    Hello: Is there a difference and is it important between these two routers? If I were to keep only one, then which would you recommend? Both routers were purchased from Amazon.ca a few days apart. Many thanks.

    The hardware should be mostly the same. V5 has a newer firmware update available so I'd go with that.

    I'm thinking the same thing - if I recall correctly both versions came out a few months apart the same year although this leads me to wonder why the short time between versions if not to fix something. :)
