Cannot reboot router with Shibby Tomato (RT-N66U)

    Hallo everybody.
    I am becoming crazy and I do not know how to solve.
    I sometimes need to reboot my router and, each time I do it, it hangs.
    I thought it was a time problem... but I waited form more tha 15 minutes... no reboot at all.
    It looks like it hangs.
    Now I am on Shibby 121 and I have the same issue.
    Moreover I sometimes have the same issue when a configuration change requires a router rebbot.
    How could I trace the stack to understand when it hangs?
    Someone had same problem?
    Any advice?

    Thanks in advance

    Luca

    That's weird... I'll check when I get home, but I don't remember any issues rebooting the router from the GUI on both 119 and 120.

    Have you erased the NVRAM after you installed the firmware? I guess that you did, but it is always worth asking, especially if you have upgraded it through the GUI.

    I always erase NVRAM :(
    BTW, this happens since version 116.
    I do not really understand where to look for the problem.
    I have several DHCP reservations, a ppp0 connection always on, a pendrive on USB port, some QOS... nothing else.
    I cannot find a clue :(

    Just a guess: have you tried rebooting without the pen drive?

    I think so, but I have to check again. I'll report asap.

    It's not the pen drive...

    Just a guess. Have you tried:
    1. Reset button at the back of the router
    2. 30-30-30 reset

    When you erased your NVRAM, how did you restore your configuration? Did you restore it via a configuration file?

    I just rebooted my RT-N66U running Shibby Tomato build 120 AC through the GUI and it came back without issues for approx. 75 sec.

    Remove the pendrive from the USB port and report back. (If this fixes the problem I won't be surprised, and no it's not an acceptable solution, but it will help narrow down the issue)

    Ok, yesterday evening I made several test.
    These are the steps:

    I shut down my router.
    I put it in recovery mode.
    I open http://192.168.1.1 and in the MiniWeb Asus CFE i choose "Erase NVRAM".
    I turn off the router again.
    I open firmware restoration utility.
    I power on the router pressing reset button until it is in recovery mode.
    I upload the Tomato Shibby 121
    I wait for the process to complete.
    I SSH the router and erase NVRAM.

    After the reboot I configured everything from scratch.
    No pen drive attached.
    Only:
    WiFi 2,5 Ghz
    WiFi 5 Ghz
    Lan
    DDNS
    DHCP reservations
    Port forwarding
    VPN PPTP Client

    That's it...
    It does not reboot anymore again.

    When I erase the NVRAM, is it possible that something remains somewhere?
    I ask because, yesterday evening, I remembered several months ago when trying Merlin, DD-Wrt, Tomato, etc.
    If my memory helps me, I think it does the same thing with other firmware. This evening I want to test DD-WRT.
    Could it be something not erased completely?
    Or someone of my wireless clients?

    Thx

    Luca

    You can erase the NVRAM using the GUI - no need to SSH to do it or use recovery mode. Have you tried to reboot from the GUI after you flashed Tomato, but before making any configuration changes?

    I will try this evening.

    Looks like I solved...
    I had a VPN connection to my office router.
    When enabling it, the router did not reboot.
    Now I moved to a new VPN connection to a Windows 2008 server and looks like the reboots are working fine... finger crossed :)
