Which current model ADSL modem router for DD-WRT, OpenWRT or Tomato?


Hello

What are the pros and cons of various current model ADSL modem routers for use with DD-WRT, OpenWRT or Tomato?

There are, of course, hardware compatibility lists (HCLs) for each of these (DD-WRT, OpenWRT and Tomato) but many of the models are no longer available and there are so many that researching them all would be onerous. Many pages on the Internet recommend the WRTG54L and that would be great but it is no longer an option except second user which is increasingly difficult.

What are the pros and cons of the various chipsets: ADM5120, AR7, IXP4xx and BCM63xx?

Best

Charles

What do you mean it's no longer an option?

That's a very nice way of being proved wrong, AlucardZero

I wonder if it is still the "best" model to use ... and how to import it to India (Newegg will not ship to India, Amazon UK will not ship this item to India ... another "personal import" coming up!).

EDIT: have just emailed my local suppliers in case they can pull the rabbit out of the hat.

I use Tomato on a WRT54GL and like it a lot. I have cable, though, and I don't know how DSL works. It's just a router, not a modem.

Ooops! Yes -- being a router only would be less convenient. Thanks for pointing it out.
