    thank you Shibby for the awesome firmware I really enjoy this IPV6 feature.

    I run tomato-K26-1.28.RT-MIPSR1-107-MiniIPv6.trx on a WRT54G v2.2
    It work really well to browse the internet.

    Big Problem. When I do a download the speed goes slowly down after a couple of seconds and stops continue.
    Even when I do speedtest check on speedtest.net the test will not be completed.
    I have a cable connection with 32 mbit down. The problem occur when speed is reaching about 15mbit. I also can’t than reach the router for about 10 seconds.

    I did try Firmware 088 - 107 with same issue.
    The new ones will not fit because the image is too big. So I can’t tell.

    Do I have wrong standard settings in it? Or, Is the any way to fix this?

    CPU is probably maxed out. Disable all non-essential processes (QoS, bandwidth limiter, ip traffic monitoring, UPnP, ethernet port state monitor, torrent client, etc) and you might get a bit more bandwidth. Older K2.4 ND builds may give you more throughput. Check out Victek's website for an example. (Tomato links are sticky at the top of the forum)

    OK I see ;-), my router seems to be too old to handle the 2.6 Kernel on high load.

    I bought this router in 2008 and was amazed about features and speed in combination with Tomato. I do not like to part of it but it seems there will be no possibility to get IPV6 and good download speed with my WRT54G.
    The hint with Victek's website was very interesting. I found an image Tomato_RAF_1.25.8515.2-ND.trx which gives me full provided speed. But no IPV6 :-(

    So I plan to run a router with max download speed and IPV6.
    First 6to4, later with native IPV6 dual stack, as soon as my provider give me my präfix.

    I see the Asus RT-N16 has a 32 MB Flash. Would this be a good deal to fit my needs or are there better recommendations?

    Right now the best Tomato routers are the Asus RT-N66U/R and AC66U (don't know if there is an AC66R). That will make it less likely that you'll need to upgrade in the next few years. If money is an issue then the N16 is a good choice. Keep your existing router as a g-only wireless access point so your new router can be n-only and you can potentially improve your wireless performance.

    thanx for your information.
    Then I think I going to buy a N16 thats enough for private use at home.
    I did read the review for AC66R. Is a nice pease of hardware. This will definitely be my next buy when price going down.
