I got it working with Linux using the CUPS admin panel, I got it working in Win XP and Vista setting up a TCP/IP connection. But in OSX I can't get it to work with CUPS, or the System Preferences using IPP or LDP. How exactly do I connect to a printer with Tomato USB on Asus RT-N16 from OSX?

Set it up as a JetDirect Printer, port 9100, and choose your normal USB driver. This can all be done in Leopard and Snowy via the SystemPrefs>Printer>AddPrinter…
Various Broadcom Routers Running TomatoUSB (or DD-WRT) with Airprint & Cloud Print

Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
* Open System Preferences
* Open Print & Fax
* Click the + button below the list of installed printers
* Select the toolbar button called 'IP'
* Set protocol to: HP Jetdirect - Socket
* Enter the address of your router followed by : and the port - ie. normally 192.168.1.1:9100
* Leave 'Queue' blank
* Set a friendly name for your printer (whatever you like)
* And a friendly location (again, up to you)
* Print Using: choose 'Select a driver to use' (On OS X 10.6, choose 'Select Printer Software')
* A list will pop up of all installed printer drivers - choose the one that works for you (see Note below)
* Add your printer
Note (Mac only): the driver must be compatible with the CUPS printing system, which is one of the two printing systems included in OS X. Certain printers e.g. Canon Pixma series and Epson Inkjet include OSX drivers which do not use CUPS. You may find compatible printer drivers from Gutenprint (free) or PrintFab ($). OS X Leopard appears to include certain Gutenprint drivers, but the quality may vary and it may be worth checking their website for updated versions, or try PrintFab.
