cariyawa, 1. Yes. 2. So far there was one report that it does happen with Tomato, and one that it doesn't. I could not reproduce this issue myself. If you install this mod, please report your experience. 3. Yes. When installing Tomato from DD-WRT, do not forget to select "Reset to defaults" in the drop-down on the DD-WRT Upgrade page, and (to be on the safe side) do "thorough nvram erase" once Tomato is installed.
