Just a heads-up. The amazing guy over at polarcloud has released the latest version of the popular open sourced, linux based firmware for broadcom based routers. Over time, it has become a lean, mean and easy to use alternative to stock firmware on many routers, and even getting better than other alternatives like DD-WRT.

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.

Please read the instructions, and make sure you the right version ( the newer ND version is for the Buffalo G125). If you don’t know what you are doing, DON’T do it!
