Reading through magazines for a new modem i saw some interesting firmware's that could increase the routers potential.
After been trying to research, I found out that it only works for "routers" only (please correct me if im wrong). After looking out how routers do not connect directly to the phone socket and needs to be connected to the modem.
I was wondering how it increases gaming and web browsing, since nothing is configured on the modem except for details to connect to the isp.
What i mean is that, if I do all this awesome overclocking and open firmware to increase performance which is then bottleneck by the modem.

In the end, i might be misunderstanding what tomato actually offers.
How can it help my gaming by any chance ?
Can anyone lead and explain to me how i can get better latency through router/modem. I've already done pc side tweaking and the distance between my exchange cannot be fixed.
