    Was just curious if anyone knows what the status is of this firmware package?

    I have emailed the developer numerous times over the last 6 months and have never received a reply to any of my questions. In the past Jon was relatively forthcoming with responding to questions.

    This leaves me wondering if he has stopped working on Tomato and if 1.27 will be the final version available.

    Thanks in advance to anyone with any more details on the status of the product.

    See Tomato on sourceforge for beta 1.28. I'm afraid I suspect Jon so overwhelmed with support queries he rarely replies, and is clearly not interested in newer Gigabit Lan and N routers with Linux 2.6 kernel etc. Fortunately other's have picked up the baton, and as long as they are not commercial Jon seems happy to allow his trademark interface and name to still be used.

    Agreed. You may get answers to your questions by creating a thread on the forum, give it a try. There is a lot of knowledge and help out there...

    Thanks guys!

    I am good right now. Figured out the problems with flashing firmware on new 54GL (See my other thread).

    Glad to hear that Jon is still working on the product and that there is a v 1.28 in the offing. Been having reasonably good luck with 1.27 so far once we replaced a failing 54GL that was having WIFI issues. New GL is humming along fine with no issues like that.

    Maybe if Linksys or some of the other router companies out there GAVE Jon a few of these new routers, he would get hyped to support them? ;o)

    Cheers. :eek:)

    I've submitted detailed bug reports to Jon and have never received a reply either. Very disappointing.

    If tomato was a commercial product and Jon made a living from it I would agree, but please don't be naive when it comes to open source free products.
