I have been using Tomato for awhile now on my Linksys e2500 and I really prefer it to DD-WRT, which I used previously on my e2500 and before that e1500. Unfortunately the e2500 will be out of commission for awhile due to a massive infection in my network.
I still have my e1500, which I know is supported, however, I also have a DIR-615 e3 which is not currently supported due to the atheros chipset. Because it is much easier to add a USB port to the D-link, I would like to use it instead of the e1500.
What I'm wondering is, would it be possible to use a kernel from another router distro such as DD-WRT with a Tomato userland?
I'm not exactly sure how much of what is considered to be Tomato exists as differences in kernel code and how much of the difference is in the system software.
If the primary differences are in kernel code, would it be possible to build a DD-WRT kernel which has the biggest tomato differences added in and a Tomato style kernel build config?
I apologize if this has been covered already. I am new on the forum and haven't found anything which specifically addresses this issue.
Thanks all and cheers!
