    I recently rolled back from the victek firmware to the 1.25 normal firmware for the tomato routers and i've been noticing some stability issues and complaints from various users on the network on the inability to connect and the inability to hold a signal.

    as it stands, we are a 29 person household that up until a couple of days ago, was running 3 wireless access points using tomato, until one of them decided to crap out. So we're down to 2 now, the other day, after I rolled back from the victek firmware, I started noticing that although the internet was connected and available from a wireless connection that it would say "Renewing...' on the router, although that's not a major issue of any sort.

    It's been spotty on and off for quite some time, so if you have any tweaks or anything that you'd recommend doing, I'd love to hear them, I currently have QoS enabled so as to cut down on bit torrent traffic and I have TCP Vegas enabled as well.

    I'm just tired of dealing with user complaints among other things, so please help me, i'll provide you whatever details I can get my hands on.

    Have you problems started only after you rolled back from Victec' to standard Tomato, or did you roll it back in an attempt to troubleshoot problems?

    After you rolled back, did you do a full NVRAM clear and manually re-configure the unit?

    I did a full nvram clear and used the previous settings that I had on there for months prior.

    One of the three routers that we used recently deciding to stop routing as it were, so I decided to upgrade it to victek in hopes that it would solve the problem, cleared the nvram and it just continued to cause mass amounts of confusion.

    So I upgraded one of the routers with victek as well because I wanted the ability to control the bandwidth use of users who bit torrent quite frequently, and I kept one of the other routers are a regular tomato 1.25 because I was having connection problems with victek and my comcast modem.

    Have you ever monitored the log?
    Have you monitored your connection count?
    Have you ascertained whether your PPPoE sessions terminate?

    No, yes, and No.

    How would I go about finding the log?

    And how would I go about ascertaining whether my sessions terminate?

    Status/Logs. You'll see the terminations from the pppoe process in the logs. They will look something like this:
