Is Tomato Still Actively Developed?

    I've been a happy Tomato user for the last few years with my WRT54GL. I'm looking to upgrade to an 802.11n router soon, however, and am hoping that there are plans to make Tomato compatible with an 802.11n router.

    I've used DD-WRT in the past a few times, but always come back to Tomato. It's just more reliable AND easier to use. If there's a way to keep Tomato and upgrade routers, it'll make decisions that much easier.

    I know I could get an 802.11n access point and keep my current router, but I don't want the number of networking devices I have to keep expanding.

    Mods of Tomato fully support Wireless N on a decent amount of routers, you can check out

    Also Victek / Toastman make their own MIPSR2 Kernel 2.6 firmwares of Tomato.

    DD-WRT is another option that is supported on an even larger router base.

    From what I can tell, the original Tomato is most likely no longer actively developed. I just hope and wish the Tomato-interface can be ported over to Atheros-based routers, like what DD-WRT & OpenWRT did after the WRT54G, then ALOT of people would be happy... :)

    Something like Tomato-GUI w/ an OpenWRT under it would be ideal, unfortunately the GUI is not GPL...

    I agree, if it were ported to Atheros based routers that would be awesome, but I would first like to see it hit more broadcom based routers, there are still many good ones out there not currently supported.

    On the other hand, would Tomato lose its touch we all like by becoming so mass platform widespread. Lets face it DD-WRT isn't what it used to be.

    I think Tomato has peaked and the original creator. Is not interested in these new routers. Glad to see the other developers though carry on with it....
