    If you really need mission critical then you should be using mission crittical commercial hardware\firmware with minimum dual redundant everything (including dual/multiple internet connections) to give you automatic failover protection.

    Beta is beta don't forget. As mikester suggested you should use something more robust for "mission critical". That being said you may want to enabling remote logging to capture the logs to see when it chokes. A lot of times its related to the type of traffic that is running through it.

    Disman_CA is right. If you experience random reboots, likely it is the router running out of resources and probably you need to look at why. This being a Tomato forum, I am not going to suggest you change to a different solution, but you may find changing your router to an RT-N16 which has 128MB memory, and paying attention to why your router runs out of resources (QOS - Conntrack timeout settings etc.) will make a huge difference. I don't see why Tomato should be better than DD-WRT, it is usually the other way round, but something is clearly different. What happens if you use a known stable build (such as Victek's 8515.2) instead?

    Unfortunately I have yet to see the RT-N16 sold in retail stores in the US - and I looked (in NYC and surrounding areas). I finally went with Newegg. Suggestion to devlin is to ask his parents for help with payment if it comes to that. =)

    Wish you could get it to wake my daughter up to go to school...

    No RT's in stores in USA ? I'm amazed. Sympathy to you, I admire your wish to remain independant!

    In Canada almost every computer store sell it. So you can get it fo cheap.

    If you can't even afford the time for a reboot then you probably need a higher class of router. I need mine available and have scripts to reboot it if connectivity is lost. In my case I can afford the reboot time as long as it comes back. You wouldn't think a TM would be running out of memory but probably depends on what you're doing. You can track the memory to see if it's related. But if it reboots you'll lose the internal logs. But if can set up Planiwas VIT script and log to a syslog server, you'll have some data you can use in post mortem.
