Firmware update: FreshTomato 2021.2

FreshTomato is Tomato-derived firmware for various Arm or MIPS based routers from ASUS, D-Link, Huawei, Linksys, Netgear, Tenda and Xiaomi. It can be seen as the continuation of ‘Tomato by Shibby’ since this developer, Michał Rupental, wants to devote his time to other projects. Compared to the original firmware from the manufacturer, the FreshTomato firmware adds several extra options, such as a real-time bandwidth monitor and extensive setting options. The developers released the second edition of FreshTomato in 2021 and it is available for routers with a Arm– or MIPSCPU.
