    For me, everything works on FreshTomato on the Asus RT-AC68U and NETGEAR R6300v2 router. I use WiFi Explorer software, MacOS:

    I recommend that you do practical tests with these software:

    As a practical example, on the Asus RT-AC6U router, with the original firmware, I do not have the same performance and efficiency in the use of ram, CPU and WiFI.

    When you say "everything works", do you mean that you are able to set the control channel to 44 or 48 if using 80MHz on 36, 40, 44, and 48? Also are you able to set it to 157 or 161 if you are doing 80MHz on 149, 153, 157, and 161?

    From your screenshot https://haydnet.files.wordpress.com/2017/07/wifi-explorer.png?w=588&h=343 it looks like you are using channel 48 as the control channel on a 40MHz channel (if you are talking about eduroam SSID), which is expected behavior of what we are trying to prove. If you change it to 80MHz, are you able to select 48 as the control sideband?

    These images are illustrative. They do not represent my network. But I have the WiFi Explorer software on my MacOS. I've even tested DD-WRT Arm and DD-WRT Kong. None of these firmwares win FreshTomato for WiFi performance. We can not debate proprietary firmware against an opensource firmware with opensource drivers.

    Hi
    I have just moved over from Advanced Tomato to Fresh Tomato on my Netgear R7000.
    I am having a wee issue with the OpenVPN server, I have the "Respond to DNS" box unticked in the Advanced Settings and have a Custom Configuration of push "dhcp-option DNS 192.168.10.12".

    The OpenVPN server still pushes the router as DNS server as well as manually configured DNS server to the clients.

    Any thoughts?
    Cheers!
    Dave

    Ok, then you've missed the point of the premise of my discussion of what channels are available to select as control channels for 80MHz channel width in Tomato.

    I was not debating that Tomato doesn't perform well, we're just discussing that it seems to be missing the ability to use any of the 4 channels in an 80MHz band as the control channel which may give the ability to adjust for slightly better performance in certain environments in which bands on the lower bands of the 80MHz band may have more utilization from neighboring networks to avoid putting the control channel on.

    In an example, using 80MHz width, Tomato seems to only give the ability of:
    1. Ceee, meaning: 36 (control), 40 (extension), 44 (extension), and 48 (extension)
    2. eCee, meaning: 36 (extension), 40 (control), 44 (extension), and 48 (extension)

    Not possible with Tomato from what I see is:
    1. eeCe, meaning: 36 (extension), 40 (extension), 44 (control), and 48 (extension)
    2. eeeC, meaning: 36 (extension), 40 (extension), 44 (extension), and 48 (control)

    DD-WRT gives 4 options to allow you to designate the control channel: lower lower, lower upper, upper lower, and upper upper. Tomato only allows you to do lower and upper, which is only giving the ability to select either of the bottom two of the four channels of the 80MHz range as the control channel. I still have the suspicion that this is a legacy thing because the control sideband setting was implemented when 40MHz ability came out (which may go back to original Tomato releases) but was never tweaked when 80MHz 802.11ac was rolled out besides just enabling an 80MHz channel width option in Tomato.

    Believe me, I am a FreshTomato ambassador. It is easily my favorite router firmware for a home environment to use, and I have been using it for about 8 years. I understand it's an opensource firmware and that development done on it is pretty much volunteer work. I appreciate all the contributions the developers are doing to maintain and improve FreshTomato. We're just diving into things that may make it even more versatile than it already is.

    I've seen people point out missing 5GHz channel selection on Tomato in forums for years, and this was more of an exercise to determine what is missing and maybe a little bit why it is missing when using 80MHz channel width. I have no expectation of someone coming up with a code modification to address it, although if they did, that'd be cool.

    Additionally, I notice when selecting EU in the Country / Region box on the 5Ghz Advanced Wi-Fi settings, only two of the channels are available, I believe that there should be seven or so?

    Well all of my devices had "DHCP reservations" (static IPs set on the router) but within the DHCP WL0.1 range. I'm not sure I knew that you could set a static IP outside the normal range, but I'll give it a go and see what happens.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Have you tried RMerlin's fw? I get great perfomancefrom RMerlin's on my 68U.

    Yes. But Merlin firmware performance sucks the maximum CPU and RAM. It warms my router a lot. FreshTomato is much superior.

    wetpaint Connected Client Member

    I cleared the NVRAM....again and started from scratch, it worked this time, however, i have a sneaky suspicion that if i tick "Respond to DNS", save settings, untick it and save again, it will still push the router as DNS to the OVPN client. I will make a backup while it is still working well and give it a go.
     
  11. wetpaint

    wetpaint Connected Client Member

    Ok, ignore me, i cannot replicate the issue, must have been improperly cleared NVRAM.

    The issue with the Wi-Fi channels persists though

    This is doubtless wishful thinking, but can my AdvancedTomato configuration be imported into a fresh install of FreshTomato?
     
  13. tripper22

    tripper22 Serious Server Member

    You can try. But I would take screenshots of everything that is important to you in case it doesn't work out and you have to perform a reset. A fresh install is recommended.
     
  14. Wizardknight

    Wizardknight Reformed Router Member

    I did a direct upgrade from Advanced Tomato to FreshTomato on a R6300v2, but that was awhile ago. Fresh installs are the best option as it makes troubleshooting easier. However be sure to make a backup of your system reguardless. Then if it give you trouble, you have something to fall back on.
     
  15. lepa71

    lepa71 Networkin' Nut Member

    It is a little bit hard to believe. I like tomato and has been using it on Linksys routers for a long time but when I tried it on my R7000 vs stock. The stock was much consistent and more throughput and range.
     
  16. tripper22

    tripper22 Serious Server Member

    Do you have a lot of AP's around you. I had to go to advanced - wireless - interference mitigation - set wlan auto and my wireless signal and throughput improved immensely. No problems since making that change. It can't hurt to try.

    Highly doubtful. My RT-AC88U right now sits at nearly 0% CPU usage...

    Code:

    Just wanted to report back that JoeDirte's suggestion about assigning devices to static DHCP outside the usual address range(s) seems to be working for me. EDIT: I am setting a DHCP reservation on the router, not the device.

    I have had up to 15 devices on the 2.4gHz band, a combination of static DHCP and ad-hoc DHCP and there are relatively few drops (I always have more drops on 2.4 than 5 due to frequency congestion in my residential area - selfish people with 40mHz bandwidth and clueless people with non-connected [IoT] devices clogging up the airwaves).

    For others experiencing limits with 2.4gHz (IoT or older devices), you might consider JoeDirte's suggestion.

    Thanks, JoeDirte!

    I have tried freshtomato 2018.3 on a R6250, R6300V2, R7000. They all show the same Wireless Client security bug which prevents them from connecting when any wireless security (WEP, WPA, WPA2) is applied to the wireless access point. This has been a known Tomato bug for quite a while and it looks like limited to all ARM routers (I will try on my EA6900). All works when the connection is not encrypted. Also, the router works in bridged mode.

    I would like to use these routers as they are "travel" sized with more processing power. I currently use Linksys E4200s to connect to hotel/conference WiFi, also my unlimited OnStar cellular 4G in my truck ($20/mo). These routers run TINC in TAP mode (bridge) which is another plus but would be nice to have more processing power. I love the simple TINC config in Tomato btw!

    Have you tried the interference mitigation under advanced wireless settings?
     
  23. user17600

    user17600 Reformed Router Member

    Yes, I have that enabled. 2.4gHz is really a secondary network for me. Most of my mission-critical connections are on 5gHz. It's just most of the IoT things don't see 5gHz - they have their own isolated AP (guest network).

    EDIT: My issue and comments were primarily directed toward the "10 device limitation" on 2.4gHz. The interference thing has never been a huge issue.

    I recently switched from Kong's DD-WRT to Tomato (first I tried Shibby's, but as there is nearly no further development going on there, I switched to FreshTomato).
    Have to say, the UI is amazing. Super easy to use, and with use of the theme's it's possible to notice instantly which router you are actually configuring at the time.

    I have 2 devices running FreshTomato for the moment.
    1) ASUS RT-AC68U as main router (wifi disabled)
    2) Netgear R6400 as AP (routing disabled, WAN & the 4 LAN ports are put in VLAN1, LAN(br0), WAN is disabled)

    I know theoretically the ASUS should have better speeds on the wifi-department, but for the moment there is not much else I can do placement-wise than to leave it like this.

    All is working well, and when it gets to wireless network I have full coverage in the entire apartment.

    The 1 thing I do find a bit annoying is the status page of the R6400.
    For some weird reason I have no "Ethernet Ports State" on the status page, which I do have on the Asus.
    This is something I use quite regularly to make sure the attached devices are all operating at gigabit speeds (our NAS for example tends to switch to 10/100 every now and then).

    Any reason why it could be disabled/hidden?
    I checked Ethernet Ports State - Configuration under Basic -> Network and "Enable Ports State" is ticked.
    Tried disabling -> Save -> Not available at status page.
    Tried enabling again -> Save -> Still not available at status page.

    Any help would be appreciated :)

    I am thinking to use the Asus + Freshtomato to do bandwidth limit for a internet cafe.

    8 years ago when tomato just got BLimiter function (Toastman era), We can set unlimited number of IPs.
    5 years ago (Victek era), we can set max 35 clients.
    3 years ago (Shibby and kille72 era), we are locked to like 65 clients max in BL list.

    Nowadays the devices are so powerful, can we unlock the number to unlimited (254) clients in the BL list again please? Would love to try it in a 150 computers shop and see how the router works.

    Thanks in advance!
     
  27. rgnldo

    rgnldo Serious Server Member

    This will depend on the CPU and RAM. 65 clients per router is the maximum you can choose. I suggest a solution with PFSense on a nini CPU.

    There is USB3 HDD connected to USB3 port. And daily script ended with "reboot" command.
    After daily reboot HDD not mounted and "lsusb" shows only 2 devices (USB 2.0 and 3.0 hubs).
    If I command "reboot" from console - after reboot all is fine and 3rd device is up.

    MC-Router API already in use; Errno(98): Address already in use.
    Now the error is
    user.warn igmpproxy[1516]: select() failure; Errno(4): Interrupted system call
    Still nothing is working, i cannot open any channel from any client.

    How difficult is it to support asus ac1900p? Since asus released the source already, It is not as simple as just rebase the tomato changes on top of the newer version sdk right? If I want to contribute where do I start ? The only reference is to check old tomato-arm shibby commits ? ( and see roughly how he switched to a newer sdk? yeah I can see that was not an easy job, it took a few months )

    Or does anyone know if someone already started working on this somewhere ?

    Someone obviously doesn't realize that the only 100% open source driver firmware (to my knowledge) is OpenWRT. At least when it comes to any Broadcom SoC-based device.
     
  52. bjlockie

    bjlockie Network Guru Member

    Do you know what linux kernel that router uses?
    I think newer routers use a more recent linux kernel that integrates TrendMicro AV and since that has to be stripped out and no one has been able to do that, support for newer routers is unlikely.

    Hey gentlemen.

    I'm currently trying to install Fresh Tomato on my Linksys EA6400. I've read a bunch of guides, none of which appear helpful. I've rolled back my stock Linksys firmware and tried to install the most recent FreshTomato (2018.3 AIO for EA6400). After the firmware was loaded I waited ~15 min and the 192.168.1.1 screen still had the Linksys logo and said "waiting". I thought by that time it was time to reboot so I powered down the router waited about 10 seconds and brought it back up again. 192.168.1.1 screen didn't show. I did a "ping -t" to the web GUI ip and got a general error. Fearing I'd bricked it I held the reset button down for 30 sec. My ping general error went to pings with 100TTL to 64TTL. Once the 64TTL was on the screen I could reconnect to the Linksys web GUI on the rolled back firmware.

    I just did a clean install of freshtomato on all of my Asus RT-N18U APs.
    Everything works fine except for all the services that have to resolve a hostname (vpn, timeserver, etc.).

    EDIT:
    Found this...

    Is this still the current workaround?

    EDIT 2:
    I got the DNS query working with this. However still no internet for the AP!
    WAN is disabled, Gateway and DNS set to my main router/modem.

    Does the AP supply internet to the wireless clients connected to it ?
     
  60. TheHellSite

    TheHellSite New Member Member

    Sure it does, but since I am also running OpenVPN Client, Adblock, Mediaserver etc. on it, I need internet on the AP.
    And since there is no internet on the AP, as soon as I define one of the APs as the gateway for one of my clients, that client as well has no internet anymore. (Pretty annoying if you want adblock on your smart tv)

    Everything is configured as it was on shibby's build and or the advanced tomato version.
     
  61. Yim Sonny

    Yim Sonny Serious Server Member

    It will not function as a gateway when configured as an access point ( WAN Disabled ). For the radio to provide routing functionality you will need to enable the WAN port. You can connect the WAN port the the LAN of the main router with a cable and set the wireless mode for AP, or use the radio in "Wireless Client" mode which would provide the routing you need, but you would then need yet another radio in AP mode to re-broadcast that service wirelessly to your clients. What you have now is a fuster cluck that will not work the way you are thinking it should.

    That is not true. As I said before, using shibby's build I had the exact same setup and everything was working fine! My main router handles the DHCP. All my APs are only used to extend the wifi, run a "VPN(AP1), Media(AP2) and Adblock Server (AP3)". But only the client's with a manual IP configuration use these "special services". For example my Smart TV and Fire TV are configured to route their traffic through AP3 so I don't see any ads on them. I could explain my whole network setup to you. But this has nothing to do with the fact that something is broken on this firmware.
    The Router should at least be able to establish a vpn connection and update it's system time, which it doesn't!
    Even after setting the system time manually the router can't get a vpn connection.

    See if this work-around from the FreshTomato-MIPS thread helps. I have been using the Init script (as well as variations of it in the past) on my ARM and MIPS routers successfully.

    Edit: Just in case it's not clear, you would create the Init script for each of your APs. Leave your main router alone.

    Well Not really. If you are not using it as a "WIFI" router, but use it as a "Ethernet" router, it is pretty powerful.
    Run old wl-520 on a 80+ PCs network. The CPU n RAM load are very low. I Believe it can handle 200+ ethernet clients easily.

    The weak part is the "wireless" chip, the wifi in "home level router" can not handle too many connections. But it can be easily fixed by a Ubiquiti Ap which can handle 1000+ wireless connections.

    I mean, the devices are getting more powerful everyday. The new routers are more powerful than my 1st computers back in days. Lock the client number to 65 in router system is just making no sense.
     
  65. TheHellSite

    TheHellSite New Member Member

    Thanks, but I already have this in my init script. The only thing that this does though is fixing dns resolution. Somehow the gateway is still messed up I think.
    Before running the script, pinging google.com doesn't work (logs say: can resolve host.....), after running the script ping works. But still no time service updates and or internet on the clients when having one of the APs set as gateway.

    Hi guys, i have a quick question. I have a couple of R7000 with freshtomato and I need to extend the wifi. Do you recommend to use a third R7000 or buy an AP like the EX7000 or EX8000. Any other AP you recommend (only desktop mount)??
    Thanks!

    TheHellSite, are you sure gateway address is correctly configured on AP (I mean, gateway_address = ip of the main router)? And mask too...

    If everything is correctly configured, all internet services will be available on AP, time service too. Check your gateway (and other routes) with
    Code:
    netstat -r

    Yes it is and it is not like I don't know what I am doing.
    This is from AP1, the other 2 look just the same except they don't have a 2nd bridge.
    "br1" is dedicated to the VPN WiFi and "speedport.ip - 192.168.2.1" is my main router.

    Code:
    Kernel IP routing table
    Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags   MSS Window  irtt Iface
    192.168.2.0     *               255.255.255.0   U         0 0          0 br0
    192.168.0.0     *               255.255.255.0   U         0 0          0 br1
    127.0.0.0       *               255.0.0.0       U         0 0          0 lo
    default         speedport.ip    0.0.0.0         UG        0 0          0 br0

    ASUS N18U, FreshTomato 2018.3.

    Error formatting JFFS (this is only line from syslog):

    JFFS is working fine on my N18U. You should consider a clean flash of the firmware and make sure to tick "After flashing, erase all data in NVRAM memory". Also don't import your old settings and start from scratch.

    Exactly. I flash FreshTomato over Shibby, do full NVRAM erase and configure from scratch.

    I do have some routers installed with "Tomato by Shibby."
    I'd like to switch to this "FreshTomato-ARM".

    Could you give some hints about migration.
    Will the simple upload/upgrade process in "Tomato by Shibby" will work to upgrade to "FreshTomato-ARM" ?

    Thanks

    It might work but a fresh install is strongly recommended. Make sure you have a backup of all your settings.

    dgedgedge New Member Member

    What do you mean by a fresh install ?

    The process I do imagine is :
    1. upload appropriate image from "FreshTomato-ARM" on my host PC
    2. Save config to file.
    3. Go to my Tomato "Admin->Upgrade"
      1. Choose file. (from my host PC).
      2. Choose "After flashing erase all data in NVRAM memory"
    4. Wait until reboot.
    5. Go to web default IP setting + Default admin password
    6. Reload configuration from file.
    7. For ASUS user (my case)
      1. If the previous process does not work properly use the "rescue mode" with ASUS Software.

    Is this correct or did I miss something ?
    Note : I do know that I ask a very basic question.
    Because I do not know what is loaded when upgrading. Is it the complete disk image, or only files ? ...
    In fact I am trying to avoid to brick my rooter because I didn't know the right process.... :)
    If I brick the router because other aspect then that's life...​

    Thanks in advance for any answer.

    I meant upgrade with erase (nvram) and manually put in your old settings. Sorry I wasn't more clear. I have been working on some Android phones recently and that's the reason for the fresh install part lol. You can import your old settings but it's not recommend. Just make sure you choose the right file for your specific router and you will be fine.

    Hi

    What kind of command Can I use in the "scheduler menu" to check connectivity and restart tinc VPN ?
    Something like :

    ping 8.8.8.8 /// yes, so nothing
    ping 8.8.8.8 /// no, so "service restart tinc"

    :d thk

    I'm wondering where can I set the "minimum transmission rate"

    Is it the "basic rate" or the "transmission rate" in the advanced wireless menu?

    If it's the basic rate, it seems like I can't disable the legacy transmission rates.

    Also, i'm wondering if it's possible to implement band-steering. I've recently upgraded part of my network to unifi and the options and tweaks available is almost night and day.

    1) Why do you post here in this thread?
    2) Why don't you check the Tinc related thread http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.php?threads/tinc-mesh-vpn.70257/?
    3) This time only: read this http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.php?threads/tinc-mesh-vpn.70257/page-3#post-281490
    4) do NOT replay here use the right thread instead. Thanks

    Because I use this frimware ! And I ask for tinc service but I try to use the same command for "dhcp renew". I use the tinc threads for problem with tinc only. So yes I can post my question over there... sorry.

    Thank you for your anser I will try it :
    Code:
    ifconfig | grep tinc >/dev/null || /sbin/service tinc restart

    Just sharing my experience.
    My R8000 installed with FreshTomato from Adv.Tomato GUI without a problem.
    I cleared nvram prior to set network configuration.
    It's been running stable for 5 days.

    Hello, I have problem with my linksys ea6400... I am not able to set 80mhz on 5ghz wifi

    is there any solution?

    Verify under Advanced->Wireless that the region selected is one that allows for 80mhz channels. If so, try manually selecting a channel instead of using "auto" and see if anything changes.

    So I am still unable to get any internet connection on my RT-N18U running FreshTomato.
    It doesn't even get internet if I connect the cable from my main router into the wan port and set a static IP.

    The is clearly something broken with the firmware for this device.

    #a is a special country setting which removes almost all country regulatory restrictions. i think it is used only for testing purposes. there are more special country codes which are not properly documented: in a command shell issue "wl country list" to view them all.

    IMHO, #a should not be the default region setting. If I recall correctly, for #a to actually work, the CFE must be modified to match. Regardless though, a test mode wildcard option in the driver as a default setting is bad practice. If, in fact, this is the case.

    #a is a "special" debug region that should not be used in production.
