    May I repeat that as definitely not!
    Firefox is my prevered web-browser on WindozeXP, Mac OS X and Linux. Never had any of such issues using it. Don't let this become an urban legend...

    There is no problems with any browser accessing routers!

    That is not entirely true.

    I have had problems with the way Firefox caches data that caused me all kinds of trouble with dd-wrt configuration. It would remember old values to some variables and then not actually update when I changed them. Actually had to use IE or Opera to administer the router.

    So yea, although Firefox is great at almost anything it can cause problems tho I doubt it would do anything to disconnect your WAN. If you have a cable modem, have your cable company check if the power levels on your modem are OK. If you have DSL, you might want to check line noise level on a DSL line, not sure how that can be done though.

    Ding ! Ding ! Ding ! Ding ! You said it ! DD-WRT may have problems. Tomato learned from those problems and corrected them in the software. Tomato has no such problems. Welcome to Tomato !!!!

    There has not been any cases where the web browser has actually effected or caused problems with the router performing it regular duties. And as GeeTek as noted this is not DD-WRT. Welcome to Tomato... a new kind of firmware! :thumbup:

    Keep up the good work Jon! :)

    I had the same problem with Tomato when I was playing with the WDS settings using Firefox. I disabled WDS and put it back to Access Point three times, but nothing was changing. I ended up looking at the page with IE, and changed it again. This time it stuck.

    I think it's Firefox's fault, and there's nothing that Jon can do to fix it. I just use IE whenever I want to use the web interface. Firefox is nice, but I haven't been able to find the "Check for newer versions of stored pages: Every visit to the page" option that I used with IE. Perhaps this warrants a Google search...

    Edit: http://www.tweakguides.com/Firefox_8.html - That was easy

    Well lookie lookie, not dd-wrt's fault at all is it?

    How's that humble pie tasting GeeTek and digitalgeek? I bet it's delicious.

    Listen, I love tomato as much as you guys but there is nothing worse than a fanboy. Hey, even Jon provides links to dd-wrt and other alternative firmware on the main tomato site so there is no reason to be hating on dd-wrt or any other firmware.....well some hate toward $vea$oft might be warranted (I used $ marks for s's, aren't I clever?)

    Have a good one!

    Maybe I should try to find out what firefox is before I comment on it's use. Humor me, what is firefox anyway ? Some kind of a firewall ? What's wrong with being a fanboy ? There is nothing worse ? As compared to what ?

    Firefox is a free open-source alternative to Internet Explorer: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/

    I use it because I'm completely hooked on tabbed browsing, and the current IE7 has issues on my computer (like HTML e-mails in Outlook opened super slow with IE7, real fast with IE6). Supposedly Firefox is also more secure than IE, but I've never had a problem with either of them so I can't comment. They both crash (rarely) on my system, but Firefox let's you restore the previous session if that happens, which is nice.

    The original poster never did say which version of firefox.... one that is two years old or the latest release?
