Publisher's Description

Tomato is a small, lean and simple replacement firmware for Linksys' WRT54G/GL/GS, Buffalo WHR-G54S/WHR-HP-G54 and other Broadcom-based routers. It features a new easy to use GUI, a new bandwidth usage monitor, more advanced QOS and access restrictions, enables new wireless features such as WDS and wireless client modes, raises the limits on maximum connections for P2P, allows you to run your custom scripts or telnet/ssh in and do all sorts of things like re-program the SES/AOSS button, adds wireless site survey to see your wifi neighbors, and more.

Great firmware and better than DD-WRT, imho. I wish it supported as much devices as DD does though, like Linksys WRT54G for instance (ones with small memory). But still, amazing fw!!!

Wow, been a long time since the last update. Glad he's still working on it.

Still awesome. I've donated more than once.

Absolutely. Freaking. AWESOME.
Small, lean, fast, free. Like me (except I ain't free).

Got this on two Buffalo routers: a WHR-G54s, and a WHR-G125 (using the new driver). Both work flawlessly. I used DD-WRT for a couple of years before switching to Tomato because I needed QoS which is not free in DD-WRT, and boy am I glad I switched. As mentioned by the reviewer below, the AJAX+SVG interface is incredibly appealing and efficient, making Tomato worth it alone. All in all, the best aftermarket firmware I tried, beating DD-WRT hands down. Top score from me with no questions asked!

Best "prosumer" router firmware there is, in my opinion. DD-WRT has a few more esoteric features that Tomato lacks (and vice versa), but I find the performance and ESPECIALLY the interface of Tomato to be far, far superior to any others out there.

Dynamic bandwidth monitoring graphs updating in real time (in this case using AJAX and SVG) are something EVERY router should have. Indispensable.

Custom QoS is a snap, even though most people don't need it.

Choose "WPA2 Personal" (PSK) using AES encryption (rather than TKIP) with a good password and you'll have the most secure home WLAN you can get without an authentication server.

I could go on forever with feature after feature, but I think the raves of enthusiasts all over the internet are sufficient to convince any doubters.

If you have a compatible router, grab this NOW!

Tomato is just awesome. There are a few relatively minor things I'd like to see added, but overall, it's a well-designed, easy-to-use, reliable firmware. I have been using it for a few years now. It craps all over the poorly-designed, limited firmware that invariably ships with routers.

If you use it, please donate!

Far better than the POS firmware that came with my router! :P

Rock solid stability. Easy to use. I was having problems before and had to reset the router a few times, but not since upgrading to Tomato.

BTW, I'm using 1.19.

Anyone know when support for 802.11n routers might be coming. Maybe we can ask the author to setup donation fund, for him to get new routers and add suport for them?

As a former DD-WRT user who has tried most of the others, I can say that I've been using Tomato for a long time and am quite happy with it. I donated $10 awhile back.
