    Currently using Victek's "Tomato Firmware RAF1.28.8672 MIPSR2_RAF E3000 USB VPN" on my E3000... all good generally except having a bunch of problems with Apple wifi devices (MacBook, iPhone) losing connectivity.
    After a while they remain "connected" but no data actually flows. I seem to remember some threads on this but can't find them now.

    Any ideas?

    I'm using Tomato Firmware RAF1.28.8691 MIPSR2_RAF E3000 USB Ext for weeks now on my E3000 and noting but mac devices in the house (MB, Iphones, etc)

    and all runs smooth
    and I didn't tweak much, almost standard setup except a few forwards. Maybe share what you have tweaked.

    Hmmm... RAF1.28.8691 should be same as RAF1.28.8672, just without the VPN I think. Wondering whether to try one of Toastman's newer builds....

    did you clear nvram after flash tomato?

    Yes. Was a new E3000, flashed with Victek build, erased NVRAM, then set up from scratch...

    There is no difference in Toastman builds, he copy all contents of tomatousb and RAF into one build adding some rules for QoS ... differences in tomato RAF are related with kernel, ftpget, ftpput, IMQ and other modules. So, might be better to try original tomatousb to check it. I suggest you to use a fixed channel instead of Auto channel for wireless devices, it's one of the issues I found with similar post from other people using iPhone..

    am using fixed channel indeed on wireless, no encryption but mac address filtering.

    An old apple issue was Ack so try disabling it (advanced > wireless > no ack enabled).

    Already like that.

    Re: Toastman builds, I know his are based on TomatoUSB etc, it was just that he seems to have some newer builds based on later git repository changes, so thought maybe it might contain fixes to some issues. But I guess that's a long shot.

    I can't really say my problem is Apple-specific, as all my machines are Apple, just that there are no problems on wired connections, and I never had these wireless problems with my Asus WL-500GPv2.

    I've tried with both fixed channel and Auto channel, same thing.
