    I just bought an RT-N16 and am excited to get it up and running. I have two questions. Does the RT-N16 support Jumbo Frames through Teddy's mod? Second, how does wireless channel width work and should I set it to 40mhz? Thanks for your help.

    Hi

    Just got a WNR3500L flashed to beta 16 and everything seems fine at the moment. I did not yet test the throughput tho.

    Thank you for the hardwork teddy!

    Hi, firstly thanks for your hard work on this, working great on WNR3500L. I have a small Question and a wish! Can you integrate more than two DDNS Entrys? Two is not enough for me so i am would like have 4 or 5 if possible, that would be really great! Perhaps you can made it, thank you thank you thank you!

    Yes, although wan was up for almost a week before they started happening. Now, even after a reboot, it seems to happen more suddenly, after just a few hours. I am using bt a bit more heavily than normal at the moment, so it could be that? I believe I also saw a few dropouts with beta15, right before I upgraded.

    Cool, great thanks! Didnt know that this Service exists.

    Yes. even beta15 was better.
    Torrent client enabled, but doesn't download anything.

    In fact, router goes offline always when i try to use VoIP. Also when i try to update my archlinux. Maybe that's all...

    Ok, good - that means that it must be related to Broadcom "fast NAT" implementation - that's what common between builds 14 and 16. If you're ok with doing some extra testing, I'll send you a couple of test builds to try.

    I'm using an Asus RT-N12. I was getting a lot of wireless drop outs with beta16, it just randomly stopped transmitting signal (confirmed with different laptops), so I rolled back to beta15. I am using the default transmit power of 42.

    Also, on both beta16 and beta15, I get kernel panics on my MacBook Pro (Atheros chipset) upon rejoining the network after sleeping the laptop for a bit (it doesn't happen if I make it sleep and then wake it up right after). It kept panicing even after a restart, if I tried to join the network fast enough. It seems to be related to upnp, as I got lines regarding my client disconnecting unexpectedly from upnpd in the router logs.

    I had to roll back to beta11.

    I have the latest v1.27 running on my ASUS RT-N16 - running very stable so far (10 days uptime)

    Dare I ask, Is there a guide or instructions on how to install the extras package to get 3G USB working?

    I've been experiencing WAN disconnects with 15 and 16 on my RT-N16 as well, but I use DCHP Cable modem (no PPOE).

    Where can I go to get Beta11 to see if that problem stabilizes it? Thanks

    UPDATE: Nevermind, found them under Rotten.

    Has anyone noticed after a few days, that the RT-N16 seems to be unable to be recognised by windows networking ?
    Im running beta 16, and windows 7 on the computers.
    Normally windows detects the router as RT-N16 (the name i decided to keep (default)) and i can access any shares via that too.
    Now i get under the network infrastructure 'group' (in windows network) UPnP Router ... and theres nothing that i can do with that.
    Ill PM TB with my syslog.txt, if thats helpful ?

    Looks like you run your modem in half-bridge mode where the upon IPs are from your dns servers, is it?

    I just got my Asus RT-N16 yesterday. After a bit of consternation caused by the router having the same IP address as my main Gateway (running ClearOS), I am up and running with beta 16. So far, my two main issues are:

    1) I can't seem to connect if I choose AES, rather than TKIP. This was never a problem with my wireless-G router (and still isn't). I'm running Windows 7 on my laptop, and I don't have any other wireless-N devices to test. Is this a known bug or might I be missing something here?

    2) The network mapping in Windows 7 doesn't seem to work now. Is there something that I can change in the router that would make it work? It isn't critical, but it would be nice.

    Might there be any tutorial on how to connect as a client to a PPTP VPN service like Overplay with the VPN Client options I see in beta16?
     
  20. rhester72

    rhester72 Network Guru Member

    The VPN client included in Tomato is OpenVPN, not PPTP.

    Hi All I'm having weird issues with laptop connecting to router. In previus versions i didn;g have. I have ASUS- TR-n16 with beta 16. Whwn I'm connected no problem when i go do Hibernate and resume mu work i have to disable wireless on router and enable then I can connect or I'm connected and no IP is issued.
     
  22. teddy_bear

    teddy_bear Network Guru Member

    Thanks for the logs (you can delete them now)! The samba error messages there most probably are caused by incorrect network configuration (for example, router's addsess specified as WINS server on the clients or on the router config - but WINS option is not activated on the "File Sharing" page).

    Try to follow this guide and see if that solves your issue. If not, please check the output of the "ps" command to see if the smbd and nmbd processes are still running when you loose your shares next time.

    Telling the Router which WAN your ISP DNS connections are on is actually preparation for multi-wan configurations...

    Ah, good reason - any chance of PPTP VPN being added to Tomato under this build?

    Is this a bug?

    Under Basic -> Network, I have my wireless settings as follows:

    Wireless Network Mode: N Only
    Channel: 1 - 2.412 GHz
    Channel Width: 40 MHz
    Security: WPA/WPA2 Personal
    Encryption: TKIP/AES

    But when I go to Status -> Overview, it shows the following for my wireless setup:

    Wireless Network Mode: N Only
    Security: WPA / WPA2 Personal + TKIP / AES
    Channel: 1 - 2.412 GHz
    Channel Width: 20 MHz
    Rate: 144 Mbps

    Why is the channel width on 20 MHz when I have it setup at 40 MHz and the rate is at 144 Mbps when wireless N is 300 Mbps? I notice if I change the wireless network mode to "Auto", then the channel width will show 40 MHz with a rate of 300 Mbps. Is this behavior? I am running I am running Tomato Firmware v1.27.9047 MIPSR2-beta16 K26 USB Ext. on my Asus RT-N16 router.

    Note that I do not have any wireless devices connected to the router at the moment. This is what shows up when I configure the wireless settings.
     
  26. teddy_bear

    teddy_bear Network Guru Member

    spikes,
    Yes - I know about that issue. Actually, it only disables 40MHz in "N-only" mode if there are any other wireless APs in the range - it's trying to apply a "good neighbor" restriction :). I already figured what causes it, and will remove the restriction in the next update. In the meantime, use "Auto" mode instead of "N-only".

    Nothing in your log indicates the PPTP connection drop.
    What it shows is that the dnsmasq is restarted one hours after establishing WAN connection - however, the WAN connection itself was not affected, and the dnsmasq restart normally should go unnoticeable to your clients.

    Why dnsmasq is restarted is another question - and is not possible to tell based on the log. One other thing is that when dnsmasq restarted, it picked up different dns servers. On initial WAN connect it used:
    Code:
    using nameserver 91.213.xxx.x#53
    using nameserver 80.67.x.x#53
    And then, on dnsmasq restart the servers were:
    Code:
    using nameserver 217.10.xx.xx#53
    using nameserver 217.10.xx.xx#53
    Any idea where these dns server addresses are coming from?

    Just ordered an RT-N16 for a friend, and after reading the last couple of pages, it seems as if there has been stability issues lately... Is there a recommended "best" version to use for stability atm? Router will only be used for normal internet duties, nothing special.

    The second one is my PPTP Client dns

    Guzel,
    What happens after these messages appear in the log? Do you loose the internet connection? If so - what do you need to do to restore it?

    How is your PPTP WAN connection configured? Do you have static IP, or do you check "Use DHCP" box? If using DHCP, do you have "DHCP Client" logging enabled on the Administration->Logging page? Please turn it on if it's not yet enabled, and post new logs including the inital WAN connect, and whatever happens after one hour.

    burritoboy9984,
    So far the beta 11 seems to be the most stable. The latest beta 16 may or may not work good for you - depending on the exact configuration.

    I found strange behavior of embedded MediaServer:
    If I share folder from USB flash with some video - all my DLNA clients plays this movie fine.
    If I share folder from CIFS (NAS with samba server connected to router) with the same video - MediaServer indexing files from that server fine, but all my DLNA clients can't play movie (or other content of MediaServer which provided through samba from NAS) in such way.
    Where is a problem? Is it a MediaServer or a Samba client bug?

    I searched this thread, and found nothing about WOL.
    I can confirm that wake-on-lan does not work with beta16 on my Asus RT-N16. Don't know if the previous versions work. I didn't try.
    I don't see wakelan is installed in the beta 16, but I installed it myself with ipkg, and use wakelan command line. It wakes up my computer.

    I don't think anyone responded to my issues, so I'll try again. I am continuing to have problems with the WPA2 settings, etc. If I set encryption to AES, things just seem to fail. If I set it to TKIP, I can get it to work, but of course, TKIP is broken.

    Also, if I am trying out a bunch of security settings, changing them around, it seems the only way to get them to work is to disable all security, connect to the network in the clear, and then re-enable security with the desired settings. This could be a Windows issue (running Windows 7 64-bit), but perhaps not.

    Any help or indication that this is a known issue is appreciated.

    I think your last post mentioned you have an RT-N16. I don’t have too much helpful info other than to say that I am running the same router with "WPA2 Personal†and AES without any issues. However, I am running beta 11 of the firmware as there seem to be a few issues with beta 16 that have made me feel like waiting for the next release.

    I am connecting to the router with a mac and with a little linux box and with an iphone. I do not have a windows machine here so I guess it is still possible you have a windows issue.

    have you tried doing a complete nvram erase [Administration -> Configuration -> Restore Default Configuration -> Erase All Data in NVRAM (thorough)]?

    QoS outbound hasn't been working well for me at all the last few builds. If I don't clear the nvram and reload the config every few days, people at the other end of my Vonage line can't hear me properly. I have the Vonage adapter classified by it's ip in QoS and have it set under Class A for 99-100% of outbound bandwidth. It's ip is also totally open using DMZ.

    Router is an RT-N12. Would appreciate some help on this.

    Drudging up the dead here but a power outage apparently set a second router that acts as a switch back to it's factory defaults, which in turn turned back on the DHCP server that I didn't need.

    So in short, to DHCP servers on the same network isn't going to work so well. Thankfully I finally caught it.

    Oh, and thanks for not slapping me around with a large trout.

    I don't think I understand your setup... Isn't this PPTP server provided by your ISP as well?
    Classification by MAC/IP may not work properly in the latest betas 14 and 16 because of a conflict with Broadcom NAT module. If QoS by MAC/IP is important for you, roll back to beta 11 for now, and wait for the next build.
    However, I can't confirm any issues with port-based classifications in beta 16 - in all my tests it worked as expected.

    Little more info on the qos source port problem: the p2p connections start out in Lowest, but when it gets to 400-500 of those connections it all starts going to Unclassified. This also happens if I use Layer 7 or IPP2P instead.

    Where can I get beta 11 from?

    Static DHCP

    Hi Teddy!
    I have used versions 11, 14, 15 and 16 on both an RT-N12 and RT-N16. The only persistent problem I have encountered is with a static IP address (static DHCP) for a Linksys PAP2 VOIP device. I am assigning the IP address with MAC, static IP and have tried populating and leaving blank the hostname.

    With either stock factory firmware or DD-WRT, when I set a static IP address on the RT-N12 or RT-N16, the router assigns it within seconds of booting and I can see it both on the router's device list in real time and in log files. With K2.4 Tomato on a WRT54GL, it also works fine and a static IP address is assigned immediately.

    With Tomato K2.6, versions 11, 14, 15 and 16, the static IP address may be assigned in 11 or 12 hours or never. I can see the static IP address pop up on the device list for a couple seconds without the hostname, and then it drops off. This happens repeatedly for hours. The IP address does not make it into the log file (DHCP ack, connect, etc).

    This is right now blocking me from using Tomato further. All other Tomato functions work extremely well that I am using and I am super appreciative of this awesome firmware. Is there more testing I could do or do you have any ideas on what is causing the problem with static IP addresses?

    FYI, I'm running WP2 PSK with AES no problem on the RT-N16 as well with several different clients, including Win7 64-bit. In addition to what others have said, make sure to do your NVRAM reset and then try to isolate your issues.

    First, attempt to take your Windows machine out of the equation. Can any other wireless clients connect via WPA2 PSK AES or TKIP? If so, then your Windows machine is probably the issue, and not your router. Update your wireless card drivers, clear your configuration, wipe your user profile, etc to try to clear it up. Additionally, try another wireless card in the same machine; USB wireless cards are cheap and are a good way to debug whether you have a bad wireless card.

    Next, attempt to connect your Windows machine to another wireless network running WPA2 PSK AES/TKIP. Does that work without issues? If so, then maybe the router is suspect and the computer fine.

    Last, if necessary, try booting your machine to a temporary operating system, like a WinPE disc or a Linux live-CD. Can you get wireless to work with your settings then?

    Try to isolate your issues; if could very well be that you have bad hardware on either side which is causing your problems, or just a corrupt install of Windows or drivers.

    I thought that at first as well when I saw vpn at the end of the name, but he said "tomato-K26-1.27.9047MIPSR1-beta16-vpn3.6.trx, apparently a vpn build without USB that is listed on sourceforge as 3.7MB rather than the 7.3MB of tomato-K26USB-1.27.9047MIPSR1-beta16-vpn3.6.trx.

    Not sure what the issue could be.
     
  65. mstombs

    mstombs Network Guru Member

    oops sorry, I had the USB version at hand,

    tomato-K26-1.27.9047MIPSR1-beta16-vpn3.6.trx is 3.74 MB (3923968 bytes)

    but I'm afraid my conclusion is the same, using sizes from my WRT54 GS & TM for CFE (pmon) and nvram

    Code:
    root@WRT54G-tm:/tmp/home/root# cat /proc/mtd
    dev:    size   erasesize  name
    mtd0: 00040000 00020000 "pmon"
    mtd1: 007a0000 00020000 "linux"
    mtd2: 00622c00 00020000 "rootfs"
    mtd3: 000a0000 00020000 "jffs2"
    mtd4: 00020000 00020000 "nvram"
    Note mtd2 is contained within mtd1

    The flash is 4MB = 4*1024*1024 = 4194304 Bytes

    The CFE is 256kB = 256*1024 = 262144 Bytes = 0.25MB

    The nvram is 128kB = 131072 bytes = 0.125MB

    Max kernel + filesystem image size is 3801088 Bytes = 3.625 MB

    and the wiki now agrees!

    The trx includes a header but it isn't that much!

    If you have enough RAM and a CIFS mount, you can always run OpenVPN standalone binaries. No GUI, of course, but if you're comfortable with command line and know what you're doing with OpenVPN, it's pretty straightforward.

    WRT610N v2 / Support ? / approximate time period ? / 2010 ? 2011 ?

    Hi Teddy Bear !

    I use your Firmware on a "Asus WL500GP v2" and all your additional implemented features work perfect !
    It saved me a lot's of time and money for the "headeach pills" ;)

    In combination with a "Linksys WRT54GL" (1.27vpn3.6 release) it's a fantastic and easy solution to implement a stable budget-priced VPN connection.

    In the near future i am looking forward to add a "WRT610N" to a new branche office.

    I tested the Router at home but ...

    Linksys Original Firmware (latest)

    .) samba & ftp - works but not stable & poor performance max 8MB/Sec / 4 MB/sec
    .) user mangement is a mess ...
    .) Printserver support
    .) etc etc

    The DD-WRT Firmware "dd-wrt.v24-14311_NEWD-2_K2.6_big.bin" "2010-04-23 / 6,81 MB" works stable but lacks a lot's of features.

    Hi TB,
    This might be a known problem with iptables not working??

    Running the latest b16 on a Asus RT-N16. All good except my bandwidth per IP iptable scripts don't collect any bytes per IP.

    Been using the scripts for a few years with your 2.4 firmware - no problem.

    I switched to EKO big DD-WRT firmware and the scripts work.

    I have the output of "iptables -L -nv --line-number" for both firmwares.
    And I can give you the scripts.

    I can't be the only one with the problem because the "bandwidth per IP" scripts are pretty standard.

    Speed Issues via Samba

    I have an attached USB Hard drive (1 TB WD MyBook) currently formatted ext3 attacked to my RT-N16 with Beta 16. I have noticed that when attempting to access the drive and transfer from it via Samba speeds are painfully slow (See Image below), I have tried both windows 7 pro as well as Ubuntu 10.4 using Samba with similar speeds. On a lark I turned on FTP access today and noticed that speeds were significantly better via FTP. I was wondering if anyone else had seen this issue or have a resolution to it.

    Thanks,

    Hi guys,
    I just moved from a WRT54G running stock Tomato 1.28 (and every other version before that) to running the ND USB mod (build 47) on a WRT160n v3. All in all it was a very smooth transition, and everything is working just as it was before. I think.
    The one thing I'm having problems with is allowing the ICMP ping in the Firewall, which I need enabled to run an IPv6 tunnel. I've ticked the box and it seems to be working but whenever my IP address changes (as it does fairly often) and I update the tunnel endpoint to the new IP, it seems like the ICMP request fails. This never happened running the "old" Tomato on my WRT54G.
    So I guess my question is, are there any differences in this firmware that would explain this behaviour?

    http request box: cnn.com$

    It is mentioned here http://www.polarcloud.com/tomatofaq#in_the_access_restriction_page that regex style ^ and $ should work. That does not seem to work. I am certain that this did work in the past.

I have been running olegs for years and now recently the 'advanced' version they ran out of google.code. Wow what a difference in speed, im actually maxing my connection now, for the first time. Also the configuration of the router has almost only been a pure joy.
