Hi, I am a bit of a newbie here and I need some clarification for this question. I have a linksys e3000 and want to put one of brainslayer's build on it but I do not know if I should go with K2.6 or K3.X.

Can someone explain the difference between the two?

There is a difference in NVRAM size, 60 kB in K2.6 builds and 64 kB in K3.x builds. With a K3.x build you could get at most 70-80 Mbps WAN to LAN download speed, with a K26 build you could get at most 150 Mbps.

Something else that should be mentioned is that the K3.x support drives larger than 2TB where as the K2.6 only support drives *up to* 2TB.

Thanks for the reply. So for a linksys e3000 router I should stick with the K2.6 builds?

k2.6 and k3.x will not affect your speed so much but the build versions will. so if i were you, i would just test to see which one works best for me (dont ask me, i havent tested in a while)

-HOWEVER-

if you need the features that k2.6 does not have, then k3.x may be your best bet. as for speeds, thats up to the build version.
