    Hi Tomatoers!

    Just a minor but (for me) annoying issue.
    After upgrading(!) my Linksys WRT54GL with Tomato 1.25, the SES button is not lit anymore. Previously (out of the cardboard box with the default firmware) it could shine Orange or White, but now it is dead.

    Can anyone tell me how to activate the thing again?
    The www did not give me sufficient clues for this.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Best regards, Ivo.

    I found this in the linksys user manual. It is only used if you use the 1 touch feature.

    SecureEasySetup (Orange/White) The Cisco
    logo is the Router’s SecureEasySetup button. It
    lights up and will stay orange when the Router
    is powered on. The color orange indicates that
    the Router is not using the SecureEasySetup
    feature, while the color white indicates that the
    Router is using the SecureEasySetup feature.
    When the Router enters SecureEasySetup
    mode, the Cisco logo will turn white and
    start flashing. After the Router has generated
    the SSID and WPA Personal key, the Cisco
    logo will stop flashing and stay white.
    To clear the SSID and WPA Personal key, press
    and hold down the Cisco logo for five seconds.
    The Cisco logo will flash slowly as the Router
    resets itself. The Cisco logo will turn orange to
    indicate a successful reset.

    NOTE: SecureEasySetup is a feature that makes
    it easy to set up your wireless network. If you
    have SecureEasySetup devices, run the Router’s
    Setup Wizard CD-ROM and follow the onscreen
    instructions to use SecureEasySetup.

    I know this does not answer the question. But, I am sure some one else will. Just wanted to point that out if you are using custom security settings instead of the 1 touch feature.

    Hi Madsul,

    Yes, I found that thread before I posted my question.
    But if it is not going to be better than that, I leave it the way it is.
    As I said, it's mostly for the looks, not for added functionality.

    I found this for ya as well on the official Tomato site in the change log for latest version. Seems straight forward and simple if you are interested. You might have to reboot the router for it to take effect. Not sure myself what the last command is for light wise. But, the other 2 are pretty obvious.

    Startup LED options removed from GUI. You can still enable LEDs at startup by adding any of the following lines in Admin:Scripts:Init:
    led amber on
    led white on
    led aoss on

    Telnet into your router, and


    led white on
    led amber on
    led aoss on.

    Or from your router's page,

    navigae to System tab and enter

    led white on
    led amber on
    led aoss on.


    led white off
    led amber off
    led aoss off.

    to turn them off.

    I still don't know what led aoss does though... anyone?

    Thanks for all your hints!
    You can even put both leds to on at the same time, which is a funny look :)))

    I have put this in cron now.....

    # cru l
    0 * * * * logger -p -- -- MARK -- #syslogdmark#
    22 22,2,6,10,14,18 * * * ntpsync --cron #ntpsync#
    00 0,2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20,22 * * * led amber on #AmberOn#
    00 0,2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20,22 * * * led white off #WhiteOff#
    00 1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15,17,19,21,23 * * * led white on #WhiteOn#
    00 1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15,17,19,21,23 * * * led amber off #AmberOff#

    I found this about AOSS
