    I know the Linksys WRT54GS v1.0-3.0 has 32mb but they are very hard to find now. I would like to know: Is there any device which has 32mb RAM that I can run Tomato on? Or any plans to support such a device?

    Yes the WRTSL54GS has 32 megs of ram and Thibor makes a version for it.

    I think one of the Buffalo models that is supported, has 64 of ram.
    I am not sure, but I know that there is a Buffalo model that has 64 of ram and 4 of flash.

    You might check that.

    Also the one model of Asus has 64 of ram, I think it is the Deluxe model.

    Neither of your mentioned models (I think you mean the Buffalo WZR-HP-G54 and the Asus WL-700gE) are currently supported. Both the Buffalo WHR-G54S and the WHR-HP-G54S have 16MB ram, these are supported. :smile:

    right.. so still the original question remains: is there any 32mb device to run Tomato?

    Linksys WRT54GS units currently for sale are all 5.0-6.0 units which only have 16mb RAM. Only v3.0 and earlier has 32mb and those are no longer sold (maybe some on eBay)

    Asus 500g Premium has 32mb but Tomato wont run on it.
    There is a Buffalo w/ 64 mb (WZR-G300N) but Tomato wont run it either. :frown:

    Other than the older WRT54GS's... no.

    Yeah I forgot to mention that it is not supported, but there are brands and models that has 32 even 64 mb of ram.
    But other firmware will run on it like DD-WRT.
    If tomato will support in the future, I think so, the Buffalo just started to be supported a few releases ago. So I guess it is planed.

    I would just look on eBay. That's where I got my v.2 WRT54GS last year.

    WRT54G-TM has 32MB ram and 8MB flash. It can run Tomato if flashed to DD-WRT first using the special instructions here:

    http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/WRT54G-TM

    They can now be flashed without using a JTAG cable. I have two of them right now the I bought off of E-Bay for less than $30 each.

    I have a WRTSL54GS and believe it has 32MB of RAM and a 264MHz processor too.

    I've bought three of the WRT54G-TM router so far, and each easily overclocked from 200-225Mhz with no additional cooling. I imagine they'd be fine at 250Mhz, too.

    Quite the bargain for the money.

    Asus WL-500gP seems to be a very good choice for tomato. It has 2 USB and 8MB of flash and 32MB of ram and 264 Hz cpu. It has a mini wifi card so there is a option to upgrade it in the future. The full amount has to be enabled with:

    nvram set sdram_init=0x0009
    nvram set sdram_ncdl=0x10308
    nvram commit
    reboot

    I'm running latest version of Vicek mod with USB support, after some problems everything runs smoothly!

    I use the ASUS WL500gP v2 for some of my internet connections. It *IS* supported as is the v1 - but the v1 is not available now in many countries. The v2 box is almost empty :biggrin: - it is a very cheap router to make, but is not particularly cheap to buy, it is double the price of the WRT54GL here in Thailand. The full 32MB is enabled by Tomato, without having to do anything.

    The v2 actually functions very well indeed, but the wireless is a little weak and the cheaper chipset solution has resulted in it's being somewhat slower in operation than the WRT54GL, even when overclocked. It is more stable, perhaps because of the 32MB RAM. And, it's available in most countries. I have one handling the internet connection for a 350 room condominium block.

    I agree with the guys above who suggest the WRT54G-TM. Apparently it is available on eBay cheaply. It has a decent transmitter, and overclocks happily at 250MHz. This was discussed in a recent thread:
