New Victek releases

    My understanding is that benchmarking tests shows that 2.4 is faster than 2.6. I believe 2.4 is also considered to be more stable than 2.6. On the other hand, 2.6 is required for the latest Broadcom drivers.

    My guess is that Victek is attempting to take the best of 2.6 and back-port it to 2.4, perhaps to allow the latest Broadcom drivers without incurring the speed and reliability hit of going fully to a 2.6 kernel. But that is pure speculation.

    Ron, I was thinking about this a few days ago. Question - has anyone tested and made any comparisons between similar compiles, and published their result? I remember seeing many statements by people in passing, but can't remember anyone actually trying to establish what the difference actually is.

    tomato 1.23 / 1.25 / 1.27 / 1.28 Std and ND drivers
    RAF as above

    and then a comparison on the RT version of tomatoUSB?

    I may try to trawl the forums this evening for any results and compile some sort of table if there is sufficient information.

    Aha! I found the quote I remember reading here:
    Although that does not compare Tomato-to-Tomato, there is also an external article here that comes to the same conclusion.

    2.4 is faster due to less overhead. I haven't seen any real stability differences between 2.4 and 2.6 in quite a long time - throughput is the only real (current) difference, and 2.4 will always win.

    So what advantage does 2.6 give?
     
  6. rhester72

    rhester72 Network Guru Member

    2.6 has many, *many* kernel advances that made many application features possible that hadn't been before, particularly in the area of drivers and networking stacks. It didn't make a great deal of difference on routers in the past because of the very small number of applications (busybox, dnsmasq, et al) in use, but the increased use of direct binary drivers (Broadcom and others) compiled for 2.6 combined with more powerful router hardware (making many applications possible that would not have been before) has led the charge. OpenWRT, for instance, will be abandoning 2.4 altogether post-Backfire. The 2.4.20 branch used by most alternative router solutions was also very, VERY buggy, and the patchset backported to it by various authors almost exceeded the (used) size of the source itself. =)

    Is there any change to insert IPv6 in the Tomato Firmware or Tomato Mods?
     
  8. Toastman

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    Hmm. I actually spent the best part of 2 days reading through the forums. There's simply not enough information to make any table or even draw any real conclusions. Most people who commented on throughput did not list what version of Tomato they were using or how their router was set up (i.e. No overheads due to QOS, encryption, etc). Almost no two posts agreed on what the throughput was for a given router or firmware. Several people even give figures that show got better throughput on the WRT54GL than on the ASUS RT-N16. I've given it up as a bad idea!

    Larix - read the various comments in the TomatoUSB threads. It isn't as simple as it appears, but it's happening.

    Vic, while I am waiting with anticipation for your new RAF versions, I was wondering if you could give me some piece of mind: Are you removing any features to make room for others? I hope this is not the case... I love RAF because it has GUI overclocking, SpeedMod, TCP Vegas, IP/MAC limiter etc.. I hope all your great features stay, with only new ones added :)

    What routers have MIPSR2? Is RT-N16 the only one? I have WRT54GL and I'm guessing it's not MIPSR2, right?
     
  14. wasp87

    wasp87 Network Guru Member

    WRT54GL = MIPSR1, you'll have to wait a little longer for a release.

    So far, so good!

    I have 3 RT-N16s in two locations, running 1.28.8550RAF on one of them, uptime 18hrs, 30min. I can report superb performance!

    Running samba, ftp, qos, various scripts. Love the new changes (web usage, toastman's qos labels, etc...)!

    Looking to try out this new firmware from Victek. I'm currently running Build 49 of TomatoUSB and I have a Netgear WNR3500L. From the previous posts in this thread it looks like 3 people have bricked this exact router when performing the upgrade. Has anyone besides Victek successfully flashed 1.28.8550RAF onto a WNR3500L?

    3500L Error is "File is too big to fit in MTD"

    Hi all,

    Just reporting in..I have the same behaviour for my Netgear 3500L:

    Error is "File is too big to fit in MTD"

    Any ideas on how to upgrade to Viktek's 1.28 firmware sucesfully?

    If it helps, I'm trying to upgrade from Teddy Bear's Beta 19?

    Would love to try this firmware out and would really like to know more about the Captive Portal feature if anyone has any ideas?

    Thanks to Teddy Bear/Viktek for their hard work on these firmwares :)

    With this new release from Victek for the Asus N-16. Is it safe to say this is the first official release that is not in "beta" form?
     
  28. Dashiell

    Dashiell Network Guru Member

    I can say it certainly "feels" that way. I have thrown everything I could at it and it keeps on ticking! Victek's builds, for me, have always been trouble-free.

    I don't see any captive portal utils on the RT-N16 version, though... unless it's not in the gui (?).
     
  29. FattysGoneWild

    FattysGoneWild LI Guru Member

    I only asked because I see no mention of "beta" in the release. So I just assume this is in fact an "official release".
     
  30. Rafatk

    Rafatk Network Guru Member

    Flashed today on my RT-N16, so far, so good!

    Only bug I found is if you disable WEB USAGE and access it thru the left menu it will give you a endless warning.

    Thanks Victek great firmware!

    any projection as to when we might expect v1.28 for non MIPSR2 routers?

    Victek also please let us know if we have to do a NVRAM erase or if we can do an inplace upgrade aswell from your previous 1.25.
     
  44. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    Since kernel, new iptables, new nvram variables, complete new structure .. I would say no ... but YES, you have to perform a nvram erase using the option available in upgrade function (upgrade and erase nvram).

    Hey Vic, by "next" weekend, did you mean the weekend following that post? If so, it's now passed :D. I apologize if you meant the weekend of Sept 18-19...
     
  46. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    No, I said last weekend, apologize for delay but I think will deserve a good surprise for the coders since I'm quoting and 'comment' each change in the source code as I had to do from the beginning ... I know it's not important for the user but helpful for the project.

    Hi,

    I've been getting these assertions in the log file of a WRT54GL router I've setup running 1.25.8515 .2RAF ND
    Code:
    Sep 14 15:15:34 unknown user.warn kernel: KERNEL: assertion (newsk->state != TCP_SYN_RECV) failed at tcp.c(2227)
    Sep 14 15:15:34 unknown user.warn kernel: KERNEL: assertion ((1<<sk2->state)&(TCPF_ESTABLISHED|TCPF_CLOSE_WAIT|TCPF_CLOSE)) failed at af_inet.c(689)
    I've googled and found articles going back to 2003. Is anyone else experiencing these?

    Thanks, Badders

    A question for the other folks who have flashed their RT-N16 with Victek's mod. Has anybody noticed that after flashing, when you try to do a nvram thorough erase, the router just takes a very very long time to complete this process. I started the process almost 15 minutes back and it is still going. Also, any changes that you make and then you hit save, they also take almost the same amount of time.

    Any ideas on what's going on?

    I just flashed my RT-N16 with tomato-K26USB-1.28.8550MIPSR2Victek-Ext.trx and see this behavior.

    It also looks like the Web Usage option also has some javascript alert.
     
  53. TexasFlood

    TexasFlood Network Guru Member

    The Web Usage issue has been reported and is a known problem with the current binary although I believe it has already been fixed in the source. When I loaded Victeks build on my RT-N16 and did a thorough nvram reset, it was pretty quick, no problem there, for me anyway.
     
  54. Toastman

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    Same here - no problems. Did the NVRAM erase complete? Might be corrupted NVRAM. The webmon page and the page save problem with IP/MAC and the CPU frequency also fixed.
     
  55. thalaivar

    thalaivar Networkin' Nut Member

    TexasFlood/Toastman,

    If the nvram is corrupted, is there a way to fix it, like reflashing the firmware again or doing something else. I don't want to brick the router by trying to reinstall the same firmware. Also, would doing a 30/30/30 reset cause the nvram to be cleaned up?
     
  56. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    Simple solution, open a second instance in your web browser, open router page and go to administration/logging, enable web monitor and then save. The warning should be gone.

    Reagrds!

  66. Badders44

    Badders44 LI Guru Member

    Do we know what has changed in these releases?

    Generally, I find it confusing. There are lots of good Tomato firmwares being produced by a few developers but not much in the way of documentation or changelog to say what's new or what's been fixed in each release. It's a little like the Brainslayer and Eko mods in dd-wrt.

    Unless I'm missing something...

    luckman212 LI Guru Member

    I updated to 8901 and rebooted a few times, enabled & disabled JFFS and somehow it started working again. :)

    this build is working well on RT-N16.
    the only strange thing I noticed, is a new 2-3 seconds "lag" or delay when logging in via SSH or SCP. Not a big deal but not sure what is causing this.

    edit: I figured out at least my SSH delay issue. my client was trying to connect with various Key Exchange methods. Apparently only "diffie-hellman" method is supported. Once I disabled the others, login is again fast.

    what do you mean if multiple access? you mean if I log in >1 time via ssh? no I am only logged in once..... maybe 1 dropbear "master" process exists and then 1 additional for each logged in session? that would make sense....

    I'm interested in upgrading my DD-WRT to Tomato RAF 1.28.8520 ND + USB, since from what i'm reading it works with my ASUS WL-520gu.
    Is it possible to install transmission on it and use external hard drive?
    Any tips how to migrate from dd-wrt to this tomato?

    Victek, any plans about MIPSR1 2.4 updates?
     
  81. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    Yes, will update too, due to Tomato-RAF branch updates for 2.6 are quicker since I have a MIPSR2 router, it's the only reason..

    Hi Victek,

    Are you planning to updating the simulator to reflect the current Tomato-RAF built? It looks like a lot has changed since the last simulator was created. The simulator is a good way to appreciate all your hard work. Thanks.

    Will do too ... hard to mantain all when I'm doing changes every week and at least I try to edit a changelog for each release .. I hope you understand :J. Few minutes ago I did a new build... what do you like first?

    I just got my new e3000, and am having trouble upgrading to Victek tomato from the stock firmware. I was able to upgrade from the September Cisco fw to the December release, but I've tried 8901 and 8902 today and they both die at 16% during the upgrade. Any ideas?

    I had the same issue, here's how I solved it:

    download the MIPSR2 build of the "standard" TomatoUSB (from here) and flash the .bin file first. Then, reset all to defaults and go ahead and flash the .trx of TomatoRAF. I did this yesterday and was able to flash 8901 successfully.

    :) P.S.- Victek thanks for all your amazing hard work!! :)

    Thanks from me too. I've been trying to get enough money ahead to buy 2 E3000's for my home WDS setup, yes I need 2. For now though keeping my WRTG-54TM and WRTGL up to date is a great gift. Thanks.....

    I'm trying to build a Victek Raf build w/ K26 IPV6 and CIFS that fits on my WRT160N V1 (4mb). I used the source code available on git://repo.or.cz/tomato.git in RAF-Base. Is this the latest code?

    I did the following.

    -Setup git and a build environment on centos.
    -Modified i: in Makefile to not disable cifs.
    -Compiled with the following parameters 'make V1="20110311" V2="-Mini+CIFS+IPV6" i'
    -squashfs_fs.h needed to be edited for mksquashfs to compile. Linux/Magic.h does not exist on kernel <2.6.19.

    I'm hesitant to flash the result as I don't really know what I am doing here, thoughts? Is there any reason this mini ipv6 enabled build is not distributed? Also can I disable JFFS entirely to make the build smaller? I have no use for it.

    The end result was:
    # Create generic BIN/TRX images

    Creating TRX: image/tomato-K26-1.28.20110311MIPSR1-beta-Mini+CIFS+IPV6-MiniIPv6.trx

    just loaded 'RAF1.28.8500 MIPSR2_RAF E3000 USB VPN', from 'E3000USB-1.28.8691'.
    Thank you Victek!! This upgraded version seems so much quicker compared to .8691

    Hi, Just flashed Tomato RAF 1.28.8602 I could not find the Christmas edition. everything works great but cannot find the overclock tab. I included a screen shot of where I think the overclock list used to be, should I flash to something else? I cleared NVRAM and started from scratch. Any help appreciated Thank you:wall:

    Victek has removed OC function. You can overclock using ssh.

    vicktec, I've just upgraded to your mod from tomato 1.27. I have a MIPSR1 devide (buffalo) and the exact version of the firmware installed is: Tomato RAF 1.28.8525 ND + VPN. Standard version for WRT54GL and non USB routers WITH VPN.

    Everything's fine but, as I've set the button config to toggle wireless, despite this works (as before) the wlan led is not turned on/off accordingly. Is this a little bug?

    Nothing major but I liked as it was before...

    Regards
