versions of the kernel for a reason

    I think this thing is going to be cheaper...
    if you google online a bit you can find some prices already! (chinese ones or something).

    like this one: http://product.pchome.net/network_wi...16/143413.html
    (loads a bit slow)
    scroll down and you see "¥1595" wich comes down to around 172 Euros/233 us $

    that makes it a whole lot more affordable I guess

    I guess that's the special "gaming" version.
    since rog = republic of gamers.

    maybe it has an extra overclocking feature
    but I guess it's just build in with the special feature for lower latency gaming or something like that.
