    I'm beginning to think that we'll never see Tomato on an N router. I understand that Tomato runs on a particular Broadcom chip set and it's not as simple as just compiling for new routers. Jon still updates Tomato, but he really doesn't seem interested in adding N support.

    What do you guys think. Am I off the mark?

    Yes, you are off the mark. See the threads on the first page.

    Sorry, I meant from the original developer. Not to discount Teddy Bear's work.

    why does it matter who adds N support?

    there's dozens of different mods to the original tomato FW adding various functionality all by different modders so why not N support?

    Maybe it doesn't, especially considering the level of support that roadkill, SgtPepper, teddy_bear, Victek, and others give. But it would help spread Tomato. Right now, most people who are looking for replacement firmware for their N routers aren't going to find these mods and so are going to go with DD-WRT or OpenWRT.

    This is true, these mods need to be laid out on a wiki or something.
