Static Internet IP won't route

Discussion in 'Tomato Firmware' started by greyhavens49420, Oct 21, 2009.

  1. I have a WRT54GS v.2 that I just flashed to Tomato. I have a static IP from my cable internet provider and I have input the correct settings inside of Basic -->Network (see attached screenshots). When I use the ping feature inside of the router I am able to ping google.com but I cannot ping google.com from my computer nor access the internet obviously. I'm sure it's just a setting somewhere but I don't know that it is. Yes I have tried restarting both my router and my cable modem and yes, I am 100% sure that my settings are correct.

    My only thought is that my DNS settings should be separate for my WAN then for my LAN? I'm a total newb at this but the only difference that I see between the settings that I had on the stock Linksys firmware and Tomato is that Linksys had a place to put the DNS for my ISP vs. Tomato I have to put it under LAN.

    Thanks in advance!

    Can you ping the tomato router from your PC?
    Can you ping an ip from your PC, such as
    ping (one of google's IPs)

    Often "strange" problems after updating can be fixed by restoring default settings and reentering all your settings (NOT restore from a backup). Strange as it may seem, flashing the router with new firmware does not erase existing settings.

    To restore all default settings by going to Administration->Configuration and picking "Erase all data in NVRAM (thourgh)". Then reenter your settings.

    Totally agree about the nvram reset to clear up weird problems, should be troubleshooting step 1 in my book. Are your client computers set the same way as they were before? Are they set to dhcp (obtain IP and DNS addresses automatically)? Also are all the wireless settings correct, or maybe haven't even made it that far?
