What would you recommend buying?
A secondhand e2000 or a new ea2700?
It doesn't have to do anything special.
- wifi 2.4ghz 20mhz wpa2 aes.
- maybe some QOS...
I already have a wrt320 (almost the same as e2000) and it is rock stable running dd-wrt...

I would go with the 2nd hand e2000 if money is an issue.
I am using the e2000 as a wireless client bridge and it works great!

That's not even competition IMO, it's Dual-Band vs "Multiple Bands" - The E2000 can only do 1 band at a time while the EA2700 does em simultaneously. Both got Gigabit ports. E2000 is old now...
Was this a serious question?

Only a matter of time. I had the latest k3.X on mine briefly. Noticed the 5ghz radio wasn't showing up in the GUI. I did a factory reset, now I'm waving at if on the shelf. Lol _________________ I am far from a guru, I'm barely a novice.
