so consumer router are a security nightmare at the moment. What to do? Get a nice cheap TP-Link Router and flash it with OpenWrt!
I just did that and replaced my TP-WR1043ND with a new TP-WDR4300 Router.
Here are a few benchmarks
Note that I am still missing the iPhoen5 and iPad3 OpenWRT benchmarks. That is because they have some serious performance issues (<10mbit) at the moment that I want to figure out before posting faulty benchmark results.
Also I will do some iperf benchmarks later on to see how fast the macbook will go on 5ghz (internet connection caps at 100mbit).
Update: More extensive benchmarks performed with iPerf can be found in this post: TL-WDR4300 performance iDevices
