Tomato is another 3rd party firmware. it only runs on 'classic' WRT54G*
whereas dd-wrt runs on a wider range. Tomato has a cleaner user
interface, quite good QoS ('traffic shaping') features, and is always
free, while the DD-Wrt project manager took DD-Wrt partially
proprietary, to the annoyance of a lot of the contributors who
understood it to be GPL.
pfSense is still my favorite choice, running on a low power miniboard
like the ALIX or various Atom mini-systems.
