This was my thought, thus the reason for wanting to switch routers. I have a feeling the touchpad is strictly 802.11n compliant whereas a lot of these other routers are still running under some revision of the draft n specs.

The dir-655 sits mid-to-bottom of the pack in most situations. I almost purchased the Asus black diamond today from newegg since it is on sale (with an email coupon code), except ddwrt and other open source firmwares won't install on it
Plus, even if the processor in the e4200 is drastically underpowered, which I doubt, at 480mhz vs the dir-655's 275mhz, its still almost twice the speed, and while I know MHz isn't everything, it'd need to be archaic to fall behind a processor running at half the clockspeed.
Finally, I'd like something dual band since I have 5ghz capable devices now, which I didn't before
