Tomato firmware on Buffalo G125 wireless router

Posted on May 4, 2008. Filed under: Technology | Tags: , , , , |

So I finally decided to go wifi, and got myself a Buffalo G125 router for around 2000 rupees. After struggling with the default firmware for a couple of days, i decided to try out third party firmware. And soon enough, i had my eyes on DD-WRT and Tomato. After messing up the install somehow, i finally managed to install the Tomato firmware.

I have to say i wasn’t very please the first few hours because the interface was very slow, and DNS requests were slow too. But after rebooting the router and my PC, everything start to fly around. This is one of the most simple and functional firmware i have seen. Configurable down to every single option, fast and easy are its traits.

I have connected my download rig, and my main rig to the router (it has 4 lan ports) and managed to save some money on the need to buy another external switch. All in all, if anyone is looking for a cheap wireless router, this is the one to go for!

By the way, there is a special version of tomato firmware for this particular model, so make sure you get that.

Update: Version 1.22 has been released! Offers plenty of tweaks and some interface changes. Download it here
