    Hi,

    I just wanted to tell you that i finished Tomato-ARM7 for this router. Why ARM7? Because this Tomato is using Broadcom SDK7 and include Wireless Driver 7.14.43.40 (r527781).

    This is also first Tomato with new DHD wireless driver.

    Przechwytywanie.JPG

    What works:
    - WAN/LAN and all 3 wireless interfaces (1x 2,4GHz and 2x 5GHz)
    - VLAN and CTF
    - USB & Tuxera NTFS Driver
    - 4G/LTE modems (Hilink and non-Hilink)
    - all LEDs

    Know issue:
    - QMI support is broken
    - JFFS support is broken

    TODO:
    - implement "Smart Connect" feature

    Next step:
    - add support for Netgear R8000

    Good job!

    I recommend switching to Asus's brcmnand-based implementation. I switched to it for all their ARM routers, saved me a lot of trouble (with the RT-N66 and RT-AC66 I was using my own mtd partition layout) since everything is already implemented in the kernel. The only tricky part is in rc/jffs2.c - when checking if the partition filesystem is squashfs or jffs2, you must remember that MIPS and ARM have different endiness.

    What's the "new DHD wireless driver"?

    Also, will the newer SDK make it's way back to potentially compatible chipsets like the R7000? (I assume this because the R7000 uses the same CPU…)

    Same CPU but different wireless SoC.

    DHD (Dongle Host Driver) is for the newer Broadcom chips. Those newer wireless SoC have their own CPUs. DHD basically uploads a small firmware to the radios, which then handle some of the things that were originally handled by the main CPU. This should, in theory, improve performance versus the previous generation of SoCs.

    Code:
    Jul 31 20:00:15 kernel: DHD: dongle ram size is set to 1835008(orig 1835008) at 0x200000

    Jul 31 20:00:15 kernel: dhdpcie_ramsize_adj: Adjust dongle RAMSIZE to 0x1c0000

    Jul 31 20:00:15 kernel: dhdpcie_bus_write_vars: Download, Upload and compare of NVRAM succeeded.
    
    Broadcom's Xstream platform (as used by the RT-AC3200 and R8000) were the first to use that. Same with the new RT-AC88U/RT-AC3100/RT-AC5300.

    Congratulations on the milestone Shibby, and many thanks.

    Just wondering, when the RT-AC3200 was originally released, it received a lot of negative reviews for its implementation of Broadcom Smart Connect, with many devices constantly disconneting. Is this feature enabled in tomato usb? Do you have the router yourself shibby? How has your experience with it been?
     
  6. shibby20

    shibby20 Network Guru Member

    Smart Connect is not implemented now in Tomato. All 3 wireless interfaces have separeted configuration. In AsusWRT you can enable/disable Smart Connect functionallity if you want.

    Yes, i have one RT-AC3200 but i didn`t use it as my primary router yet (use it as development sample) but i tested it for few days and i didn`t have any issue with wireless connection. When i add Smart Connect in the future i propably will switch from current R7000 to AC3200 :)

    the wl chip of RT-AC3200/R8000 is BCM43602 fullmac
    the wl chip of R7000 is BCM4360 softmac

    4360 uses a softmac driver (802.11 stack running in kernel) whereas 43602 uses a fullmac driver (802.11 stack running on device).

    The main advantages of HardMAC is that since the MAC firmware functions are implemented in hardware, they contribute less CPU load (and most important 43602 has OpenWRT support just now)

    The advantages of SoftMAC are the possibility to upgrade to newer standards and correct faults in the MAC implementation by updating the driver only

    Interesting and thanks for the info.

    I currently have a RT-N66U (and have been using your excellent firmware for many years, many thanks). Thinking of upgrading and retiring the old router to my parents' house. I've been eyeing the RT-AC68U but now that you've added support for RT-AC3200, suddenly it's in my shortlist as well.

    Here in Australia, the AC68U is about A$200 while the AC3200 is about A$300 so there is about a 50% price difference. Is the AC3200 worth it in your opinion? A lot of people have been saying that Xstream and MU-MIMO are just gimmicks, and that AC1900 provides as good an experience. What's your take on this?

    Also, I'm going to assume that Tomato will not be supporting the AC-87U because that is Quantenna based?

    @shibby20

    Could you make a WAN to LAN speed test on the RT-AC3200 with and without CTF.
    Maybe you will get a record :)

    I would like to buy a router (supported by Tomato) that could get me the closest possible to 1 Gb/s with PPPoe and without CTF, so I'm interested in the possibilities of the RT-AC3200.
     
  11. RMerlin

    RMerlin Network Guru Member

    You won't get anywhere close to that without CTF. The RT-AC3200 might give you around 450-500 Mbps at best.

    Malakai Networkin' Nut Member

    I was expecting the fact that it won't get to 1Gb/s, but I was hoping for something like 700 Mbps, knowing that the R7000 could already get to 400-500 Mbps (here, here and here).
     
  13. jerrm

    jerrm Network Guru Member

    There's nothing in the specs to make it's routing performance any better than the R7000. Maybe some marginal improvements with a new chip set, but it's still the same basic 256MB RAM/Dual 1Ghz ARM system.

    Malakai Networkin' Nut Member

    Ok, thanks for the info. It will make me save some money and buy the R7000 instead of the AC-RT3200, as my first requirement is to get the most from the WAN-LAN speed (all my wireless devices in the house are at the most 802.11n on 2.4GHz, so no 5GHz, but maybe in the future).
    I suppose that the speeds on OpenVPN (be it client or server) will be the same no matter if I use the R7000 or the AC-RT3200, and as my RT-N16 is quite good with the usb speeds I expect that one to be at least the same for the R7000. So R7000 it will be :)

    isnt xstream platform for 2X5GHz radios?

    i know the RT-AC5300 has 2X5GHz radios but i dont think the RT-AC88U or RT-AC3100 have 2 5GHz radios?

    also on another note merlin, do you know the different between these routers?

    is it simply that one of them has 8 lan ports and the other has 4? is the CPU different? RAM? etc

    cheers
     
  16. RMerlin

    RMerlin Network Guru Member

    I wrote that Xstream were the first. I never said they were the only ones :) All the newer BCM designs also use it.

    The only difference between the RT-AC88U and RT-AC3100 is the extra four ports Realtek switch (for a total of 8 LAN ports), and the red accents on the antennas. The rest of the hardware and software features are identical.
     
  17. RMerlin

    RMerlin Network Guru Member

    It might have slightly better wireless performance, since the BCM43602 wireless SoC used by the RT-AC3200 has its own CPU (hence, some of the work is offloaded from the main CPU onto this one - that's what dhd does).
     
  18. RMerlin

    RMerlin Network Guru Member

    Same BCM4709 @ 1GHz CPU, so routing performance should be nearly identical.

    I hope the wireless would be better, no point to it otherwise, but as you said routing should be about the same. I guess I don't fit the target market - I don't really care about the wireless much.

    I'm more interested in the RTAC88U class equipment with 1.4ghz core. I know you have a version for the RTAC88U - will @shibby20's work on the RT-AC3200 be applicable to it as well?
     
  20. Connor McCaffrey

    Connor McCaffrey Networkin' Nut Member

    good answer, i understand now and exactly what i thought about RT-AC3100 and RT-AC88U :)

    and not trying to answer merlin for him jerrm but merlins platform is based of asus-wrt so i believe this is what makes merlin able to do it, i think if shibby wants to get stuff working on RT-AC88U or RT-AC3100 i dont think any of merlins work will do much for him unfortunately :( however Merlin is great at helping everywhere he can!

    thanks for the info man

    good thread
     
  21. RMerlin

    RMerlin Network Guru Member

    It will help. But the SDK version used by the AC88/AC3100/AC5300 is different, which means another separate kernel. Plus all the usual work involved in adding new models. Technically it's very doable. But it's always a matter of time, and having a sample router to work with. These new models ain't exactly cheap...

    jerrm Network Guru Member

    Hopefully @shibby20 will get there, was hoping it would be less work for him.

    Agree the price point on these new units are getting too high, but again this is coming from a view where wireless is the least important option.

    An Intel NUC + smart switch + access point is less money and (other than wireless) much more powerful if routing/firewall if the main need.

    I bought AC87U when it was announced and was waiting shibby's firmware, dd-wrt killed my AC87U, now I'm waiting a usb programmer. I was donating shibby several times, because I like his firmware, and was sure that he will do firmware for AC87U, but still no firmware, it's my first model of asus router without shibby :( sorry for my english.
    Shibby, please tell me, can we wait firmware for AC87U? Or I need repair it and sell? :(
     
  25. RMerlin

    RMerlin Network Guru Member

    RT-AC87U uses a different chipset (Quantenna), which would require a lot of work to implement in Tomato, and ultimately would only be for that specific model. Personally, I doubt Shibby would spend time developping for that model, especially with all the issues people have experienced with it. I expect that model to quickly disappear, as the RT-AC3100 will replace it.

    As toastman suggests, always buy a router that is already supported. It's kind of silly buying a new router and expect developers to support it.

    Strange enough, but nvram binary in this arm7 build has no 'setfb64' command, so it's impossible to use common way ti install custom TLS certificate as described on http://tomatousb.org/tut:use-ssl-certificate-for-wan-admin.

    Is there any reason to not include setfb64 feature in nvram binary?

    Update: Have solved this issue using base64 tool from entware's coreutils-base64 package to base64-encode certificate file and then nvram set https_crt_file="...".

    I've repaired AC87U by serial port. I don't think that somebody in my city will by it, at first because it is expensive router, second thing is that no warranty for it. I've installed again dd-wrt, but before I tried update AC87U's firmware from AC3200, first time it was loaded to login page, I've entered admin admin, but no access, then I rebooted it and it's not loaded, I looked at putty's window and if I correctly understand drivers are different or no drivers:

    Firmware looks great, shibby! I'm not seeing the 5ghz (eth3) band on any of my devices even though I set it up in the interface, however.

    I can confirm this — second 5GHz radio (eth3) is unusable for now, so I had to disable it. It sometimes can be briefly visible by clients (with very low signal strength), but never succeed to connect.
     
  34. ceasley

    ceasley Networkin' Nut Member

    I finally got the eth3 5Ghz interface working. I had to change the channel away from "Auto" and choose a channel manually.
     
  35. guardian

    guardian Serious Server Member

    This don't work for me. Can you please provide your eth3 settings, including advanced wireless settings (especially "country / region")?
     
  36. ceasley

    ceasley Networkin' Nut Member

    Sure!

    MAC Address -----------------------
    Wireless Mode Access Point
    Wireless Network Mode Auto
    Interface Status Up (LAN)
    Radio Enabled
    SSID -------------
    Broadcast Enabled
    Security WPA2 Personal (PSK) + AES
    Channel 136 - 5.680 GHz
    Channel Width 80

    And for the advanced settings:

    Wireless Settings (5 GHz / eth3)
    Afterburner Disable
    AP Isolation Disable
    Authentication Type Auto
    Basic Rate Default
    Beacon Interval 100 (range: 1 - 65535; default: 100)
    CTS Protection Mode Disable
    Regulatory Mode Off
    Country / Region UNITED STATES
    Bluetooth Coexistence Disable
    Distance / ACK Timing 0 meters (range: 0 - 99999; 0 = use default)
    DTIM Interval 1 (range: 1 - 255; default: 1)
    Fragmentation Threshold 2346 (range: 256 - 2346; default: 2346)

    Transmission Rate Auto
    Interference Mitigation None
    WMM Enable
    No ACK Disable
    APSD Mode Enable
    Wireless Multicast Forwarding Disable

    I am curious about the transmit power. These units should go up to 1000mw, shouldn't they? The coverage doesn't seem *quite* as good as with the default firmware, but it's very close.
     
  37. guardian

    guardian Serious Server Member

    It's magic! I've applied all your settings bit-by-bit, and now I have eth3 working. The question is — which of my previous settings (channel? country? transmit power?) was preventing radio from being ok.

    Going to make some experiments.

    Ceasley, thank you very much!
     
  38. Connor McCaffrey

    Connor McCaffrey Networkin' Nut Member

    probably country thats most likely what caused it

    i highly recomend against setting tx power at 400mw, i use 40mw personally with R7000 and have great range
     
  39. ceasley

    ceasley Networkin' Nut Member

    I tried 40mw and it barely reaches outside the room it's in :( I guess I'll stick with the 300-400mw range.
     
  40. Connor McCaffrey

    Connor McCaffrey Networkin' Nut Member

    Crazy, i have always been scared more then 200mw would burn out the radio but thats probably just me being paranoid

    No real congestion on the 5ghz bands. To be fair, the 2.4Ghz band reaches from one end of the house to the other without issue at ~75-100mw. It's just the 5Ghz bands that have range issues.

    Oh, and as for the bomb shelter comment...this house *was* built in 1951, so...who knows what's in the walls. ;)

    1mW on my AC68U with 3rd party 9dbi antennas covers my 3500sq ft house with no problem at all, as well as a good portion of the remaining 7200 yard!

    Even 5Ghz has pretty good reach down the far end of the house.
     
  45. Connor McCaffrey

    haha yeah exactly im curious of the actually data 1mw vs 40mw (default) vs 400mw makes, i find anything past 100 just creates noise and decreases throughput

    The Tomato firmware for the RT-AC3200 is stable for me, but I noticed the logs are being spammed with this:

    Code:
    Dec 17 18:39:29 unknown daemon.warn miniupnpd[30435]: SendSSDPNotify(): truncated output (512>=512)
    I seem to recall a fix for this a while back by changing the Linux kernel name or something. Again, not a terribly big deal, but when I'm digging through the logs to find something, this makes it pretty difficult.

    Good job!

    Any ETA on the R8000? I could buy the AC3200 but acording to tests it uses twice at much power in idle than the R8000. In danish prices that is about $80 more than the R8000 over 4 years.

    My understanding is that there's been a fix released by the developers of UPnP, but has not been deployed by Shibby yet. For the time being, you can either disable UPnP, or try this that koitsu has mentioned below.

    While this sounds good in practise, it's actually very bad to do what you're doing there. In-place modification of lines of a log file managed by syslog is a Very Bad Idea, mainly because this command has absolutely no way of knowing if syslog itself is already in the process of writing to the file. If it is, the end results will be a corrupted log file. Please don't do this, or do it this way.

    Furthermore, your sed in-place match and replace is going to delete any log line that has the string "SSDP" in it. I would suggest making that a little more specific to risk impacting anything else.

    So, if you really want to do this, then you need to fully stop syslogd, do the modification, then start syslogd again:

    Code:
    service syslogd stop
    sed -i '/SendSSDPNotify/d' /tmp/var/log/messages
    service syslogd start
    
    Be aware that anything being logged to syslog during the time the daemon is down will be lost. There's nothing one can do about this.

    You might think that simply sending a SIGHUP to syslogd would suffice -- no, it will not. syslogd keeps open the file descriptor of the log file it's writing to at all times. It therefore, very likely, internally keeps track of the file offset position it's at in the open fd. If you change the file in-place like you proposed, this will end up screwing up the file offset position (possibly it refers to something past EOF, or something erroneous otherwise), which usually results in NULLs being put into the file during the next syslogd write() call, or could even result in a crash. Proof that syslogd keeps open the log at all times (note fd 3):

    Code:
    root@gw:/tmp/home/root# pidof syslogd
    3133
    root@gw:/tmp/home/root# cd /proc/3133/fd
    root@gw:/proc/3133/fd# ls -l
    lrwx------    1 root     root            64 Jan 25 17:38 0 -> socket:[18870]
    lrwx------    1 root     root            64 Jan 25 17:38 1 -> /dev/null
    lrwx------    1 root     root            64 Jan 25 17:38 2 -> /dev/null
    l-wx------    1 root     root            64 Jan 25 17:38 3 -> /tmp/var/log/messages
    
    In summary: please don't do what you proposed without shutting down the daemon first. Shutting it down ensures you can modify the file safely without risking corruption.

    Hi there Shibby and Merlin and All... my first post to this forum below...

    I bought an AC3200 TRENDnet Brand using the same Broadcom chipset AND basic design features that match-up exactly with the ASUS model. I see there is an effort to offer Tomato for the Netgear version of this AC3200 design too.

    I bought the TrendNet because the reviews were at least as good if not better than the ASUS and Netgear brands that were posted at Amazon. TrendNet also gives a 3 year Warranty which is much better than ASUS and Netgear.

    Also, I got it refurbished for $99 through TrendNet's Amazon store. More available now if interested.

    My question is why doesn't Shibby and Merlin offer Tomato for this same router design too? It sells for less, has better Amazon ratings, and comes with a 3 year warranty too???????

    Can it be that difficult to port this same Tomato version over to the TrendNet model too? TEW-828DRU (AC3200) ...it's the same specs that the ASUS has.

    I would really love to try out the Merlin or Shibby Tomato versions that would work for the same AC3200 TrendNet model too. Any chance of this happening?

    Thanks for your good work and consideration too...

    I have an R7000 & R8000. I added a WRT1900ACv2, as the cpu is a dual core 1.6ghz. Got it for $199 at Walmart of all places.... :)

    Just installed this on a fresh AC3200, everything seems to be working fine except that there seems to be no way to set either of the 5Ghz eths to use AC, only Auto, N, or A as available for "Wireless Network Mode". Is that to be expected and AC isn't actually available with this firmware yet, or am I just blatantly misunderstanding something, or?

    I honestly find them to be the same. range. just a 2nd 5ghz radio on the r8000. Same processor too.

    I am using the r8000 as an access point, with the wrt1900acv2, as the main gateway.
    The R7000 is gathering dust.

    Hi!

    Sorry if my english is poor. I installed the "tomato-RT-AC3200-ARM--132-AIO-64K.trx" Tomato by Shibby FW after the router unboxing from the Asus router webpage. I need push a reset and I can use it the tomato FW GUI, I take all settings.
    But I want to use the USB2 or the USB3 port on router with a USB2 HDD rack or a USB3 HDD rack the read and write speed is very very poor.
    On USB2 port:

    - USB3.0 card reader + 2gb microSD with EXT3 filesystem
    Samba:
    READ: max. 2MB/s
    WRITE: max 6MB/s

    FTP:
    READ:max 2MB/s
    WRITE: max 10MB/s


    - USB2 rack with HDD 320GB with NTFS filesystem
    Samba
    READ: max 2MB/s
    WRITE: max 7MB/s

    FTP:
    READ: max 2MB/s
    WRITE: max 9MB/s

    On USB3 port the same hardwares the same results!!!

    What is the problem with my router? Anybody use this router with same speed?
    How can I solve this speed problem, what need I do? I need wait the next FW version from Shibby?

    Thx the replys.

    Just a heads up that it appears inbound QoS does not work on the 3200. I have Shibby's firmware installed and the outbound works fine, but the inbound doesn't function regardless of settings.

    I have upgraded my router from a linksys E1200 to an Asus RT AC3200.
    I ran tomato firmware on the linksys but given the distance from my router I was having dropout issues so upgraded to get better coverage.
    I am running tomato firmware on the Asus and everything is working really good except access restriction.
    It worked flawlessly on the old router but now I can only disable wireless on every device but when I enter either the mac address or ip address of the kids devices it doesn't work. I have assigned static ip addresses to each device, used the mac address, used both but still gets internet access.
    Has anyone had this experience......might just have to go back to the old router....

    First: excellent work Shibby. Thank you for everything you do.

    I've got my RT-AC3200 all set up, and it seems to be running very well. The only issue I've encountered is that when I have CTF enabled I can't access my webservers on the LAN. I also have Port Forwards set up for those, and I can access them externally but not from inside the LAN. I disabled CTF and can now access the webservers again.

    Edit: I also re-enabled CTF and disabled the Port Forward and can access the webserver from within the LAN again. So there is definitely something going on between CTF and Port Forwarding.

    Anyone else run into this?

    The R8000 is based on last year's Xstream platform, using a BCM4709. You are mixing it with the R8500, which is based on the second generation of Xstream, using a BCM47094 (and BCM4366 for wifi).

    @shibby20

    I recently changed my router from RT-N16 to RT-AC3200, and immediately changed to use your firmware.
    However, it did not work. With 132, I managed to connect to the router using telnet, but it didn't work any further than that, no dhcp, no httpd, no web interface etc..., And with 133, even the telnet won't work, I could not connected to or even ping the router. I am not sure if I miss anything during the flash process, but I did use the rescue mode and cleared the NVRAM. The Merlin firmware worked out fine, but I really want to use tomato-shibby, for I've used on my RT-N16 for years.

    My RT-AC3200 hardware version is 2.35, any suggestion?
     
  76. shibby20

    shibby20 Network Guru Member

    True. V133 has broker support for the router. I already have fixed it. New version will be able soon.

    I'm using v132 on my Asus RT-AC66U. Currently found out about entware and connected external Seagate st1000lm024 HDD. Tickbox next to spindown is checked, but the hdd is spinning all the time - even when log says it spins down. Can it be unsupported for this HDD or maybe there is some other ways to spin it down?

    Sorry if it's wrong thread to ask in.

    If you go to the download location of where you get the firmware and click on the K26ARM7 folder you'll see AC5300 isn't listed. My guess is it's not supported. I'm using AC3200 firmware on mine which works great btw.

    I can't post any links yet. :oops:

    It won't. The RT-AC5300 needs a newer SDK version than what the RT-AC3200 uses.

    I saw tomato-R8000-ARM--136-AIO-64K.zip file in this directory:

    http://tomato.groov.pl/download/K26ARM7/136-MultiWAN/

    So I flashed from dd-wrt kong build directly, and was in trouble to find out username/passwd as dd-wrt has them encrypted. I had to use the method Shibby described to log into port 223 with out password, and use "nvram get username/passwd" to recover to login, then delete nvram there.

    Now everything is up and running on my R8000.

    Is the RT-AC3200 at the moment the best Router for Tomato to buy? Or is there any other better than that one?

    be frankly, I think R7000 or RT68P is good enough, unless you must have 2nd 5Ghz channel.

    Hello, I flashed tomato-RT-AC3200-ARM--136-VPN-64K.trx on my newly bought Asus RT-AC3200 using the Asus Firmware Restoration tool.
    Now the router boots up, and I can connect by telnet 192.168.1.1 to it, but I can't access the web interface of it on 192.168.1.1.
    What did I make wrong? Or does the web interface has to be started separately?

    Found the solution myself: after upgrading from official ASUS firmware, press the reset button for 5 seconds.
    The router will reboot automatically... and the web interface will become functional again.
    Just in case it might help someone with the same issue.
