Hi everyone, This is a topic that has been discussed in the past however I couldn't find one dedicated thread for it. For a while now, some router vendors (in particular Asus) has enabled on their routers (whether Broadcom or MediaTek/Ralink) the feature of 'hardware nat' or CTF (Cut-Through-Forward) and in some recent version another layer of it called FA (Flow Assistance). RMerlin, the man himself, has a nice thread about these <a href="http://www.snbforums.com/threads/broadcoms-hardware-acceleration.18144/"> here</>. Unfortunately these are not available in Tomato, only in Asuswrt (official firmware) or asuswrt-merlin or padavan. Which is ironic since, as far as I know, asuswrt is based on (an old) version of Tomato. As the Broadcom SDK is being used for the ARM support, I wonder if there's even a small chance for these proprietary, closed-source modules to be incorporated into Tomato? In my case after close to 8-9 years, of using Tomato on my routers, I'm forced to move of it as it cannot properly handle my network connection despite the hardware being capable: my ISP is using PPPoE - initially with 100mbps / 100mbps, my reliable RT-N16 worked just fine. After being upgraded to 200mbps/100mbps, I've noticed Tomato maxing out at ~140-150 mbps. After using `bcm_nat` module, it went past 200 mbps. However now that the connection has been upgraded to 300 mbps downstream, even with the module loaded it cannot go past 205-206 mbps. Switching to Asuswrt-merlin (and thus with CTF enabled) made the N16 to easily reach 300 mbps with a CPU load of ~0.25. on PPPoE nevertheless. Yes it's an 'old' router however with the proper firmware, it turns out it's quite capable. Another Asus router, N56U with Ralink SoC (I know Tomato is Broadcom only) turned out to be quite a beast using Padavan firmware. In both cases though, I would have much preferred Tomato. I know a lot of features (like QoS) will not work with CTF but then again, it's easy for folks to pick and chose. Would the Tomato ARM see hardware nat/CTF/FA feature or not? Thank you!
