    I have a Linksys WRT54G, and it's a great little router. I have been using the DD-WRT firmware for it and love it, but I have begun to crave bandwidth monitoring from the router. The Tomato firmware offers the charts/graphs that I want but the newest firmware of DD-WRT (2.4) offers something too. I just upgraded to DD-WRT 2.4 and it's nice, but I'm curious about people's experience with both.

    I really like DD-WRT and so there is no huge desire to switch, but maybe there's something on Tomato that I'm missing?

    I've had both, and I liked Tomato better, mostly due to the UI. I also liked the way the QoS worked.

    I really like DD-WRT and that would be my recommendation, but then I've never used Tomato before.

    Darn, now I have that song stuck in my head. :D
