    Good news for WRT320N (E2000) users with Tomato ND Mod - kernel 2.6

    Hello from France,

    I finally managed to make my WRT320N compatible with Tomato !

    - based on the (very good) work of teddy_bear : <build 45 of Tomato USB mod beta11 - Kernel 2.6.>

    - All is not tested thoroughly .. but I am very happy to see "tomato" on my WRT320N!

    . The download link is here: Tomato v1.27.9044 MIPSR2-beta11- Kernel 2.6 for WRT320N (spécial build)
    ( MD5Sum.: daf8ab5a1ef3769cf1ae7d5f374d497a )

    . UPDATE : New builds of teddy bear, now compatible with the WRT320N : http://tomatousb.org/changelog


    *************************************************************
    DUAL BAND for WRT320N and E2000(*) : 2.4GHz and 5 GHz
    *************************************************************
    (*) E2000 : see instructions below

    You can try a beta implementation :

    . The download link is here: Tomato v1.27.9047 MIPSR2-beta16- Kernel 2.6 for WRT320N (spécial build)
    ( MD5Sum.: f4a0c07babb53d8840ac2096510232db )

    ***************************************************
    - Linksys E2000 Router - with TomatoUSB
    ***************************************************
    .WRT320N = E2000 (WRT610Nv2 = E3000)
    WRTxxxx model and Exxxx new model have the same hardware under the hood (same processor, same switch, very similar PCB --> reset gpio solved).
    Only difference is that the new ones have a different CFE that allocates a larger space for nvram (most likely for the Cisco Connect software settings).
    No reason for you to get larger space of nvram not used by Tomato ! :).. then, you can use this method :

    1. The first time, before using Tomato, you must flash your router with a modified version of the Cisco firmware (CFE of 32K) : HERE
    2. Then you need to load a DD-WRT mini for the WRT320N (dd-wrt.v24-1xxxx_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini_wrt320n) for ex. HERE
    3. Then you should be able to directly load any Tomato-K26-MIPSR2-NoUSB Std , (standards or specials mod builds > 46): HERE or HERE
      (don't forget to reset the router and nvram , just after each flash)




    For flashing the WRT320N, you must follow theses instructions:
    First flash : you need to load the DD-WRT mini for the WRT320N (dd-wrt.v24-1xxxx_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini_wrt320n). Then you should be able to directly load the Tomato beta (tomato-K26-1.27.9045MIPSR2-WRT320N-beta11-Std.bin). (don't forget to reset the router and nvram , just after each flash)

    Warning: this is an experimental firmware and can brick your router. it's difficult to debrick this router for a novice, and you must use a serial console for unbrick.


    great thank's to teddy bear !

    I wonder if this would also work on the new Cisco E2000, which from my understanding is identical to the WRT320N, just repackaged. Or any other of the new Cisco models for that matter...

    Some info on the new and old model hardware here at SmallNetBuilder
     
  6. dbt78

    dbt78 Networkin' Nut Member

    right,
    It as not exactly the same board indice, and with the WRT320 firmware, it will not work . I'll try to find technicals elements for this router. :smile:

  8. i1135t

    i1135t Network Guru Member

    Wow, cool.. quick question. Will this work on the slightly lower model, the WRT310N, the non-dual band? Do they have the same hardware/chipset? If so, is it possible to build the VPN option from SgtPepper into your build for my testing purposes? Also, what is the md5sum of the file?
     
  9. dbt78

    dbt78 Networkin' Nut Member

    hi i1135t,
    There are two versions of the WRT310N :
    1.0 -> Broadcom 4785
    2.0 -> Broadcom 4716

    Probably the V2 could be implemented in tomato, but be careful .. ,
    Possess knowledge of this router is necessary, not my case... and I'm sorry!.

    MD5 : sorry, I just add ..
    VPN : when WRT320N will be included in the next images in the distribution of Teddy Bear.
     
  10. dbt78

    dbt78 Networkin' Nut Member

    good! :)

    I just checked any infos on this router, the difference is only the "Boardrev"
    .. but I have not tested it in the init sequence of the firmware.

    .. So your E2000 router should work and be recognized as a WRT320N,
    with my firmware. If you have the tools to unbrick this router, you can test it (at your own risk). A feedback will be welcome ! :)

    occamsrazor Network Guru Member

    Sorry I don't actually have one of these myself, I was just curious as to whether it was likely to run on it. Anything that increases the number of models Tomato can run on is a good thing. Good luck on your work :)

    It will probably NOT work with the new Cisco router E2000. DD-WRT developers are currently making changes to code to run the new Cisco "E" routers with DD-WRT.

    However they have found some differences between the new Cisco routers and their old counterparts.

    The wireless led doesn't blink when in use or turn off when disabled.
    Apart from that all is running great.

    Just done a 30-30-30 hard reset and that's fixed it :) I guess the one in tomato doesn't clear everything out.

    Sorry for the trouble and thanks again for getting this awesome firmware on the WRT320N :cool:

    Does dual band radio work with 320n?
    I'm between wrt160nl (dd-wrt only) and wrt320n. I want to choose 320n for tomato builds. But tomato without usb will be kind of useless, don't you think?
     
  21. dbt78

    dbt78 Networkin' Nut Member

    hi

    The WRT320N has gigabit ports .. but has no USB .. WRT160NL has USB but not gigabit ports ..
    For me, WRT320N associated with a gigabit NAS, the USB is not important.
    I have multimedia features directly from the NAS. (Buffalo with linux firmware).
    Tomato works well on it. Wifi only works in either the 2.4GHz band or the 5GHz band at once.

    "Tomato USB K2.6" of Teddy_Bear being done for the Asus RT-N16 Original ( 2.4 ~ 2.5 Ghz only no 5Ghz band ) and
    currently there is no option for dual band routers as WRT320N to switch 2.4 GHz - 5Ghz in tomato. (I think it can be added latter..)
     
  22. dbt78

    dbt78 Networkin' Nut Member

    Right,
    I put on the first post, a (very) beta build to enable the Dual-Band on the WRT320N.

    Do you know Tomato supports wrt350N v2 with marvell chipset?
     
  24. dbt78

    I don't think so. kernel and programs are configured for Broadcom chips.

    So I just downloaded Kernel 2.6 (experimental) for MIPSR2 Build 50 NoUSB Std, I have a wrt320n from what I have read to install this build;
    "First flash : you need to load the DD-WRT mini for the WRT320N (dd-wrt.v24-1xxxx_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini_wrt320n). Then you should be able to directly load the Tomato beta tomato-K26-1.28.9050MIPSR2-beta20-Std.trx"
    I just want to double check before I do it.

    Thanks

    yes it is.
     
  29. Toink

    Thank you dbt78 and Toink, I feel better, I am already running in on WL500w and I have just went back to linksys stock firmware on my wrt320n. I think I am going to attempt to upgrade wrt320n..
    Thanks both

    Did you just miss a couple of posts up your own post? :rolleyes: You dont need to flash your WRT320N with DD-WRT mini to load THIS Tomato firmware.... You can load the Tomato firmware straight from the Linksys OEM firmware.... I've been doing this process more than a couple of dozen times without issues.....
     
  33. Uzerk

    Uzerk Networkin' Nut Member

    Nope, I didn't miss it. I just haven't seen anyone else say that it works :biggrin:
    Well, guess I'll try that with the new router once i get it.
     
  34. krum09

    krum09 Networkin' Nut Member

    You can load the Tomato firmware straight from the Linksys firmware.. I did,
    I was running dd-WRT went back to linksys set defaults, Then From linksys Firmware I went to Tomato it worked, (you have rename the xxx.trx to xxx.bin) advantages Didn't have to log in Telnet and get dd-wrt password..
     
  35. Uzerk

    Uzerk Networkin' Nut Member

    Nice, sound good.
    Why do I have to rename the firmware file, doesn't Linksys firmware support *.trx or what?
     
  36. krum09

    krum09 Networkin' Nut Member

    Linksys will not the the TRX dont know why, but rename to BIN
    Oh dont panic when you get to 97% from 97%-100% it so long seemed to take forever, :biggrin:

    Hi Uzerk,

    These files are the ones I use.

    Sometimes he has bad flash , but :
    after a flash, whatever the method, it is very important to do not reset the router too soon, and let the software initialize the data in the NVram.
     
  38. bripab007

    bripab007 Network Guru Member

    Whenever you flash a new FW, especially when going from, say, DD-WRT to Tomato, you should be doing a full NVRAM erase both before you begin the flash and after the flash is completed, anyway.

    This would have alleviated your having to telnet in to get the DD-WRT password with the added benefit of having no chance of introducing strange, phantom problems with your Tomato build down the road.
     
  39. Uzerk

    Uzerk Networkin' Nut Member

    So when i get the router, i'll erase the nvram before i flash it to tomato.
    And when it's done, i'll what let it run a few minutes before a erase the nvram again?
     
  40. dbt78

    dbt78 Networkin' Nut Member

    yes , you set to default before the flash.
    wait 3-5 minutes until the web page reported that the web-flash was successful. Wait another 3-5 minutes in case the firmware is rebooting and initializing the NVRAM or whatever (just wait to be sure that the flash is completely finished with its processing).

    Hello,

    Well I use the last tomato usb firmware for my WRT320N (NoUSB VPN).
    But I would try to use PPTP and this doesn't work. DD-WRT works fine but not Tomato.
    Is there something missing?

    Regards
     
  42. dbt78

    dbt78 Networkin' Nut Member

    Yes, I have noticed incompatibilities with some public VPN with TomatoUsb.
    PPPT and OpenVPN. (Eg http://bb.s6n.org/viewtopic.php?id=81)
    especially with DD-WRT all works with the same config...

    I strongly suspect the implementation of OpenSSL. (Cipher = AES256-CBC). I'll try to implement a superior library, and I will keep you informed.

    What is your VPN Provider ?

    EDIT 1 : I've implemented the last library Openssl 1-0-0a and Openvpn 2-2 beta3 --> solved all my problems ! : http://www.linksysinfo.org/forums/showpost.php?p=368896&postcount=2467
     
  43. kasimodo

    kasimodo LI Guru Member

    I use VyprVPN from Giganews.

    I just spoke with Teddy_b (the man who has "developped" TomatoUSB) and he told me that PPTP encryption is not built-in into TomatoUSB. And this MPPE is necessary for VyprVPN.
    He recommended me to use Extra package but i don't know how to do... Perhaps you know?

    E3000

    Hi Guys, I have tomato-K26USB-1.28.9051MIPSR2-beta22-Ext running on a Cisco E3000 just not 100% sure if this is the correct firmware to run. I can't get the dual bands to run, so I'm assuming not.

    BIG Thank you to teddybear for doing this, dd-wrt was VERY unstable on this router.

    Fingers crossed we have a wireless-n replacement for the WRT54GL!
     
  47. dbt78

    dbt78 Networkin' Nut Member

    - Yes, Teddy Bear has provided for the recognition of this router in the initialization. :)
    - Dual Band must be implemented, but only one choice: 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz
    With E3000 it's the same thing than E2000 : CFE (by cisco) allocates a larger space for nvram. --> It would normally compile a customized version ..
     
  48. teddy_bear

    teddy_bear Network Guru Member

    On WRT610N/E3000 the dual band is not implemented yet. These models have 2 radios - one works on 2.4 GHz, the other one - on 5GHz. These radios can't switch bands.

    Tomato currently only supports the 1st radio, which is 2.4 GHz.

    WRT320N/E2000 models have a single radio that can work on both bands - this is fully supported now.

    Support for simultaneous dual-band (2 physical wireless interfaces) is WIP - coming soon ;)...

    occamsrazor Network Guru Member

    Interesting, very interesting... Have to say at the moment I'm looking to upgrade my WL-500GPv2, and really want to have 300Mbps N wireless (40Mhz channels), preferably dual-band. I'm torn between just adding a dual-band N access point to my WL-500GPv2, and still using that for the B/G clients..... or waiting until there's a tomato router that can support simultaneous dual-band.
    You say it's a WIP.... can you give any advice on what models are most likely to see it first, and generally what you would buy now (RT-N16, WRT320N, E3000, etc) if wireless speed was important and bearing in mind likely future Tomato support? Thanks....

    Hi! (New user here)

    I just bought a WRT320N and I want to install Tomato-firmware on it.

    But I dont know really how to do it. So if someone could answer a few questions for me?

    1. Do i need to update my Linksys-firmware to DD-WRT mini First? Then upgrade from DD-WRT to tomato?

    2. Toink said "Or you can go back to the Linksys original firmware and upload the Tomato firmware from there. Which works for me". Anyone else tested it? And does it work?

    3. If you could give me the correct link for DD-WRT mini and tomato. (Or just the tomato if Question 2. is working)

    4. don't forget to reset the router and nvram , just after each flash. I know how to reset the router, but the nvram? how do i do that?

    best regards from Sweden :)

    kasimodo LI Guru Member

    Hello,

    I have a WRT320N so I can reply to you (Sorry for my very bad english, I'm french)
    So...

    Yes you have to flash with DD-WRT mini then to Tomato USB. Perhaps it works flashing directly to Tomato USB but I didn't test so...

    Link to DD-WRT Mini for your WRT320N:
    http://www.dd-wrt.com/routerdb/de/download/Linksys/WRT320N/v1/dd-wrt.v24-14896_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini.bin/3758

    Link to Tomato-USB for your WRT320N:
    3 choices, depends on what you want:
    1. NoUSB Standard => http://sourceforge.net/projects/tomatousb/files/Experimental%20%28beta%29/K26-MIPSR2/tomato-K26-1.28.9052MIPSR2-beta23-Std.rar/download
    2. NoUSB VPN (what I've installed for mine)=> http://sourceforge.net/projects/tomatousb/files/Experimental%20%28beta%29/K26-MIPSR2/tomato-K26-1.28.9052MIPSR2-beta23-vpn3.6.rar/download
    3. NoUSB Mini => http://sourceforge.net/projects/tomatousb/files/Experimental%20%28beta%29/K26-MIPSR2/tomato-K26-1.28.9052MIPSR2-beta23-Mini.rar/download

    So to resume, it's important to choose a NoUSB firmware with Kernel 2.6 and MIPSR2. You can find the compatibility table for supported routers here:
    http://tomatousb.org/doc:build-types

    To make a reset for settings and NVRam, just do a 30/30/30.
    Here the procedure:
    * With the unit powered on, press and hold the reset button on back of unit for 30 seconds
    * Without releasing the reset button, unplug the unit and hold reset for another 30 seconds
    * Plug the unit back in STILL holding the reset button a final 30 seconds

    This procedure should be done BEFORE and AFTER every firmware upgrade/downgrade.

    Regards (from Paris)

    Before I turn my friend's new E2000 into a nice looking paperweight, let me just confirm a few things here:

    - The modified version of the Cisco firmware changes the CFE from 60K to 32K, so that no special builds of DD-WRT or Tomato are required thereafter, correct?

    - The recommended method of getting to Tomato on the E2000 would be the following steps:

    1 - 30-30-30 reset on current firmware
    2 - Load modified Cisco firmware, let the router sit for a few minutes
    3 - 30-30-30 reset
    4 - Load the DD-WRT mini build, let the router sit for a few minutes
    5 - 30-30-30 reset
    6 - Load Tomato K26 MIPSR2 No-USB Std, let the router sit for a few minutes
    7 - 30-30-30 reset
    8 - Configure Tomato as normal

    Correct?

    - Also, once Tomato is loaded on the router, future upgrades can be done directly using the latest K26 MIPSR2 No-USB Std builds, correct?
     
  53. dbt78

    dbt78 Networkin' Nut Member

    Yes, you do like that.
    Note: Teddy_bear (which is always makes a good job..) has added an option in its TomatoUsb to directly compile a version for e2000 / 60K CFE. For now, you must compile it yourself.
     
  54. dmb41crash

    dmb41crash Networkin' Nut Member

    Thank you dbt78. I would much rather use a 60K CFE version of TeddyBear's latest build, rather than modify the CFE. Unfortunately I'm completely clueless how to compile my own build. I wonder if anyone has already complied a 60K CFE K26 1.28.9052 MIPSR2 NoUSB Std build, or might be able to.

    Any idea when a 60K CFE version of TeddyBear's firmware for the E2000 might be made available for download? I've read a few rumors of there being an "official" 60K release, but haven't seen anything thus far.

    Just got myself a WRT320N recently so I want to ask to make sure if the only 3 versions of Tomato I can load are

    1. NoUSB Std
    2. NoUSB VPN
    3. NoUSB Mini
     
  58. kasimodo

    kasimodo LI Guru Member

    Correct. These 3 firmwares are ok with you WRT320N (but don't forget to get the MIPSR2)
     
  59. Roy2001

    Roy2001 Networkin' Nut Member

    I got a refurbished 320N, flash it to tomato directly without any issue. Now I am thinking if I need to flash it to E2000. But I don't see any benefit as Tomato and DD-WRT support it.
     
  60. Roy2001

    Roy2001 Networkin' Nut Member

    Is it that simple to flash it to E2000? From what I read, you need to edit the cfe file with MAC & serial.
     
  61. phuque99

    phuque99 LI Guru Member

    That was initially before special builds were compiled to handle the larger NVRAM in the E2000/E3000 series. Today you can download the special E2000 builds from http://tomatousb.org and flash directly on Linksys' stock firmware.

    Flash Tomato USB directly from Linksys stock firmware?

    Hi Looking to install Tomato USB on to my linksys E2000. Is it true that you can flash Tomato E2000 Std firmware directly from Linksys stock firmware?

    Thanks,

    tbjerret Network Guru Member

    Just to clarify:
    Reading above it seems like you can flash a WRT320N directly with a E2000 build without changes to the CFE.

    Can that be right?

    I installed the latest build, tomato-E2000-1.28.9054MIPSR2-beta-Std (special built) on my Linksys E2000. I am able to enter and save changes in the configuration settings, but all changes keep getting lost after a reboot or restart. All settings are reset to defaults. I have reset the router after flashing with a 30-sec push on the reset button, and a soft reset with the "erase all data in the NVRAM" in the configuration tab, all to no avail. I suspect this has something to do the 62kb nvram space in the E2000? I am a newbie on this firmware, need help desperately. Thanks.

    I received a refurbished E2000, updated directly from stock firmware to tomato-E2000-1.28.9054MIPSR2-beta-vpn3.6.bin. Have been using it for a few hours and everything I tried worked.

    To nulland,
    I think if you followed the first page and flashed the E2000 with the 32K CFE, then you cannot use the Tomato-E2000 build because the E2000 build would expect the original E2000 60K CFE.
    If indeed this is what happened, then
    1. you have to find something to return the E2000 to 60K CFE and then use the Tomato-E2000 build. Or,
    2. you leave the E2000 with the 32K CFE mod and use the normal build (e.g tomato-K26-1.28.9054MIPSR2-beta-Std).

    Thanks for the reply. I did not follow the first page. I flashed directly from stock firmware which has a 62k nvram space. Besides, the E2000's CFE is always 256k and I do not think it's size will change when a new firmware is flashed. It's only the nvram space that is changed when the "32k CFE" (modified Cisco firmware) is flashed on the router. Anyway, I have flashed the router back to the stock Linksys E2000 firmware and it still works well, so I suppose it's back to its 62k nvram space? But I really would want the TomatoUSB on my router, and I'd prefer the special-built E2000 on it.

    BTW, when I had the Tomato firmware on the E2000, I executed the command "nvram show" on the window and it displayed the nvram values. At the end of the list was this summary: "695 entries, 12135 bytes used, 49305 bytes free". This shows that nvram space is 62K (12135 + 49305), not 32k.

    I followed the procedure over on the dd-wrt forums to load the E2000 CFE onto my new WRT320N. This worked out fine for me and now the router is now detected as an E2000. Of course anyone trying this is at their own risk since the slightest mis-step can brick your router.

    Having said that, after the process I was running dd-wrt and flashed back to tomato using tomato-E2000-1.28.9054MIPSR2-beta-Std and everything seems to be working fine including the larger NVRAM space, 61440 bytes by my math adding the used and available space.

    Wish I had that space on my RT-N16 which is running pretty tight on available space, although this has not yet actually caused any problems for me.

    This NVRAM issue is becoming an even bigger problem now we have the RT-N16 etc and people are adding ipv6, servers, Torrent clients, and other applications that use NVRAM too. I was also running out of NVRAM space due to having a large number of clients, less than 1k left. I did not really want to do an NVRAM erase and reconfigure, because I had hundreds of entries in Static DHCP and Access restrictions. It takes around 3 hours to enter and check by hand I had to do something, though, so I bit the bullet. I used the easy method shown here:

    http://www.linksysinfo.org/forums/showpost.php?p=362345&postcount=221

    After NVRAM erase and reconfig by hand of the ISP connection and other setup, which takes a minute or two, I added my Static DHCP and Restrictions details by cut and past from the file I had saved. That took even less time! In less than 5 minutes I was back up and running. The interesting thing is I had now regained 10K of NVRAM. There were just so many redundant entries, and stuff left behind from previous things I had tried but abandoned.

    I hope this tip might be useful to others.

    I did the same thing, flashed it to a tru E2000 and then I tried stock firmware, DD-WRT and now with Tomato for E2000. It seems working fine.

    I recently received an E2000 router and am having issues getting tomato firmware on it.

    Basically, whenever I upload any of the two versions of tomato (std or vpn) the router upgrade runs to about 90% and then ends in a big failure message. But, that's not all. I didn't think of it much until the tomato upload failed again but in the stock linksys screen, in the top right corner, I'm seeing an entirely different model number there. "WRT320N" is written in the top right, not "E2000." Let me state, again, I definitely bought an E2000. The model number on the bottom of the router? "E2000."

    So, what might be my options in this case? (While I can send the router back for a replacement, I'd like to know if I might not need to do so.)

    Thanks for any help.

    Download tomato-K26-1.28.9054MIPSR2-beta-Std.rar and extract it.

    Rename tomato-K26-1.28.9054MIPSR2-beta-Std.trx to tomato-K26-1.28.9054MIPSR2-beta-Std.trx.bin and flash it to your E2000/WRT320N.

    If that doesn't work then you can try flashing DD-WRT then tomato after.

    The E2000 has 60K NVRAM. So it needs a special version to make use of it. There was an early attempt to detect this automatically and amend the flash but it was reverted later due to instabi;lity.

    Follow the link below, look for builds with E2000 in the title.

    Sorry if this has been asked already. I have my WRT320N flashed to the mega build (DD-WRT v24-sp2 (08/07/10) mega).

    Do I need to do anything special to get TomatoUSB on it?
    Do I need to go back to the stock firmware?
    Do I need to go back to DD-WRT mini?
    Will TomatoUSB let me use dual band N? (doubting this one as I think it has a single radio)

    Thanks!

    Hello Guys,

    I already have "DD-WRT v24-sp2 (03/10/11) big" running on my WRT320N. Do I still need to do other flashes or can I just flash to latest TomatoVPN?

    If I do need to perform other flashes, which are they?

    Thanks for the help!

    Or will it still be 2.4 or 5GHz option

    Nope, it's a non-simultaneous dual band router. The E2500 and E3000 are simultaneous.

    Hi everyone

    I have been face to a brick situation with this beta16 firmware, when I have used 2 wrt320n in bridge mode. In order to solve it, NEVER configurate the 2nd router in WDS but in AP+WDS, because after a reboot or power down, you will brick it.

    Hi everyone! When I flash my router with a modified version of the Cisco firmware (CFE of 32K) at http://192.168.1.1/ it asks username and password and I've tried everything but could not. Does anyone know what username and password please just let me know thanks!

    First, try to reset by pressing "Reset button" during 30 sec.
    Then try this login/password:
    root/root
    root/admin
    admin/admin
    admin/root

    (You have to reset FIRST!)

    Hey Maxit0, I also have a 320n. Did you have to install dd-wrt first?

    Has anybody installed some of the tomatoUSB branches (Toastman, shibby, etc) on a 320N? I'd like to try, but am a bit intimidated.

    [edit:I'm getting different forums mixed up a little. Sorry]. Do you know if I can flash straight to it from a stock firmware?
    The other thing I found that confuses me a little is that on Victek's page for wrt-320n it says 4MB flash only, but all the specs say the 320N has 8MB.
