Router Firmware

I was wondering your opinions on router firmware. My router is a Linksys WRT160Nv3. I purchased a Roku player and started streaming my video to my tv. The router was terrible, and would not go into wireless N mode. Well it would, but my roku, laptop, and phone would not connect to it.

I looked around and installed DD-WRT, now it works great. I heard tomato is good too, so was just looking for feedback. Thanks

I purchased a Western Digital N750 Gigabit Router a couple of years ago, only issue I had was I had to turn it off then back on about once a week to restore the Wi-Fi. A month later I downloaded and installed a firmware update from WDC, all has been good since. Main thing is, if it's working okay don't fix it. But always check with the manufacturer to see if a firmware update will benefit.

Thanks Berton, I went away from the Linksys firmware because it wasn't working. DD-wrt is working great, just exploring other options.
