    If it's not on 100% load, it means the cpu can handle the QoS processing.
    For the normal ADSL connection, 24mbps, the WRT54G(L/S) works fine with it's 200mhz, so any new router handles an ADSL connection with almost no problem.
    I'm trying to test the maximum throughput that this router can handle, because (if i'm lucky) soon i'll have a connection that will give me 100mbps download speed.
    The 3500L seems not to handle 100mbps with QoS, and in a preliminary test dd-wrt does a worse job in QoS performance than tomato (but that should be tweakable obviously). But with 100mbps of download, with luck I don't need QoS to help me :p (maybe)

    I'm a total noob on this. I just got a new WNR500L and flashed it with DDWRT. Now what firmware image should I download and install? There's like 5 files under K26-MIPSR2 on the download link.

    Thanks.

    @teddy_bear: just enable IPv6 in packages, so we could install packages from optware and use it - actually no need for GUI ;)

    @teddy_bear

    Got some new infos again.

    I confirmed that an IPv6 enabled kernel is NOT needed to get that I call now "IPv6 pass through".

    Just a reminder of what is this: let IPv6 packets pass to the LAN without being altered by the router by using a filtering bridge (WAN>LAN). Of course, I'm assuming that your ISP provides you a true IPv6 connection (not tunnel). As IPv6 does not need NAT and thanks to the Stateless Auto Configuration, all the computers in the LAN will auto configure with a public IPv6.

    So far, the mod just need to provide ebtables and some of its filters to get a basic ipv6 support.

    Steps to get it work :

    - Activate bridge filtering in kernel : Networking support => Networking options => Network packet ... (Netfilter) => Bridge: Netfilter Config
    - Enable Ethernet Bridge tables support (ebtables)
    - Enable ebt broute, ebt filter
    - ebtables was already in the file src-rt/router/Makefile, so we just need to adjust to get it cross compile

    Code:
    ebtables: dummy
            $(MAKE) -C ebtables CC=$(CC) LD=$(LD)
    
    ebtables-install: dummy
            install -D ebtables/ebtables $(INSTALLDIR)/ebtables/usr/sbin/ebtables
    
            mkdir -p $(INSTALLDIR)/ebtables/usr/lib/
            cp ebtables/*.so $(INSTALLDIR)/ebtables/usr/lib/
            cp ebtables/extensions/*.so $(INSTALLDIR)/ebtables/usr/lib/
            mkdir -p $(TARGETDIR)/rom/etc/
            cp ebtables/ethertypes $(TARGETDIR)/rom/etc/ethertypes
    
    - Get the latest sources for the ebtables userspace tool at http://ebtables.sourceforge.net/downloads/latest.html
    - Untar in src-rt/router/ebtables
    - Add the following to the firewall script
    Code:
    brctl addif br0 vlan1
    ebtables -t broute -A BROUTING -i vlan1 -p ! ipv6 -j DROP
    
    That's all! I don't know if that I did is the best way to do it but if you feel so, you can add it to your mod :wink1:

    Help with settings to get best throughput on N and G clients?

    hello teddy_bear,
    Recently I have purchased WNR3500L and flashed it with Tomato Beta 10. Since then I started having a very low throughputs on all of N-Clients. Here are my observations (all my comparisons are between WNR3500L and WL520gU)
    (1) N-clients (connected via USB N adapters) have their throughputs reduced to 1/4 th of what they were with WL520gU
    (2) G-clients improved their throughput by 50%.
    (3) When I connect to my neighbor's Linksys G-router (stock firmware), my N-clients do get decent throughput similar to what I was observing.

    Based on these observations, n-clients are not able to get good throughput with WNR3500L with Tomato. Can someone share what settings they had to twek to support both N-clients and G-clients while keeping optimal throughtput across the board.

    Here are my settings:

    Channel:
    Channel 6 Width 40 MHz
    Security:
    WPA/WPA2 Personal AES/TKIP

    I am running with all default Advanced settings and I have not changed any other settings.

    Thanks,
    S Madduru

    pharma Network Guru Member

    madduru,

    I'm not sure but I think with N clients you also need to set CTS protection mode to AUTO in the Advanced section. I think I read that on a google search.

    Pharma
     
  8. madduru

    madduru Addicted to LI Member

    N-clients are getting low throughput

    Pharma,

    As you suggested, I tried with
    CTS Protection="Auto", but it did not improve the throughput.

    I have even tried with
    801.1n Preamble=Auto.
    No improvement at all.


    Here is my setup:

    Router: Netgear WNR3500L with Tomato Bet10

    The two n-adapters that I am using are:
    Airlink 101 1T2R
    ENGENIUS EUB9706 Wireless N 802.11b/g/n 300Mbps USB Adapter.

    Any other suggestions?

    Thanks

    Any ideas if WDS works with WPA2/AES? I've been reading it doesn't work with Tomato and I've been having trouble getting it to work. If not, what's the strongest encryption I can set my network to while still retaining WDS?

    i tried it with beta07 and although it works, it wasn't as stable as WPA/AES which is rock solid.

    i've heard it's improved with beta10, try it and report back!

    My G only clients are low bandwidth so I cannot say if they exhibit similar behavior, but I noticed that signal strength was down (using the same Netgear router as you) considerably when compared to the trusted old WRT54GL at default settings (but running with a pair of high gain antennas - I got those after my WRT300N V2 died and was refunded rather than replaced.. and at that point coverage wasn't what I need it to be) - I walked around the whole house (three floors including cellar) with two N notebooks and a G wireless phone and the results were pretty obvious. Where I previously got a 54mbit connection, I only got 22mbit. After trying various settings and bricking the first WNR3500L I then upgraded to my RT-N16, which brought a notable improvement. Slapped some high gain antennas on the RT-N16 and I'm finally happy again. I'm not convinced connection speed is really up to what it was back with the WRT300N and a dedicated Linksys N PCcard, but I get consistent connection speeds above 54mbit and depending on the location I even get 144mbit - not that I consider this particularly good, but it does the trick, and there's a reason I wired the house with Gigabit.

    Did you perform any measurements before swapping the firmware? I suspect that the built-in antennas simply aren't good enough to cover an extended space, and since I need to cover three floors (and always had the antennas radiate vertically rather than horizontally since I need reception in the cellar), the router's default antenna positioning probably don't work for me.

    Linksys WRT160N v3

    Hello every one,

    and a big thank you to Teddy for this cornucopia of firmware & routers supported. I own a Linksys WRT160N v3 and had left it in the back of a closet until I saw this thread. I can now turn it into a real router. :biggrin:

    I have successfully flashed it to the latest DD-WRT firmware specially made for it's transition (dd-wrt.v24-13309_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini_wrt160nv3.bin). Now when I try to flash it to Teddy's firmware it updates for the specified 300 seconds and then it just keep on updating... 15 minutes later I get a firmware update failure message and the router uptime indicates it has never rebooted.

    Also tried re-flashing the DD-WRT firmware and I ge the same result.

    What am I doing wrong?

    The firmware I am using is: tomato-K26-1.27.9045MIPSR2-beta10.01-Std.rar that I have extracted, and then renamed the .trx into .bin

    Any suggestions?

    Peter M

    EDIT: I tried one more hard reset and then uploaded the new firmware from Windos XP using Firefox instead of Safari on my Mac... don't know if it was the reason but it now works. Will post back on stability after I've put it through it's paces.

    Here's how I flashed my firmware from stock ASUS 1.0.0.6 RT-N16

    Download this file for my router http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/downloads/others/eko/BrainSlayer-V24-preSP2/03-24-10-r14144/broadcom_K26/dd-wrt.v24-14144_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini_RT-N16.trx

    Open up Firefox, go to the firmware upgrade page, browse to ddwrt file, and hit upgrade. Come back after 3 minutes, and enter in admin details.

    Now I went to ddwrt firmware upgrade page, download the newest tomato 2.6 build, change extension to .bin, and choose to reset setting, then hit upgrade.

    All done, I have Tomato now. Optional is to erase nvram after flashing to Tomato

    All works great, saves half the time as the other method above.
     
  16. cariyawa

    cariyawa Addicted to LI Member

    Yes. it will save you some time...but also it will/may end up you in trouble. The posted one is the "proper" way. That doesn't mean all other methods don't work..or wrong. We have posted it, because there are lot of new people who are trying to switch to tomato and they don't need to get in to trouble at the first instance they encounter tomato. Also nvram erase is NOT optional. It is recommend, once you flash a new firmware.

    IPP2P -> OpenDPI?

    Are there any plans to merge OpenDPI in place of IPP2P for the QoS engine? Or is that something we wait for from the main Tomato branch.

    Thanks for maintaining this project. It's running beautifully on my Asus RT-N16.
     
  22. vinuneuro

    vinuneuro Networkin' Nut Member

    What's the need for it? The default QoS settings work fantastically without any special filters. The only thing I added was a classification for Vonage by ip.

    So far the RT-N12 is working great for me. Channel 1 was a bit flaky like others have reported, but everything is smooth in 6. I really liked the Buffalo WHR-HP-G300N I was using, but Tomato's QoS (so much better than dd-wrt) is more than worth the switch to the Asus router.

    I do notice a new setting in QoS compared to the latest version on my WRT54G. What's the best setting for Qdisc Scheduler, sfq or pfifo?

    Thanks for all your work teddy_bear.

    Do you or any one else have a detailed how to using this method?

     
  24. pharma

    pharma Network Guru Member

    That is the same procedure I used ... you might want to reflash with Linksys original firmware for the router and redo the process again. Use the router's recovery utility menu to load the original firmware.
     
  25. dswann

    dswann Networkin' Nut Member

    With my Asus RT-N12 I followed partially these directions:


    For simplicity, connect only the PC to one of the router's LAN ports with a normal [uplink] ethernet cable. You will need to manually set the address of your PC's Network LAN card to a STATIC IP in the same subnet of the router

    Unplug the power connector from the back of the router.

    While pushing & holding the recessed Restore button on the back of the router, plug the power connector back in. The Restore button is NOT the raised red WPS button.

    When the power LED slowly blinks on and off, release the Restore button. The router is now in "RESCUE MODE".

    Use the Asus Firmware Restoration Utility [which you should have installed on the PC] to upload a tomato xxx.trx file (didn't have to rename to .bin). Router should reboot

    After this reboot, clear the NVRAM

    Looks that way. Looking at the list, I'd think you want:

    tomato-K26USB-1.27.9045MIPSR2-beta10-Ext.rar/download

    There's also a vpn version. Not sure what that's for, since I used the non-vpn-non-usb version for my RT-N12.

  28. cariyawa

    You need to flash either:

    tomato-K26USB-1.27.9045MIPSR2-beta10-vpn3.6.rar - this is with VPN

    or

    tomato-K26USB-1.27.9045MIPSR2-beta10-Ext.rar - this is with out VPN

    its strange because I was going off this...figured it would be named NO USB, not std...ok...try it again

    Standard: all features described above; ~300KB JFFS space (5 blocks) available on 4MB flash routers;
    Extras: all features of Standard plus built-in NTFS support (starting from build 36), included Linux Ext2/Ext3 and FAT32 filesystem utilities (fdisk, e2fsck, mke2fs, mkswap, mkdosfs), built-in loop device support, some extra Linux commands not included in other builds, and additional color schemes. ~120KB JFFS space (2 blocks) available on 4MB flash. This version is for people who don't really need JFFS space, or have 8MB flash routers, and would like to be able to partition/format drives in Linux native Ext2/Ext3 format or in FAT32 format directly on the router without installing any additional tools.

    No USB: well, this is the USB mod... However, it grew up to be an "extended" version of Tomato even without USB support, so starting from build 36 I'm compiling non-USB version (ND only) for routers with no USB ports. This build has about 900KB of JFFS space (15 blocks) available on 4MB flash routers.

    **edit** ok, flashed w/the EXT version and I can now see usb support. Was able to add my storage devices....now to get my HP printer to work....

    **4/22-edit**- woot, just got my HP5610 printer on the network...my daughter loves me more now!

    I purchased a new Sony laptop with a Atheros AR9285 b/g/n built in wireless adapter. When I first connected to network Tomato (ND USB Mod with Kernal 2.6) stated I had wireless connection speeds of 150/150 mbs. I played around with the laptop for a couple of hours without any change in speed.

    Then I noticed there were lots of Windows 7 updates waiting to be installed. After updating my wireless speeds went down to 65/65 mbs --- obviously one of the windows updates altered this. Just wondered if this happened to anyone else.

    Currently I am recovering the laptop to it's original state to see if I get the 150/150 wireless connections again.

    EDIT: After reinstalling I am now back to 150/150 mbps. Guess I'll install windows 7 updates one at a time to see which changes things.

    I think you might get better support for the RT-N16 as it looks a little more popular around this forum AND it has 2 USB posrt (USB 2.0) vs only 1 for the WNR3500L. Also in my area the Asus is less expensive. Looks like a no brainer to me.


    Has anyone tested throughput on the RT-N16? Is the Gigabit switch up to snuff? How fast does data transfer through the USB?

    just wanted to report that after switching from the tomato-ND release to teddy bear's release for my buffalo WHR-G54S Access Point, the wireless is now 100% rock solid. zero drops, loss packet, etc. I would venture to guess that your release uses a different wireless driver than the ND and that made all the difference in the world.

  40. humba

    humba Network Guru Member

    Price seems to be dependant on where you live.. here the RT-16N is about 60 to 70% more expensive.
    The RT-16N also has two USB ports versus one on the Netgear, and external antennas (which can be replaced by somthing better if needed) versus internal ones. Even with the default antennas, the RT-16N seems to deliver a better signal in and around my 2 story house (plus cellar)

    On the plus side, the Netgear uses different colors for the LEDs - which could potentially be used to show link connection speed (not done right now) and WAN status (PPPoE link up.. DHCP received).

    My Internet connection isn't fast enough to be router limited so I can't tell which one can route faster.

    I am still using Beta 07 Teddy and all is well. I still have an occasional wireless dropout the ONLY happens on our iphones. Maybe something to do with WMM enabled? Either way, no big deal.

    Oh, if anyone has any help in getting my iMac to print to my printer on the USB port, I would appreciate it. I've tried everything that I know of. It's an Epson R340 and all my PC's work with it, just the mac doesn't!

    I am pretty sure this router will hold up to the fastest connections. I regularly get 35mb down and 15-16mb up and it hasn't skipped a beat. :)

    I use a couple N12's (in 'wireless ethernet bridge mode' to bridge to a N16. my network is set to N-only. i just updated 1 of my N12's from beta07 to beta10 and in 10 it won't allow me to choose N-only as a wireless network mode. it says "N-only is not supported in wireless client modes".

    Thanks! Indeed, the inbound QoS doesn't work in all K26 builds - I'm not using inbound limiting myself, and didn't catch this bug. Apparently new policer is not compatible with Tomato QoS scripts... Outbound QoS is working fine though (it's not using the same policer).
    I'll fix it in the next build.
    No, it's a fix in beta10 ;).
    Actually, in previous builds, even though you were able to select "N-only" in client modes, it worked the same way as "Auto" - your router would be able to connect to "G" APs as well (however, if you set it to "B-Only", you won't be able to connect to G or N APs - that's how Broadcom wi-fi driver works). Beta10 eliminates the confusion by explicitly telling you that the "N-only" setting doesn't work in client modes - just use "Auto".

    I have a newbie question. I have a Windows Mobile phone with Marvell GSPI8686 Wireless card and RT-N16 with tomato beta10. I could not get the phone wifi connected to the router (both beta05 and beta10). But I could easily connect it to a DLink DI-635m with stock firmware. Since I could see detail setting in DI-635M, I wonder if someone can teach me how to tweak the wifi setting in tomato to allow the connection.

    Asus RT-N16 doesn't come with jumbo frame.
    Can someone help me confirm that whether jumbo frame is possible on N16 through Tomato?

    I am debating between Netgear 3500L (which seems to have jumbo frame support) and Asus RT-N16

    Than you for your inputs.
     
  49. teddy_bear

    teddy_bear Network Guru Member

    I don't have this card, and can't experiment with it myself - but I'd like to point out that in addition to tweaking Tomato settings, you may also need to upgrade (or downgrade) your card drivers, or play with the card settings as well.
    Not yet. Even though there's a GUI setting for this, it doesn't appear to be working. It looks like Broadcom Ethernet driver is missing some code required to fully support jumbo frames in the switch, and without the detailed specs of the switch we can only wait until Asus completes the support in their future firmware updates...
    The same is true for WNR3500L which uses the same switch.

    Prince,

    You should create a separate post on the main Tomato forum page. At first glance it seems your problem may be related to other issues. Have you tried using the router with the original firmware loaded to see if you get the same problems? If you still get the same problems with the official firmware loaded then check the official RT-N16 forum to see if others have similar problems to yours.

    IP 192.168.1.120-192.168.1.150
    Sub 255.255.255.0
    Def Gate 192.168.1.1

    But at times provides
    IP 192.168.0.101
    Sub 255.255.255.0
    Def Gate 192.168.0.1

    It seems that when WPA, not WPA2, is enabled it works fine. Using K26-MIPSR2 Beta 10.

    Thank you very much, any ETA on the next build? All 3 of my routers: WRTSL54GS, WL-520GU & RT-N16 are running your K26 builds now, many thanks again! :thumbups:

    Seems like only the MIPSR2 firmware has bugged inbound QoS, I can confirm that the outbound QoS works fine.

    I posted more info here: http://www.linksysinfo.org/forums/showpost.php?p=362682&postcount=4

    I thought jumbo frames were working already because I tried transferring some files through the switch and I got a stable ~115MB/s (920Mbit/s) when the files are cached. Uncached transfers were HDD limited to around ~80MB/s.

    If Jumbo frames aren't working and you can get 920Mbit/s then I guess there's no need to bother?

    Teddy_bear sorry to bother you again, but I'm getting PPPoE connection drops when the connection is heavily saturated even though there is nothing physically wrong with the link. The problem is with LCP echo intervals and LCP echo fail settings.

    http://www.linksysinfo.org/forums/showpost.php?p=318048&postcount=25

    I know that my ISP has a huge upstream buffer so when the connection is saturated, packets get dropped sometimes. I need to increase the LCP echo fail setting, but I don't see pppoe_lei or pppoe_lef in nvram. Are these settings implemented at all?

    Thanks again!
     
  58. teddy_bear

    teddy_bear Network Guru Member

    That's ok - you can just set these values normally, via "nvram set ..." command, they are implemented in the code. When they are not present in nvram, the default values are used (lei=30, lef=5). Please let me know if these settings help to solve your connection drops problem.

    Update - build 9045, beta 11

    No functional changes in this build - only bug fixes and stability-related patches.
    Changes from the previous build - beta10:
    • Fixed inbound QoS limits not working.
    • Fixed (once again) PPTP conntrack helper, disabled RTSP conntrack by default since it seems to cause problems with other conntrack helpers.
    • Fixes for LEDs behavior on Netgear WNR3500L.
    • Fixed build process that could produce a non-bootable image in some cases (1:127 probability).
    • Another set of backports from kernel 2.6 mainstream tree (network layer and memory allocator) to fix various kernel bugs and improve the overall performance.
    • Applied Samba 3 security patches from samba.org (should fix some rare occasions when users could access Samba shares without entering a password even though Samba was configured with authentication required in the GUI).
    • Minor Ethernet driver updates from Broadcom SDK 5.10.140.x.
    • Software updates: Busybox updated to the latest ver. 1.16.1 (with post-release patches), usb_modeswitch (in Extras build) is updated to ver. 1.1.2 (new-style configuration files included).
    • Tuned up some kernel parameters to improve stability of memory- and bandwidth- hungry applications, like torrent clients.
    • Allowed to flash back Netgear .chk firmware images.
    • Added option to erase NVRAM after flashing the new firmware image - useful when flashing to other firmwares.
    • Included NFQUEUE Netfilter target.
    • Included fsync command (Busybox applet) into USB Extras builds.
    • Non-USB Std kernel 2.6-based build now includes JFFS support, with ~192KB of usable JFFS space available on 4MB flash.
    • Fixed display of some password fields (FTP users and Samba passwords) in GUI to use dots when editor doesn't have focus.
    • Included changes from official Tomato 1.28 beta (GUI option to select which menus are expanded, increased PPPoE username/password length, warn if saving an empty Access Restriction).
    • Cosmetics and minor fixes.
    Known issues with this build:
    • When trying to save settings in the GUI, you may receive an error "Invalid number. Valid range: -1-2147483647" for no apparent reason (most probably when saving VPN settings). Please see this post for a temporary workaround.
    Links to the firmware binaries and the git repository with sources are in the 1st post.

    Just a quick question: is it safe to restore my beta 10 config after flashing beta 11? In other words: is the beta 10 configuration file compatible with beta 11?

    Great, thanks teddy_bear.

    The status with the K26 std build on WRT54G-TM is

    1. The Power LED is steady after loading the firmware from K24 version tomato-ND-1.27.8745-Std
    2. The Power LED is steady if soft rebooted from web interface
    3. If power cycled the Power LED is always flashing

    The difference between soft and hard reboot must be what has confused my testing before, but suggests some secondary device not being properly reset on soft-reboot?

    Upgraded to beta10 yesterday morning, and beta11 this morning on my RT-N16. So far, things look great!

    Couple of notes:
    1. I finally got around to testing SIP connection tracking with my Vonage service. It works great, no need for manual port forwards (10000 udp ports!) anymore.
    2. PPTP connection tracking - I still need to have PPTP/GRE conntrack turned off to establish a connection with my work VPN. RTSP conntrack can be in either state, as long as the PPTP conntrack is off for it to work. As soon as I turn it on, it gets stuck in authentication and eventually times out.

    Keep up the good work teddy_bear!

    Is it just me or does the system clock reset itself every time I reboot the router? RT-N16 here. Is this normal behaviour?

    My router clocks have always started as, I think it's Dec 31 1970 until NTP comes up and syncs, you can see it in the logs, same behavior back to my first WRT54G v2.0 all the way through my RT-N16..

    There is something wrong with the PPPoE code. I keep getting random disconnects when the link is saturated with bittorrent transfers. I tried raising pppoe_lef to 20 from the default of 5, no effect.

    Most of the time, the connection reconnects so fast that I keep the same IP. The physical connection is fine, modem holds solid sync. It's definitely not LCP timing out since the default interval is 30s and I set the fail limit to 20 retries = 10minutes?

    The same happens with usenet transfers, but with less severity, it might reconnect every 30mins or so instead of every few minutes.

    That's the theory. Using the SIP connection tracking feature loads a few kernel modules and tracks your initial outgoing SIP connection. When a new call comes in, it deals with setting up the appropriate NAT traversal.

    With my Vonage service, I have an old Motorola VT1005 ATA device behind my RT-N16. Usually, I would port forward 10000-20000 UDP to get this to work. After my upgrade to beta10/11, I figured I'd leave out the port forwards and just "click on" the SIP connection tracker. It seems to have worked just fine; I tested incoming and outgoing calls and made sure I had two-way audio on each.

    VPN setup issue

    I have a problem in beta 11 which I didn't have in beta10. I was using VPN server function with static key(TAP interface and UDP protocol). Now I can't use the key. After I put the key and when I try to save using the "save" button it tells me:
    Code:
     Invalid number. Valid range: -1-2147483647 
    Anybody facing the same problem?

    Strange... I was able to reproduce exactly the same problem prior to beta10, but after I applied some fixes in beta10 it works for me just fine - I can VPN now from all computers on my network with this conntrack turned on with no issues.
    The only problem I noticed was when RTSP conntrack was loaded _after_ PPTP one. Try to uncheck other conntracks to see if there's a conflict between some of them.
    Looks like it doesn't like your "TLS Renegotiation Time" value. Set it to a number in this range - it should fix the error.

    HKPolice,
    System clock is NOT kept when the router is off/restarted - this is normal. None of these routers keep time between sessions, they sync it every time via NTP.
    Not sure what can cause your connection problems. Would be interesting to know if anyone else has the same issue (so far no other such reports AFAIR). Have you had the same problem with prior betas? Does it only happen when you download with torrent or usenet client (and where do you run in - on your computer, or on the router)?
    BTW, I have plans to update PPPoE client in this mod as well (to use more recent rp-pppoe plugin for pppd instead of ancient pppoecd) - but not sure how soon I can get to it (and of course - I don't know if the newer client will help in your situation)...

    iroot,
    These modules were omitted by mistake - I'll re-upload the archive soon. In the meantime you probably can use the modules from beta10 - they are still available in the "Rotten" section of download area.

    crack and ladysman,
    No need to reset and re-enter setting when upgrading from beta10 to beta11 - they should be compatible (that said - nvram reset and manual reconfigure is always the first step in troubleshooting in case of any new issue you experience).

    Antenna gain

    Hi,

    I was looking at WRT DD the other day and noticed on the sim that in wireless there was an antenna gain option.

    Does anyone know what this does in terms of performance for wireless and whether Tomato can do this (or needs it)

    I have an ASUS RT-N16 with 3 x 10dbi antennas.

    Also in downloads, what is in the "Extras" package?

    And finally, are there currently any good add-ons for this eg media server, torrent client etc?

    Thanks

    In the Basic settings I have the followings:
    Code:
    Interface Type: TAP
    Protocol: UDP
    Port: 1194
    Firewall: Automatic
    Authorization mode: static key
    
    Sine I don't use "TLS" as authorization mode, I don't have "TLS recognition time" option in "Advanced" menu. Following are default in "Advanced" menu when I select "static key" from "Basic" menu. I didn't have to play with "Advanced" menu at all. In beta10, the only thing that left to setup my server was to put the static key and save which can't be done in beta11. :biggrin:

    After setup above I have following in my "Advanced menu"

    Code:
    Poll interval:0
    Respond to DNS:
    encryption cipher:use default
    compression: Adapative

    Does this build support gigabit ethernet on the RT-N16 or is it just Wireless-N that it supports?

    I don't have a gig card, but I believe it supports gigabit ethernet.

    Aha! Found the small bug - it's in the changes ported from 1.28 beta code, particularly this one "In GUI, prevent '.' in numeric fields, but allow as port set separator".
    As a temporary workaround before the next build is published, you can add the following commands into your "Init" script:
    Code:
    cp /www/tomato.js /tmp/tomato.js
    sed -i 's!\^ \*\\d+ \*\$!\^ \*[-\\+]?\\d+ \*\$!g' /tmp/tomato.js
    mount -o bind /tmp/tomato.js /www/tomato.js

    Still not resolved :mad:?
    I suppose it very well might be something in the nvram - CFE can do some initialization based on nvram values, but only on hard reset...
    However, in the current K26 sources I already added all nvram values set by dd-wrt code for this model - not sure what else we can try right now...

    Maybe a dumb question but.... Can anyone tell me what the advantage is, if there is one, of running a K26 build, versus the equivalent non-K26 build - on a Wl-500GPv2? Or any router for that matter.... I'm just curious...

    For all builds the switch (LAN and WAN) connects at 1000Mbps if you have a computer with Gigabit Ethernet ports and auto-connect.

    Yet to perform a thorough test of throughput LAN to WAN or WLAN, but indications are that its not even twice as fast as K24 WRT54GL type routers. K26 has more features but is supposed to be more efficient - I expect further optimisations will be made.

    How does it work with Wireless-N then? The quoted 300Mbps is of course a marketing hypothetical maximum signalling rate, and I suspect 200Mbps full-duplex wired 100Mbps Ethernet perfectly adequate!

    I have compared many nvram dumps and cannot find any difference, its not the CFE on its own as the same nvram works fine with K24 builds. There's nothing obvious in boot messages on serial console, but it appears to me that something is actively signalling an alarm by holding the status off-steady.

    Everything seems to work fine though, I just get the occasional strange kernel message, which seems to be triggered by connection on serial console.

    Not a dumb question, K26 does appear to be slower than the mature K24, and the binary Broadcom drivers with associated kernel mods mean that it is hard to keep up with the newest developments in the Linux kernel. The use of the same toolchain means that many apps work on both platforms. I can't currently name anything that is K26 only, but USB support should be better?

    Some of us just can't miss the opportunity to keep close to the bleeding edge...

    Hello,
    I am the owner of a wnr3500l and currently trying your tomato firmware. I have one request: couldn't it be possible to implement a similar "wireless enabling schedule" option like the one we found in dd-wrt firmware. As I do not use wirelessly my internet connection during the nights, I would be grateful to shut down the wifi signal during those periods.

    Thank you in advance

    I get the same error as another user got couple of pages ago but I have selected TLS instead of static key under VPN settings.

    Invalid number. Valid range: -1-2147483647

    going to revert back to beta10 which should hopefully fix it.

    It is a bug. TB has already found it. Also he has suggested the following workaround. Still I didn't try it though.

    hey there, welcome to the cult!

    what you're asking can easily be accomplished using the access restriction feature of the firmware.

    This exists already under "Access Restriction"

    I've only extensively tested Beta11 on the RT-N16 because it's the only one with working inbound QoS. Beta9, 10 and 11 are working fine on the WL-520GU but it's connected to a much slower DSL line (only 3mbit) so I don't think BT clients stress the firmware enough to cause any instability.

    I'm running the BT clients on my PC, utorrent to be exact, with uTP enabled. I turned off the client and the PPPoE connection has been stable for over 18hrs, but I'm pretty sure if I turn it on again while saturating the connection, it'll start reconnecting.

    Yep, tried downloading some linux torrents with 2600+ seeds and the router reconnected again within 10 minutes :(

    3500L / beta11 -- scanner?

    I just upgraded to K26USB-1.27.9045MIPSR2-beta11-vpn3.6 (frm beta10) on my WNR-3600L. No problems during upgrading or running over the last 24hours. The blue light for wireless is now working!

    On the USB port, I have connected a USB mini-hub to which a HP LaserJet M1319f MFP printer/scanner and a WD MyBook 500GB drive are connected. Both devices work nicely for network printing and storage, respectively. Is it possible to use the scan facility in the MFP in this network setup?

    The Gigabit DOES work on an Asus RT-N16 with all versions I have tested including the last, for example
    Code:
    Dec 31 16:00:09 unknown user.info init[1]: Tomato 1.27.9045 MIPSR2-beta11 K26 USB Ext
    Dec 31 16:00:09 unknown user.info init[1]: Asus RT-N16
    and my PC reports
    Code:
    [ 2686.642116] sky2 eth1: Link is up at 1000 Mbps, full duplex, flow control both
    The same Network card connected to my WRT54G-TM correctly reported
    Code:
    [   13.081203] sky2 eth1: Link is up at 100 Mbps, full duplex, flow control both
    Did your device work with Netgear firmware? Is that K26?
