Can any router with Tomato do 250+ Mbps?

    My ISP is deploying 250 Mbps service, likely 300 Mbps with Speedboost. Is there a router compatible with Tomato that can do that, or do I have to abandon my beloved ad-blocking script?

    Cheers.

    As long as your WAN port on the router is capable of gigabit speeds, you should be ok.

    That turns out not to be the case. My e3000 is definitely rated at gigabit WAN speeds, but the only Tomato version that will do over 120Mbps on it is Victek's Speedtest version, which breaks USB to the point where streaming is unusable.

    I picked up a Netgear R7000, which has excellent hardware, but the DD-WRT guys seem to be months away from a stable release, and I can't go without parental controls and ad-blocking that long.

    Yep, but Vic's Speedtest version breaks USB transfer rates, can't stream anything. It'd be ok otherwise.

    I have been able to hit 135 out of 150 with my E4200 overclocked to 533Mhz. It was like 128 at stock 480Mhz with my FIOS. Hoping the ARM ports (I think Shibby, Toastman, Lightsword, and Vic are starting) will put an end to it as most of those are clocked much higher and have dual core CPUs. Bought a Netgear R7000 for a customer and it has so much potential but is hindered by the factory firmware. :(

    Yeah, I'm praying the ARM ports go well. Love the hardware on the R7000, but the firmware is rubbish compared to Tomato.
