WRT54G and IPv6

    I have an old Linksys WRT54G v4 router sitting around that I'd like to setup as a backup for my existing router (E2500). I'd like to set it up so that it supports IPv6 since my internet provider (Comcast) is already offering that.

    Seems that I should be able to do it using tomato-K26-1.28.RT-MIPSR1-116-MiniIPv6.trx firmware however, I'm unable to load it. When I try it I get an "File is too big to fit in MTD". The only one I've been able to load is the tomato-K26-1.28.RT-MIPSR1-116-Mini.trx that is a bit smaller.

    Is anyone aware of a way of getting IPv6 working on such an old router?

    Very unlikely. There is just not enough flash space to accomplish this (hence the error message you got; mtd = refers to the command used to store data in flash). DD-WRT may offer a "super tiny IPv6" for the WRT54Gv4, but I can assure you this is not going to be a focus on TomatoUSB. The general recommendation at this point is for people to purchase a newer router with larger flash space.

    OK, thanks :( Thought the WRT54G was the king of the open firmware party. I guess it is showing its age...
