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!!!

    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!
