    How can I manually set the time in my WRT54GL running tomato firmware?

    You could telnet into it and use the "date" command:

    BusyBox v1.2.2 (2007.03.18-15:05+0000) multi-call binary
    Usage: date [OPTION]... [MMDDhhmm[[CC]YY][.ss]] [+FORMAT]
    Displays the current time in the given FORMAT, or sets the system date.
            -R              Outputs RFC-822 compliant date string
            -d STRING       Displays time described by STRING, not `now'
            -I[TIMESPEC]    Outputs an ISO-8601 compliant date/time string
                            TIMESPEC=`date' (or missing) for date only,
                            `hours', `minutes', or `seconds' for date and,
                            time to the indicated precision
            -D hint         Use 'hint' as date format, via strptime()
            -s              Sets time described by STRING
            -r FILE         Displays the last modification time of FILE
            -u              Prints or sets Coordinated Universal Time

    Ok great thanks for that

    I changed date in telnet but under // basic>time it still says that the router time is unavailable???

    I find that the default servers listed on the Time page of Tomato don't work properly. I changed them and now tomato gets the proper time once an hour :)
