    I just went out and got a brand new wrt54gl and flashed it with tomato. i like it better than stock... i think. I am at a lost with what to change on it to make it better for me. i use the internet for world of warcraft, net browsing, love my utorrent, some xbox 360 gaming. thats about it. I have comcast with power boast does that mean anything to any of this? Do I want to use QoS?

    QOS will help you control traffic... last thing you want is for uTorrent to be running full out and your XBOX can't comunication or take a long time to receive info... worse yet web site load slow... So yes you want to use QOS!

    Welcome to the Tomato Family!

    welcome to the forum Smithben1983!

    If you are a standalone user, and use only one application at a time, you may not benefit from using QOS at all. If you use P2P and this is likely to affect VOIP, then you will almost certainly benefit.

    It's a complicated subject, start off by reading stuff on the forum and then try to adapt it to your own use. Look here:
