So Verizon is offering a free netbook to new DSL subscribers, and I don't have any particular affinity for Comcast, so I decided to try it out.
With Comcast (which is actually still running), I have the following setup: - Motorola cable modem - Linksys WRT54g v 2.2 running Tomato and boosted output power
I have this unit set to forward BitTorrent, SSH, and icecast ports to one machine at home.
Verizon unexpectedly sent me a modem for my new service that also functions as a wireless access point and a router. It's a Westell 7500. It seems to be almost as configurable as my Linksys, and it looks like there is no need to boost the output power in order to get up to my office. The only missing feature appears to be DynDNS.com updating; the new router uses TSIG authentication which is only available on paid accounts, and I can just punt this to one of my computers.
So, is there anything I am missing that would be worth me keeping the Linksys around? Does this router have any hidden gotchas?
