About my WRT54G-TM and Tomato

    Hello and thank you very much for reading my post. For around 5 years now I have been using a Linksys WRT54G-TM router; this is the best router I ever had. It is working excellent not rebooting or giving me any kind of other problems. I flashed it years ago with the Tomato Firmware v1.28.1816 by Jonathan Zarate and like I said it's been great. A couple of years back I started using a VPN service and I tried many times to make the router connect to it so all my network will see the VPN server first but failed every time. I noticed there are other tomato firmwares out there but since I didn't follow the releases I have no idea which one will work for me; especially since the router is running great I didn't want to mess it up. The other thing I would like to do and it seems possible is that I would like to be able to create a guest account that will have access only to the internet. Since I'm very confused seeing all the different releases out there, which is the firmware that I need to do what I want? Thank you very much for any responses in advance.

    I also have a -TM, dates from the days you needed JTAG to change the bootloader, so its just been used for all sorts of hacking, and overclocking to 250Mhz (with heatsink)

    The router has 8MB flash and 32MB ram, but cpu and wifi is in the category of 'should work with Linux kernel 2.6 and new wifi drivers, but unlikely to see much benefit', k2.6 could be slower but is needed for IPV6 etc.

    You must use mipsR1 and 32kB nvram versions, it shouldn't matter that the router doesn't have a USB port.

    But not sure which exact one to recommend, nor whether you really need a VPN version for your requirements!
