Hi Jim,

Upon review, it looks as though I may have sidetracked, if not
hijacked your thread. Sorry about that. I should have started a new
subject for the Tomato stuff.

In any case, I'm glad to hear that DD-WRT is getting better. The
stability problems I was having could easily have been due to some
specific configuration. I really never looked into it deeply enough to
find out. What I will say about Tomato is that the interface does a
better job of warning or enforcing some config rules so that it's
harder to configure it in ways that would result in problems (e.g.
restricting the wireless encryption options when WDS is enabled). So
it could be that I was using an unwise combination of settings and
just didn't read enough to find the problem. I have yet to come up
with a task for tomato that it doesn't support, but I'm not the most
prolific user of QoS and some of the other more advanced routing
