Multiple SSIDs

    Just wondered if anyone knew where Tomato was going in the future? I must admit I struggled a bit with ddwrt - it kept freezing and was just too slow despite as much config setting as I could manage (with recent versions).

    Tomato on the other hand is super-fast and easy to use, possibly this is due to less bloat (in my case) or features (in the case of a power user). One thing I'm looking for though, is to be able to have multiple SSIDs (to allow my nintendo DS to access using WEP - hopefully tightly restricted.. and WPA for the rest of my machines...)

    Is multiple SSIDs something that Tomato users might see in the future? or is it simply too hardcore? ;)

    cheers

    Yes it's nice to have one public network open for all and one encrypted where filesharing can be enabled and so on.

    The best way is provide the source code, config and choose modules as needed, then compile it.

    One thing Tomato is trying to avoid is adding code that only a handful of users need ... ie, adding "bloat" that simply slows down performance and speed. It's one reason people switch from DD-WRT to Tomato, but if it's something you really need at least there is firmware you can use (dd-wrt). :smile:

    I tend to agree, althought thousands of toys is great, we can ask for every feature, add in and gadget you can think of... but at the expense of over load the WRT with extra most people don't need (or know how to use)... Tomato is quick and solid ... if you want more look elsewhere. (possible even different hardware)
