What is Tomato?

Tomato is a small, lean and simple replacement firmware for Linksys' WRT54G/GL/GS, Buffalo WHR-G54S/WHR-HP-G54 and other Broadcom-based routers. It features a new easy to use GUI, a new bandwidth usage monitor, more advanced QOS and access restrictions, enables new wireless features such as WDS and wireless client modes, raises the limits on maximum connections for P2P, allows you to run your custom scripts or telnet/ssh in and do all sorts of things like re-program the SES/AOSS button, adds wireless site survey to see your wifi neighbors, and more.

What is TomatoUSB?

Tomato USB is an alternative Linux-based firmware for powering Broadcom-based ethernet routers. It is a modification of the famous Tomato firmware, with additional built-in support for USB port, wireless-N mode support, support for several newer router models, and various enhancements. Supported Routers

Tomato USB supports many Broadcom-based routers from Asus, Linksys, Buffalo, Netgear and other manufacturers. See the documentation about the different build types for more details and for the list of models supported.

Development

Tomato USB is an Open Source project. If you would like to participate in the development, feel free to check out the source code from the Git Repository (if you're not familiar with Git, this Crash Course may help to get you started), and submit us your patches, or post the bug reports and your suggestions on the forum.

As a Linux-based firmware for WLAN routers, Tomato USB has a lot in common with many similar projects. We would like to thank the developers of those projects for sharing their ideas and making the source code available, which greatly helps us to continuously improve Tomato USB!

Broadcom Cut-Thru Forwarding

Broadcom Cut-Thru Forwarding (BCMCTF):teddy_bear wrote: The Broadcom proprietary closed-source CTF module is included into Tomato USB since build 53 (it came from recent Asus RT-N16 OEM firmware along with updated wireless driver) but disabled by default. Since it's a binary module, there's no way to figure out what exactly it does… If anyone is interested in testing it to see if it provides any throughput improvements, and/or causes any problems, you can enable it by setting nvram variable "ctf_enable" to "1" and rebooting the router. Feedback is welcome.
