Re: Liked Tomato but had to go back to dd-wrt

I was waiting for someone to point out the difference so clearly before I chimmed in.

Tomato; good introductory and average home user firmware
DD-WRT; good power user or feature step up from Tomato
openWRT; the industrial strength monster but it's all ssh/cli

There is also a fork/parillel of openWRT with a garphic interface but I've found DD the best out of the bunch without taking the time to learn router admin purely by cli.

DD-WRT makes my home network a happy place and I've now two clients using it in production settings. (the wrt350n is my prefered hardware these days for it)
