    I have had some connectivity issues and thought it may be because I am using the basic firmware version (1.25). Which MOD would you guys recommend for use with the following Broadcomm Chipset: BCM4315 / BCM22062000 ?

    What kind of issues are you having?
    If you having issues with Intel wireless cards try the ND version of Tomato.
    To find out if your router is compatible with it use the following command:
    nvram show | grep wl0_corerev
    if it returns wl0_corerev=9 you are able to use the ND version of Tomato.

    I need to check the logs in more detail, but I lose Internet connectivity, looking from the pc end, I have to REPAIR my connection (Windows Vista based box) and sometimes internet is restored, other times it is not.

    It may be a flaky DSL connection, although my DSL SYNC LED on my modem is steady, during this time, of course, I suppose that doesn't completely rule out a problem with my ISP though!

    OK! I thought it was wireless related.
    How is your DSL modem set? Bridge? Half-bridge? Routed?
    If you are using in bridge modem with PPPoE authentication in your Tomato router, check the Connect mode if it is set to connect on demand.

    Modem is in bridge mode, and connect mode is keep alive.

    Do you mean, the client connects to the router, but is not issued an address by DHCP and thus can't do anything? The router receives no communication from the client. I see this behaviour a lot, usually associated with Intel wireless cards in laptops, occasionally with Atheros cards - and usually with computers running Vista. Sometimes a fixed IP will work, sometimes not. Interestingly, replacing Vista with Windows 7 RC seems to stop it happening, I've done this with 3 clients now and am keeping my fingers crossed.
