Tomato is a small, lean, open source alternative firmware for Broadcom-based routers. It features a new user-friendly GUI, a new bandwidth usage monitor, more advanced QOS and access restrictions, new wireless features such as WDS and wireless client modes, a higher P2P maximum connections limit, the ability to run custom scripts, connect via telnet/ssh, reprogram the SES/AOSS button, perform wireless site survey, and much more.
A router's graphical user interface is the most important part of the system because most users are unable or unwilling to configure a router by any other means. Tomato comes with a dated web interface with the option to change the color scheme but for some of us that is not enough. The interface simply feels out of date, out of style and in need of an update. AdvancedTomato enables you to keep all of the features of Tomato by Shibby and also upgrade your router's GUI to a clean and contemporary flat design. Users who demand a modern feature-filled firmware like Tomato deserve to explore those features using modern intuitive GUI like AdvancedTomato.
The open source community makes projects like mine possible. Without the projects listed below, AdvancedTomato wouldn't be what it is today.
