    ..Explain.. do you have a WRT54GL and you see the isp concentrator information?

    Thanks Victek. I flashed the 1.1ra on RT-N66U and one thing I still have problem is the "Recent Web Searches ". I enabled both "web site (300)" and "Web Search (200)" monitoring, and only "web site" monitoring shows the content and the "web search" monitor shows nothing. This happens for the last few builds.

    is there no "ra" build for the 4200?
     
  5. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    Not yet, investigating the issue commented by 4char, then I'll release a patched version ... again ;)

    I also thought the fact that no searches were appearing in 'Recent Web Searches' was not right I was giving it more time as just one pc was being monitored.

    yepp
    i have both an RT-N66U and an WRT54GL v1.1 with thor mod
    if something is strange i put the gl on and look if works there :)
    (and i am always amazed how good the old device performs, it can handle 50mbit pppoe)

    Recent web searches are working here. RT-N66U with 1.1ra. Cable modem in office environment. Searches are showing in the list.
     
  9. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    thanks hawkmat, the issue is related to one service started two times in one specific configuration ;).. are you connected through dhcp (I think it's) or pppoe?

    hawkmat Networkin' Nut Member

    Hi Victek! I have a static IP connection provided by our cable company. This is a business service 50/5. Cisco Cable Modem DPC3825 in bridge mode. RT-N66U with 1.1ra.

    Hi everyone, may I whether an old Linksys E3000 router is capable of fully utilizing a 200Mbps/200Mbps download/upload fiber network for a group of 15 users?

    I've been using E3000 with TomatoRAF for a normal ADSL line for quite a few years, but not sure whether it can handle such a high speed -- I mean fully utilize it.

    Or must I get a Asus RT-N66? How about E4200?
     
  12. Elfew

    Elfew Addicted to LI Member

    You will get higher speed but - with stock firmware you will get the highest throughput because of ctf

    vlads Serious Server Member

    @victek - just got build r loaded on a Linksys 3200 and for the life of me can't get the second radio (5GHz) to work.
     
  14. hawkmat

    hawkmat Networkin' Nut Member

    Hi Alexlau! The E3000 with Tomato will not run 200/200 at full speed. Running Tomato very basic and you will get about 130 Mbps. Turn on QOS and that will drop to 65 to 70 Mbps. Switch back to factory firmware and it will be just capable of running at 200/200. Even a RT-N66U with bare bones Tomato can only do 150 and maybe up to 200 Mbps. Turn on QOS and it will drop to 100 Mbps. Use Asus Factory firmware on RT-N66U and it will run 200/200 fine.
     
  15. alexlau

    alexlau LI Guru Member

    I see, thank you!

    I'm really locked down without wired connection from the router to my PC, thus I have to use wireless.

    I'm planning to use Linksys AE2500 on the PC in company with the E3000, running on 5GHz, while other clients/laptops running 2.4GHz, would this max out the bandwidth? If not I may really have to upgrade to N66U or AC66U.

    Most likely I will use Tomato basics, without QoS. This 130Mbps is WAN to LAN or wireless single channel transmission? It seems a very big gap from the advertised 300Mbps ceiling.

    Awaiting for the new final release from Victek! :cool:
     
  16. hawkmat

    hawkmat Networkin' Nut Member

    Hi Alexlau! The 130 Mbps is WAN to LAN. The wireless throughput has a ton of variables but it will certainly be less. The big players like ASUS, Linksys, Etc. pay big bucks to Broadcom that provides them with software and technical support that allows them to run at very high WAN to LAN speeds. This is not available to Tomato and if is was it would most likely kill the things we love about Tomato. If you want to run your 200/200 connection at full speed just change to the free factory firmware and you'll be done. If you want to run Tomato at its highest speed I would get the RT-N66U and see how much of that 200/200 you can get. To learn more about the capabilities of the E3000 check out SmallNetbuilders excellent in depth review. http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/wire...0-high-performance-wireless-n-router-reviewed
     
  17. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    In fact.. if we build a version without QoS, Fastnat will be active and obtain same througput WAN_LAN as the factory firmware.

    If we were working with Atheros the problem was solved from origin ...

    edit: Asus started with tomatousb as base software for rt-n66 ... but with a primary QoS, their WAN-LAN speeds reach 780Mbps.

    But a real test has to be done in working conditions.. and Broadcom dies to 120Mbps easily in Fastnat with 100-200 concurrent connections....
     
  18. ilkevinli

    ilkevinli Network Guru Member

    Then lets dump QoS ..... :D :D


     
  19. hawkmat

    hawkmat Networkin' Nut Member

    Hi Victek! I thought that the Fastnat included in Tomato was an older version and that it did not work even when it is enabled. Sorry if I caused confusion.
     
  20. Elfew

    Elfew Addicted to LI Member

    Ok Victek, so add an option - kill QoS and enable Fastnat.... This option will disable QoS. Is it possible? Because everybody can make a choise and change this anytime.
     
  21. Elfew

    Elfew Addicted to LI Member

     
  22. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    Correct, mainly QoS have a big problem with it..
     
  23. alexlau

    alexlau LI Guru Member

    so even if I'm not turnning on QoS in Tomato, due to the nature of the coding/build, the existence of QoS itself still has impact on the WAN to LAN performance, with the absence of FastNAT?
     
  24. Elfew

    Elfew Addicted to LI Member

    I think Fastnat is not enabled in Tomato, so it doesnt matter... There is no GUI for this feature, no enable/disable option... This option was in misc. in builds from teddy or John. But my idea is not bad, is it possible Vic?
     
  25. Malitiacurt

    Malitiacurt Networkin' Nut Member

    It's not just QoS, it's ANY functionality that involves IPTable's FORWARD command. RMerlin mentioned it in another post. Eg. IPTraffic, webmon, etc.

    It makes Tomato really dumbed down to the point where it wouldn't be much different from featureless stock firmware.
     
  26. alexlau

    alexlau LI Guru Member

    Totally agree. DDNS, port forwarding, RAF features, wireless bridge are all used by me, so no way I'm going back to the plain stock firmware...
     
  27. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    :eek:

    .. As you know stock firmware have almost of these functions and fastnat (CTF) is working, RAF features (System information, Captive portal, Web server, HFS system access ..) don't conflict with Fastnat..
     
  28. alexlau

    alexlau LI Guru Member

    yeah but IP bandwidth monitoring, traffic chart, etc are not in their stock...

    I didn't list down everything that's used:p
     
  29. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    Agree.. and when these features are added CTF is broken. But it's public some more recent cases with other platforms (Qualcom-Atheros) with even worst scenarios (CTF broken when wireless 5GHz active) .. so, high speed internet connection is discovering manufacturers weakness. Just to break this interesting subject and get focused in this thread with Tomato RAF may we conclude:

    High Speed Internet (higher than 100Mbps) access requires powerful gateways/platforms. Any feature inspecting or modelling the inbound-outbound traffic may impact and/or degrade network performance ? ;)

    ... ;) Instead of releasing betas every day or two days I prefer to test previously, this test takes time, so, next beta will probably be released on Monday, then I have time to test along the weekend.

    If you have some plan for the weekend now you have no excuses, till Monday nothing ;)

    Hi Victek,

    Installed LinkSys E2500 Tomato RAF Firmware v1.28.9013 MIPSR2-RAF-V1.1o K26 VLAN-VPN-NOCAT and it does not have 5ghz wireless setup, I know you are working on other more important things but can you tell me if you are planning to add the feature to the E2500 firmware.

    Thank you

    Yes, it's planned on the final release, we're on Beta test, driver is the same used for RT-N53, E3200, Rosewill L600N, no problem.. will work in the final release. Thanks for the info since I don't have this unit to test.

    Thanks, btw.. ISP concentrator is Tomato RAF feature.. also used by Thor ;), I'm been investigating the bug, I did for the original ppp plugin in kernel 2.4 .. now as you know we shift to rp-pppoe ... and kernel 2.6 .. searching info.

    ps. BTW Encripted DNS added to Tomato RAF also since few hours ago, thanks shibby!

    I was running TomatoRAF on two Linksys WRT54G routers for a long time. I've used WDS setup between the two routers but never had stability. Although I've set watchdog script on both routers to reboot them if they loose connection from time to time one of the routers just stopped passing traffic through the Wi-Fi and it was frequently unable to reboot itself. Only power reset was able to revive the Wi-Fi WDS connection.
    #!/bin/sh
    ping_attempt=0
    while ( ( /bin/ping -c 1 192.168.x.x | grep -q '100% packet loss' ) && \
    [ $ping_attempt -lt '3' ] )
    do
    ping_attempt=`expr $ping_attempt + 1`
    /bin/sleep 1
    done
    if [ $ping_attempt = 3 ] ; then
    /sbin/reboot
    fi​
    Can I modify the above script or if you know another one that will just restart only the Wi-Fi interface /not to reboot the router/ when the ping is 100% packet loss after 3 attempts.

    Ok... I'm gonna ask a question that is probably gonna be weird for this setup, but...
    On android, there was a way they used Links to transfer stuff off to the memory card for apps that were still using data on the phone. A Requirement was needing to use EXT2 or EXT3 as a secondary partition. Now, couldn't that be done on here to... say... add on some content that I believe you mentioned you couldn't do with the E3000 and in general for any of the other routers (That at least either have a USB port or a card slot) if there was a feature that might be useful for others? Just a longshot idea (I do not have as much Linux experience).
     
  46. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member


    Yes.. apreciate your idea, if I understood .. the main program in the flash and let's name .. 'extended firmware' in the USB unit.. correct?
    Well.. everything is posible and this approach opens doors for 8MB flash routers with USB port to get future features in a separate 'usb flash' ;) ..

    Great!! Thanks.

    flashed tomato-E3000-1.28.9013MIPSR2-RAF-V1.1s.bin just now everything seems good...only difference I see so far is before on channel 149 lower (5GHz) was 270/300 now is 270/122 and changing constantly tx/rx all over the place.... by changing to channel 60 lower I have better signal its 300/300 solid with no fluctuations

    macgyver Reformed Router Member

    Thanks for all your work Victek! The only change I think could be responsible for that would be the updated 15.8 intel drivers for 6xxx cards then nothing else has changed on this end...great firmware seeing bursts as high as 80mbps on my cable modem never seen it that high before in my life ;) will do some more testing with wireless channels today and see what I find. All router settings have been the same on this end for all builds including wireless channel (all configured from scratch after nvram erase)

    I have more free NVram in your s build ;)

    It seems that BWlimiter is more accurate, I tested it in the morning. At least the upl/dwl speeds are almost same with my settings.

    I have an issue with my provider - ipv6 is bad, they have some problems these days so I cannot test it properly.

    Anyway I like new BWlimiter with easy to use GUI, good work!

    Yes, better, in this version I changed some nvram values, then you will recover some nvram space.
     
  57. zapoqx

    zapoqx Networkin' Nut Member

    Exactly. I would think this is quite capable if I remember correctly that Tomato is using linux kernel and since android is using linux kernel, then I would figure it could work. I don't know how it would be done in this case though (more on the idea of how to implement "Extended firmware" so that it runs), but I currently see that it would have to be initiatied on startup so I can see it would be unreasonable to try and force via CIFS to another location (especially if that CIFS location ever goes offline), but not unreasonable if it is mounted directly on the router. Just a thought.
     
  58. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    Yes, a lot of code to create the environment to search for extended location and also to create differents kinds of build when the maximal size is reached for each router model with USB.
    The main advantage is that 'big' packages may have the gui and common packages in the router firmware and executables in the USB. Yes, as you said the access must be quick son looking at CIFS is out of sense.
    Now I have to think, read and study ... in this case I'll observ the structure as 'optware inserted' but with gui and common files shared.

    Chipset
    Broadcom BCM4712 chip rev 1 pkg 2
    I've tried different Tomato versions and it was always the same problem. I thought it could be a hardware problem because the router often rebooted under load /mostly under heavy torrent traffic but not only/. I've tried with different power supply, firmware versions /incl. plane Tomato/, etc. It remained with this issue.
     
  60. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    Then try to start with this release,Tomato_RAF_1.28.121006a, it's the most stable version for your router. But keep in mind that as you name 'hardware problem' could be a 'capacity problem' in you router to handle big amonts of peers and other functions.

    Look for this release in my site, press Language tab in the top and you have access to all WRT54GL and MIPSR1 routers.

    I just added another E3000 to the test mix for WDS using "S" build and when both radio bands are enabled on AP+WDS everything stops working...if I use 1 radio only for AP+WDS it works but when I do both radios nothing works...is there any reason dual band AP+WDS shouldnt work?
     
  62. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    :) I never tried these 'exotic' configurations !!! Do you have any syslog to know what's happening when both radios works in WDS mode? What's the CPU load?.

    Thanks!
     
  63. macgyver

    macgyver Reformed Router Member

    I did some more testing and it seems if AP+WDS mode is enabled on both bands, WDS wont work...I had WDS set to the other router (WRT310N) using 2.4GHz which worked fine until I tried to add another WDS node (e3000). Once I change the 5GHz radio to AP+WDS on main router (E3000) it does not connect to the WRT310N or any WDS node on either band...if I disable AP+WDS on 5GHz radio then I can connect.
    If I use 2xE3000 for WDS it works as long as both radios are not set in WDS mode...looking into it more will check syslog and cpu load when things mess up...just hard to do during the day with work :eek:
    I have been using up to now WDS from E3000 to WRT310N on 2.4GHz and its been solid...

    Testing MIPSR2-RAF-V1.1s on RT-N66U, Captive Portal on br1. So far everything I've tested Works until QOS or BW limiter is turned on. Then Captive Portal br1 hangs, no splash.

    Once Captive Portal (br1) is turned off QOS works well on br0 and br1. Only hangs on br1 with CP on.

    BW limiter VLAN support is removed and offers no limiting on br1, works good on br0. CP hangs when BL is on.

    Thank You!
     
  66. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    Thanks CP is going to be replaced as I mentioned some weeks ago, also and due to VLAN mapping depending on switch chipset I'll restrict the posibilities for some features, as for instance now everything works great on RT-N16 but is not working for rt-n66 .. a little bit complicate to implement features for different switch platform.

    2nd. WDS is working correct in my test unit also for both radios at once.
    3rd. Test unit is RT-N16.
    4th. Please download release 'S' and feedback results with late release.

    Thanks!

    I am using the opendns servers for primary and secondary DNS....in my log it keeps showing what I posted so I disabled the proxy for now to isolate the WDS issues....I haven't had a chance to test that with PPPoE yet on a different unit to give feedback

    I am using release "S" on a pair of E3000 for testing and everything works fine as long as I dont enable AP+WDS on both radios..if I use WDS on 2.4 band and different 5GHz SSIDs it works, or if I use WDS on 5GHz and different 2.4 SSID it works, but dual radio WDS with a pair of E3000 does not work...using WPA2/AES. I don't know if it has to do with the fact that both radios use the same LAN MAC in some way...keeps popping up in device info
    In the meantime I also tried a few different builds of DDWRT as well on the 2nd E3000 and all end with same result using "S" as primary router.

    I have both radio WDS working just not to the same router...E3000 to E3000 WDS 5GHz and E3000 to WRT310N 2.4GHz... for both routers the LAN MAC show up under BR0 in device list then disappears

    It would be nice to be able to use 2xE3000 not so exotic...kinda boring but works for me...WRT310N has had better days :D I dont use WDS often and wanted something else to test so got another E3000 for fun :p but having 3 routers to do the job of 2 defeats the purpose of dual band :cool:

    I said 'exotic' by posible combinations and different scenarios I read in the forum, difficult to test when I build one version and also difficult to evaluate since we work with closed drivers. If the manufacturer (Linksys) don't provide WDS then it can be a lottery to achieve these features without some bug.

    Hats off to you for everything you do and all you have contributed...it can't be easy with so many different configurations...regarding the dnscrypt proxy it seems to be related WAN delay of 54 seconds after router is up...I have some extra hardware to play around with so Im happy to help test what I can and provide feedback...cheers to you...you deserve to win the lottery :)

    ok... let's try the following to check we are in the good direction... start your router with dnscypto off.. establish link with your isp... then go to basic and check dyndnscrypto checkbox and look for the log to see a welcome message .. I feel we have a 'race condition' and may be we need to improve the code to wait wan_up() and then start dyndnscrypto service to avoid a fight in services.c, I think we are closer, thanks for your help.

    ;)

    Edit, solved ... next beta will avoid time difference between ntpc servers...the problem is that router is 127.0.0.0 when dynproxy is enabled and we have to force IP ntp servers.

    Hi Victek, have a question maybe you can answer. This isn't specific to TomatoRaf, though does still occur with it. I have a PPPoE connection from my ISP. Every time I make any change within tomato, any change (not even relating to the PPPoE/WAN connection) and save, I loose the WAN connection for around two minutes. Tomato seems to want to disconnect and pull a new WAN IP every time I make any changes to the router and save. I can't remember if it's always done this (maybe it's supposed to), but I know for many of the more recent versions of Tomato it has. Just wasn't sure, so wanted to double check.

    Some changes in the settings requires a reset in the wan connection, but the elapsed time to restablish public IP is shorter (I have pppoe also), 10-12 seconds. In concrete changes where you see a 10 sec icon screen after save means that wan will be restarted. You can fix lower timings for connection using my last release.

    crypto initializing fine once router is up...its just a cold boot issue easy work around for now...Im seeing now WAN uptime is around 1.5 min after router uptime I don't recall it taking so long before but then I didn't check the uptimes

    great news looking forward to new build :D regarding internal code clean does that have anything to do with WDS by chance
     
  84. Victek

    No, with parallel compilation, nvram values clean, new pppd... but not with wds.

    I am sorry, I was on my phone and I couldnt check this ;)

    Build "s" is really good, I will stick with this build a couple of days. I will be far away from my home for next week, so I hope it will be all right ;) and there wont be any problem. (on my 2 RT-16n devices)

    If you don't use dnscrypt-proxy you can live with.. if yes then upgrade.

    Thanks!

    I dont use dnscrypt now. But OK, I am going to update my both units ;) it could help with developement!

    updated to release "T" on DHCP E3000....depending on NTP server selection it either finally times out and gives up trying (US NTP) or works eventually (North America NTP)
    Router time is invalid for much of the initialization for example openvpn which I noticed is v2.3 nice surprise ;)
    Much of the syslog errors are due to NTP errors and resulting lack of sync with vpn certs, dnscrypto certs, vpn fails initialization several times seems due to NTP...can send syslog if needed

    macgyver,
    Since dnscrypt is in the build the ntp server field in Time gui has no effect cause the router is now ip 127.0.0.0:40 (look at routes) and other ntp servers introduced in the nvram are responsible to set up the time to synchronize. In any case and it's sounds strange for me.. did you set the correct TZ?.
    If you want to use specific time servers change the server IP in the nvram values (ntp_server_ip). I fixed 8 different IP's, you can write the IP for the time servers in your region.

    The log I read is normal, every hour makes a new check of servers and certificates.. if you get a correct fingerprint then everything is normal.


    Refetching Certificates, good
    Certificate #1xxxxxxxx7 received, good
    Server Key genuine fingerprint is..., great !

    Thanks

    the first dnscrypto attempt failed on router boot but refetch worked (first authentication still fails) when I used "North America" NTP, when I tried with "US" NTP it kept trying to refetch and failed in the end. TZ is set :)

    Victek Network Guru Member

    Ok, understood, do you know if this setting was working in previous versions? ;)
     
  95. macgyver

    macgyver Reformed Router Member

    I never checked that setting before to be honest I always used North America NTP...only changed it after seeing so many failed attempts to authenticate certificate for proxy...at least with NA NTP it doesnt time out I guess there are enough servers in that pool (842)...authentication still fails a few times during router bootup but either succeeds or fails ...with PPPoE its not an issue at all only seems to affect this DHCP connection

    Great, go to change USA ntp servers then. I never used also... so, Thanks!

    Hello,

    I am using a linksys E4200 with last tomato raf version (1.1t) with an adsl modem in bridge mode provided by my ISP (movistar from Spain).

    My connection is losting in a few hours. Sometime 8 hours, at other moment with 2 hours.... the router lost connection and in a few minutes reconnect (1 or 2 minutes).

    I think that this problem is for adsl modem and not for router with tomato (i have used tomato for a long time and i have never problems) and i am looking for a adsl modem.
    I saw in amazon a TP-Link TD-8616 and TD-8716. The first is a modem only and the second is modem router. I think is better the only modem because i will use in bridge mode.

    What do you think?
    Is this tp-link a good modem for use with E4200?


    Thanks.

    Hi asturnata,
    Any dsl modem should work with E4200, the most important is to configure the modem as bridge and to be capable to keep sync with ISP hub. TD8816 is enough. Use ebay auctions to buy a second hand modem..

    Thanks!
