    I run Merlin on my Asus, switched back and forth between stock and Merlin a few time before going that way. DD-WRT I've deployed on occasion where I needed to segregate guest networks access, definitively more features in DD-WRT in IMHO.

    Never ran Merlin on a router before. DD-WRT ended up not being worth the hassle.

    Merlin is much easier to deal with than DD-WRT, it's based on the original Asus firmware and is easy to upgrade or revert back to stock firmware.

    Brilliant! Using the studs on the blocks as contacts between the each storage units. Who's going to bring this to market?

    Performance upgrade, from M.2 PCIE x4 to LEGO PCIE x8 :D

    Maybe this is how they will stack HBMXX when it comes out?? :cool:

    With DD-WRT I can specifically enable/disable implicit/explicit beamforming, control TX power, have more control over aggregate ports, more granular VLAN control, and a whole host of other power options that are never ever exposed in stock firmware.

    1.4GHz dual-core Cortex-A9, 512MB of LPDDR3... you can do some powerful stuff with it. Plus the antennas have the most awesome looking subtle blue LED lit tips.

    DD-WRT often goes just a bit of a step beyond what the hardware is capable of IMHO. Most consumer class routers just aren't built to run the kind of features DD-WRT enables, but these new high-end routers are plenty capable. I paid quite enough for this thing, and you best believe I will be getting the features I want. haha

    That would be awesome! PoP storage additions.

    For those asking... I didn't build it. I bought it. It's official LEGO brand with PNY NAND. Not a bad deal at all.

    Didn't realize the antennas had LED tips, that must be cool.

    That's very disappointing... I was planning to build a 1080 with my Lego...
