    Hi all. I've just started using Tomato last week (v1.28.1816).

    I can't get the time to show-up. I figure it is how I set up the WRT54GL1.1. I've read the FAQ at Polarcloud, Install Guide (wiki), and read a bunch of FAQ in this forum. But I haven't figured out the problem yet. I'm a newbie to this and apologize if this is a stupid question.

    My network:
    DSL modem connected to a Linux server (
    I have two network segments. 192.168.1.x is wired ethernet. The other uses the Tomato to provide wifi access only. Tomato has static IP I've tried gateway and router mode and neither works to get Tomato to use ntp or have the correct time. I can connect to the server, and internet through wifi. So I'm not sure why the time isn't being set.

    More details are included in the attached diagram.

    I suspect I have to do something with the routing but have no idea where to start. This is what I have in the routing table.
    Could you give me some guidance? Thanks in advance.

    I assume your linux box has two IP addresses and, since that's the only way your diagram makes even a little bit of sense.

    On the tomato, the WAN type is "disabled", and the gateway will be Don't plug anything into the WAN/Internet port on the linksys; use the regular LAN ports for the wired uplink.

    Yes. The server has both IP addresses. & And WAN is disabled.
    Sorry for not putting it there.

    I changed the gateway to and it works!

    Thanks so much!
