    Thanks much! Where can I find the table?

    I have a Belkin Share N300 and am trying to figure out what version to load that supports NFS and USB yet supports my router's CPU (Broadcom BCM4716 chip rev 1 pkg 10), 8 MB flash, and 64 MB RAM. So far I'm finding scattered, fragmentary documentation at the following sites. Perhaps I'm missing a site?
    1. linksysinfo.org
    2. tomato.groove.pl
    3. repo.or.cz/w/tomato.git
    4. tomatousb.org
    5. wikipedia.org
    Also the chart shows NFS support in the "Max" version, but looking in the download folders for the highest number build for both the K24 (http://tomato.groov.pl/download/K24/build5x-121-EN/) and the K26 (http://tomato.groov.pl/download/K26/build5x-123-EN/) there are no "max" versions. Instead they have "big" versions, but I don't know if that's the same as "max" or not.

    If there's some kind of guide to all this I'd love a link so I don't have to pepper you with all these questions.

    Thanks for your help!

    OK thanks. I got a reply on IRC to check a 6th site (yes, 6!). This site shows what people are running via the Tomato Anon reporting. This is super valuable because it tells me that a lot of people are running 123 Big on their Belkin N300 routers.

    The site is great. You can filter by router model and other things, then sort by various attributes, such as version.
    http://anon.groov.pl/index.php?model=Belkin Share Max N300 (F7D3301/F7D7301) v1

    I still can't find a list of what features are in what version (the grid a few posts back is dated and appears to have some typos), but at least I know what to try, with confidence that I won't brick my router.

    Updated Tomato info site list:
    1. http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.php?forums/tomato-firmware.33/
    2. http://tomato.groov.pl/

    4. http://tomatousb.org/
    5. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tomato_(firmware)

    Thanks for everybody's help.

    Well I just upgraded the router to tomato-K26USB-1.28.RT-MIPSR2-123-Big-VPN. While the router didn't brick, it also doesn't have NFS support, at least not from the GUI. :( So I'm still needing to know if there is a version that will run on my Belkin N300 and also provide NFS.

    Oddly enough, on the "About" page, it says this:
    - NFS utils integration and GUI

    But in fact it's not there, at least not that I can find. What is there is SAMBA file sharing.

    Any further info is appreciated!

    It's not crystal clear so I will comment on the difference between SD-VPN and VPN. SD-VPN includes support for SDHC cards, etc. if your router is a WRT54GL or similar that has no SDHC/MMC slot, don't use that one, use the VPN only one instead.

    Memory is limited in these devices and it is non-optimal to take up scarce space with support for a module you are unable to use.
