    Been running tomato on WRT54G and WRT54GS for many years, and recently bought a RT-N16 for my folks, flashed the NON-N version "Kernel 2.6, MIPSR2 – newer routers like RT-N16" but I now understand it might be better with the "K26RT-N – MIPSR2 – special build" due to long reboot times.

    In any case my question is about CTF. Read a truckload on it, from 2011 on, more confused than ever, apologies. I don't think I need QoS, but wanted to try the "magical mystery CTF" to see if speed improved. The router is remote so I cannot access it (didn't enable remote access for security).

    I can't see CTF enabling in the screen shots (no Advanced Miscellaneous Screens) at http://tomato.groov.pl/?page_id=31

    Was CTF removed as suggested, or is it still in 108?

    • NVRAM Clear
    • CTF Enable Check

    I dont have CTF in my Tomato... (Victek. last beta version)...

    CTF setting was removed by Tedy Bear about 1year back... so no CTF now

    Well I think you are wrong............. there is anyway a checkbox to it, but unsure if it works.

    Do an "lsmod | grep ctf", you'll see if it loads anything.

    Seems to do nothing:

    Then ctf is not loaded (unless the old CTF implementation Tomato uses isn't implemented as a ctf.ko module like with the recent (but closed-source) implementation.

    Thanks all.

    Hmm. Last bits I can find on this are from tomatousb where a lot of folks seem to think there is not too much difference with low-speed consumer connections, there are stability issues, and if someone were to compile a stable version where the CTF module worked, it would be at the expense of other options. It seems after that interest in it just died and folks moved on.

    smallnetbuilder forums suggest the same.

    I don't use QoS, I guess I was just hoping there was a Tomato-CTF version (Tomato"lite" if you like) where CTF could be enabled with a warning that this disables QoS etc etc, but I guess this might just be ASUS stock firmware.

    There are really only a few things I use in the Router like the Tx power setting, static DHCP, DynDNS options, WOL Broadcast **, occasionally one of the Wireless modes available in Tomato but not in stock, and when the kids grow a little, some access limitations.

    ** this goes in the firewall script, found out how to do this about 8 years ago.

    If anyone knows of a version that does work with CTF, or development still active on it, I'd be grateful to be pointed to it.

    I am not wrong... In builds from Victek there is no option for this...because it was removed by Teddy in his builds in 2011. It is not working so this option is useless for now... Maybe someone could fix it ;)
