    what do you think about this router compared to n16 and E4200?
     
  3. shibby20

    shibby20 Network Guru Member

    In Polish RT-N16 costs 375zł. Netgear - 249zł. Well netgear is 1/3 cheaper.

    what about the performance and features which is better?

    My Asus RT-N16 has this chipset: Broadcom BCM4716 rev1 pkg10 (480MHz)
    This Netgear 3500L V2 using the following: BCM5357 (480MHz)

    -Are there any noticable speed difference between the two chipset?
    -How fast is the Samba file share speed? (my RT-N16 7-7,5mbyte/sec with shibby 076V / 6-6.5mbyte/sec with 083V)

    -What does this 128MB flash means? Can I format my JFFS2 to approx 120MB with a 8MB firmware?

    -Where can I downloadyour firmware? :) I will buy a Netgear 3500L to a friend in two days, I'll be interested whether I will get this new upgraded version?

    Shibby,

    Is the signal quality better on the version 2? I had three of the version 1's and the signal quality was very poor. They usually registered half of what other routers placed in the same area would register.

    Strange.

    The 3500l has three intergrated antenna, but the 3500lv2 only has 2 by the picture. While they are not 'fixed' they are not easily modififable.

    I wonder how that will effect performance.
     
  8. shibby20

    shibby20 Network Guru Member

    @Mercjoe - v1 has 3 antennas but radio 2T2R. Two antennas was bridged! 3rd antenna wan only for better performance. In v2 we have "external" build-in antennas, well i think performance should be good.

    Update.

    USB WORKS now on tomato :)

    No. Both have the same performance. On v2 i have read from FTP 8,2MB/s, write 5,5MB/s. On v1 i have 7,9MB/s read, 5.5MB/s write. Asus have very similar results.


    Router has 128MB nand flash but driver create 16 partition in nand flash, well partition linux (software + jffs) has only 32MB and this is for users.


    Link added higher. WAN PPPoE works, USB works, LEDs and top button works. Router is fully supported.

    No info on this? Can you obtain a -40 dBm rssi or better with this unit on any given client?

    Thanks very much for your detailed answer Shibby, and also thanks for the downloadable firmware. :)

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    You have to specify at what distance and with what client, otherwise this question is meaningless. The only valid test would be a direct comparison between the two with identical firmware.

    Now that was what I call FAST :D
     
  16. LanceMoreland

    LanceMoreland Network Guru Member

    It really doesn't matter what distance, as compared to other hardware the received signal quality from any client was significantly less as shown on the device list in Tomato. In fact a -40 dBm rssi number was impossible to get no matter how close you got to the router with any firmware. This was consistent on three separate units and I am not talking about small insignificant differences in signal quality, these are major differences. I know my question was broad and I mean no disrespect in my response to you (Hell, I am your bigest fan and run your builds), I just thought the signal quality issue was widely known about.

    Thanks Shibby but what I am really asking about is the received signal quality. My 3500 V1's allways output sufficient signal but the received signal was always poor. Here is an example. I kept notes on signal quality from 4 devices using my 3500L and monitored for a week and averaged was as follows:

    DSL-932-6 = -71 dBm, 28 signal quality
    DSL-932-7 = -78 dBm, 22 signal quality
    DSL-932-8 = -75 dBm, 24 signal quality
    DSL-932-9 = -68 dBm, 31 signal quality

    These are signal quality numbers from mounted stationary cameras, so nothing has changed except the router hardware.

    As as opposed to the screen shot of the same devices, the same distance with an E4200

    [​IMG]

    I am really hoping that the 3500L V2 has been improved in this area.
     
  17. Toastman

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    Lance, that seems impossible. Even a router with no antenna on it would exceed -40 when placed right next to the router. Try it for yourself. Besides which, I've had many thousands of downloads of firmwares for the 3500L from several different forums, 3500+ from openrouter.org alone. So has Shibby, I'm sure. Generally people are quite happy with the range, whereas yours seems to be, in a word, putrid. Nobody would EVER state they were happy if they experienced the same thing as you. You're talking of 30-40dB difference !!

    Shibby's graph shows exactly what you'd expect. He clearly can get readings in excess of -40dBm.

    Something is seriously wrong there. I haven't a clue what it might be, though.
     
  18. LanceMoreland

    LanceMoreland Network Guru Member

    Again, Shibby's graph shows the output signal which corresponds nicely with my results with the 3500L V1's.

    It is the received signal quality that is the issue.

    kthaddock Network Guru Member

    Okey can you give us a picture of your mod? maby you have solder something on wrong place or missed something.
    If it differ 30-40db then we can expect problem.
     
  20. LanceMoreland

    LanceMoreland Network Guru Member

    No mods. All three of my units are right out of the box.
     
  21. LanceMoreland

    LanceMoreland Network Guru Member

    Okay, this will better demonstrate my point. I had the 3500L v1 sitting here so I unpluged the E4200 and took screen shots of both routers device pages and inssider shots of the output signal. Everything is from the same place and nothing has moved and both are on the appropriate Toastman builds.

    3500L V1 signals.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Now the E4200

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Both routers are set to hardware default and as you can see both output similar signal strength. It is the received signal that is drastically different. This behavior has been reported elsewhere and is consistent across all three of my 3500L V1's. I am hoping the V2's do not exhibit this weak signal reception.

    The wireless strength of my 3500v2 (no L, no U, no USB) has always been garbage as well.
    Devices barely get a tomato signal quality rating of over 20 at 5 meters distance.
    The throughput is good, however. I consistently get over 6MByte/s over CIFS from wired PC to an iMac with signal quality rating of 13-15!
    Noise Floor is -92 dBm, whereas my E2000 states -99 dBm.

    Everything NETGEAR is garbage. Worst brand hands down.
     
  24. LanceMoreland

    LanceMoreland Network Guru Member

    I am not so sure I would go that far. The Netgear units have always been dependable and the connection seems fine, it is just that the reading never matches up to the performance. I have always suspected that either the noise created by the 3500L interfered with the signal being received or Tomato was not communicating with the hardware properly and interpenetrating the incoming signal correctly. It is odd that the quality of signal is almost exactly half that of the E4200.
     
  25. Toastman

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    It could be the receiver is a bit deaf. It is, after all, an SOC chip. Unfortuantely the V2 looks even worse, if anything, so I wouldn't hold your breath. However, the RT-N16 has an SOC chip too, and that isn't at all bad. Who knows?

    Or, maybe , it looks like a display issue, if the throughput is OK. I've never actually even seen one of these 3500 routers myself. I seem to remember that Teddy Bear did have problems some time ago with displayed strengths on certain models. . He was experimenting with different wireless drivers to find one that worked reliably on all routers. I reverted driver from 10.5.142.0 to 10.5.147.0 to avoid display problems, amongst others, not long ago. Maybe there just isn't one "fit-all" solution.

    The readings themselves are nonsensical, I agree. Unless the receiver really is incredibly crap.

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    There's probably not much point, because there's nothing I can do about it anyway. But thanks for the offer! Just a thought - did you try the RT-N branch with the different driver?
     
  28. LanceMoreland

    LanceMoreland Network Guru Member

    I did not. I used the RT branch on the 3500L's, but might be worth a shot. I still don't know if it is a display issue or a real signal issue, sure would like to find out though.

    Shibby / Toastman,

    I just setup Tomato on a relatives Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 and found something that may help the receive signal on these Netgear units. I am not sure if it is compatible but for that model there is a setting for "Enhanced RX Sensitivity". Toggling that setting made a significant improvement in the received signal quality on the Buffalo. Is there a chance that the Netgear hardware is compatible with this code?
     
  30. Toastman

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    Well, the Buffalo was rather a special bit of hardware. It had extra transmit power amplifiers and preamplifiers on the front-end of the receivers. These extra flags were for enabling them. The Netgear doesn't have the same hardware. So nope, it won't do anything, I'm afraid.

    BTW - Talking about the Buffalo - since the transmitter is actually being used to drive the Buffalo's power amplifiers, to avoid overdriving them the transmit power setting should be rather lower than you'd expect. Just in case you'd noticed it was apparently rather low and tried to increase it. Can't remember the actual setting though.

    Just installed this and i have to say thank you to shibby20 for taking the time to make a fw for the v2, much appreciated.

    I dont know if this is the right thread to report bugs, but im having some problems with the router rebooting after enabling bandwidth limiter.
    It seems go into a reboot loop if i run a couple of torrents (utorrent with 4 torrents, max 100 connections each, 800 global connections, reducing this doesent help) after a hard reboot everyting is fine until i start utorrent again. I was downloading an update for a game through origin earlier and it would limit the bandwidth perfectly.
    Theres no changes to the load or memory usage before it crashes.

    Im running Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-083V K26 USB BT-VPN

    Heres a log file http://sharetext.org/C4KW

    I tried to 30-30-30 reset and clear NVRAM through the web interface. Now im stumped. Any ideas as to why it would crash?

    Hello,

    First, thank you for this Tomato release Shibby :)

    I'd like to use Wake On Wan and for this I found a tutorial that requires me to use JFFS. And this where I'm stucked.
    After enabling the JFFS setting (and saving it), I click on Format/Erase and, after more than a minute, I get a small message saying "Stopped" and JFFS partition is still "Not mounted".

    Is this something to expect with this release or am I missing something ?

    Thanks,

    Seb

    The source explains the printout messages - but that means the format is not read from the chip?
    Answering my own question re chip the Samsung flash is a 1Gb 128*8 chip K9F1G08U0D
    So there is a lot of currently unallocated space?

    I've got both the wnr3500lv1 and the v2 and a e4200v1. Shibby, any ideas why stock firmware is capable of +200 Mbit wan/lan and your build only about 130 Mbit - cpu reporting 100% in the gui while testing the throughput? If if disable SPI etc it might peak arount 133 Mbit and using XI Net Transport with 10 connections (windows dl-app) it may spike @ about 150 Mbit but average around 130 Mbit. Fast-NAT in stock firmware? All of the abvove three routers perform about the same with 1.28 k26 build5x-083V
     
  40. maurer

    maurer LI Guru Member

    yes, FAST_nat is to "blame" for high wan-lan throughput in stock OEM fw.
    wl500g.googlecode.com has almost successfully implemented fast-nat
    with the latest release from them (25.12.2011) i'm able to saturate an 100/100 mbps line with an old WL 500gP v1

    Hi!

    Think I posted on the wrong thread first - but I am also missing the JFFS.

    I am using it to store username & password, when connecting to a openVPN server.

    Ok - I AM a newbie :cool:, but i really like the tomato-Netgear-3500Lv2-K26USB-1.28.RT-N5x--083V-AIO.chk!

    Edit: Managed to get my VPN login going - teleneted in, wrote: mkdir jffs and put my login info in that folder.

    I then just added root/ in front of my jffs/ , in VPN Client custom configuration.

    Best way to do it? - I dont think so, but who can argue with success..

    Just had my Netgear WNR3500 with, V1.0.0.10_30.0.43 Downloaded tomato-Netgear-3500Lv2-K26USB-1.28.RT-N5x--083V-BT-VPN.chk and installed without any problems. BUT:

    1. I have my router as slave after my ISP's router. My ISP's router has 192.168.2.1 When I start my Netgear with Tomato it also takes 192.168.2.1
    If I close the ISP router, the Netgear goes to 192.168.1.1 But if I start the ISP router there is still a conflict?

    2. I can't login to the Netgear using root / password. I get "401 Unauthorized" Tried all other passwords I can think of and nothing is working.

    All help appreciated.

    Hello,

    i can"t mount jffs. the gui keeps telling "not mounted" after reboot and the log files says nothing about jffs except stopped

    is there an upgrade for this roouter ? i actually have Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-083V K26 USB BT-VPN

    thank you for your help

    Has there been any further progress on this alleged poor received signal quality for the 3500L? There's a deal on newegg for it right now and I don't know if I should get it or not. If this is a real issue that affects the wireless signal I definitely don't want to buy it then.

    Hi there!

    I have a WNR3500lv2 and flashed first the "tomato-Netgear-3500Lv2-K26USB-1.28.RT-N--088V-AIO" from shibby.
    It all went good flashing and after the flash I also have done a 30-30-30 reset to be sure all NVRAM stuff from the original Netgear Firmware is wiped out.
    So I configured the Router and it is doing pretty well except one major thing which is very important to me.

    I am scheduling the WiFi signal to be turned off in the night (at 1:45 am from SUNDAY to THURSDAY, 2:30am FRIDAY and SATURDAY) and on again in the morning (at 6:15 am from SUNDAY to THURSDAY, 6:30am FRIDAY and SATURDAY) automatically.

    What I recognized is that it only worked once that it enabled the WiFi again in the morning. Except that, it does not work that it enables the WiFi Signal again in the morning how I scheuled it.
    I tried to turn on the WiFi again manually over the WPS Button and also pressed the little button located on the back of the Router which is used to tunr on/off the WiFi with the NETGEAR Firmware but nothing really happens.
    I needed to turn off and on again the router completely to get my WiFi Signal.

    This als happens with the "tomato-Netgear-3500Lv2-K26USB-1.28.0497.1-Toastman-RT-N-VPN.chk" from Toastman. So the issue lies tomewhere in the Tomato main trunk.

    I am also using the option to reconnect my WAN at a specific time (3:00 am) so the forced reconnect from the provider does not occur over the day.
    I think when this option was disabled the WiFi scheduling worked flawelessly. I need to check it again. I disabled now the WAN reconnect feature and will see tomorrow if it worked with the reenabling of the WiFi regarding the schedule which I have set up.

    The LAN side of the Router is therefore working without a problem.

    I hope that shibby and Toastman are reading this.

    So to sum this up:

    -WiFI is not reenabling itself according to the WiFi Schedule at the Access Restriction Page
    -WPS and the little Button at the back of the router are not reenabling the WiFi signal when I tried to turn it on because of the mentioned WiFi Schedule "BUG"
    -And I think it reenabled flawelessly according to the Schedule when i disabled the WAN Reconnect feature at the Administration -> Scheduler Page.

    What I wanted also to ask in which firmware (from Toastman or Shibby) is the QoS feature more advanced, feature-ish, and more maintained?

    Thank you very much. I will disable now the WAN reconnect feature and see next morning If the WiFi has reenabled itself.

    SO First happy easter!! ;-)

    Today in the morning the WiFi did not reenabled itself although I disabled the WAN Reconnect Feature.
    I tried to enable the WiFi through the Web Interface (connected through LAN) but it did not work.
    It showed that the WiFi is "ENABLED" but none of my devices was capable of seeing the WiFi SSID. I then "disabled" it over the WebFrontend and again enabled it but still no WiFi for my devices!

    So the issue must lie somewhere else!


    I dumped today the syslog. Here an excerpt:

    Can someone see from the syslog where the issue is located? I do not see anything regarding the described issue. Except the lines with the modem hangup are looking in some way suspicious. But nothing regarding WiFi. :

    Code:
    Apr 8 09:15:25 tomato daemon.notice pppd[528]: Connection terminated.
    Apr 8 09:15:25 tomato daemon.notice pppd[528]: Modem hangup

    So can someone of you recreate this problem or had also issues with WiFi Scheduling?

    Thanks in advance!

    anyone have some test for WNR3500Lv2 ?
    I also found the WNR3500Lv1 has very weak signal reception. only TX Power is strong. this is not a green device.
    So I open the RF module in WNR3500Lv1, there is no LNAs module for RX signal. only has two AMP for TX operation.
    by the WNR3500Lv1 ,I disappoint netgear.

    I am currently stuck on a version of dd-wrt, and cannot seem to upgrade. I can use this .ckt to upgrade from dd-wrt to tomato?

    Shibby,

    Can you say why JFFS was disabled? I've got a v2 with 1.28 and I'd like to be able to install optware without using a USB drive. Is there any way to make use of the 128MB of storage that isn't used by Tomato?
