    The E3000 reboot loop issue appears fixed on the 1.3d release

    tomato-E3000USB-NVRAM60K-1.28.9014MIPSR2-RAF-v1.3d.bin
    I tested both the "after flashing, erase all data" box during update, and also the Restore Default Configuration "thorough" option, both of which caused a reboot loop with v1.3c. Working correctly now with 1.3d.

    Thanks!

    Cool!
    Vic was this (above) expected, or a by-product of other changes?

    I can confirm the restore / thorough option works now as well. The router rebooted 3 times during the erase but everything was up and waiting at 192.168.1.1 when continue appeared in the dialog box.

    Which one?

    btw. I had the chance to play with a friend's Netgear R7000 few hours today, gentlemen ... here is the output ;). He needed for FTTH vlan support, I can confirm it works but unfortunately there is more work to do, buttons, leds... so I have to return.

    Well I am happy both you, and Shibby have had there hands on the R7000. Nice to know within next couple month's, we will have a working tomato build for the R7000. I will be happy when most features are working, including QoS for all ARM build's.

    We just need to implement imq ctrl in kernel and then we can start working on it, until now all attempts was unsuccessful, just a question of free time, hours and help from beta testers. All you see and get free of charge it's wip and team work, not individuals ....

    Well I know you guy's will get it right when you have the time to do so, I just wonder about the NTFS driver that you guy's will use for the R7000. As I currently run DD WRT on mine, and get around 25MB's write speed's. Which is good enough :), I know getting a little ahead of myself.
     
  10. Edrikk

    Edrikk Network Guru Member

    Ah, by above I meant the previous post right above mine...

    The question was basically did you do something to fix / avoid the E3000 reboot loop issue, or maybe this fix "just happened" as a by-product of other changes between 1.3c and 1.3d... :)
     
  11. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    Ah, simple.. the issue can't occur when you flash from 1.3c to 1.3d .. but can occur if you flash from 1.2 to 1.3 ... it's the difference, didn't touch nothing in the code related to this matter, all models share same code.
     
  12. Edrikk

    Edrikk Network Guru Member

    Ah ok I see.
    Well, I guess everyone upgrading should go through it for the long-term betterment... :)
    Communication/documentation will be key I think...

    Hello, I used to have native IPv6 working fine with RAF, but now it seems my clients that are directly connected via a wired cable are not receiving RA (router announcements). The AP itself has a proper ipv6 address and can ping ipv6, but the clients aren't getting a router announcement. I see in my dnsmasq.conf the following is set:

    enable-ra
    dhcp-range=lan,::100, ::FFFF:FFFF, constructor:br0, ra-names, 64, 12h

    but when I tcpdump on my client, I dont see any router-announcements, and no auto configuration is happening. Does anyone have any ideas? I actually need ipv6 to work for my job :eek:

    Running: 1.28.9013 on a linksys e3000

    I am a E3000 user currently with 1.28.9013 MIPSR2-RAF-V1.2 K26 USB VLAN-NGINX installed. I have followed the discussions here and would like to start using my router again (removed due to HeartBleed). It seems a good version is now available to install on the E3000 (tomato-E3000USB-NVRAM60K-1.28.9014MIPSR2-RAF-v1.3d). The question is, how do I do that? Since it is stated above that the "boot loop" can occur when upgrading from 1.2 to 1.3
    Perhaps I should:

    1. TFTP 1.3d initially.
    2. Use Administrator Upgrade, then TFTP something if the "boot loop" occurs.
    3. If "boot loop", then TFTP 1.3d or,
    4. TFTP something else, but what?
    5. Wait to upgrade, but for what?

    Does 1.3d have the later drivers or the older ones? If older, should I wait for the later? Thanks and enjoy, John.
     
  20. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    - Just tick erase nvram after flash in the update gui, it should be enough.
    - 1.3d maintain latest drivers.

    I want to flash the build for e2000 but it's to big. Why you include USB & NAS modules in a router with 8MB flash and no USB port, that's a total overkill. These included features are never going to be used because there is no USB and they take all the remaining space from JFFS and I can't use other useful stuff.
     
  24. Mihai Olimpiu-Cristian

    Mihai Olimpiu-Cristian Serious Server Member

    @Krum:
    Maybe you can add that USB port, if it's true then you'll never use JFFS again :)
     
  25. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    WRT320N/E2000/E3000 are the same PCB screen.. E3000 include USB soldered into, if you will use the firmware then I can build one version dedicated to this model, np.
     
  26. Spyros

    Spyros LI Guru Member

    Victek that would be better, if someone has modded his e2000 with USB port he can use the e3000 build. All the rest of us will use normal e2000 build. For the moment I found no one and no info for e2000 USB mod so a full build is just a waste of precious flash memory.

    I just updated my E3000 to 1.3d and it seems fine. I have not tried using it yet - need to reconfigure the LAN. The flash took about 3.5 minutes and was uneventful. Thanks much Victek. Enjoy, John.

    @MrJman so no reboot loop for you going from 1.2 to 1.3 then? Very interesting!

    At any rate, as @Victek had mentioned, the new wireless drivers have been quite good for me over the last week or so, and haven't noticed anything alarming otherwise either... :)

    Lorenceo Networkin' Nut Member

    I put 1.3d on my N66u ~24 hours ago. Everything seems stable so far. Wireless speeds seem to be the same.
    One thing I have noticed though is when transferring files (SMB) from a gigabit client to a 100mbit client the router becomes a lot less responsive, with pings to the router + internet shooting up to 700ms.
    I tried this same procedure on my N16 which is still running 1.2x and it exhibited the same behaviour.

  40. Spyros

    Spyros LI Guru Member

    There is a dd-wrt 3.x version for broadcom routers but i tried only once and for a short time due to lack of ipv6 stuff.

    The new version is great, wireless is definitely better. I can easilly get speeds above 3Mb/s on crowded 2.4Ghz while previoysly i could get only 2,5mb/s. I 've noticed something else with previous versions i had 15MB free ram, now i have 12.5MB with e2000 small version.
     
  41. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    As I saw in other posts, dd-wrt can develop their own wireless driver since they have Broadcom SDK, but in any case I tested their latest versions and wireless performance is very poor... something I don't understand.
     
  42. Edrikk

    Edrikk Network Guru Member

    [RANT - Please ignore / delete as you see fit, I don't want to side-track this thread]

    Yup. dd-wrt is messed up because their lead developer has long since lost sight on things...
    There is no communication with the dwindling community, major functionality bugs are never looked at as the main driver seems to be to get as many new routers up as possible.
    Broadcom support has been pretty much dead since Eko left.
    Performance is just not there overall.
    etc. etc.

    BS needs to seriously revisit the way things are going.

    Team XBMC was heading down a similar path a few years ago, but they absolutely turned it around, and now the forums are lively, the system is much better for it, etc etc.

    Tomato has been doing awesome thanks to yourself, shibby, Toastman.... A LOT of it is really communication within the forums. People lose sight of that, at which point, (like dd-wrt) does it come down to one guy just doing "whatever", yelling at contributors on trac, and throwing random binaries out... No thanks.

    Something strange just happened for me on 1.3d. One wireless client (my laptop) seemed to lose connectivity, but its wireless was still connected. I thought my internet had dropped out, but my computer connected via ethernet was still working without issue.
    Looking at the router logs it appears one of the iOS devices (an iPhone) on the network somehow got an IP that isn't used at all.
    Disconnecting and reconnecting to the wireless resolved the issue on my laptop.
    After reconnecting my laptop I checked the iPhone mentioned in the logs, and it appears to be connected and working normally.
    The DHCP range is 192.168.2.11-192.168.2.200. There's nothing in the 10.0.0.0/8 range on my network.
    Code:
    May 5 15:36:13 Router daemon.info dnsmasq-dhcp[6051]: DHCPNAK(br0) 10.18.1.144 40:b3:95:XX:XX:XX wrong address
    
    Perhaps it's just a fluke event, with the iPhone somehow reporting the IP it has on its 3g interface. I'm unsure. If it happens again I'll post again about it.

    Victek Network Guru Member

    In my opinion there are some services that can be integrated and makes sense. Zebra update to Quagga is a good decision since zebra it's not maintained, tcpdump it's already in RAF but the most interesting from my view is the VLAN solution. Yes, I'll take a look and contact the developer. @Thanks for the information, I didn't see it.

    I wanted to report back on my 66u using 1.3c version. At first I had HORRIBLE wireless on 2.4ghz. I couldn't get more than .5mb down on all the ipads and ihones in the house (4 of them). A windows laptop was also not good but a little better. I did a wireless scan and moved from channel 1 to channel 11 (After a scan) and now I get my consistent 30mb down 6 up.

    I am upgrading my line hopefully in the next couple of days so i will continue to report back. Hope to get the 105mb internet.

    When your router is not supported supported (VLAN greyed window), then check this box, it allows you to integrate new routers with VLAN support, it was implemented by Teaman, in theory should work but I never tested.
    66 series don't have problem over 200Mbps...

    Hi Victek,

    I know I missed the great build-a-thon, but you seem to have updated builds for all the Belkin models except the 4301/8301 -- in fact, there's now no build at all available. I have a number of these, and particularly liked that your build could be flashed directly from the stock update page.

    Any chance you could put up a 9014 version?

    Step by step... let's release first changes... test, feedback, bugs, solving.. and when everything it's OK then go next phase. There is always a risk, doing step by step it's easier to test and solve. bwq518 have bugs in some sections (rip for instance..). Version 1.3e accumulates more than 18 changes till now... it's not a transition version, there are big changes.

    And another possibility (and this is an extremely likely/common one): power-saving capabilities of the wireless chip used on the client. Sometimes the OS will let you toggle certain capabilities (at either the driver level or the OS level), but other times there's nothing you can do about it. CPUs now have the same nonsense in them (C-states and P-states (two separate things), along with clock frequency throttling (also separate from the previous two)). All of this is driven by the same root desire: to save power (mainly focused on laptops, but the same technologies are used on desktops).

    In short: variable-throughput rates on wireless (for upstream and downstream), including values that change constantly, are completely normal in today's world. There are literally 9 or 10 possibilities, and most of them the user doesn't have any control over. If you want something that's constant/reliable, use a wired connection. I know that isn't what you (@nurofen) want to hear, but it's honestly the truth.

    I saw that the Linksys EA6500 is WIP as per one of the posts above. Any indication of support for EA6300 whether v1 or v2?

    Hey Vicktek just giving an update. The 1.3d beta on the Ausu RT-N66 has been running for over a week and haven't seen any issues. I haven't turned on IPv6 yet since I had some critical projects to complete but I will be enabling it this week.

    Is anyone having issues with mac clients on 1.3d? A macbook here running on the 5ghz wireless seems to lose connectivity at random. The whole time it says it's connected to the wireless, but pages won't load.
    Turning the wireless on and off on the macbook seems to solve it. I'm unsure if it's an issue with its OS or the router.

    I'm running 1.3d on RT-N66U and using a MacBook Pro as a client on 5GHz. I haven't experienced any issues like yours. My MacBook Pro is from 2011 and i'm on Mac OS X 10.9.2.

    This is with a recent macbook air. 2013, I believe. It's up to date software wise.
    It's not my computer, so I only hear about it when it stops working. Next time it happens I'll try ping the router and report the results.

    Edit: This is on a RT-N66U as well.

    I remember having similar issues some time ago but it was because of interference and bad signal. The MacBook said it was connected but there was no internet. I had a Linksys E3000 back then and bought the RT-N66U to get better wifi. If you click on the AirPort wifi menu on the MacBook while holding down the ALT-key you can see some information about signal strength etc. Maybe this can help you.
