This item has now been sold.

----

For Sale: Netgear R7000 - around 4 months old.

Was running Advanced Tomato on a 200/200 UFB connection. Since I am a network geek I have since replaced this. Has been the best all in one router I have ever used since the Linksys WRT54GL in terms of custom firmware. Also features hardware packet processing in the latest Tomato builds so can quite easily be used on a Gigatown connection.

If desired I can either factory reset it on Advanced Tomato (really good and fully featured firmware) or can reset it back to stock.

Cheapest price on Pricespy is $250 (excluding delivery). I am happy to let this sucker go for $180 ONO. Located in Wellington.

Sorry, eggs or kitchen sink are not included.

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

I'm keen if it's still available.

What's the wifi performance like on Tomato? I've got a D-Link that I'm not that happy with. It will run DDWRT, but the non-stock firmware shoots the wifi straight to hell.

Sure is. The WiFi performance is really quite good on Tomato and covers our house with Wireless AC no problems. Was also able to get the full speed of my connection (over 5GHz) all over my house however 2.4GHz is lacking mainly because every neighbor and their dogs have WiFi these days.

Flick me a DM if you're interested and I'll load it up with a fresh build of Tomato.

Michael, I have a couple of these, does Tomato give better performance or is the user interface thats better, or both? I used to run DDWRT on a linksys and liked the UI better than stock. Have not tried Tomato though.

I think Tomato is just nicer and is also really fully featured. Try advanced Tomato on one of them (you can go back). The interface is really nice and easy to control. Performance is on-par with stock and DD-WRT
