Supports both.
It does? I can't find any confirmation for tomato, and v1 and v2 are officially unsupported by DD-WRT.

This, there are tons of refurb cisco units out there for $20 or so and these are good units. Very reliable with DDWRT and some even have 5Ghz support.

Rosewill RNX-N150RT often goes on sale for $15 (it was $16 with free shipping at Newegg last week - but back up to $25 now)

Just go with the Linksys E2500 or the E1500 refurb from Amazon.

E2500 is $40.10 http://www.amazon.com/Refurbished...sys+refurb

E1500 is $29.99 http://www.amazon.com/Cisco-Links...sys+refurb

Both options are DD-WRT compatible, come with free shipping, and are Prime shipping eligible. Once you have DD-WRT up and running they'll be a great bargain router.

After ordering a deal immediately delete your deal alert. You got your item; you don't want it shipped with a side of remorse.
