    Hello everyone,
    I have used the Shibby Tomato firmware with several ASUS routers about one years, I am satisfied with its stability and powerful functions.
    Now I am looking for a low-price router such as RT-N10 or RT-N12 series.
    I know that RT-N12(D1), which has a BCM5357 CPU, is a good choice.
    However, there seems to be a bug that FTP transfer rate is down to 32~64 KB/s via wireless with Tomato on BCM5357 CPU routers.
    I have a RT-N10, which has BCM5356 CPU, does not have this problem with Tomato.
    So, I am looking for RT-N10+ D1 and RT-N10E B1, both of them have BCM5356 CPU, and I think they may work fine to me.
    Unfortunately, this two routers are not supported by Shibby Tomato yet.
    Is there any possibility to add them into supported list?
    Thanks you.

    In my tests, the FTP transmission problem via wireless in BCM5357 routers has been solved in Shibby 116 version.
    I think the reason may be that 116 use a new wireless driver.
    If someone has the same problem, you can give 116 a try.

    Yes I can confirm on my rt-n10u, this FTP problem is fixed in Shibby build 116 ;)

    Skip the RT-N10E B1. I just bought one and I must say it's by far THE WORST router I ever come across - thinking the issues were isolated to my unit, I already swapped for a new one.

    1. Internet browsing seems faster
    2. Up to 4 SSIDs - can set guests to access Internet only
    3. On/Off switch

    1. Difficulty in saving router settings if configure through wifi
    2. Reboots the whole router on IP lease renewal or firmware setting changes
    3. Can't handle more than 10 network clients - 5 clients to be safe
    4. No updates to official firmware for a year
