    What version to use?

    Downloads: http://www.4shared.com/dir/v1BuINP3/Toastman_Builds.html

    When you get to 4shared:
    • First - decide what branch you want. This depends on your router.
    • If it's for the older MIPSR1 routers like WRT54 series, choose "ND"
    • If it's for newer MIPSR2 routers like RT-N16, WNR3500L, Linksys "E" series, then choose "RT"
    • If it's for a very recent dual-band MIPSR2 router (E4200 etc) you may need "RT-N" to get support for the 5GHz radio. You can still use the RT version if you don't need the 5GHz radio to work and it may be a better choice for some.
    Once inside the correct folder, you will have another choice to make:
    • If your needs are simple, and you don't intend to set up a VLAN, then select "RT"
    • If you need the easy setup VLAN GUI, then choose the folder marked "VLAN-RT"
    Now you'll see a list of builds:
    • Mini - no USB, no CIFS, no Zebra
    • MiniIPV6 - no USB, no CIFS, no Zebra + IPv6
    • Std - normal build
    • Ext - normal + Extra utilities + NTFS
    • VPN - normal + Extras + NTFS + VPN
    • VPN-NOCAT - normal + Extras + NTFS + VPN + NOCAT portal
    If your router needs USB support, chose a version with "USB" in the title.
    There are "tailed" versions for named routers that have special needs.
    There's also a "generic" version for routers with 60K nvram.


    EDIT:

    REPEAT: IT IS SLIGHTLY USEFUL TO READ THE "README" FILE.​

    JUST EVER SO SLIGHTLY :D (Hint) ....​

    Don't want to appear unfriendly, but I would like to remind people that most of the answers to your questions are already there if you just LOOK :mad:

    Any fixes that are published are automatically used. Which ones are you referring to? I don't see any new fixes, only HFS + MAC O/S support. If you mean those, maybe later.

    Now, the link you refer to with the media server - what is this "bug" and how many people are experiencing it? Is there only one? Is everyone repeating the reposted posts of the original reposted posters posts? ( I think you know what I am getting at!)

    Because it doesn't happen here. I have been using a test router to supply music and video to a restaurant sound system and wall TV for months. It is online 24/7 and has been stable. After upgrading to 7476 it is no different. Tested on E3000 and RT-N16. Having said that, it's pretty crap compared to a real NAS. It's a router !

    On the other hand, if you mean the famed PS/3 bug, this is basically because the PS/3 is a pile of poo and doesn't comply with the standard. Nothing to do with Tomato, but perhaps the MiniDNLA people will fix it one day.

    The way we deal with "bugs" is probably much the same between modders. If someone reports a bug we try to duplicate it. If we can't and there are no other instances, there's nothing much to do. In almost every case, the "bug" is something to do with an individual user's setup or something unusual he's doing. Unfortunately, there are many users that have difficulty in setting up anything more complicated than a kettle, and despite their well-meaning reports, we have to ignore them until someone else confirms the problem.

    For example, I accidentally posted a duplicate of 7474 with a different number and compile time. It was otherwise exactly the same as before. Yet several people immediately reported weird bugs with the "new" version.

    At the other extreme, when Rhester72 added TCP Vegas to Tomato, dozens of people swore that their router was the next best thing to Sliced Bread. But in fact the algorithm isn't even used by packets passing through the router.

    They look normal, different themes, though. Although they show bigger here. The text on your png's seems to be as large as the top banner. This is what Brownlight should look like:

    I mean the descriptions of the radioboxes are below them, not next to them.
    Just looked odd to me, no biggie though. :)
     
  10. Toastman

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    Ah, I see what you mean. Actually, I see this has appeared and disappeared in many different versions, the older ones esp. Enlightened themes were quite commonly aligned on a different line, so I thought nothing of it. Curious though. I'll look into it!

    EDIT - as I thought, the position changes according to the design of the theme in use. Change between Tomato theme and Enlightened, and you see it clearly.

    toastman is there any screenshots of what your firmware looks like ?

    I tried to google but couldn't find anything,

    screenshots

    http://victek.is-a-geek.com/tomato/scsht/

    Suppose you should describe what you would like to see.
    See above link to the screenshots from Viktek's site.
    Toastman's just a bit different ("Tomato" maybe more ripe;o or just another sort ;o).
     
  13. Toastman

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    I don't really see much point in screenshots, and it's very easy to try a new version of software in 2 minutes by flashing it, so that's what I would recommend, and that's what I do myself. Remember, unless someone keeps updating them, the posted screens, like the online wikis, will quickly become out of date and will just end up misleading people.

    EDIT - I have posted some screens in Nov 2011 to show some new features, look here:

    Better use the Tomato Simulator (Virtual Tomato GUI), I host it, see my signature.
     
  18. Moogle Stiltzkin

    Moogle Stiltzkin Networkin' Nut Member

    Well i'm already using Victek's firmware which works fine, except for the cifs mounting not showing that it is mounted, although it seems to work.

    So i was wondering how exactly toastman's looked like, and what the options were.

    Yeah you could install it, but then all my settings would be screwed up doing so :sad:

    A simulator for different tomato firmware variants would be nice :dog:
     
  19. Toastman

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    ?? Save your settings, flash the new one, look at it, don't like it, reflash... what on earth's the problem? Just looking at it won't screw up your settings.
     
  20. TexasFlood

    TexasFlood Network Guru Member

    Yup, it's no sweat to fall back to your previous settings if you back up your config first. If it's the ability to fall forward if you like Toastman then use Toastmans alternative technique for backing up and restoring settings which isn't as tied to a certain router or firmware build.

    What version do you use?

    Due to frequent changes for each release it's hard to do it, tomato is free. As suggested you can try other versions, compare and use the best for your goal.

    step1: created backup of my tomato victek raf config

    step2: downloaded this firmware
    tomato-E4200USB-NVRAM60K-1.28.7477.1MIPSR2-Toastman-RT-Beta-VPN


    step3: upgrade firmware, with the nvram to be deleted after updating


    at this point, i couldn't access the router, even after pressing the factory reset at the back. I also tried to restart pc, and clear browser cache, but nothing worked.


    at this point i got fed up and wanted to go back Victek's firmware, but ops i can't seeing as i can't access the router !!!

    *panic mode*



    Anyways i had a laptop and usb drive handy.


    So i connected the router to the laptop, and i could access the router on 192.168.1.1 using the default admin admin


    Ok so there is still hope yet.


    Then i loaded back my tomato raf configuration file, reboot the router.


    Now the router is showing back Victek's RAF firmware gui.


    But in the about it says i am using Toastman's firmware. So which is it ??? :doh:



    I hope this answers your question why i would prefer screenshots or a demo to browse/check it out before i commit :sad:
     
  24. Toink

    Toink Network Guru Member

    You're not supposed to use your backup from Victek's firmware to Toastman's. You WILL DEFINITELY have issues :doh: - Otherwise clearing NVRAM is moot and useless....

    I believe I warned you about Toastman's builds where DHCP IS disabled by default I was explicit in my warning....

    Toast was very clear when he said you can check other builds. Try it out, and you can always revert back to your previous firmware build by backing up your settings for that. And when you grew tired of the firmware you are testing you can always revert back to the old buid and simply upload the back up settings you saved:

    Ex. 1. Victeks build
    2. Back up settings in Vic's specific build.
    3. Try Toast's build.
    4. Revert back to Vic's specific build (same as your back up setting's build)
    5. load your saved settings...


    Now if you want to try out your settings in Vic's build TO Toastman's build (or any other build) you can try THIS METHOD without the risk of any issues...

    Are you guys setting your PC with a static IP, set the gateway to the router's IP before you flash?

    Seems to me that many people are causing problems for themselves by not following the recommended flash procedure. Almost all router manufacturers will tell you to set a fixed (static) IP on your PC before you start. If you flash while using DHCP assigned IP address that will often cause you great problems accessing the router after it reboots. Would you try to get money from your account without knowing your own name or what the name of the bank was?

    Always clear your browser's cache if you have any funny occurrences.

    flash to toastman

    Ye-e. I can confirm I also ate my piece of (panic).
    Moreover we had to leave with my lady to vacations for week somewhere to Greece, and I flashed router, stupid, because was so curious....
    Router did not start. My son would be extremely disappointed because nobody takes care on this sort of things at my home.
    But I was patient and after switch off my fiber and several resets it restarted. It took 20 minutes smth like that.
    I loaded back Viktek's config then and now it works as before.
    It is not proper way, I know, but what is correct one, then?
    Here should be some correct sequence of actions to be sure or some scurity triggers.
    Router e3000, fiber cable 300mb/s, w7 ultimate...
     
  27. Moogle Stiltzkin

    Well right now i reckon it is indeed using toastman's firmware.

    That gui thingy, i easily managed to change it to the one toastman was using.



    Hm.... i don't see any bugs when i loaded victek's configuration for Toastman's firmware.

    The change in template gave me a scare till i realize there was actually a selection for that.


    Hm..... so should i stick with it as is, or should i be going to victek's and reload the config.


    Because Toink's saying you shouldn't do that, however i don't see any bugs cropping up (that i am aware of anyway o.o:). The only major settings i did was port forward and QOS, but they seem intact hm ..... so should i or should not worry ?




    Anyway, doesn't seem to be that big a different in features, although the about page does point out what exactly toastman's firmware provided. Some features that and this author etc.

    The only feature that could be useful is teddys usb feature. I wonder if i could plug in a usb stick to store my bandwidth log files instead of cifs to my QNAP ... hm....

    Seems stable hm ..... i don't see any issues atm.





    @Toastman

    Well by default this linksys E4200 uses 192.168.1.1

    But by own manual configuration, i am using 192.168.0.1 for the admin page, and a different ip range set for my lan devices e.g. 192.168.0.190-192.168.0.200


    obviously when the router reset, it's gonna be using 192.168.1.1 which is the default. So i tried that, didn't work.



    Anyways, it only managed to work again after i loaded my original victek config file into toastman's firmware. Because even before i did that, it just wouldn't work after factory reset by holding the reset button for 30/30/30 seconds power on/off/on ...

    Hopefully my input helped.


    @valerima

    You and me both. Fright of my life @_@:


    thx Toink , texas, toast,victek others for info and help.

    I'll slowly digest this information.

    toastman+ Viktek's mixture

    Up to now I seen nothing to complain from this mixture. The only squeaking is coming from my kid who is referring that now speed of wireless connection decreased and he downloads torrents on 3mb/s max instead of 10mb/s ... when we were on pure Viktek.

    Trying your firmware for the first time and liking it so far. However, I was wondering about the Asus RT-N16 clock speed. I always hear how it should be, by default, set at 480Mhz.

    but with your firmware, it states 133Mhz. Is this correct? This is after NVRAM clear, etc upgrade from TomatoUSB

    [​IMG]



    Thanks

    Go to Advanced-> Miscellaneous and select from the drop-down menu. Save and reboot your router

  33. reimer

    reimer Networkin' Nut Member

    Thanks. I knew I could do this but I was a little confused because it was set at "Default". I assumed the correct clock speed should have been set.

    Oh well. It had been set at 133Mhz for a few weeks and I barely noticed :redface:

    Is there a discription of all your builds somewhere toast?

    Also, I don't seem to be able to get 5ghz wireless

    The Asus RT-N16 only operates on the 2.4GHZ spectrum.

    Oh lameness, didn't realise that. Thanks
     
  37. mejobloggs

    mejobloggs Addicted to LI Member

    Mine's set to default too. It started at 480mhz but I just noticed it's 133mhz today. Does Tomato automatically scale CPU power to usage? E.g if it's only dealing with 1 or 2 computers it might run at 133mhz cause that's all it needs?
     
  38. mejobloggs

    mejobloggs Addicted to LI Member

    Ok I can't seem to edit messages anymore

    Adding to my above post, if it doesn't automatically scale cpu power then I think there's a bug. I made it a point to note 480mhz when I reflashed recently, and it has definitely dropped from 480 to 133
     
  39. Toastman

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    Since you have no nvram setting at present, it has reverted to some hardware default of 133. If you want it to run at 480, set it to 480.

    Hello,

    i use Tomato Firmware v1.28.2453 MIPSR2-Toastman K26 USB VPN-BT and there is a small problem with ipv6 tunnel 6to4.
    I setup my ipv6 tunnel and everything work well.
    But, as soon as i reboot my RT-N16 the six0 tunnel disepear and the web interface can't recreate any tunnel.
    The only way i have to setup my tunnel again is to put my config in the init interface or through ssh.

    I am still running Tomato Firmware v1.28.7433 MIPSR2-Toastman K26 Std, and looking to upgrade to the latest build.

    I have an Asus RT-N12.

    Looks like the current firmware for this is: tomato-K26-1.28.7475.5MIPSR2-Toastman-RT-Std

    Looks like there been many updates since v7433...

    @Strike

    make sure you set a static IP to your computer (where you will flash) BEFORE you flash, because Toast's new builds have the DHCP set to disabled by default. Goodluck!

    Guys, due to some strange things that have happened to some people using builds containing the vlan-gui, I have decide to make this available in a separate version beginning with 4400. Look out for it soon, there's a small problem at the moment with wireless.

    For normal useage, since there's actually nothing new, the 7475 series has been brought right up to date.

    So the latest "normal" release, without vlan-GUI, will be 7475.5
     
  47. JTD121

    JTD121 Networkin' Nut Member

    I must be losing my mind. Looking for the 7475(.5) builds, I don't see any build numbers close to 7475 in the MIPS32R1 2.4 folders. Lowest I can see is Toastman 1.28.7303 ND based on Fedor USBmod driver 4.150.10.29.....

    Am I looking in the wrong place, are the version numbers reversed (and is really 7674?)

    -Josh

    EDIT: Oh wait, I see them, in the MIPS32R2 2.6 kernel folder....nevermind...I have an old 54G running on the MIPS32R1 2.4 series.....

    DLNA updated to 1.0.21
    HFS/HFS+ Mac OS x read support by Victek
    SNMP integrated by Shibby

    Toastman-VLAN-BETA-1.28.4402 also includes VLAN-GUI by Teaman
    (fully up to date with latest improvements).

    New filters added to qos-ctrate & detailed pages (Nice work by Teaman)
    + cosmetics changes to many pages. This makes these pages extremely
    useful for monitoring purposes.

    Pages which may be used for realtime monitoring now have
    the ability to "hide" much of the extra setup entry boxes, leaving
    the page clearer for the lists.

    Running 1.28.7821 MIPSR1-Toastman-ND K26 MiniIPv6 on a WRT54GL.

    Hit three issues, all regarding IPv6 (6in4, set the routed prefix, tunnel remote endpoint, and tunnel client ipv6 address, leaving everything else at default):

    1. The "Router IPv6 Address" being set to "Default" used a bad value (it took my prefix::1, which is the IPv6 address the other end of the tunnel wanted). Fixed this by setting it manually to my prefix::3. Don't know if there's a sane way to make the "default" a little more intelligent.
    2. The routing for my prefix was incorrect; there were two generated both bad: one for my prefix via ::, and one for my prefix via the tunnel device. My prefix should be routed via br0, and *not* back out to the Internet (where they'd at worst be routed *back* to me). I manually removed the first two routes, and added the third route (my prefix via br0). This allowed me to ping out to IPv6 global addresses, and have my machines pinged back.
    3. Started doing lockdown on all my new IPv6-connected machines, and noticed that httpd on the Toastman firmware was bound to the global IPv6 address. Looked at the firewall rules, and noted that there was no rule blocking access to httpd on port 80 via IPv6. Added one manually, after verifying that the original configuration did indeed respond to requests via IPv6.


    Thanks for the hard work,

    Toastman....you have probably been asked this many times by now, so I apologize in advance, but are there plans to deploy Tomato firmware with the 5 ghz wireless working on the E4200? I use 5ghz exclusively and am stuck with stock firmware for my day to day E4200. I purchased another new E4200 and have been flashing yours and Victek's builds to it as they come out. I put it up in place of the regular E4200 to test it out and then put the other router back online when my wife and I are working. 2.4 ghz I keep running for when the kids come home, but that band is congested here. I also have an E3000 available which was last year's router and that runs Tomato with both bands working. It is just a standby now as I have 450 mb wireless card capability in the computers now.

    There are many people wanting this. Integration of the new wireless driver isn't simply a matter of changing one for the other. There are other issues involved which impact many of the features in Tomato. Teddy Bear was the best at doing this, having gone thought this many times and probably having a huge pile of notes by now to help. But now he's not around, there is a serious lack of people with the necessary ability to make fundamental changes to Tomato (I'm not one of them) and some of them also seem to have vanished into space. Nevertheless, I'm sure there are several people looking at this problem, but whether it will happen or not, and when, I have no idea. I rather doubt anyone will announce anything until it's ready, because of the pressure from posters on the forums.

    Thanks for the response Toastman....I understand the situation now. This issue notwithstanding, I appreciate your talent and work on this fine firmware. I will continue along with the stock firmware, which is performing OK with port forwarding, DDNS, and other features I employ. I do hope to see Tomato fully developed for the E4200, but I understand hope is not a method, as they say.

    I feel really stupid, but have been reading alot of the threads and don't have a clue what most of it means. I have read much of what you said about raising transmit power and really want to do that. To that end I bought a WRT54GL router and installed the Tomato firmware (ver. 1.28) and tried to change the power setting. Nothing happened so I searched the web and found that the country code seemed to be the problem. I don't understand how to change that. I only know how to access the firmware by typing 192.168.1.1 in my browswer. There appears to be no way to change it there.

    I am wondering if one of your newer versions take care of that problem. If so which one (my WRT54GL is ver1.1)? If there is one do I just download it and then use Admin/upgrade to upgrade it? I know I have to be connected by ethernet. Do I need to reset the router? When?

    I apologize for being so ignorant, but I haven't found any basic info out there that explains much of what you all talk about. If you can point me in the right direction I would gladly try to learn.

    Let me thank you in advance for any help you can give.

    Hey Toastman-

    Thanks for this great firmware!
    I'm running 1.28.7475.5 USB/VPN/NOCAT on an E3000 at the moment and wondered if I can just update to this new version and upload a saved config file or would you recommend doing a full reset and manually reconfigure?

    I'm running the original TomatoUSB release (1.28.9054). Is there a quick and easy way to update to your firmware on my Linksys E3000?

    Also, is IPv6 working on this firmware version? For some reason IPv4<->IPv6 conversion isn't working in the Tomato release I'm using. My ISP (Time Warner Cable) isn't handing out IPv6 addresses yet but I want to make sure that I'm ready for it when it comes.

    Hi, Toast! I just tried your BETA 2404.

    ***************************************************************
    August 11 2010
    Toastman-VLAN-MULTISSID-BETA-RT 1.28.2404
    Preliminary support for multi-SSID
    EXPERIMENTAL
    WARNING - DHCP IS DISABLED BY DEFAULT. DON'T FORGET
    TO TURN IT ON IF YOU NEED IT.
    ***************************************************************

    1. How/where to enable multi-SSID?
    2. Cannot save any MAC address in Wireless Filter... Is this a feature or a bug?
    3. After saving the Wireless Interference Mitigation from "none" to "Auto*", the drop-down menu reverts back to "none".

    Thanks! :)

    Aha! I thought the additional SSID feature is in the webGUI. Thank you, teaman!

    Will play around... Yup, wireless filter seems to be not working. I cannot enable and save any settings in there....
     
  64. Toastman

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    Toink, the "save" function and wireless mitigation save is busted here too :-(

    I checked the VLAN only version, it's OK, so maybe I busted something in the merge with the multi-SSID code. So be careful, it may mean that other functions including the multi-SSID itself are also suspect.

    Just found out what was wrong: there was a typo on the save() function in the wireless filter page (from that very first/experimental multiSSID commit - sorry about that). In any case: code fixed and pushed to git repo on branch VLAN-MultiSSID :)
    Also had a brief look onto that Advanced/Wireless page but... couldn't reproduce the problem here... so no idea what might be wrong with that one :confused:

    QoS/Transfer Rates page fixed for K24 builds + improvements for K26 builds

    QoS/Transfer Rates page working properly with K24 builds (qos-ctrate.asp).
    Memory allocation/handling code improved, additional sanity/safety checks for K26 builds
    A small/minor memory leak identified and fixed.

    August 8 2011 - 1.28.7625 MIPSR1 K24

    Toastman.....Wanted to try the improvements listed in TM 1.28.7480 K2.6 & 1.28.7625 K2.4, but I’ve convinced myself that my WRT610 v.2 requires the K2.6 builds – and that likely I need to use your 1.28.7816 – 1.28.7821 family. Based on their post dates, I think that they haven’t yet seen the expanded QoS classification rule improvement??

    Hi Toastman. I thought I'd try your 1.28.7625 2.4 R1 build for WRT54GL routers and I noticed that the device list won't show the device names anymore and it seems to break connections with iOS devices like the iPhone. Had to go back to Victek's stable release. Just thought I'd let you know and I'll probably try it again someday soon when you update it.
     
  71. mraneri

    mraneri LI Guru Member

    I am using the same build (the VPN NOUSB variety) without the issues you state. I see device names in the device list, and my three iOS devices iPod/iPad/iPhone are all working properly. I'm using a buffalo WHR-G54S.

    Hi all. I'm currently using dd-wrt, but fancy trying tomato. After a brief search, I've decided to try the toastman builds but I'm struggling to work out which version I should use. I have a WRT54GL and a wrt54GS. Can anyone point me a page that tells me that info? Thanks.

    R.
     
  74. Toink

    Toink Network Guru Member

    I'm currently using Toastman's 1.28.7625 MIPS32R1 Kernel for my WRT54GS v1.1, (tomato_NDUSB-128.76.25-Toastman-ND-Ext.trx), and WRT54GL, (tomato_NDUSB-128.76.25-Toastman-ND-std-NOCAT.trx).

    Just a reminder: SET A STATIC IP to your PC first and default the gateway to 192.168.1.1 BEFORE flashing to Toastman's Builds. DHCP is disabled by default in his builds.

    Goodluck!
     
  75. Robin Bowes

    Robin Bowes Networkin' Nut Member

    Thanks! I'll give that one a try.

    Are there any docs describing how to install it, or is it simply a case of uploading new firmware?

    192.168.1.1 is my main home net gateway so it sounds like I need to set the new unit up on a separate network (eg. with a laptop) before adding it to my main network.

    Thanks,

    R.
     
  76. Toink

    Toink Network Guru Member

    It's as easy as uploading the firmware from the webgui. No special instructions. Just make sure you CLEAR NVRAM before and after install, and setting a STATIC IP to your laptop/desktop (where you're flashing the router).

    You can enable DHCP in the firmware after flasing and tinker the settings, then revert your PC's IP to default.

    Goodluck! :)
     
  77. Robin Bowes

    Robin Bowes Networkin' Nut Member

    OK, cool.

    I've actually got a WRT54GL and a WRT54GS - which one would you say is "best" or are they both pretty much the same when running the same firmware? I see you have different firmware on your GL vs. your GL - is that necessary, or just choice?

    R.
     
  78. Toink

    Toink Network Guru Member

    My WRT54GS has 8mb that's why I got the ND-Ext.trx in there, which is more than 4mb in size. Since the GL can take less than 4mb of firmware I flashed it with the smaller size.. Although in older Toastman's builds, the ext.trx versions is what I use to install on both routers, because they were smaller in sizes. Due to some features added the firmware sizes became bigger... Both the WRT routers are actually back-up ones. Both functions solidly with Toastman's (or any Tomato builds). I'm using more of my E3000's, though. :)
     
  79. Trademark

    Trademark Network Guru Member

    Turn over the GS and look at the version number. Versions 1-3 have 8MB Flash and can take the tomato-NDUSB-1.28.7625-Toastman-ND-Ext build. If you have one of these, the extra ram (32MB vs 16MB) would also be beneficial and your "best" choice.

    GS Version 4 is pretty much identical to the GL and would use the tomato-ND-1.28.7625-Toastman-ND-Std build or a personal favorite of mine, 1.25.7515.2 (tomato-Toastman-7515.2-ND). Although slightly outdated it has a proven track record in my network. Very stable and fast on these little routers.

    Cheers!

    Gaius Networkin' Nut Member

    I reflashed the 7625 2.4 R1 build again, this time the VPN version as you indicated (NOUSB of course) and my issue still persists, even if I clear NVRAM before and after the flash just to be sure. Here is a screenshot. As you can see, device names do not show up. iOS devices still have a connection that drops frequently although PC clients work fine. I had to go back to the latest stable Victek build to make it work 100% again.

    You'll need to release/renew the IP on the device to get the name to show up. The name is determined as part of the DHCP process.

    QoS doesn't function properly on Toastman's firmware. I'm not sure if this is the forced inclusion of IMQ or what...

    EDIT: Ironically it just crashed on me... rolling back to Victek's.
     
  85. Toastman

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    Now hold on a moment!!

    QOS is the only reason I make these builds in the first place. I have many large sites with 100-200 users at each site, and all of them use QOS without which none of the sites would be able to use the internet. They don't crash. Some have been up for over a year.

    "Forced inclusion of IMQ?" What are you talking about? What has IMQ got to do with anything?

    There is clearly something seriously wrong with your setup. I am sympathetic, but please don't post silly comments like these because they do mislead other users.

    I have a E4200 and use Toastman's version of Tomato firmware. You can get different Toastman builds from the link in his signature or go to http://www.4shared.com/dir/v1BuINP3/Toastman_Builds.html.

    Firmware for the E4200 will have the name in the firmware description, ie "Tomato-E4200-NVRAM60K-1.28.7480MIPSR2-Toastman-RT-VPN".

    after flashing my WRT54GL with this .7625 fw the wifi address is showing up incorrectly (00:90:4C:5F:00:2A)
    even after the 30/30/30 the wifi mac is the same. where is the problem?
     
  90. Moogle Stiltzkin

    Hi Toastman.

    I confirm that CIFS is working because my QNAP reports that the E4200 Linksys router with Toastman tomato firmware is connected to my QNAP. Also in windows dos it says the UNC mount is available.

    Even the bandwidth logs also loads now. It didn't before because i had recently just changed my QNAP password.

    The cifs client menu which previously said retrying etc... until i updated my password to the new one is now gone away.

    The only error i see is, even though it's working, isthe CIFS client which says

    "Total / Free Size: (not mounted)"

    which is not true because everything else indicates that the CIFS is working.

    This doesn't seem to be just your firmware, because i saw the same thing in Victek's RAF as well. Any ideas ?

    Witch version should i use for wnr3500l ?

    Because i have try Tomato Firmware v1.28.7480 MIPSR2-Toastman-RT K26 USB Ext
    But the wireless is really unstable.

    Thanks in advance ;)

    KyleS Networkin' Nut Member

    Sorry. It wasn't meant to be offensive, misleading, nor silly.

    I have the same setup across both your Build and Victeks. Classing doesn't appear to function correctly in your builds.

    [​IMG]

    If you want, I can load your build again and take screenshots of the incorrect classing. Latency as a result of this would be extremely erratic.

    As for the crash. It was running fine. However, when I started using the WebGUI, the unit reset on me.
     
  93. Toastman

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    bagu, that version should be fine. Wireless seems OK here, what's happening with it?

    KyleS, did you erase NVRAM between builds and reconfigure? Also. from your screenshot I don't see what is the problem?

    All versions of Toastman have fully functional QOS. If you can't get it to work, then you need to learn how to use it.
     
  94. Toink

    Toink Network Guru Member

    @KyleS

    It would help if you can post WHICH of Toastman's build you flash WHAT model of router with.

    Posting issues on builds without even taking time to be more explicit and leaving out the details made your post, in fact looked offensive, misleading AND silly.

    When posting issues, not just in this forum, but in every forum where you are raising an issue, one should at least make sure that the basic facts are there.

    1.28.7478, 1.28.7479, 1.28.7480, Toastman-VLAN-BETA-1.28.4404. So I'm assuming every build. Model: RT-N16.

    I did clear my NVRam, yes.

  98. Toastman

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    bagu, I don't know. I have 3 RT-N16's running in this building. Two of them are routers, in a switch room about 40 meters from me, on another floor, and with perhaps 7 concrete walls in between us. But if I enable the wireless in those routers, I can still receive them here, albeit weakly. The other is in my apartment, (it's a test unit) and if I go for a walk with my laptop I can receive a quite useable signal about 70 meters away and a good way along the main road. That's pretty much the same as the AP's in the building, which are WRT54GL's with ND driver.

    So I am at a loss to explain why others have wireless issues which I have never seen here :(. I can only advise that you revert to a build that worked OK for you.

    Hackerivs - what exactly is the problem?
     
  99. bagu

    bagu Network Guru Member

    I also have a RT-N16 witch work really fine with your build.

    But for the wnr3500l, the only solution i have found is to use tomatousb witch work well.
    I don't know why.

    Is there any difference in wireless between your build and the tomatosub build ?
