    I would like to use Shibby with my WRT54GS V2, but there are many links for downloading the firmware on Shibby's page and it isn't clear what each link is for.

    Help Please.

    K24 is needed. Unfortunately, builds that have an older driver are also needed. I am not sure if shibby's builds use NEWD or VINT. Someone else needs to chime in...

    any firm with kernel 2.4 will go fine, don't go with a large firm, remember you have 8 MB flash memory. i think the more experienced in any wrt54 is Victek Raf 1.28.121006 (@ eahm older kernel, 80Mbps guaranteed!)

    I personally flash 1.28.7633.3 when I have a WRT54Gx to do. I think it's the best one with the latest drivers/software.

    I hate to be that guy... you know, the noob that asks old-already-answered questions, but...

    Does anyone have a decoder ring for the various images naming versions of Tomato Shibby? The page describing it http://tomato.groov.pl/?page_id=66 is in Polish only and the English link at the top goes to a page stating that it is in progress.

    I have a Linksys WRTSL54GS that I'd like to install the latest and greatest Tomato Shibby on... I'm just not sure which file to use.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    leaning towards the K26 Max firmware package for my WRT54GS V4. I was told I should only use the K24.

    Has anyone used the K26 Max package on this series the WRT54GS router series? Was the performance good/bad?

    If you need IPV6 then go for it. If not then use K2.4

    I had one of those routers running K2.4 Toastman Tomato at a family member's house for months without a reboot, overclocked. It struggled with QoS and other CPU-intensive features on a 16/1 cable connection.

    Worked with a couple of Shibby K2.4 versions for months. Only one crash, probably from the overclock. Otherwise similar performance to Toastman.

    Seemed to work with previous version of Gargoyle, but didn't do much testing.

    Shibby's site shows that his K26 builds run on the wrt54g. Is there any reason not to do this?

    Will K26 allow me to run Entware, or does Entware require mips R2?
