    Hi everyone.

    Linksys is now releasing a lot of new routers based on wireless N technology (WRT150N/WRT160N/WRT300N series).
    I appreciate very much Tomato firmware on my WRT54G router:
    Especially Access restrictions rules and QOS functionality.

    Does anybody know if Jon is working on a firmware that we could use on wireless N routers ?

    Thanks a lot for your reply.

    Don't quote me on this but I think those routers you mention would work with the new driver version, tomato-ND. Does an excellent job on my Asus WL-500gP v2

    It would definitely be great to see the sweet Tomato runing on the 802.11n routers. Maybe it's because N is not finalized yet? It has been delayed for quite a while and let's hope that it REALLY can come out as final when the end of 2009 comes...

    In the meantime, buy an N router (or an N access point directly, like the DLink DAP-1522) and use it as an access point. These things are sufficiently cheap nowadays and the increase in electricity costs is negligible.

    This way you get N speeds and don't need to give up any wonderful Tomato features.

    Agreed. That's precisely what I'm doing with a D-Link DIR-655.

    Myself as well...

    Using Linksys WAP4400N with WRT54GL running tomato 1.21. Beautiful performance! Planning on buying a WRT610N and using it in place of the WAP.

    I have been wanting Tomato firmware for my Linksys WAG325N Router. So I've been playing with the Source Code of the Tomato v1.21 and hopefully will have something to show for it soon enough :)

    I also have a spare WAG200G and intend on getting Tomato on this also.
