    There are some problems is bothering me.I'm runing the latest version of shibby tomato on my R7000.But compared with my R6300 V2 which is runing kong dd-wrt,The quality of R7000's signal is less than R6300 V2,no matter on 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz.

    i dont know why this happens.if i have some wrong setings? or tomato for arm is not so mature than dd currently?please help me thx!

    You have to consider that build is BETA stage and you can't expect full functionality.

    And a little tips:
    When you test builds from ex dd-wrt, tomato and others don't forget to delete your client "forget" and reconnect to new build.

    Unfortunately, it is very difficult to answer your question with the limited information provided. Some examples of relevant issues would be:
    - Did you compare R7000 signal strength with different firmwares? (dd-wrt, stock, Tomato). Comparing the R6300 with one firmware and the R7000 with another is less meaningful due to possible hardware differences, possibly faulty unit, etc...
    - There was no mention of transmission power, region setting
    - How are you measuring "quality?" RSSI? SNR? Throughput? Dropped signal? The latter two are more meaningful, especially with dd-wrt which with some previous versions has been able to generate higher RSSI with less stable signal and inferior throughput.

    I think I read somewhere the best is for Tomato to set the transmission power to zero (hardware default) and the location /region to US, at least for the 2.4 Ghz band in the US.

    Try Singapore, and try both the upper and lower 5GHz bands. Once again, beware my last point from my response above. dB output isn't everything when it comes to wireless.
