What is Tomato Firmware / QoS?

Tomato is a popular firmware that comes installed on some routers. It does the basics, but Tomato also offers a wide range of features, including VoIP favorite, bandwidth monitoring (QoS).

QoS

QoS, or Quality of Service, is a feature in some routers (and Tomato firmware) that allows you to allocate bandwidth to favor VoIP phones, for example. Essentially, the phones take bandwidth priority over all other devices, including computers. This usually helps maintain good call quality.

Why we use Tomato

Tomato has QoS that can allocate bandwidth by a percentage. Other services, including routers that can do this, are very pricey.

Devices

  • Linksys WRT 54 GL ~ We will set up Tomato
  • Netgear WNR 3500L V2 ~ We will not set up firmware.

We refuse to brick (break) a router we are unable to warranty. If you would like the proper Tomato firmware installed, we recommend you buy the router from Nextiva. Our routers come with Tomato pre-installed.
