Routers can do a lot of things besides broadcasting the Internet signal. It can allocate the right kind of bandwidth for certain activities, limit the number of users (especially of the guests), and keep track of your bandwidth or overall Internet use. But most of these routers have very limited features.
Fortunately there are plenty of choices when it comes to alternative firmware. One of these is the Tomato. We aren’t really sure why it’s called as such, but the only thing that we can say is that it’s as good as many people’s favorite fruit.
