    I have a Linksys E1000 v1 and I was wondering which Toastman build I should use? The builds for MIPSR2 routers are labelled from E2000 down so I was getting confused. I preferably want the one with VPN support (I don't care much for VLAN, however.)

    Thanks a lot!

    tomato-K26-1.28.7501.3MIPSR2Toastman-RT-VPN should work. I use the 'general mod' on one of my Cisco M10 V1 routers since a specific version is also not listed.

    K26 cause it's a newer chipset and shouldn't be K24. RT and not RT-N cause it's one of the older ones that doesn't need the new wireless driver. Those specific models like E2000 and up are cause they use 60k NVRAM hence requiring a different build. Don't think it matters for tomato if your E1000 is v1 or v2.

    Unfortunately the newer mods of Tomato don't have a easy way of displaying for new users which devices are supported.

    (Eg. Jon's Tomato site does but that's outdated as the mods have much more devices. Victek has a short but user-friendly list on his site. But I just mainly use DD-WRT's supported device list to quickly check the platform/chipset and make my own judgement call. Terribly not user friendly.)

    I see, so you use DD-WRT's device list here: ( to show you whether its K26 or K24? And you already know its MIPSR2, so I guess you just combine that info and look for a nonspecific build?

    Thanks for the software suggestion, the build is working great!
