    Hello!
    This question must have been asked a million times. I've been searching but having a hard time finding.

    I've been running Tomato 1.28 on my WRT54G v3.1 for about 10 years (OMG!) as my broad band router. It works fine and I'm really happy with it :)

    Is there any reason to update the firmware in it? I'm mostly concerned by security updates? Or bug fixes?

    Are any of you still using the old purple router? :) What are you running? Any recommendations?

    Thanks in advance

    Tomato V1.28 is only 4.5 years old... my old blue units in storage, gigabit Ethernet, N wireless and usb means probably won't go back!

    Yes tomato 1.28 is not that old but there were earlier before? :)

    What model are you using? Do you use it as a file server? Or printer server? Both? :)

    I only use USB for local file storage, better than jffs for flash lifetime, and survives firmware change!
    I don't expect a router is ever going to be good as a fileserver, but I still have an nslu2 on the network (also interfaces to a TV box),
    I'm currently using an Asus RT-N66u as main router, with a Linksys E3000 as access point at other end of house, connected by a piece of telephone cable that doesn't support gigabit, this link currently limits my internet connection (100/6) - will be replaced with proper external grade Cat5e at some point. I also have another RTN66u to and a couple of RT-N16 to hack with, bought cheap and repaired!
