    WRT54GL Rebate

    Just wanted to make sure all the "poor" folks watching this thread knew that there is currently a $10 rebate on the WRT54GL router, bringing the price to under $60 shipped from online vendors. You could get one at for $69.77 shipped, minus a $10 mail-in rebate, and minus $50 for signing-up for a RevolutionCard, for a grand total of $9.77. You wouldn't have to wait with your fingers crossed or debate what features to lose in a "micro" release.

    ...that said, I found this thread because I have a WRT54GL running Tomato and the WRT54GSv7 it replaced running DD-WRT micro; I plan for the latter to power an additional AP with an outdoor antenna while the WRT54GL provides the WAN gateway and primary AP. Even though the WRT54GL is cheap, there are a lot of newer WRT54GS routers around and now that vxworkskiller has made it possible to upgrade them, a "micro" Tomato would be much appreciated even if it only offered slightly more than the stock firmware [e.g. QoS, radio transmit power, WDS, flashy SVG graphs].

    has someone installed the new version of DD-WRT V24 final micro? Does WDS work with tomato v1.19?

    Yes, at least with WPA PSK + AES WDS works fine.

    I already have a WTR54GS v2.0 which only has 2MB of flash memory & 8MB RAM. When I bought it, I thought it was going to have 4MB flash but didn't realize they'd cut bad in the new revision. At first I had no options for alternative firmware, not even a new release from Linksys seemingly. Then dd-wrt added support in recent micro versions which I loaded. It would be nice to have the option of a micro Tomato. The dd-wrt micro build file I loaded is 1.68 MB, not sure how small it has to be.

    right now i am running the latest V23 SP3 on my WRT54GS V5.1 (16MB RAM & 2MB flash). I use it only for WDS and everything works actually great, but v24 mircro does have some nice features :)

    Same deal but still holding out for a tomato micro, got a v6 & a v8 sitting on the shelf doing nothing. (no.. the v8 was not a juice punn).

    Has anything ever come of this? I've got 5 of these old routers I want to use to setup a network in my apt. complex and would like to get away from dd-wrt

    If you're going to use them as AP's then they're just fine with DD-WRT or the original firmware. For a router, best to forget it and buy a GL.
