Tomato Shibby / ASUS AC66U / 5 GHZ problem

    Hello,

    I updated my AC66U from v110 to v112 and 5 GHz settings are not visibles (display is like in v110).

    I backed up my configuration then did a factory reset => ok 5 GHz is visible.

    I restored my configuration => 5 GHz is not visible.

    Does anyone have an idea please ?

    Thank you for your help.

    When you stay restored settings, do you mean manual input or from a file? You can't restore configuration from 110 into 112 - you need to enter everything manually.

    Hello,

    Restore was from a file.

    Commands made 5 GHz settings visible, problem solved (i will do some tests later)

    Thank you for your help Marcel Tunks and shibby20.

    Hello,
    Maybe a little problem. 5 GHz channel selection just propose auto (even if i do a scan). Is that normal ?

    you have to set country as EU. Only then channels will be visible.

    I switched to EU and it was correct.
    Thank you shibby20

    When you restore your configuration from a file you are resetting all NVRAM variables back to their saved values. If you're clearing NVRAM to cure a problem, restoring the configuration will simply put you right back to where you started from.

    Ok, I understand. Thank you for the explaination.

    No problem. That's one thing I miss from DD-WRT, in that their configuration file is basically a list of all the NVRAM commands - so you can open it up and edit the cfg as easily as editing any unix-formatted text file. But Tomato's appears to be a raw dump of NVRAM.

    Not at all. It's gzip-compressed text. The problem is that it's compressed twice for some weird reason. You can format and display it with
    Code:
    gzip -dc "file" | gzip -dc | tr '\n' '¿!¿' | sort -z | tr '¿!¿\0' '\n\n'
    Editing something however will be a bit harder, due to the null-terminated newlines in the original.

    Aha, no wonder I didn't figure it out. Double gzip... here I am, expecting people to code rationally, like a sucker.

    It's their new high performance encryption scheme. See? It must be working well, it did fool you :p
