    Probably never, at least as long as comparable Broadcom CPU based routers still hit the market.

    so can i get a refund on wrt1900acs to buy asus rt-ac3200 ?
    thats why nobody wants to buy it after i put it for sale half price one week after i bought it...
    but why only broadcom routers run tomato ? broadcom routers run dd-wrt but it runs on wrt1900acs as well
    its open source why they dont fix it...obviously there is audience for it (users owning wrt1900acs)
    is it so hard ?
    im running tomato on asus rt53n but obviously tomato overruns this hardware as it stucks and needs reboot often...the superior hardware of wrt1900acs should have no problem
    but the functionality makes ddwrt seem like a joke (wan and lan per ip traffic graphs and limiting, multiple vpn servers etc to name a few)

    LOL refund. It is not Linksys fault, that there is no tomato support, in fact linksys sent units to tomato devs.
    Linksys never advertised it as tomato compatible:)
    Tomato devs neither have the skill nor the time to port this thing.

    I have used tomato and dd-wrt for a long time, recently fully switched to dd-wrt, since they added a fast nat engine, which is able to handle full gigabit even on older units.

    DD-WRT in my opinion has way more features then tomato ( ok, no multi openvpn server instances, which I'm sure can also be done by script, but who needs that?). E.g. dd-wrt has built in adblocking,hotspotsystem,radiusserver (to use different wireless passwords for each client with expire time),zabbix monitoring, ipsec vpn (for ios), easy guest network setup.

    Tomato is my preferred firmware but recently I've had to revert to dd-wrt because it has a working Client Mode.
