    Original image: http://tomato.groov.pl/download/K26/testing/WNDR3400v1/WNDR3400-V1.0.0.50_20.0.59-OFW.chk

    How to flash tomato:
    1) restore default settings
    2) flash using tomato image via GUI
    3) after flash leave router for 5-7 minutes until ping 192.168.1.1 will return
    4) log into Tomato and first of all erase nvram!!
    5) after erase 2nd radio will disapear. Dont panic :) Just make reboot one more time
    6) log into tomato and Have fun

    Support details:
    - both radios works
    - usb works
    - power led and usb led works correct
    - wps and reset buttons works
    - VLANs are not supported yet
    - wireless leds may not work correct
    - upgrade router via GUI will brick router!!

    How to revert to OFW:
    - flash ofw image via GUI
    - after flash router wuill brick and power led will blink green light
    - flash ofw image one more time using tftp client
    - after flash make 30-30-30 reset

    Best Regards!

    Working good so far. Thank you! :)

    Had to revert back to OFW from dd-wrt in order to flash but after that, I just followed your flashing instructions. My Wndr3400v1 is running in Wireless Ethernet Bride mode using the 2.4Ghz radio. Stuff seems to load much faster using Shibby's build than with dd-wrt. Nice work!

    The only thing I can't figure out how to do is getting the blue LED dome light on the side to turn off. It goes with the 5Ghz radio and indicates network traffic when the radio is ON but I'm not using the 5Ghz radio at this time. Not a big issue. I'm just glad to have Tomato running on this thing. :cool:

    Step 2 says to "upgrade via the GUI", but under support details it says "upgrade router via GUI will brick router!!" . Did I miss something?
     
  7. shibby20

    shibby20 Network Guru Member

    via GUI of OFW.

    When you try upgrade router from tomato then router will brick but then automatically will start tftpd server (recovery mode - blinking green power led) then you can flash new image using tftpd client without using serial cable.

    I was able to load Shibby's build directly from the OFW's upgrade GUI with no problems. But I had to flash back to OFW first. I initially tried to flash Shibby's build from dd-wrt (Brainslayer Build) but it refused to load for some reason. I strongly echo Shibby's suggestion in having a serial cable access to your Wndr3400v1. It will save you a lot of headaches.

    Shibby: No luck on your trick to disable the blue dome light on the side. That trick only disables the 2.4Ghz (eth1) indicator light on the front. What I'm referring to is a dome shaped 1.5-2 inch circle of clear plastic on the router's side that contains blue LEDs. Again this is a minor annoyance I can live with but if one has a way to turn it off, I would love to know. Somehow dd-wrt sucessfully disables this so I figure it can't be too hard. When the OFW is loaded, turning off the dome LED can be done by gently pressing the plastic activating some sort of embedded switch and it deactivates it until the router is reset.

    Hi,

    I had GUI update issues (was running DD-WRT, just wouldn't update or downgrade), but was able to remove this with "mtd erase linux", then "reboot" ... then tftp in the new build. Works fine now ... :) .

    As noted above, "upgrade router via GUI will brick router" - so is the best way to update later to do exactly this (erase linux, reboot, and tftp the new build)?

    Thanks Shibby - this is awesome!

    Hi shibby, first good job!

    I want to buy a wndr3400 to try, how can i difference v1 vs v2 in serie number?
     
  13. Jeffry

    Jeffry Networkin' Nut Member

    I can help with this one since I had to ask a Netgear sales representative via online chat back when I was looking for one. Good thing I saved that piece of paper. ;)

    V1 Serial numbers start with: 2BL, 2R8, 2PF, 2BK, 2R7, 2HT, 2RB, 2F0 (Not sure if should be zero or the letter "O"), and 2R9.

    These serial numbers are written on the outside of the box. You can also contact Netgear support and give them the serial number on the box and they will be able tell you if it's a V1 or V2. Most of what's in the stores now are V2 so you might have to do a bit of work in order to find a V1.

    Yes we will enjoy it :D > 6) log into tomato and Have fun

    btw is this Image full? tomato-Netgear-3400v1-K26USB-1.28.RT-101.chk
     
  15. Jeffry

    Jeffry Networkin' Nut Member

    I didn't quite understand step 4 and 5 either but I did them anyway. In step 4, I just went to the Admin->Configuration->Restore Default Configuration->Erase all data in Nvram. Router rebooted and then I logged in again and selected Reboot (listed on the left menu) to restart the router one more time. After that reboot, then I logged in and configured the router and it's been running ever since.

    As far as I can see from this image, it looks mostly complete. I'm only running my Wndr3400v1 as a Wireless Bridge so I don't need any of the other specialized features at this time.

    Like in my netgear firmware, I used http://192.168.1.1/shares/ to get to my hdd...

    btw i did turn on the Bittorrent Client under usb and nas, i try to open bittorrent by using this "click here to open transmission GUI"... but can't open it... it's says firefox can't find it.

    i`m not sure at the moment but propably this build does not support NTFS file system. Look on usb support page.

    This build does not have BT binaries included. Has only BT gui, well you have to install binaries from optware before you launch BT client

    Hi: I just got my WNDR3400, I used DD-WRT with my older routers, but it seems some guys are having issues.
    What do they mean to have a serial cable in case of bricking? how do you use the serial cable? Can I upgrade via the Netgear Router Upgrade feature?
    Thank you
    Mario
     
  25. Jeffry

    Jeffry Networkin' Nut Member

    Shibby recommends a serial cable access since this is port is still in its early stages. A usb-serial cable is recommend to gain access to the debugging console built into most routers. This allows you to do such things like easily reflash the router with a good stock rom to bring it back to life just in case something goes wrong. Otherwise, your router would just make a nice paperweight or doorstop. The cable would be either a Nokia CA-42 or a FTL TTL-232R-3V3 for example and the process of hooking it up would be something like http://www.myopenrouter.com/article...WNR3500Lv2-Using-Windows-and-a-USB-TTL-Cable/ for example but in the case with the Wndr3400v1. But with the Wndr3400, you have no header connector on the board so you would need to solder one yourself.
     
  26. Jeffry

    Jeffry Networkin' Nut Member

    Left out answering the last part of the question from previous post.. :confused: Yes you can upgrade from the Netgear firmware upgrade screen. In fact, it's the only method at this point that I've found to get Shibby's port loaded on the Wndr3400v1. Flashing from dd-wrt will fail - I've tried it. If you have dd-wrt installed, you will need to revert back to Netgear stock in order to load Tomato.

    Shibby, are there any plans to support the WNDR3400v2? It still has a Broadcom chipset (BCM5358UB0) but I know that doesn't necessarily mean anything...
    Shibby, czy są jakieś plany wspierające WNDR3400v2? Posiada chipset Broadcom (BCM5358UB0), ale wiem, że nie oznacza to będziesz go wspierać...
     
  28. Jeffry

    Jeffry Networkin' Nut Member

    That would be cool if the Tomato folks could beat the dd-wrt folks in getting open source firmware port for the v2. Unfortunately, the lack of broadcomm drivers for the 5ghz radio was one of the biggest hurdles holding pack such port on the dd-wrt side. The Linksys E2500 supposedly shares the same 5ghz radio chipset as the v2. Lately though, the dd-wrt team may have solved that issue on the E2500. Shibby may want to take a crack at a v2 port if some could help him get ahold of v2 to work on? Or maybe one of the other Tomato developers?

    If it would help, Netgear has published the source code for the v2 and other various routers at http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2649/~/gpl-open-source-code-for-programmers.

    Finallly Get wndr3400 v1, before to flash to tomato i check the process and it´s very simple, only have to put the firmware of shibby by GUI....

    Long wait... around 5 min and receive ping again,

    continue with the step 4) and 5).. very easier


    WOW, Tomato Done!

    and now i´m tryinng to connet with RT-N66U WDS

    Going on 1 1/2 months and this firmware seems to be very stable. :)

    Anybody find a way to turn off the blue orb light? I'd rather avoid having to open up the router and pull it's connector if I can help it.

  33. Dulex Cherenfant

    Dulex Cherenfant Serious Server Member

    That was simple and easy. I too would like to turn off the big blue light or push it to turn it off as it should be.
    the gpio # are many and you can accidentally kill your wifi or ethernet connection if you dont know the correct number to use. I wouldnt mess with them.
    Extract from the techinfo depot wiki page
    "Known GPIO pin support:
    gpio enable 0 - Turns on 5 GHz blue
    gpio disable 0 - Turns off 5 GHz blue
    gpio enable 2 - Turns off USB
    gpio disable 2 - Turns on USB
    gpio enable 3 - Turns power light to green
    gpio disable 3 - Turns power light off
    gpio enable 7 - Turns power light to orange
    gpio enable 7 - Turns power light from orange off"
     
  34. Jeffry

    Jeffry Networkin' Nut Member

    Sadly, "gpio disable 0" has no effect on the orb light but it shuts off 5ghz radio light in the front panel. :( I think this is going to need to be done at the kernel level which means hacking the source code.

    I see Shibby released a new firmware but I'm not sure if he has a wndr3400v1 port yet?

    Hi
    I am using this build and all seems to work fine except for the bubble light and WIFI reach. If I go to the my bedroom and I live in a 3 bedroom townhouse, my iPhone disconnects frequently. I have read some of the tutorials and have changed channel from 11 to 6 and again from 6 to 7 and now I am trying channel 9 since it seems that my neighbors prefer channel 11. I also changed the transmit power to 64nw, but the issue still persist.
    any advise will be appreciated.
    Thank you

    Does anyone have any idea why I am getting such a low Rate on my 2.4 radio? When I have it configured for Auto, I can only manage 39 Mbps at best.
    When I select N only for it, it goes to 54 Mbps.
    I have no problem with the 5 radio so far.
    I need to have auto on for the 2.4 radio, I have many devices in the house that are not mine that are G only, not N.
    I desperately need to run Tomato on my wndr3400 as well, I have many people on a residential network that are torrenting, leeching, streaming HD video, etc.
    I need to use the BW limiter which works PERFECTLY so far, the only problem is the low rate on the 2.4 network. Anyone have any ideas on things to try?

    I noticed in that guys picture up top of the thread that he had 2.4 on auto and he was managing 300 Mbps.

    What is with the huge difference?

    Is this an issue with interference?

    Hi:
    I am currently using the following build: Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-101 K26 USB and it appears that there is a new build but I am not sure if it I should upgrade and which of the following I should use.
    Thank you
    Mario
    • K26 – Kernel 2.6, MIPSR2 – newer routers like RT-N16, E2000, E3000, E4200 (without 5GHz), WNR3500Lv1 etc. Older MIPSR1 routers are also supported
    • K26RT-N – MIPSR2 – special builds for E4200, RT-N10U, RT-N12B1/C1, RT-N15U, RT-N53, RT-N66U, WNR3500Lv2 and newer Linksys E-series routers

    The only difference between the RT and RT-N builds is the wireless driver. Some folks have better stability/success with the older RT driver, while others find the exact opposite with the RT-N driver. If you aren't sure, stick with the RT build.

    Koitsu:
    One more question:
    What is AIO and BT-VPN and Tor-VPN? I am not using VPN now but may in future:
    I appreciate your help
    Thank you
     
  45. koitsu

    koitsu Network Guru Member

    I'm not sure what AIO means in this context, other than AIO (asynchronous I/O capability) for Samba. I need a firmware author (Shibby, Toastman, etc.) to clarify if that's what it means.

    BT-VPN means the router has a BitTorrent server/client built into it (that runs on the router itself), as well as OpenVPN (that also runs on the router itself).

    Tor-VPN means the router has a Tor node/server built into it (that runs on the router itself), as well as OpenVPN (that also runs on the router itself).

    If none of these things you care about/use, then it's not worth using a firmware that has them. They just increase the firmware size dramatically (particularly the VPN builds).

    There is a web page somewhere explaining all of these "build types" but I cannot for the life of me remember where it is.

    Update on my situation: I changed the Channel and I managed to increase the rate.
    Now it is at 54.

    To kaibil:
    Have you flashed this new build yet? Are you stable with it?

    shibby, can you confirm there is a new version for the wndr3400???

    when can we expect this to come out of beta???

    Mangix Networkin' Nut Member

    wait so the wndr3400 works with 104 now? that's news to me... i thought it was still limited to a testing build.
     
  51. Mangix

    Mangix Networkin' Nut Member

    No. If I were you I'd ignore that reading. Broadcom tends to be flaky in this area...

    The thing you also need to keep in mind is that if you have devices using G and N at the same time, all the devices will drop to G speeds.

    Another thing to keep in mind is that wifi is a simplex protocol. Any reading you get, divide it by 2 and you should get your actual speed.

    The only solution to this is to have two wifi networks, one G only and the other N only. I don't believe that simply adding a virtual interface will do it. You probably need a second device.

    Also, wifi speed must decrease if a device that is really far away from the access point in order to even transfer data.
     
  52. Jeffry

    Jeffry Networkin' Nut Member

    As far as I know, the wndr3400v1 is still limited to the test build and sadly that tipped me over the edge in getting rid of mine. I had been considering changing out routers and couldn't pass up a getting one of the last E3200's I could find. ;)

    Thank you for your reply
    I tried the 104 VPN build in my wndr3400 and it said it was to big, then it went to the reboot process.
    The reason for being inpatient is that I have trible with my iPhone 4s, it keeps dropping the connection in my bedroom and I only have a 3 bedroom home, other than this all works fine.
    I order a refurbish powerline extender, hopefully this will solve the issue, however, I am not sure if it is compatible with tomato.
    I really like Tomato

    Are you so sure about that?

    I am having no issues with running two totally seperate radios on mine.

    2 radios, 1 giving me 54, and the other giving me 300... which in real world speeds are different.
     
  56. mango123d

    mango123d Serious Server Member

    That is what I have. One network, two radios.
    They are on seperate frequencies.
    There is no impact on speed afaik.
    I am not running G things on an "N" network expecting N speeds. I know better.
     
  57. Mangix

    Mangix Networkin' Nut Member

    When i made the distinction of G and N I was talking about the 2.4GHz band only since that is what you seem to be having issues with.

    You are getting 300mbps on the 5GHz radio for one of several reasons. You have no devices that can use 5GHz and so the second radio is just broadcasting its ESSID, You have devices amazingly close to the router to get that speed, or the reading is just plain wrong. I have no idea which it is.

    As for the wifi speed decrease, I remember a situation where company X was having issues with the battery life on its laptops. It turned out that the main access point was broadcasting at power that was too low and so the laptops had to work extra hard to keep the connection. Ultimately this meant that the actual mbps rate was very low, too low for actual use.

    No, I do have devices connected to the 5 ghz band.
    You're saying that 300mbps is not a realistic or correct reading for a 5ghz N only network?
     
  59. mango123d

    mango123d Serious Server Member

    And by the way, that is only what the router information page reports, not the actual speeds that I have been noticing. I also haven't measured speeds from local to local device. I have only been toying with what I get on speedtest.net
     
  60. Mangix

    Mangix Networkin' Nut Member

    300mbps is correct to the extent that it is the rate at what the radio is broadcasting at. once you connect a device, it will go slightly down.

    as for speed testing, iperf is your friend.

    the fastest speed for an 802.11g connection that i've gotten is around 23mbps. the theoretical max is 27mbps but YMMV.

    Wow Shibby, this is awesome, in my area almost every single cablevision subscriber get's this "free" router when they lock into contract and many my friends, family, and personal clients have this. It's a piece of junk by default imo, but now with Tomato I think given it's hardware is not too bad it might actually be a credible router. I will give this a try soon as I can.

    BTW, are you keeping your update hardware list page up to date, I don't see this router listed in there, even if you all it just "Beta"

    Even though a new comer here but I've been a long time fan of Shibby tomato in the RT-N16/n12 age.
    Now I've moved to wndr3400 (as a wireless AP only for the living room), just tried this version. It's NICE to have the good old feel and full control back.
    BUT, here is the iperf wireless performance compared to stock 1.0.0.50_20.0.59, all are iperf -w 128k -t 60 -P5:
    stock
    2.4G 93 Mb/s
    5G, 143 Mb/s

    Tomato
    2.4G 89.2 Mb/s
    5G 94 Mb/s <----- This is significant!

    Is there anyway to improve on the 5g performance?

    PS. These are based on AP mode only so no load on WAN NAT.

    Oops. Made a mistake since I mixed up the numbers with WNDR3700V2.
    Here's the update numbers, tomato outperform on 2.4G significantly and about the same on 5G.

    Stock/2.4/5G = 43/93 Mb/s
    Tomato = 94.2/93.6 Mb/s <---- amazing

    PS. All are N with WPA2/TKIP/AES

    Thank you shibby,
    It took me a while but I found out how to name the hostname.
    I don't want to take advantage, but if anyone can tell me if using a Seagate 2 Gigabyte USB Desktop Agent drive will decrease the speed of the router, I feel like all my computers are struggling, I hope not because except for this issue all seems to be working great.
    Thank you

    Is 105 compatible with the wndr3400? What flavor you using?

    I am afraid that those waiting for an updated wndr3400v1 build may be waiting in vain? Shibby may not have time to actively support it anymore.

    Hi
    This is real shame, it was almost there, why waste what is already achieved.

    Is there something we can do to change your mind?
    Help you in anyway
    thank you

    I will probably keep the beta, all works fine except for the USB drive, I am not able to find how to be able to write to it, is there, it appears in my PC's, but when I try to make a folder or try to transfer a file, it will not let me.
    Any one has a simple tip or solution?
    Thank you

    Works beautiful! :)

    If something is needed for testing, let me know :)

    I already run TomatoUSB on a WNR3500L V1 and it is nice build :)

    Looking forward to be running the same nice build, with 5GHz support too ;-)

    Hi,

    Just curious so ... and thoughts / plans about making this part of the "official" build? I'm using it, and it works great, but no real updates until it is part of the core - correct?

    Thanks very much!!!

    Hi shibby20,

    I tried to add two iptables rules. But once I added them, the wndr3400 got crashed soon. Could you take a look what's wrong with the firmware version? There is no helpful logs in /var/log/messages file.Thanks first.

    #Limit UDP and other connections per user
    iptables -I FORWARD -m iprange --src-range 10.1.11.2-10.1.11.254 -p ! tcp -m connlimit --connlimit-above 50 -j DROP

    #Limit max TCP connections per user
    iptables -I FORWARD -p tcp -m iprange --src-range 10.1.11.2-10.1.11.254 -m connlimit --connlimit-above 110 -j DROP

    naivelin - some time ago we discovered that the answer was to put the rules in the PREROUTING chain

    Here are some examples:

    #Restrict number of TCP connections per user
    iptables -t nat -I PREROUTING -p tcp --syn -m iprange --src-range 192.168.1.50-192.168.1.250 -m connlimit --connlimit-above 100 -j DROP

    #Restrict number of non-TCP connections per user
    iptables -t nat -I PREROUTING -p ! tcp -m iprange --src-range 192.168.1.50-192.168.1.250 -m connlimit --connlimit-above 50 -j DROP

    #Restrict number of simultaneous SMTP connections (from mailer viruses)
    iptables -t nat -I PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 25 -m connlimit --connlimit-above 5 -j DROP

    Sorry, perhaps a dumb question - but any luck getting this router in to the mainstream?

    Thanks!

    Working beautful for me :) Loving the way the 5GHz light flashes for wireless network activity:) I have upgraded from OpenWrt webGUI - 1) Go to System / Upgrade (Firmware Upgrade) 2) Upload the .trx file image and click on the Upgrade button 3) Wait 2 minutes. The router will reboot itself automatically after the upgrade is complete 4)

    • Do a hard reset and clear your browsers cache
    • You are done! Access the router via http://192.168.1.1

    Im thinking of giving this ago (Toastman's build)

    Anyone tryed it?

    http://www.4shared.com/file/7grHGP7H/tomato-K26USB-NVRAM60K-1280502.html

    @Lambo029
    ftp://dd-wrt.com/others/eko/BrainSl...d-wrt.v24-21676_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini-WNDR3400.chk
    then upgraded to
    ftp://dd-wrt.com/others/eko/BrainSl...6/dd-wrt.v24-21676_NEWD-2_K2.6_mega-nv64k.bin

    All flashed fine with me on my test unit (used this build for my main one) but ones flashed to .chk give it 2mins for it power on (Is not bricked) just takes time to read the info.

    support for this router is not included in that build. Only the test build at the top of this thread works.

    Hello!
    I would like to personally thank Shibby for his hard work and dedication!

    I am also sorry to resurrect an old thread.

    Today, I flashed my WNDR3400 v1 to Shibby's Tomato! I love the interface! Light years better than stock!

    I would like to do 2 things: have a 2.4Ghz b/g for older devices and a 5Ghz for n devices.

    It seems the 5Ghz band is not broadcasting to all but one of my devices. When I try to connect to it manually, the device fails to connect!
    My old laptop, which has a wireless G onboard chipset, can see my 5Gzh SSID. NO other device can see it! Including my Ipad 4, Razr Maxx, my brand new Asus laptop with i5 and Wireless n+.

    Can anyone offer some advice? I just need basic settings. Nothing fancy.

    Thanks again!

    Some help from anybody would be greatly appreciated.

    I got to step three to flash the router from GUI however the ping never returned. The blue antenna light just keeps blinking but never connects. I went to update software and browse then selected the image file and uploaded it. Everything went fine but now I can't ping the router. What can I do?

    Yes I followed the start of the thread. I used the image given from the start of the thread. I do remember when upgrading, it told me the software I was installing was older.

    New here. So we can flash Tomato on the WNDR3400v2 by building from source? Do we have to use this arrmo's branch or are his changes in the main shibby-tomato branch?
