Anyone really good at flashing?
Posted by: pRICE cUBE

I am currently looking at different routers. Many say you can gain stability by flashing Tomato firmware. This also opens it up for being used with a VPN if needed. They caution that it can brick your router though? I am a GUI person. Is this something an idiot like me could take on?

Seriously it is pretty idiot proof. I was able to resurect routers that others bricked via command line.

I loaded Tomato on my ASUS a few years back and kind of "forgot" that I had two routers in my house. Just need to make sure your router is supported by TOMATO.

Flashing is the easy part. Not getting caught is more difficult.

You'll be fine.

(In extreme situations you'll need to type what you're told to.)

We use an older Buffalo router (whr56). It was a very solid router, rarely needing a restart, maybe twice a year. 4-5 years ago I flashed it to Tomato because I wanted to have more control/features than the standard software supplied. Not only did I love the new features/controls, but I haven't had it rerest AT ALL since it was flashed.

So if I totally screw this up and brick it, it can be resurrected. I guess I will proceed. boink smiley

I screwed up the procedure a few times and just reset it to factory settings.

Buffalo sells some of their routers with DD-WRT already installed. All the open source goodness, none of the flashing required on your part. Or are you wed to Tomato?
