    I had an asus -66 with tomato shibby that I really liked. But the radios in the asus were flaky.

    I set up a netgear r6300, which has rocking radios. Everything is super stable.

    I went looking for shibby, and it seems rather a dead project.

    What is going on in the world of tomato and alternate router OS software?

    Several third party firmwares are alive and kicking, such as Tomato, dd-wrt, Gargoyle, and OpenWRT, with ongoing development and active forums. The Tomato forum here seems to have more direct responses from the devs than some of the other firmwares. Unfortunately not every device supports third party firmware. If you want to run a particular firmware, choose a compatible router or join the development effort.

    Some dev is on beta for r7000 and could be for r6300 too.
