    I have a Linksys WRT54GL v1.1 with DD-WRT v23 SP2 mini currently installed, but I'm planning on trying Tomato.
    Does Tomato have bandwidth control? Is it possible to set max DL/UP speed per user (MAC-address or IP-address)?

    as JensG mentioned try WRT Script Generator. I also use this and be very happy with it. In combination with Tomato-QoS it is unbeatable :biggrin:

    Just installed Tomato, looks great

    Hi. I just installed Tomato, and it looks great. I'm curious on trying the Script Generator, but I don't know how to install it. It's an .exe file, so am I suppose to run it from Windows, and it will automatically install to router?

    You probably run it, then it asks you questions or you fill in some boxes telling it what you want to do, then it will generate a script, and you copy/paste that script into one of the "Scripts" boxes under Administration in the Tomato GUI. Probably the firewall box?

    Yes you have to put the generated script in the firewall script section.

    may i know what you use the generator for exactly?

    I am interested on the combination of the script and the built in QoS. What are the things that the script can do that is not covered by the built in QoS?

    Hi cgondo, i use the Script generator mainly to limit the bandwidth (up- and downstream) and to limit the simultaneous number of connections for one computer. With builtin QoS you only affect the upload side (i know that throtteling downstream is possible but its not recommended) ! For more information visit this thread
