You do not see it but to build in E-4200 1.28.9007
Victek not wait to try your latest build 1.28.9007 E-4200 I installed the version released today by our friend Toastman but are unstable and too many bugs-4200
Please inform Toastman about problems you found, it will help all of us (in fact most of the code we use is public, so, shared). For sanity do a complete nvram erase and do not restore previous configuration you kept, then configure from scratch.
when you leave your last release? 9007per-4200 and
if someone want test my build (K26RT-N) for E4200 with working dualband
I try it and I'll let you know ....
hi all, need some help regarding openvpn using victek latest 9006 build. everything is working fine, but using udp i cant set the option "connect-retry"? Why?? My client is sending a udp packet every 2 seconds. This traffic is unnecesarry. I know about the difference of tcp and udp.
if (options->connect_retry_defined && options->proto != PROTO_TCPv4_CLIENT)
msg (M_USAGE, "--connect-retry doesn't make sense unless also used with --proto tcp-client");
Can someone tell me a work around? How can i set the time between eacht connection retry? In my opinion it makes sense for upd. THX for your answers
if (options->connect_retry_defined && options->proto != PROTO_TCPv4_CLIENT)
msg (M_USAGE, "--connect-retry doesn't make sense unless also used with --proto tcp-client");
Hello Shibby ppiacere to meet you.'m Testing your build under your advice TomatoFirmware 1.28.0000 MIPSR2 K26 USB-079V Mega-VPN ... I wanted to expose thefirst problem with IPv6 configured tunnels Hurricane ip no updates, it gives me this problem (Thu Oct 13 2011 18:14:53 GMT +0200 (Central Daylight Time):
Unknown error (-1).
(1 / 3: Automatically retrying in 16 minutes) What do you think?
Nice to meet Shibby'm testing your build .. it seems ok for now let's see if it is stableuntil tomorrow .. ok
Tomato RAF 1.28.9007 for E3000/E4200 ready. Changelog:
_ Dual Band
_ Busybox 1.19.2
_ Selectable Interface for NoCat Splash
_ 5GHz band with all available channel for outdoor usage.
_ Test and feedback.
Downloading for test, thank you Victek.
Correct, booth version have been tested 18 days/24 hr, compiled today, second one is suitable for E4200 v1.
Done, E4200 home flashed and reconfigured. Testing for a week or two then I'll start updating the customers'.
I love I can now use 2x 2.4ghz wireless (I don't care about 5ghz yet).
- Downloading seems a little faster. Better/faster kernel/drivers?
- Blu-ray streaming seems faster. Boxee Box @~30ft/~10mt, 2.4ghz, 20mhz, channel 13.
Victek, what's the fastest way to enable the eth2 as wifi guest network?
where can i download the 9007 firmware for e4200? thank you so much
Also I have a question, I have set up QoS and everything works fine, like limiting p2p and streaming software. The only problem I am having is when I do my speedtest with QOS off, i can get like 18-19mps, with QOS on, the maximum I can get its probably around 11,12, most of the time is 9, I tried it when I was the only computer connected, I have set my MAC address to highest class with 100% rate and 100% maximum outbound limit, I tried no limit as well, also 100% inbound limit and no limit on inbound...just can't solve it, any ideas? Thank you so much!
I am so happy to see firmware available from you with the Linksys E4200! I have been running stock version for about 6 months now with no issues. My hold up from flashing was no 5ghz being available. But, I see it is now! Few questions if you or anyone else could kindly answer. I have not used Tomato since selling my WRT54GL months ago with your firmware on it.
1. Is flashing still the same? Restore factory defaults with stock firmware. Flash and then clear NVRAM with in the gui after it is done?
2. Is the latest release still Beta firmware? If so. Any ETA when it becomes official?
3. Do we lose CTF, the guest wireless network and media server function?
4. Does the 5ghz channel support allow dual channels for 450mbps support like stock firmware?
5. Any well known bugs? Is is pretty stable? Its very important my network is stable.
6. Do you have a virtual gui for it? I would love to see the new settings and tinker around with it virtually before loading it.
7. Are the signal power settings adjustable? I actually have no interest in adjusting them. But, want to make sure they are loaded at the stock firmware levels upon flashing the new firmware.
The CTF (Cut-Through Forwarding) option improves the efficiency of packet forwarding between the local network and the Internet. To use the CTF option, keep the default, Enabled.
Hi, Victek, we were missing you. Happy to go further.
Appreciate for changelog for e3000, please...
Same as E4200, changed in the subject of my first post. Thank you.
In the site showed in my signature, then click in Tomato RAF tab at the top right corner in the main page, close to Home tab.
Victek, what's about include netatalk/afp protocol? You twitted about testing it
Excuse me, where do I download the firmware Victek] Tomato RAF 1.28.9007 forE3000/E4200 on there site yet 1.28.9006 potrsti give me the direct link? because I can not wait to try it ......
Flashed it last night. Going strong, no problem at all! Thanks Victek!
Thanks Victek installed on my E-4200 and a show put under test ...... Thanks again for the work they perform for us .....
A word of advice ... I have a Synology NAS 209 how can I set the qos as best as possible on the Nas and installed Emule and torrents ..... Thanks again .
In the RT branch, the RT-N branch is by far more complex with new drivers .. and new problems... step by step.. I'll do too.
Read topic about QoS in the forum, Toastman have wide experience to handle.. I don't use QoS...
Coming from 9006.
I guess we can say AP Isolation is a guest network, I was already using that and I will keep using it.
Any idea when the non usb mipsr2 version will be out.
What about RT-N10U support? This little router looks really good
Thanks again Victek for answering my questions! Looks like I might just have to load it this weekend. Really miss Tomato.
What model do you have?
ok thanks. Tomorrow I will install new version and will post result. Keep the superb job you are doing.
Not sure if this would help with development or not. And I would imagine. You are aware of the page any ways. But, here is a screen shot of the hidden advanced menu in the stock latest firmware for E4200. And here is the link to get to it. http://192.168.1.1/Wireless_Advanced.asp
I'm testing Tomato RAF 1.28.9007 for E4200 and am seeing a problem where the unit keeps rebooting itself. Can someone see if they can reproduce it? All other settings are default.
On the 2.4 wireless:
Change wireless mode to Access Point + WDS
On WDS, change to Link With... and enter MAC address
The unit will then keep rebooting until the configuration is reset via the switch. I can see all the link lights on the ethernet ports flash in unison.
Also, if I configure everything without ever rebooting the unit, the Access Point + WDS doesn't work. My other units are WRT54GS running Tomato USB (tomato-ND-1.28.8754-vpn3.6)
Same issue, but with two E3000 in WDS
The main unit goes into a boot loop, and the only way to fix it was a 30-30-30 reset. I was afraid I had bricked it.
The 2nd unit in WDS does not have this issue, and has been working just fine.
Right now I'm back to 9006 on my main E3000(the one connected to the internet) and 9007 on the one acting as a repeater(Access Point + WDS)
Aaron, was the second network (eth2) disabled? If enabled, 2.4Ghz? 5Ghz?
Enabled as 5GHz on both E3000 units
My E3000 only shows 5GHz as an option for eth2
WDS is running on 2.4GHz/eth1
I am new to tomato, I used to be able to renew my ip address by just cloning my pc's mac address to my router's, but in tomato i cant do the same, even if I clone/random my e4200'mac address, and reboot my cable modem and everything, the cable modem just wont assign a ip address to the router, any idea? Thanks
I have the advantage of having two E4200 routers to test. I have this build running right now and cannot find any problems to report. This build has slightly better wireless throughput than Victek's 9007, but Toastman's 0486 build has somewhat better yet. And while it may not make sense, the Shibby and Victek builds seem better on the WAN to LAN wired switch to my engineering workstation.
I have tested DDNS, Port Forwarding, running clients on both radios w/WPA2 Personal AES, ....I have maintained patience while you guys worked through this, but Tomato is so much better that stock. DD-WRT took a stab at the E4200, but to date has not come close to what has been accomplished with Tomato.....brilliant work....thanks
How far out is guest network and media server from working? Curious.
Victek Have passed 15 hours of uptime and all congratulations for the beautiful work stable ....Every so often I find this error in the logging system, ioctl (s, SIOCGIFADDR, ...): Can notassign Requested Address .......... which means?
Who found this problem in the logs Neighbour tableoverflow modem set in half bridge we set as a solution in screanshot below ..
My 2nd E3000 just went into a boot loop after changing the 5GHz/eth2 wireless channel to Auto and saving.
Aaron, stupid question, did you fully erase the NVRAM after the update?
I have no problem obtaining a new public IP... is your cable modem working as modem or router?
I would recommend you 1.28.9006 for your E3000, pretty stable and no WDS problems. I'm investigating WDS config for new wireless drivers, I did'nt test before release..
Link for E3000 firmware version 1.28.9006 = http://alturl.com/m2q64
it's a cable modem
Right down to it nothing to report on E-4200 is the largest vers.1.28.9007
Victek questions, you can do something that is not flashing LED on the 4200?
It would be interesting to add as a feature in the web gui Setting wl_wmf_bss_enable= 1 will allow us Wireless Multicast Forwarding, which allows you to watch IPTV over Wi-Fi without UDPXY!
The network would then host the best ....
Anyway .. thanks for all the hard work you do ....
On my first attempt I didn't. I just flashed 9007 over 9006, and went into a boot loop right after the flash completed.
After that I had to do a 30-30-30 reset to get back up and running. Then I did a thorough NVRAM clear, redid all settings, and was working until I changed a setting in Basic>Network
Looks to be WDS related like Victek said. Both units are back to 9006, and WDS is back online
Installed 9007 over 9006 on my wrt610Nv2 converted to E3000.
I have need to do two nvram clear, because 5ghz doesn't appear on my iMac (possible that the first nvram doesn't erased all), and now on 9007 working very fine and fast.
Installed 1.28.9007 on my E4200. Working great. Personally have never had an issue with a Victek build. I do not use WDS, just the basics and dual band. Thanks for the great work Victek. Have always found that your builds of Tomato were always much better then any of the others. Not sure what you do different since you all compile from the same basic source but keep it up.
I know it is probably just because I like your builds better but things seem faster browsing the web. Had latest Toastman's E4200 support installed before which is also a good build.
I am testing my E4200 with victek new release 9007 and router is going faster and more stable but i have a question.
I have a Linksys E4200 connected with an adsl router in bridge mode.
Ip address of router bridge mode is: 192.168.2.1
Ip address of E4200 es: 192.168.1.1
How can I access to the adsl router?
In Bridge you can not access the modem at least you do not have a Digicom cx combo at half-bridge with ppp-extetion activated, this function can only access the modem or the modem in the menu ... must have a function with the second IP service ....
To Access ADSL modem etc. from behind the router
Enter the following scripts into these sections of ADMIN/SCRIPTS page:
init: or wan up: ip addr add 192.168.2.13/24 dev $(nvram get wan_ifname) brd +
(you may need a "sleep 5" line first to give a delay)
firewall: iptables -I POSTROUTING -t nat -o $(nvram get wan_ifname) -d 192.168.2.0/24 -j MASQUERADE
The first allocates an IP (192.168.2.13) and a different subnet to the appropriate vlan interface (port) for your router. Normally this port doesn't have an IP so we have to give it one, so that we can use it to add a route. There's nothing special about the .13 - choose what you want. Since we wish to access your modem, the subnet is chosen to be the same as that of the modem.
The second script sets a route for that subnet via that vlan interface (port) to the modem.
The scripts should discover the correct vlan for your router from NVRAM.
You can check your routing list in Advanced-Routing menu to see if the route is there.
Now you should be able to access your modem by typing its IP into the browser. Please note that not all modems seem to respond to this, though, even if they work just fine when connected directly to a PC.
Toastman, who are you responding to? To the WDS loop reboot problem?
Now you should be able to access your modem by typing its IP into the browser.
Victek how can I get the theme on your build Linksys or Cisco?
It has been more than twenty-four hours of uptime, great build ..... ok ........
What are you talking about? It wasn't me that asked that.
Please guys read the previous posts or you're going to make a big mess here, I was just asking Toastman to who or which post he was referring to.
post 1273 by Asturnauta .. who wishes to access his modem ...
Sorry my misstake.
djroby, you can find the answers to your questions easily using the search function. You might also look at the "Common Tomato Topics" help thread in the main Tomato page (a sticky) - which contains the following link:
Also, can you please not spam these threads with pointless messages every day, this isn't a social networking site.
look here: http://linksysinfo.org/index.php?threads/rt-n10u-new-router-with-usb-supported-by-tomato.35566/
I will publish test build tomorrow.
Thanks Toastman, it works fine
Toastman thank you for the suggestion but the problem using WinSCP does not make me add the theme files in the www folder saying that there are no rights to write.....
That's why you have to search for tutorials, like Toastman said.
Yes, but do not write the tutorial how to unlock the write-read tells you to put a temporary folder but every reboot clears wwwext
I would ask you to enter in Victek build a theme dedicated for E-4200 do you think? So even my customers are happy with Linksys Router using ...
How do you feel with this latest build of E-4200?
I am happy to be a wonder to it .....
i have a linksys e4200 and loaded Tomato RAF 1.28.9007. its working fine with my virginmedia cable connection on auto dhcp settings. but i am thinking to change isp provider soon, and move with bt infinity which uses vdsl and ppoe, - will this firmware autodetect settings from the new vdsl modem?, or do i have to change things manually, i tried to see where do i change them but could not find the settings location within the firmware interface.. ?
BASIC-Network-WAN Interface (top of page)
Can someone help me please -- > I have a problem with my client configuration of OpenVPN. I use it in UDP mode and i can't set the variable "connect-retry" because as upd is a non connected protocol. Aniway I'd like to change time between each connection retry but how? THX
I would report my problem with E4200 with last victek release 1.28.9007. I try to set the band 2.4 as Client-WDS or Wireless bridge to join to another E2000 with 1.28.9006 also victek. All working better without any issue but i see that the speed drop after a couple of minutes from 216/260 mbit to fixed 54mbit or less 19.5. I try to tuning the wireless advanced settings but nothing change this strang behaviour. The 5ghz band works very well with my mbp, the link is to maxium speed of 450Mbit.
Also I try to switch off my cordless dect on 2.4 band, and turn off some other equipment without luck.
I recently updated to latest Victek release 1.28.9007 on my E3000. Under Access Restriction i have a rule that disables wireless access every night between 01.00-07.00. After the update the wireless signal doesn't turn on again at 07.00. When i updated i made a full reset to avoid problems. Could this be a bug?
I've reported this problem many times is that Victek Toastman and Shibby ...
djroby, yes, I notice you posted the same thing around a hundred times already in every thread on two websites. WHY?
It works fine for me, I turn off wireless at 10 p.m. and turn it on at 7 a.m.
i tested twice on RT-N10U (tomato-RT-N-079V) and works fine. Wireless was turned off at 11am and turn on 1pm.
I'm just trying all the different versions, and so far everything I have tried is working just fine on my E3000 and E4200. I am not seeing any of the weird problems some of the people here are complaining about. My E4200 which wasn't working before is now working well on 5GHz and I don't have to use that dreadful OEM software any more.
So kudos to everyone concerned and a big thank you.
Shibby The problem is in particular the E-4200 also turning off the wifi with the blue button for 2 seconds will not turn back, I'm forced to reboot the router and a rule is likely to turn on wifi wrong ...
Blue button?.. it's not active in tomato firmware. I have E4200, timer schedule for wireless works, Do you set wake up to 7:00 am (morning) or 7:00 pm (afternoon) ? And .. tell us what version do you use finally, shibby version or my version.
Shibby do you like that I post in your thread about the releases I do?, be kind please....
I tried both with your build 1.28.9007 than with that of the same problem .. Shibby ..79v tutor also works because the blue button on the gui tells me when I disabled and enabled push for 2 seconds to 2 seconds when it repels. . but no effect on the wifi,there's probably a problem under cron ... you know the formula through scripts to see if this works?
Victek Thanks for the work you do for us
Excuse my English
Uploaded with ImageShack.us
Just to let you know. I did a thorough "Erase all data in NVRAM" one more time on my E3000 and started all over and now the the schedule to disable wireless between 01.00 and 07.00 works perfectly. I guess its a good idea to run the erase AFTER upgrading and not just when upgrading. Anyway, thanks for the great work on the 1.28.9007 release.
I do not see any problem. I want help, thats all. If you want i will not write in Your thread.
I wrote to you a PM. It would be nice if you wrote back.
Victek - did not want to spark any controversy with Shibby, I'm using my router on yourE4200 firmware 1.28.9007, by chance you find some solution to my problem?
I wanted to do a test with a script to turn the wifi via cron you have something in mindhow
Thank you all for the great work they perform for us
Victek Then may be I found the problem, I performed a clean install first with the stock Linksys firmware and then installed the 30/30/30 and buid your 1.28.9007 and now it seems that it works off the wifi ....... .
Now I was seeing in my Device list is filled with the same address macadress how can I reduce this list? You have a suggestion?
I got my serial cable ready, I have my Linksys E1000 v2.1 router(s) ready... Shibby has been assisting with creating a build of Tomato firmware for the E1000 v2.1 Linksys routers but at this point is unable to continue. Anyone else able to help out please and/or support the E1000 v2.1 routers?
I know Toastman's (teddy's) USB tomato firmware have implemented the Linksys E1000 v1 routers. Please head over to this thread for further information about the v2.1 router -> http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.ph...mware-for-linksys-e1000-v2-1-will-help.35630/
You only have to turn wifi ON then they all MAC's disappear.
Can you be more specific I speak in the device list it floods vlan2 ip addresses and I have a modem in half-bridge ...
Victek I have a problem with the ipv6 tunnel Hurricane.
With the PC connected to Ethernet IPv6 functions, but with the pc wifi me fail a test, what does not work right?
Any chance at getting an updated RT-N16 build? Both Dnsmasq and have been updated
Victek where are you?
I've read my posts?
djroby19, I've told you once before, you have to relax and wait, this is not an Italian forum. People have lives, work, other things to do other than entertain kids that want to play with routers and firmwares.
I don't think this guy will take the hint. Everything he touches he screws up, and then posts complaints and requests for people to fix his problems multiple times on every thread on two websites. And he wonders why he doesn't get any replies?
Prima di tutto non sono un bambino ho quasi 50 anni , ho una famiglia con 2 bambini e lavoro anche io come perito elettronico da 30 anni e mi sa che sono più grande di tè,poi a Victeck non gli servono avvocati difensori,e nessuno stà chiedendo niente a nessuno ho solo riportato i miei feedback per risolvere i problemi su queste versioni...e poi rispodi sempre quando non devi rispondere e non rispondi quando ti si chiede di provare cron su altro thread....
But to you that you care how many threads around and if you have seen me on other threads is to turn them too .. I do not think Victeck if taken bad and I do not want to answer, think before you say anything, and thanks for the young give me ... ...
djroby19, my last ot, nobody cares what you do and how old you are, stop acting like a kid.
Acting like a kid:
- Test new firmwares for two days and decide that something doesn't work properly, even though the feature has been tested for weeks. This behavior confuses the modder/developer.
- Post and ask for answers repetitively, like Italians act on Italian forums (wonder why no one likes us on internet communities?).
- Stay behind and reply to people's questions too early just because you think you know/have deeply tested something (I just did this to you but that was an exception).
- Keep going OT like I'm doing right now (PM if you have problems).
I believe it's time for a moderator to step in here.
DJroby, nobody is here to be your your personal valet. You have made 83 posts and few of them make any sense, most of them are repeated nagging in an attempt to force a reply. You reply to other people's questions with incorrect and misleading information. Enough is enough. Sensible and polite questions, posted once and waiting for a reply, are fine. If you do not get a reply, just accept that nobody wants to answer your question, and just leave it.
Can I hear a... "AMEN"???
AMEN... Mr. Toastman... AMEN
I installed tomato-E4200USB-NVRAM60K-1.28.9007MIPSR2_RAF-VPN-NOCAT.bin and some other firmwares on my brand new e4200. It first seemed to work flawlessly, but when I connect two laptops over Wireless N, 2.4 GHZ the router crashes (reboots) regulary! I even managed to get the device to crash only by changing some Access Point Parameters and continue clicking in the GUI! So installed some other similar firmwares:
... same problems ...
Now I installed the stock firmware again to see if it is also crashing.
Thus, a hardware failure seems not to be the reason...
Whar can I do to run tomato? I need the router tomrrow as a firewall...
Are there any configuration parameters that I may tweak to get the stuff working?
every advice is greatly appreciated!
Harry, not sure why you are posting about Toastman builds in Victek's thread. Might want to post you question/issue in Toastman Releases thread. I am currently running Victek's 9007 on my E4200 without any issues. --bill
the first build that I installed over the original firmware was tomato-E4200USB-NVRAM60K-1.28.9007MIPSR2_RAF-VPN-NOCAT.bin from Victek which didn't work (see my first post). I mentioned the results of the installation of the Toastman builds to indicate that the problem occurs on other builds to and is not Victek specific. Maybe a problem with the kernel? No one experienced similar problems?
