    Hey folks (mainly Toastman, Shibby),

    are there any plans to support the TP Link top range of routers? They seem to be a great (and cheap, and cooler in terms of the running temperature) alternative to ASUS RT-N66 and there are openwrt and dd-wrt builds available (without hardware NAT support tho).

    thanks!

    AFAIK, TP-Link router are Atheros based. Tomato only works on Broadcom based routers.

    they're cheap but if you want hardware NAT, you're stuck with the stock firmware. aside from that, those units are amazing.

    I have a TL-WDR4300 running DD-WRT. It's a nice unit - as long as you don't run the awful stock firmware which has several security holes. It draws only about 5W in idle. Really not bad for such a capable router.

    Unfortunately, I have to admit that I like Tomato routers much more. Especially those from ASUS. So the nice TL-WDR4300 is the router which is used least in my armory. It's kind of a DD-WRT test platform for me, because I'd like to have a look on DD-WRT also.

    My TL-WDR4300 is HW Rev. 1.3, which is supported well by DD-WRT. One of the biggest problems with TP-Link hardware are the countless hardware revisions, which make it hard to support every revision. Another problem is the price: While TP-Link makes cheap routers, the difference to, for example, ASUS hardware is small. Spend a few bucks more and you'll have an ASUS router which is supported well by Tomato (if you choose a model supported by Tomato).
