    Is this possible to achieve 125Mb wireless with tomato on a WHR-G54S?

    125 Mb? Sure, it'll just take you ~7 seconds to do so :wink:

    125 Mbps? Not a chance. It doesn't have the right hardware (802.11g has a typical throughput of 19 Mbps).

    I thought with that model you could in theory connect at 125mbps using the Afterburner option, if your client WLAN card supported it to, or am I mistaken? As to what you'd get in real-world though.....

    I did mean megabit sure the speeds in networking is always in bits. So "M" should have been "m" ;-)

    According to the documentation:
    Code:
    802.11g Wireless 125* High- Speed Mode" Transfer Rates When Used with 125* High- Speed Mode" Adapter
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afterburner_%28wireless_networking%29

    I have 2x Buffalo, an WHR-HP-54G (54) and a WHR-G54S (128). Both have the afterburner configuration option under tomato. my laptop has an Intel wireless NIC... I'm just wondering if I affect the other clients enabling afterburner on the router.

    No, you had the "M" correct (Mb == megabit). It was just the missing ps (per second) I was commenting on. You could easily do 125 Tb (terabits) wirelessly: just not in anywhere close to 1 second. :wink:
    I guess forget what I said about it not being possible. I didn't realize that the Afterburner rate was so high. Seeing 125 Mb[ps], I thought you were expecting 802.11n... :blush:

    I've never really been sure exactly how much faster in practice the Afterburner rate is... I guess the simple answer would be to do some tests, but I'm too lazy right now :)

    I have a recollection that, in at least some cases, Afterburner actually slows down the connection.

    have you tried "AUTO" option, not "Enable". Though the actual transfer speed won't boot up much.
