    I had a little time to look at QOS - currently I think there are actually 2 issues.

    1) L7 filters don't work and everything after them misclassifies, which is a problem. Disable all L7 filters.
    2) The "bytes transferred" function isn't functioning correctly. This isn't so much of a problem, as everything classifies into the lower transfer rule. But you can probably disable the "bytes transferred" from all rules that use them without causing any issues.

    To clarify:

    The QOS in these compiles does not have the same incoming code, it doesn't use IMQ and is really acting to police the input using limits. It doesn't have an "overall" limit. It is the "old" qos that was originally part of tomato. One day we hope to get IMQ ingress working again if we can get the necessary parts precompiled by an OEM, but this may never happen, of course. Shibby is doing his best on this.

    Not sure if it's the cause of your particular issues, but here's the fix I did last year to the 2.6.36 kernel branch:

    https://github.com/RMerl/asuswrt-merlin/commit/56e023a27d61e9a064856b7dadf19d3e2bcc331a

    I'm not sure if it's all that's needed. I had to disable L7 support a few months ago as it conflicted with the Trend Micro DPI engine.

    Aha, thanks for that! I'll take a look when I get a break from work.

    EDIT ... looks like that commit is already included.

    "I will see a spike in ping times"

    That's what I was talking about. The ping thing, as far as I can tell, is not resolved. I wish it was. Can only report my experience. That longer ping results in stalled or laggy data flow and shows up when reviewing web sites, streaming video, etc., wirelessly.

    Can't explain it. Just my observation.

    I use PingPlotter with a delay below 50ms and 2-500 samples...a lot faster than the command line.
    Definitely I see variation on 2.4GHz, but I attribute it to the general crowdiness in this band (although I carefully selected my channel).
    5GHz runs squeaky clean 99% of the time - I'd have to try a 200 ping sample several times to get a result over 1ms.
    I am still on 124 until you guys confirm 127 is fixing the problems...as I mentioned in this thread before, I do not experience a ping issue personally.

    PS. Can someone confirm that manually running the nvram commands to unset the unwanted MAC (from this post: http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.php?threads/tomato-for-arm-routers.69719/page-14#post-257798) is safe to avoid wiping nvram? Shibby's post announcing 127 (on http://tomato.groov.pl/) seems to indicate so, but it looks like there are many combinations with different outcomes depending on the config (IPv6 present or not, VLANs, etc)

    No offense intended, but it always amazes me how people aren't willing to spend 30 minutes (or 5 minutes if you use something automated like iMacros) to set things up cleanly "just in case", but are willing to troubleshoot for days when things don't quite work right...

    To each his own I guess.

    Ping response variations happen over a wireless connection. As an example, on my router, Atheros chips play well, where Intel not that well. My Intel card averages 4ms, Atheros USB adapter averages 1.5ms.

    I have installed the same type of Wi-Fi card on both my old laptop and my desktop (Intel Wi-Fi Link 5100) as I found Intel cards to be reliable and won't BSOD my machine, unlike every Atheros adapter I used (All were still in the 802.11g standard though).

    I have a mipsel router, 2.4ghz only, and antenna placement is far from optimal I believe. I have "modded" it with two external 5dbi antennas spaced like 5 inches from each other, so I kinda have no place here. Just sharing my experience.

    Just exactly who are you speaking to Edrikk? I always do a full reset and renter. When you post a general comment it is addressed to the entire community. So be specific or let it go sir.

    Not sure if this was aimed at my comment about NOT wanting to wipe clean the nvram if I don't have to...but you might have missed the part where I already do NOT have a problem to begin with...so definitely not keen to spend 1hr (30min? you must have 1 QoS rule and no fixed IP assignement) if I don't have to.
    Not being lazy, just trying to make best use of my time.

    BTW: Yes, I'd gladly spend that 1 hr troubleshooting or testing something if you'd ask me to. I see that as productive time - if not for me, for the community.

    To each his own. Now back to the questions, of which you answered none.

    Here is the odd thing about QOS, from a fresh install of Shibby 127ARM, everything works. QOS, Traffic Rates, etc. I can setup everything the way I want it to be and it works perfect. The catch is, when I reboot the router, the traffic rates page along with the details page under QOS just stop.

    I've tried taking a NVRAM dump before and after the reboot to compare but I've came up empty.

    This is on an AC68U btw.

    The kernel module isn't loaded though, DSCP isn't either and will cause the same failure...

    Only xt_recent and xt_length are loaded by default, there's still options missing *somewhere*.

    netfilter/Kbuild doesn't contain xt_layer7.h

    Complete list of available netfilter kmodules on v126.

    Tomato-ARM versus the ASUS ARM sources seem ancient in comparison, various iptables updates have occurred between the two branches, they're more then years behind...

    Hi all, I'm stuck in a bind and hoping somebody here can help...

    I had been successfully running Tomato R7000 ARM firmware on my AC1450 (boardid converted to a R7000 some time ago when R6300v2 wasn't supported by Shibby's ARM firmware) and wanted to go back to a more legit R6300v2 setup to get updates w/o having to use my serial all the time. So I changed the boardid to the R6300v2 boardid and flashed the latest Tomato R6300v2 firmware. Unfortunately my boardid partition (mtd4) is now corrupt and while I have CFE access via serial, the router is always bootlooping no matter what firmware I load in there (Netgear stock R6300v2, Tomato initial firmware). I have tried sending a NVRAM ERASE command but it doesn't stop the bootloops so I'm pretty sure the boardid partition is hosed. DD-WRT initial firmware will not load (TFTPD says I/O error during the shortly after reading the file).

    I have a clean boardid bin for the R6300v2 that ghoffman provided me, but I have no way of loading this into the mtd4 partition since the router keeps rebooting whether I load in the stock Netgear firmware or the initial Tomato firmware (they never make it to the TTL=64 webpage).

    I'm attaching logs for all of these bootloops--first for the stock Netgear firmware:

    Here's the initial tomato firmware log, which also bootloops... My problem basically boils down to stopping the bootloops due to corrupt board_data partition, and finding a way to load in a proper board_data.bin file which I do have.

    That is exactly why it was a general statement.

    Edrikk Network Guru Member

    30 minutes to 1 hour? Please google iMacros and you will (on your second and there-after setups) spend no more than 5 minutes. This is based on my own setup of: about 20 DHCPs, VPN, SSH, port forwards, 2 VLANs, etc.

    The only thing I have to do manually is turn off peekaboo on UI using:

    nvram set web_pb=0

    Then I run my imacro script and walk away... Done in 5 - 10 mins... Perfectly reproducible configs every time.

    ipse LI Guru Member

    Yeah, you piqued my curiosity and I already installed iMacros (I run Chrome...) so I guess all I need is the time and patience to do it manually once.
    I do agree that NOT wiping the slate clean can lead to unpredictable behavior, especially in this volatile environment. Maybe I'm also over-complicating my config.

    Will the R7000 firmware work on a R6700?
     
  25. Edrikk

    Edrikk Network Guru Member

    Yes.

    And it's not my suggestion. It's the suggestion from all developers of HyperWRT/Thibor/Tofu/Tomato and dd-wrt, since "the beginning of time." I think it's wise to heed the advice as a general* rule.

    Here is a very important thread that I (and most) think ANYONE thinking of flashing ANY thirdparty firmware should read. People asking for help in dd-wrt forums are always asked "did you read and follow Peacock thread?":
    http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=51486


    * General = Unless the developer posts all the changes to svn/git/other and you are technical enough to read each commit and understand whether an NVRAM property has been modified. This is not hard to do with any coding background, but most don't/can't.

    Shibby thanks I tried flashing the back to OFW file you linked but it still bootloops. I'm in the process of trying to rebuild my corrupt board_data partition which is what I believe is causing the bootloops.

    I flashed tomato-R6300v2-1.28.AT-ARM-2.6-127-initial-64K.bin again and was able to get into Tomato's Linux command prompt by pressing Enter at the "Hit ENTER for console message". See log below. I have a virgin boarddata.bin file that is ready to flash to the mtd4 board_data partition using mtd-write2 but I can't seem to find a way to upload boarddata.bin into the Linux environment. Any pointers? I'm a newbie when it comes to Linux.

    Can anyone kindly tell whether the Netgear R7000 "RESET" button is working or not? will this ever be implemented?

    Second, Is the WebUI backup and restore working now?

    Thanks. Still miss tomatoUSB by Shibby.

    Hello,

    I have the RT-AC68p and like many others on this thread, when I flash with the AC68U shibby firmware it will not take. I have also flashed with the RT-AC68R and it's the same problem.

    The issue, like the others with the RT-AC68P: I can flash it using the restore utility in Windows but when I erase the NVRAM (in either case with the WPS button held on power-on OR with "nvram erase && reboot") then the router will not boot.

    Can someone please help me to get the v127 Shibby Tomato firmware on my RT-AC68P?

    Thank you.

    Unfortunately I get this ping issue with the latest FW V127, haven't had them on V120.

    Ah, shoot. :( Well, hopefully we can see RT-AC68P support some day. Guess I'll use DDWRT or Merlin until Tomato supports my router.

    When you see this weird ping time stuff do you see it immediately after installation and starting to run your router on v127, or does this happen after a period of time (hours or days)? I've seen random ping times on versions previous to v127, but not on v127 yet. But I haven't had it up for days...I just had it up for a day, no sign of random ping times, then rebooted it in an effort to get IPv6 to work on my R7000. So I have it back up again with IPv6 enabled but not running, and I'm hoping that if I leave it enabled it will just start up at some point. Or I'll get enough time to call Comcast *smile*, I know that'll take hours assuming that they don't hang up on me like they did last time.

    Thanks.

    I don't know yet, since I updated it just yesterday from V120 to V127.
    I have a 100mbit connection and it randomly slows down to 10mbit or even stops responding (loading pages). Along with these huge ping times.

    Did you just flash upgrade or did you clear NVRAM and start over after the flashed?

    Excellent point...if you didn't clear NVRAM after the flash (before manually entering your settings), no time like the present.

    I cleared the NVRAM before and after the upgrade.
    I entered all the settings manually.

    Even more noticeable is when my speedtest results from the MacBook Pro with 802.11ac fall to 10mbps from standard 100mbps. When I open the device list in Tomato, it reports very small TX/RX of 5-15mbps. Usually it says from 800-1300mbps.

    Does anyone know how to access the settings.json on the built-in Transmission?

    I'm trying to retrace how to fix this error:

    403: Forbidden
    Unauthorized IP Address.

    Either disable the IP address whitelist or add your address to it.

    If you're editing settings.json, see the 'rpc-whitelist' and 'rpc-whitelist-enabled' entries.

    If you're still using ACLs, use a whitelist instead. See the transmission-daemon manpage for details.

    The problem was related to my share link in the download directory. On a related note, the share on my drive is being shared automatically and it's not letting me restrict access for some reason in the File Sharing area.

    IE

    I have share name Media linked to directory /tmp/mnt/NAS.

    When I access my network shares under Windows, I see both Media and a NAS folder, same exact data in each folder. The NAS folder I'm unable to restrict access, and I'm not sure why it automatically shows up.

    Thanks Shibby, I'm glad to have Transmission back up but this other issue is kind of annoying. I'm on version 127 and my mount configurations I originally set in 124.

    variables are correct. did you test over LAN or maybe over WiFi? Your result is very strange. Did you test on other PC?

    Ping issue has a high ping jumps, but never to 3000-5000ms and never got timeouts. I suggest you check cable, drivers for network adapter, because i am pretty sure it`s not a router`s fault.

    Yes, because of the people that have mentioned random ping times, and stalled or laggy data flow from the web, I've been checking my ping times every so often. And watching for lag and stalls on the internet. Everything's good here, ping times are always <1ms., and no lags or stalls on web pages over the last 3 days or so. Not in use very long yet, but I'm impressed with v127.

    Thanks again Shibby, for pulling it together.

    R is just a different SKU for large retailers such as Best Buy. It's the exact same hardware, with the exact same firmware (Asuswrt in fact doesn't even have a RT-AC68R target profile, they both use the same firmware).

    Ok, I did not read all 16 pages but I did read quite a bit of this. I recently upgraded from a WRT54GL that was running Tomato-Shibby very nice but I tired of the slow connection when there was 10+ wifi connections. Plus I needed to get on the 5Ghz because of an over saturated 2.4Ghz apartment building.

    Anyway, I decided to get an Asus RT-AC56 (ended up with an R version) since the specs were pretty close to the AC68 but with internal antennas and lower AC speeds which is fine by me to save $70. I actually found an article where they tested various speeds and signal strength between 4 routers and difference from the AC56 and AC68 were minimal if you are not taking advantage of the AC1900 speeds.

    To the point finally... I tested out the ASUS firmware and its pretty nice but I was frustrated when not finding certain options I liked in Tomato. So I flashed Tomato-Shibby 127 K26ARM-AIO and got it running. Everything seemed to be fine and I was adjusting some settings. It seemed like certain things didn't want to take (5Ghz band was not broadcasting the SSID) so I did a reboot. Thats when the trouble started. I thought the router was dead as only the Power LED would light up. But in fact I found out eventually that it was running fine but none of the LED lights would work anymore. I tried resetting the NVRAM and reflashing to no avail. I like having the LEDs so I have a general idea of whats going on with it at a glance. So I flashed the current merlin build back and all the LEDs came back as normal.

    Any idea of what's going on here? If I can get the LEDs to work I would love to get my Tomato back.

    I am heading out of town today but later this week I am glad to try again and test some things out if needed. I can submit a bug report also if thats the process, just let me know the next steps. Router works great with the Merlin build but I miss Tomato.

    Side comment: anyone else have issues with the plain HTTP interface? Seems I have to always hit cancel and refresh to get the pages to load. When I switch to HTTPS everything works fine but then the browser is giving me certificate errors since its not a verified SSL ticket. When I reset the stock ASUS firmware I have a heck of a time just getting past the setup wizard and into the main interface so I can switch on the HTTPS. I tried different browsers and nothing helps. This is all using a 1.0 GBps wired connection.

    You can't create a file in the root location, that's read only.

    Unless you mounted something in /mnt/logs it doesn't exist or is read only too.

    nvram export --set >/tmp/config.txt will work, as /tmp is the only writable location in a default tomato.

    After that you can copy it to your PC using something like WinSCP.

    You can execute: "nvram show" and copy and paste the result into a text file. You have to add "nvram set" in front of the entries and put quotes around the values to re-write them to nvram but I typically only use this for static ip addresses.

    The "nvram" binary on ARM is very basic and doesn't support most options you find in MIPSEL builds.

    Go to Administration -> Debugging, from there you can download an "NVRAM Dump". After that you'll have to edit the file yourself.

    If you make a map, eg "configs" in sda1 and give rights 0755 and then try again with:

    Thanks for that, it's a start, not easy, but a start.
    Any links to installing an NVRAM binary that support export?

    Or other ways to edit this file easily.

    I assume isolate only the settings I want to reload.
    Add NVRAM set to the front of them.

    Run commands, or script.

    well if you press reset button before plug power cable then router will not load default configuration (don`t know why yet). But when tomato is fully runned and you just press and hold reset button for more than 3secs then router will restart automatically and restore all configuration.

    Liking v128, working well on the R7000. Haven't yet tried the reset button, but really glad to hear that's working once the router's up. I only use the reset button when the router's up, so not a problem for me *smile*. A little unhappy I can't get IPv6 going, but that one's between me and Comcast (as usual). Still haven't taken the time to get on Comcast about that.

    Great work, Shibby, thanks so much!

    I just went to check IP Traffic on my router, but nothing was showing up for last 24 hours. All bandwidth usage from the point when I logged in was showing up, though. The bandwidth monitor for last 24 hours was showing up correctly. I restarted my modem right before I logged in to tomato, could that be the issue?

    Came from version 127 to 128 and the last 24 bandwidth graph doesn't work. The daily totals are working but no graph. Not sure if QOS is working because most of the graph looks like one or two categories at most (but it's been that way on ARM since I can remember).

    Regardless, thanks so much to Shibby and others for keeping Tomato moving forward!!!

    I do see a signal drop on 2.4GHz as well (around 5-6dBm) - measured exactly in the same spot suing the same machine and s/w (InSSIDer).

    Thanks Shibby...I ended up wiping NVRAM last night and as an experiment start running V1.0.4.18_1.1.52 - boy do I ever HATE it. Factory firmware (can you believe I never ran it since I bought the router...ever) didn't buy me anything: no signal strength increase, no ping consistency, just endless frustration.

    Wireless ping...huge variation and high average (used to be 1ms avg)
    Target Name: N/A

    It was worth trying, just to come back to Tomato :)

    @MrDoh - it looks like it's not possible to just upgrade to 128 from pre-126 versions without either fixing the MAC or wiping the NVRAM.

    Weird..after working OK all day, suddenly after the last reboot all the QoS info under "View Details" and "Transfer Rates" is gone. Reboot didn't fix anything.
    The "View Graph" info is all there, I just can't follow any class as before. Looks like this was reported a while back but considered a "one of".
    Now it's " two of" :)

    It's hard to fine tune QoS when flying blind. Never saw this before in my...oh, maybe 4-5 years of Shibby's Tomato.

    PS And yes, this is with a clean nvram wiped and manually reconfigured.

    Mine does the same thing, AC68U. If I do a fresh install, wipe NVRAM and reload latest firmware, everything works great. Now if I cycle power, not just a reboot command, but a full on/off or removal of the power plug, when the router boots I have the exact same issue.

    Not only is the QOS info missing, but QOS itself doesn't seem to work at all.

    Hello shibby tomato-ers,

    I see in several places that shibby tomato is supposed to support hfsplus when a formatted USB drive as such is inserted in USB.

    On v127 for AC68U, I cannot get the kernel to load hfsplus and see no message in dmesg output.

    Is the hfsplus.ko called something else under shibby tomato for ARM? I assume that's the name because on other linux systems I believe that it the kernel module, for example with linux v3.18.

    Can anyone help with autoloading the hfsplus module and getting shibby tomato to automount my hfs+-formatted drive?

    Hi fellow tomatoers,

    I am running v123 shibby on my R7000. I wanted to upgrade to v128, so I have run the interface naming fix (http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.php?threads/tomato-for-arm-routers.69719/page-14#post-257798) and uploaded the new firmware.

    To my surprise, nothing has happened. The router has rebooted cleanly to v123. So I have tried resetting it to factory (both normal and thorough mode) but no settings have been reset. Do you guys have an idea how should I upgrade? Am I stuck with v123 for some reason?

    Thanks in advance for info!

    I dont know about this one... I'm running Shibby v128 VPN on my R7000 and I see downloads get reclassified when they exceed my 10MB limit.

    The download starts within the default group and upon reaching 10+MB gets reclassified to "Bulk".
    I only run 7 classes with 3 above and below default though. Could it be list length?

    Based on what I see in the graphs, it does look to me that classification works properly...I would really love to know what makes the details disappear (because it shows ZERO connections) maybe there is a fix.
    I am at the point where I can only hope my rules work, as I can't tell from the details anymore, just the graps give some indication.

    Interesting what is different in your config and mine - as I don't see many other reports of the same issue.
    On my side, I have 32 rules, mostly IP and MAC based...I think I was lazy and left Telnet and SSH as the only L7 rules although I know they probably don't work...might try to delete those too.
    BTW...on the topic of traffic limits: I can attest that setting a rule for WWW > 2MB did NOT work for me, all WWW traffic was picked by the <2MB rule. I now got rid of all the rules having to do with traffic limits.

    I deleted all the classifications as well, I have 7 rules based solely on IP.

    Here is some screenshots I took of the GUI setup.
    http://imgur.com/a/EeGno

    I also dumped my nvram and sysinfo to compare and contrast, I edited out sensitive data with **blank**

    Code:
    nvram show | sort > nvram.txt
    
    sysinfo > sysinfo.txt
    Also, according to Shibby, QOS is outbound only at the moment.

    Everything works great until I powercycle, then the Transfer Rates window is completely blank and the View Details will only show a few IGMP connections.

    Hope this helps.
