What is Tomato firmware? Think of it as software for your router. It’s free. It’s awesome. And we show you how to do cool things with it.
We carry you through the home network setup process. We’ll show you how to flash your router, secure your network, and much, much more.
Setup, manage, and leverage the potential of your home network. Create subnetworks, virtual networks, and wireless guest networks.
Gain remote access to your home network from anywhere in the world. Control computers from a remote location as if you never left the building.
TomatoUSB turns your router into a file server. Mount a flash drive or external hard drive you’ve got a centralized network storage appliance.
Improve your home network security. Stop Wi-Fi theft and block unauthorized users from connecting to your wireless network without your permission.
Say “good-bye” to monthly fees and small data plans. With a your own cloud, you don’t have to wonder where your personal files are stored.
Enable the media server and stream your music, pictures, and videos to any DLNA compliant device. These days, most devices are DLNA compliant.
Need a little more Wi-Fi range? You’ll finally know how to fix those dead spots, increase your Wi-Fi range, and improve your wireless performance.
Connect two wireless routers and extend your coverage area. Setup a router-behind-a-router. Or just share some Internet love with a neighbor.
Setup a secure VPN tunnel and take your home network with you. Fire up your notebook and secure your private activity on public (untrusted) networks.
Block websites, control bandwidth, monitor activity and set hours-of-service. Warning: If you have children or employees, they may not like you. 😎
Answer: Our material was designed primarily for beginners and intermediate skill levels. But we also cover some advanced topics too. So whether you are a complete newbie or just need a little help, our videos are only a click away. We keep “command line” stuff to a minimum so you don’t need to be a linux genius.
Answer: Tomato firmware is free to use and modify under the (GNU) General Public License. So if you already have a compatible router, it won’t cost you anything to install (other than a few minutes of your time).
Answer: Yes, of course. We don’t believe in holding you “hostage” by enforcing our copyright so strictly that it becomes an inconvenience to you. Heck, print the whole thing if you want to. Just don’t try to republish it or we’ll sick our lawyers on you, cool?
Answer: No. You get access to everything from the members area. In fact, after your purchase, you’ll be logged into the members area automatically –no waiting, no checking your email, no messing around. You pay and BAM! You’re logged in.
Answer: Troubleshooting and technical support is not included. Please remember that you are buying a product. And that “product” does not include: email and telephone support, troubleshooting assistance, consulting, or endless hours of free advice, etc. However, if you experience problems downloading or accessing the “product” that you paid for, we’ll work hard to resolve the issue for you.
We stand behind our product 100%. And we understand that it may not work for everyone, all of the time. But we must also protect ourselves from fraud and “chronic” refunders –people who buy and download our stuff with the full intention of asking for a refund.
So, here’s the scoop: WE HAVE A NO REFUND POLICY. And we don’t make exceptions for anyone, –ever. So please don’t ask for a refund or we’ll make fun of you, –publicly, like on facebook or something (ok, we wouldn’t really do that but you get the point).
HERE’S WHY: Refunds take time to investigate, approve, and process –which costs money. The result? Honest people like yourself end up paying a lot more, just so that dishonest people don’t have to pay anything at all. That doesn’t seem fair does it? So you see, our policy works well. It keeps everyone honest. And best of all, it allows us to deliver extraordinary value at fair and affordable prices.
