Tomato Firmware !

Tomato Firmware for Linksys Routers.

What is Tomato Firmware ?
Tomato is free open source Linux-based firmware for several Broadcom-based Wi-Fi routers. The major emphasis of Tomato is on stability, speed and efficiency. It is maintained by Jonathan Zarate, who also developed HyperWRT +tofu. Click here to go to the official Website.

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