    I flashed my RT-N16 with tomato-K26USB-1.28.7501.2MIPSR2Toastman-RT-Std 12 days ago, and it's been running without a hitch ever since. I'd consider that to be stable. Can't comment on VPN or NOCAT versions.

    Why don't you run the firmware and report back any problems you have with it? :) I really hate the overzealous use of the word "stable" -- there really is no such thing any more, when you really get down to it.

    You can read the changelog (called "read this changelog first.txt") if you want to know what's changed between versions and ask questions about any of those changes in advance.

    Well, as a noob, I'd wish not travel through unwanted headaches on first attempt :)

    Haha, Koitsu is right - in fact, I don't think there has ever been any 100% "stable" firmware on a home router. Tomato as it is today I would consider extremely stable, unless it is running something extra that compromises it's function as a router.

    As a tip, use the standard, not VLAN versions (unless you really need them) and stick to the simplest build that does what you need. Tip - NOCAT has known problems due to some changes that were made a while ago, and Vic is addressing those soon.

    RixNox, I use this stuff in large apartment blocks with up to 200/250 users per router, it's stable. If any build is found to be unstable, it's deleted from the download site.

    Your mileage may vary ... depending on your router model, and how you configure it.

    I'm curious what metrics you use to determine how well this works. I tried Tomato on an RT-N16 at an office of about 30 people with a 30Mbps up/30 Mbps down connection. They have about 10 Mbps of traffic at any given time, and the router CPU was already at 50% utilization. Is this normal?

    FYI, i am using now Tomato Version 1.28 by shibby for a week on my RT-N66U and it works perfectly.
