Tomato or DD WRT? and also need Python support

Hi, guys which firmware is more stable for r7000? Tomato or DD WRT? 

 

also, how do I go about installing Python on it? I guess I need an optware, which one you guys recommend?

Might also look at this.

Might also look at this.

There is another firmware option now for the r7000 if you are not aware. XWRT by XVortex. It is a modified version of RMerlin's firmware for the Asus products. HAs a great interface and is very stable on the r7000.  Provides lots of options like Tomato and DD-WRT do. Folks state that they never had as fast performance from their r7000 until they installed this. Even works well for folks with 1gig Internet connection. 

I have run Tomato and DD-WRT on my r7000. Never was real happy with them but were better then OEM. XWRT runs much better for me and I will not be installing the others again as things stand now. As long as XVortex keeps providing the RMerlin firmware for the r7000 I will stick with it. 

Here is link to info and download site.

Hi Bill,

Hi Bill,

 

Thanks for replying. Guess what, I did exactly that. Someone on DD WRT forums suggested me Xvortex and I installed it. I even wrote a noobie guide installation. Here's the link if someone comes looking - http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.php?threads/asuswrt-merlin-on-netgear-r...

 

However I have still not installed Python nor know how to do it. Will start googling and exploring soon. 

 

cheers!
