    First, thanks to Shibby and Toastman for all of your dev work. You guys are champs and I am a huge fan of the work you do. :D

    I am a long time E3000 user and have been enthusiastically using Tomato firmware from the first TeddyBear builds. I recently added an E3200 to the mix and have had varying degrees of instability with both Shibby and Toastman builds... either the 5 GHz radio doesn't appear on boot, or the router becomes unstable over time. The logs didn't give me any good indication of what was happening, so I tried custom compiling some firmware on a whim. Everything works flawlessly now, though I can't offer any explanation as to why...

    I had been using my E3200 as my edge router, with the E3000 acting as a WDS bridge downstairs... but more recently I have reversed the setup, preferring for the E3200 to provide better coverage downstairs. I compiled two versions, one with VPN when I was using the E3200 at the edge, and one with literally everything I can disable turned off.

    Both versions are stripped down... no IPv6, no JFFS, no Samba, no PPTP... no anything really, except for USB support which is needed for 5 GHz operation and OpenVPN. My router runs great, and I thought I'd share this experience with the community.

    Here's a link to the bare bones version:

    Here's a link to the bare bones + VPN version:

    Keep in mind, these are 'no frills' versions that may not have the features you've become used to. The source is Shibby version 109.

    Hopefully this will help some of you...

    Please provide MD5, SHA1, and/or SHA256 checksums of your firmwares (and what filename each hash is associated with). If you think it isn't important, you'd be wrong -- an example is in this thread.
