    Hello everyone,

    So I have Comcast service now and as the title states, I have a WRT54GL running on the latest Tomato firmware. My wired connections are just fine in the speed category, but the wireless services are extremely slow, on my PS3 or iPhone. Everything is practically in the same room, so I am asking for help if anyone knows what settings I have to tweak in Tomato to get faster wireless speed.

    Thank you in advance!

    Did you checked the Channel usage in your surrounding? The wireless channel you are using can be also used of many others in your neighbourhood.

    Are the PS3 and the Iphone the only two Wireless clients you are using?

    Which version of tomato did you flashed? the "normal" or ND version?

    Did it worked flawelessly before you updated your Router to Tomato v. 1.27 ?

    Hi Kama,

    I checked the channel and found a less "crowded" one. Additionally I flashed it with the "normal" one. Prior to the flash I wouldn't know if worked or not, as I flashed with Tomato right away.

    Turns out the router itself was at fault. I did pick up a discounted "open box" from Fry's, and it was faulty. I got another one and it work great.

    Thank you.
