    Polarcloud's website does not say this, so where did "Lord Zog" get this info from? until Polarcloud or the changelog reports it now supports the WRT600N I would strongly recommend to NOT use tomato on ANY unsupported models of router.

    If tomato does indeed run on the WRT600N, I'll be buying one.

    Would love to buy a WRT600N, but only when I can run Tomato in this great little router!

    Hope we can have support to this model soon!

    Are any of the Wireless N Routers flashable with Tomato?

    Since Tomato is a variant of the Linux firmwares for Linksys Routers:
    - Stock Linux Firmware, DD-WRT etc... can we get some insight as to which is the most potentially Compatible / Approachable model to buy?

    We buy it now and do the DD-WRT and when PolarCloud gets to it DD-WRT > TOMATO.

    In the meantime, nothing prevents one from continuing to use the Tomato router as the primary router and the wireless-N router as an access point. You get the best of both worlds at a cost of increased power consumption.

    My bet is on the Linksys 600N, although that's just a guess because it looks like currently the best 802.11n Draft model and it's Broadcom-based. Dual radios (2.4GHz and 5GHz) allow for the best co-existence with 802.11g networks, plus Linksys has posted the current Linksys 600N 1.01.36 build 3 GPL code.

    It will be, however, far from easy to make Tomato work on it. The DD-WRT developer has been working on it on and off on it for over six months and DD-WRT only kind-of works on a WRT600N with issues with the Ethernet switch and wired LAN connections, and no support for the LEDs on the front or the StorageLink USB port.

    Other candidates would be any of the other Linksys 802.11n Draft wireless routers (WRT150N/160N/300N/310N/350N) before anything from another vendor, as Tomato is built from the Linksys WRT54GL codebase so you'd hope for some similarities.

    Of course, it's also possible no working Tomato version will show up for 802.11n Draft devices... ever...

    I believe that quite soon Tomato will have support for some 802.11n Draft model routers.
    I don't know which models yet but I know it is being worked on.

    Can we not open a communication Channel with the Tomato developer and ask him what his future plans / outlook are? That way we buy the router that he finds most suitable for future development.
