Tomato Firmware

One of my Solaris quality engineering team's responsibilities is to develop tests for x86 WiFi. Because of our involvement in WiFi, I recently learned about Tomato Firmware.

From the Tomato Firmware web site:

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.

This wiki has a bunch of useful information on Tomato. I'd recommend for anyone interested in WiFi to take a look and try this firmware out.

Also be sure to check out Wireless Networking for OpenSolaris.
