    I would really like to put tomato firmware onto this router:


    As i know it bares the Broadcom Intensi-fi chipset.
    The key components are:
    CPU: Broadcom BCM4704KPBG
    Switch: Broadcom BCM5325FKQMG 5 port 10/100
    Flash: Macronix 29LV320 4MB
    RAM: ICSI IC42S16400-7TG X2 16MB total
    Baseband/MAC: BCM4321 MAC/baseband controller for draft-802.11n and 802.11a/b/g devices (PCI/PCI Express/CardBus)
    Radio: Broadcom BCM2055 2x2 dual-band single-chip radio

    Do you think it can be done?
    Thanks in advance

    Thanks for the answer,
    For using tomato this router needs his own build or i can use an already made build?

    you should probably get the sources from Netgear and merge them into current source base or simply change the toolchain/Kernel path which will work as well I was looking at that router but couldn't get a unit so I proceeded no further than a rough merge..

    Is there a chance that this router will be "officially" supported by jon :)
    Meaning ...
    Will a Tomato firmware come out for this router?
    Shall i contact jon by e-mail?

    I wish I knew how to do this......I have 3 routers at home all working together with WDS. But I bought one of these Netgears mentioned in this thread but had to throw DD-WRT on it, once I put it in WDS mode with my tomato routers my internet kept dying until I turned off the netgear. Apparently tomato + wds + dd-wrt do not work well together.
