I don't know why, but Tomato seems to have problems reconnecting after a disconnect. Thibor15c doesn't have this problem, so I've gone back to it. My ISP is Qwest, I am using an Actiontec 1524 modem (in bridge mode). My IP address is dynamic, assigned by Qwest from a large pool of IP addresses. When the router connects (PPPoE), it usually keeps the same IP address for a week or more (even several weeks). Every now and then the connection is lost and the router has to reconnect. When this happens with Tomato, it just says 'reconnecting', but never actually reconnects (until I power cycle both the modem and router). Thibor15c doesn't have this problem. The only way I know that Thibor15c had to reconnect is to log into the modem and see that the 'connection uptime' has been restarted. When Thibor15c reconnects like this is always seems to get a different IP address from the previous one. But if I disconnect manually and let it reconnect I always get the same IP address unless I leave the connection down for a while (10 minutes or more).
