    Oki guys. I realy need help with USB share. I have searched and searched but cant seem to find the solution. I recently found the need to start using my USB share, but i am strugling in doing so. I have set it up correctly, and everything seems to be fine, but for some reason my windows 7 laptop is unable to access the share, even though it works perfectly fine with my Xp computer. I have googled about this issue and there are tons of things that one can do to solve, i have tried most of them but nothings seems to help. I wonder if i can upgrade my firmware to resolve this issue. I am able to see the shares, but not access them, please help me out of this. Below is some information on what firmware i am using:


    Tomato Firmware v1.27.9047 MIPSR2-beta16 K26 USB Ext

    USB support integration and GUI,
    Linux kernel 2.6.22.19 and Broadcom Wireless Driver 5.10.56.46 updates,
    support for additional router models and Wireless-N mode.

    I had a similar issue with ftp between Windows 7 and USB drive on RT-N16...disabling Windows firewall fixed it. Even though firewall was configured to allow ftp, I could connect, but couldn't xfer anything until I turned off the firewall.

    You are using a "very" old version of TomatoUSB. I would suggest you upgrade, whether it cures your problem or not. But Windows 7 is able to see all shares here without any mods.

    mvsgeek: i did try to disable firewall, but problem still remains. I am still getting the same error.

    Toastman: I am aware of the fact that i am using old firmware, and thats why i made this thread, so someone out there might point me in right direction to find the latest firmware. I would appritiate if you could tell me which one is the latest for my router, this might solve the USB / Windows 7 issue aswell. Please do reply.

    http://tomatousb.org/changelog

    is build 54. but even this came out like over 1 year ago, do you have any other which is more newer?

    Thank you very much mister. I appritiate the reply. Could you tell the difference between them? Does all of them have USB support? And can i use the GUI of my current firmware to upgrade to builds you suggest?

    Yooooohoooooo. I downloaded the following build: Tomato-RAF-K26USB-1.28.8950MIPSR2_VPN-BT.zip as i was strugling to download Toastmans build (it required Premium account or something), flashed it on my router, deleted all shares, reshared the USB drive and Viola. I was able to access the USB shares thru my Windows 7 computer. Thanks a ton for all og you guys who replied. Now i finally can share things on my network. By the way do you think the build i choose was good? I might experience a little bit on QOS function and VPN tunneling on it. Looks interesting.

    If you are downloading Toastman's build, you will need to create a free account. It's a feature that was recently built into the 4shared website.

    The build you choose was fine, however with the specs on the ASUS RT-N16, you can use the AIO build as well which has more features if you need it. You can see an overview of the features here: http://tomato.groov.pl/K26RT-N/build5x-083V/WNR3500Lv2/builds.png

    Also, just as a note this is the latest build which does include more features: http://tomato.groov.pl/index.php?dir=K26/build5x-092-EN . I have tested this build and it does work well.

    Oki dude, thanks a ton again. Am i suppose to download the following file if i want the latest build with lots of more features:

    tomato-K26USB-1.28.RT-MIPSR1-092-AIO.trx

    Can you confirm that before i flash it to my router. And would i need to reconfigure my router or will it keep the settings as it did when i flashed for some hours ago. I do hope i dont screw up the USB NAS share :)

    This is the proper firmware: http://tomato.groov.pl/K26/build5x-092-EN/tomato-K26USB-1.28.RT-MIPSR2-092-AIO.trx

    You can flash over top of your current firmware but it may cause some issues. Its usually suggested to erase NVRAM when upgrading and reconfigure. Also, I would suggest creating a backup of your current config so you can restore it if the newer firmware doesn't work properly on the first shot.

    Oki dude, i will make sure i stay away from the 60K so i dont brick my router.

    By the way, i flashed my router with the build you suggested, here is what happend

    Once i started flashing, it kept on doing it and the time went like above 6 minutes before i realized that it did not restore all the settings. Luckily as you suggested, i did take a backup of my config file so i went into my router using standard User/Pass and loaded the config file. It seems it did restore the configuration, but now i have problems loging into the router, neither the standard admin admin is working nor the one i had in my configuration. So is there any other standard user/pass to log into my router now?

    Riddlah Networkin' Nut Member

    I think you should be able to do it through telnet but I can't find the links on how to do it. If you need access to it, you could perform the 30/30/30 reset and then reconfigure
     
  17. Manna420

    Manna420 Networkin' Nut Member

    Will the 30/30/30 reset just clear the configuration or will it switch back to stock firmware aswell?
     
  18. Riddlah

    Riddlah Networkin' Nut Member

    It will erase all configurations you have made and revert it to the default settings from the firmware. Only way to go back to stock is to reflash it with the stock firmware.

    No i dont want to go back to stock firmware, but was just wondering if hard reset would result into that. Anyway, i tried my password today and i came right into the router, wonder if there was a software glitch which caused the issue. Everything is working just fine now. Even the USB share :) By the way where can i read about all the features this build provide? so i can experiment with them. Below is a copy of the firmware information which is installed on my router now:


    Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-092 K26 USB AIO
    USB support integration and GUI,
    IPv6 support,
    Linux kernel 2.6.22.19 and Broadcom Wireless Driver 5.10.147.0 updates,
    support for additional router models, dual-band and Wireless-N mode.

    Thanks dude, i already know about what features it provide, but what i ment is wheter there is a Wiki kind of thing for all the features on how to set it up and what theese features do. I hope you understand what i mean.

    Oki dude, i think i need your help. Something has been done with my router after upgrading to the build you suggested. For some strange reason, some of the devices in my network are simply unable to connect to my router wirelessly. It includes one of the laptops with Windows 7 on it, while other laptops with same OS are connecting without any problems. My Network bridge (use it for my printer) is also not able to connect to the wireless. I resetted my bridge and reconfigured it but still not connecting to my router wirelessly. Is there something i could do?

    Never mind, seems like i fixed the problem. It seems like upgrading the build did some changes to my Wireless settings aswell. I had to change the encryption from only TKIP to TKIP/AES. Now everything is connecting as it should.
