wrt vs tomato
which is best... please be honest...

i mean.. i just can't sleep so i thought why not flash my wrt54g v5... i successfully installed it...

later i tried to find a guide for firewall... i mean [strikeline]i am not sure which is correct ip for my computer... like or,etc[/strikeline] never mind... i should scroll up because i never see that long list in commend...

i accidently found this article, DD-WRT vs. Tomato: Winner is Tomato | Mark Wagner - Yet Another Blog

and found another

DD-WRT vs Tomato: Clear choice? | Wright PC Consulting, LLC

so what is your opinion?

using DD-WRT on 2 WRT54GL linksys router since 4 days (wanted to have a wireless bridge between the living room and the computer room downstairs without doing a bunch of holes) and the stock firmwire wouldn't let me do that.

the DD-wrt did and its working like a charm

DD-wrt got my vote

Tomato gets mine.

I've used pretty much every firmware you can use on the Linksys routers and Tomato has the best features and overall setup.

Never used Tomato so I can't say which is better. I have used wrt on a good half dozen routers though and it works great.

Try Tomato you'll wish you wondered why you hadn't.

i just found out that it will not support my wrt54g v5


Tomato is not compatible with Linksys WRT54G/GS v5-v7 or newer WRT54G/GS routers. These routers do not run Linux. See the Linksys WRT54GL router if you are interested in making a Tomato-compatible purchase.

but... dd-wrt is linux?

The version 5-7's only have 8mb of on board memory, Earlier versions have 16. DD-WRT makes a cut down version for these, Tomato doesn't.

yes i know... as i read wiki...

wel... its too bad, so i will keep dd-wrt... or suggest me for other firmware?
