Alternative Router Firmware with Tomato

Recommended Posts

Just a Tech Tip I thought I'd share. If anyone has an old router laying around you might be able to overhaul it and use it again by 'Flashing' a different firmware to it such as Tomato.

For a while i had the old white Xbox 360 and did not want to pay for the overpriced Wifi adapter. I happened to have an old Buffalo router laying around and tried to create a wireless bridge. I thought the factory dashboard was a pain in the ass and I wasn't getting anywhere with it. After installing Tomato it was a lot easier to figure out and it seemed to give access to more of the router's functions.

I like finding cool free tools like this that give consumers willing to try them more options. Another similar firmware is DDWRT.
