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.
I flashed the clubs Linksys WRT54GL with new firmware, I used Tomato version 1.20: http://www.polarcloud.com/firmware I changed the gateway from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1 so I would have no conflict with my network or with any other wireless routers.
I also changed the SSID from the default Linksys to SPCUG for ease of access.
Tomato v1.20 allowed me to “boost” the transmit power and I set the “Afterburner” feature which is similar to “SpeedBooster” in the newer Linksys model’s.
I set the channel to 7 from the default 6 to lessen the chance of interfering with other wireless units.
The interface is much nicer and easier to use, it also has some nice graphs!

Here are supported routers:
Linksys WRT54G/WRT54GS/WRT54GL's version
Look at the bottom side of the router to check for the version number, or compare the first 4 characters of the serial number with the following list:
CDF0/CDF1 = WRT54G v1.0
CDF2/CDF3 = WRT54G v1.1
CDF5 = WRT54G v2.0
CDF7 = WRT54G v2.2
CDF8 = WRT54G v3.0
CDF9 = WRT54G v3.1
CDFA = WRT54G v4.0
CGN0/CGN1 = WRT54GS v1.0
CGN2 = WRT54GS v1.1
CGN3 = WRT54GS v2.0
CGN4 = WRT54GS v2.1
CGN5 = WRT54GS v3.0
CGN6 = WRT54GS v4.0
CL7A = WRT54GL v1.0
CL7B = WRT54GL v1.1
CL7C = WRT54GL v1.1
CF7C = WRT54GL v1.1
If it's not listed above, and it's not a WRT54GL, it's not supported.
