    Thanks you for the response!

    Just to make sure, the tomato firmware itself has samba 3 and i wont need to add optware for that right?

    Also which optware package is the best one right now? And is there anything like frater's 'asiablock' script for tomato? or anything similar? or anyway to get that working on tomato? this is the main reason for me using his optware on dd-wrt otherwise i would have switched a long time ago...
     
  3. maurer

    maurer LI Guru Member

    yes, no need for optware samba 3.
    you can add any dd-wrt package to tomato or use its repository so you can use fraters asiablock.

    Great!

    Just gonna bother you one last time....i also have an e2000 and dont want there to bo compatibility issues with tomato and dd-wrt, so i would be putting tomato on that too....I am running that as a client bridge and just wanted to make sure tomato would be able to support running it in client bridge mode?

    I already upgraded to teddy bears build 54 and the defualt tx rate is 17...i know it was in ddwrt bcuz it was in dB and not mW....is it the same case for tomato? I was reading about toastmans post and he said it can go upto 60?mW? Also went ahead and installed mega optware but after running it doesnt seem to be mounting properly...My NAS and printer seem to mount correctly...connected to a hub. Optware is running off of a usb connected directly to one of the usb ports in back of the asus RT-N16. Any help on getting that mounted?

    Re: [Tomato] tomatousb firmware for E3000
    Hello-
    I have been using the following tomato version for about a month. Overall, good results:
    2.4Hz
    B/G mode only
    WEP

    5GHz
    N only
    WPA2

    I have not been able to improve my reception at the far end of my house by increasing the Tx Power. It stays about -75db with Insider on the 2.4 channel 3.

    The 5.0Ghz N comes around -85db and goes (mostly not visable).

    I want to increase the power for both channels as some of my devices are -20db worse (iPad / Droid X) due to weaker antenna. BUT the current build really doesn't improve power, i have tried from 50mW increments to 400mW but it averages -75db (2.4ghz).

    IS there a newer version build and does it properly work for the Tx Power setting? I have noticed in other forumes that the power gets reported past the defauls, but then says OVERRIDE =OFF (meaning we can't change it?)

    thanks.

    Hello Teddy_bear can I add a very simple feature request to your mod?

    Would it be possible to have (one or more) custom voice in the menu to be linked wherever the user wants?

    Perhaps jut above "About"?

    There are many usage for this, mine personally would be to point it to the excellent tievolu's piece of work from the tomato webinterface.


    Appreciated

    Hey guys,

    I just tried to install the latest version of this mod for wrt160n v3 (tomato-K26-1.28.9054MIPSR2-beta-Std.rar), unzipped it, and dd-wrt tells me "incorrect image file".

    It is my first time doing this, but I did everything as I was supposed to do, the router is responsive, I'm accessing dd-wrt...

    Does anybody know what could be the issue?

    I just checked my install version and I am runing build # 9046 (Tomato Firmware v1.27.9046 MIPSR2-beta14 K26 USB vpn3.6) and I noticed that the current build is 9054.
    My question is , can I just do a firmware upgrade without erasing all data in NVRAM memory?

    Question about finding latest firmware version.

    I have an Asus WL-500W and the current firmware version I am running is 1.28.9052 MIPSR1-beta23 K26 USB vpn3.6. I am trying to figure out if there is a newer version of this firmware available. If so, is there a single place that I can go to in the future to check for updates instead of going through hundreds of forum topics and pages? Thanks for any and all information!

    the newest released verstion is build54. You can also use build pre55 (from Tomato GIT) by Victek, Toastman or me.

    Don't worry, someone must have made an error uploading git data and deleted some of the heads. Mostly they've been restored. Where Fedor is or what he's doing, is his own business, though I expect he'll be back..

    Ye I was also curious about future of tomatoe. Anyways, the new transmission doesnt work well for me (ul speeds) and I was wondering if there is some way to hold back packages from update/upgrade like you can do with aptitude/dselect etc. Thanks in advance.

    Hey there,

    I was looking through the repository and found quite a few builds for the e3000, would anyone be able to explain what exactly changes between then to make the selection a little easier?

    Hi,
    I have a WRT610N-R2 with Linksys firmware. I would like to upgrade to a Tomato firmware release, probably Toastman. Would the Toastman release tomato-K26USB-1.28.7481MIPSR2-Toastman-RT-VPN.trx be a good version to use with the 610N-r2? If so, the procedure for the upgrade would be as follows: hold reset for 30 secs to clear NVRAM, use the Linksys Admin page to upload the tomato firmware, and then hold the reset again for 30 secs. Afterwords, select a static IP on your pc (should this be a 10.xx.xx.xx address?) with a gateway address of 192.168.1.1 to be able to access the Tomato gui page, where you could then activate DHCP and reset your PC's settings back. Oh, and I am currently using a Motorola Netopia ADSL router in bridge mode to interface to the Linksys, accessing it via a static internal IP.
    Thanks for any pointers....

    Myopenrouter has a nice guide to install tomato usb. First you install dd-wrt then tomato. I dont know what version you need for your router though, or even if its supported.

    Is teddy bear still actively involved with tomato? I do not see much traffic in this thread anymore.

    ncfoster Networkin' Nut Member

    Or in the alternative, is there some new thing that people have moved to? I can't say that I have major complaints, but to me the whole point of using 3rd party firmware is to make sure that I know I am not using a dead-end product which might be lacking the latest security and bug fixes.

    though, in all the test I've performed Toastman's was the least stable of all. He's testing a lot of new drivers and features, I need a stable fw for customers.

    meazz1 was concern about lack of updates from Fedor, so he/she was pointed to Toastman's version. But if you want "stable", is build 54 from Fedor stable for you? There are parties that are always chasing for the latest and greatest even if there's nothing broken with the previous version. If there is nothing wrong with the version that you're currently using, don't try to fix what is not broken :)

    In fact Teddy Bear posted new updates recently, according to Toastman's posts they are in his BETA builds right now. Not sure about the other modders.

    I just joined this site to see what is around, and I must say the offerings from these developers is absolutely unbelieveable.

    shibby20 Network Guru Member

    mods based on tomato-RT are stable in my opinion.

    mods based on tomato-RT-N (new broadcom drivers, supported, RT-N10U and dualband for E4200) are unstable, untested and this is high experimental BETA version. People want new broadcom driver well we (toastman and me) was compiled RT-N. If is unstable for you, please use the previous version.

    Hi everyone, I just picked up an RT-N16 to replace my WL-520gU running DD-WRT. I figured it was time to try Tomato since I've heard good things and it seems that it's easier to use NAS. Anyway, I got Tomato up and running (tried both build 54 and 51) but the wireless is terrible. Dropouts are every couple of minutes. It's completely unuseable. I've read through the thread and it seems a lot of people have issues with Intel cards, but I'm not using any. For now I went back to the WL-520gU running DD-WRT until I'm able to figure something out. Also noticed the range was much worse with the RT-N16 on Tomato compared with the WL-520gU running DD-WRT. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    I had high hopes for this router and spent considerably more than what I paid for my WL-520gU, and thus far, I am pretty disappointed. Thanks for any help.

    Hello
    I hope I may here also a question to ask a non-Linksys products...

    I have install "tomato-K26USB-1.28.9054MIPSR2-beta-Ext" on my new "Netgear WNR3500L" - router.
    I can read/write on the mounting HDD via FTP Port 21 and Total Commander.
    How can I read/write directly from Explorer of Windows 7 OS to the HDD on the router?

    Sorry for my bad english.

    The versions you installed have not been updated in over a year. You need to look for versions built by Toastman, Shibby or Victek.

     
  46. Toastman

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    msb - Just checking - did you erase NVRAM and reconfigure after flashing with Tomato? It does rather sound like old configuration files may be messing things up. The builds you mention may be quite old, but they weren't inherently unstable ;)

    Let's just say that most people don't have the problems you are experiencing, so that kinda points to the way you have it configured.

    I'm a little confused with the toastman builds. I have a belkin f7d3302 and have setup tomato-F7D3302-1.28.7494.3MIPSR2-Toastman-RT-Mini.bin.
    Does this mean I can't try other builds without the f7d3302 reference, such as tomato-K26USB-1.28.7494.3MIPSR2-Toastman-RT-Ext?
    Thanks for any advice.
     
  49. Toastman

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    I'm confused that you are confused. You have a F7D3302 router. You have a build there that is clearly labelled F7D3302. What's the problem? Might it just be possible that it's the best build for that router, and that the others just might not be suitable for some reason? Perhaps there's a reason for a special build for the F7D3302?

    You might be able to flash the other builds. Try one by all means. It may be too large and may not flash, or it may not run. The LAN ports may be configured wrongly. At worst, it might brick your router. Be sure to have the necessary recovery tools available.

    BTW - this is actually the wrong thread - it's for Teddy Bear's stuff. Same applies, though.

    any chance to update this to Linksys WRT350N ?? i really like the router but without tomato is a total crap.
    Someone please tell me, can i use it with the 310N version ??

    this appears to be a problem with the openssl makefile(s). I'm not sure why it's only showing up on ubuntu (some versions)?

    have a look at src/router/openssl/apps/Makefile - there are two lines E_OBJ and E_SRC with about half a dozen files listed, then right below that, two commented out much longer versions with a lot more files in them. uncomment the longer lines...

    I also had to add ts.o, ts.c and also 'ts' to the E_EXE line a little earlier in the file... then I had to manually build src/router/openssl/crypto/ts before openssl binary would build.

    was working with teddy_b to try and get it fully supported but he seems to have other things to take care of.
    he had sent me a beta build that successfully boots and loads so the web interface is accessible, i'm putting a link here in the hope that others can see what can be done making it work properly with newer builds

    https://dl.dropbox.com/u/24543022/tomato-K26USB-1.28.9052MIPSR1-350N-beta23.06-Ext.bin

    MD-5: 72356108E6374BE3E6255A077E2EA585
    can be flashed over dd-wrt or linksys fw, one thing to remember is that any change that requires a reboot the router will not reboot on its own, if you have a serial cable connected you will see that it is waiting for a process to terminate but you can power cycle the router and it will come back up. hope this helps with development and as always i am available to test. :)
