    Shibby, 101 works wonderfully, I was waiting for this one so I can upgrade my customers.

    Now, two requests for future builds:

    DHCP IP Range: Can you set as default .51 - .100? It doesn't cost must changing them but I'd like to have the first 50 IPs for static DHCP purposes. Every time we need to upgrade the firmware some peripherals get a new IP and memorize it even after the router restarts, it's like they have a DHCP lease by theirselves ...IP printers for example.

    Advance Wireless / Transmit Power: Can you set as default value to 0? It works better than 42.

    Again, no big deal if you like better how it already is.

    Thanks.

    Shibby can you add Toastman QoS? It is better I think - better performance and settings...

    I have v100 installed....do I have to clear nvram after installing v101?

    Probably not. Try, if you run into problems you can always do it then.

    Signature? Signature!

    Hi!
    Still don't understand is it right that traffic
    between 208.67.220.220:443 and WAN-IP
    has "WWW" QoS class priority.

    With "old" DNScrypt DNS traffic always had "Service" priority...

    Could somebody explain to me should I change this for reduce delays for DNS traffic?

    Thank you.

    P.S. I'd like "101" very much. Thanks!

    Seems to me that for USA
    maximum for 2.5 is ~56 mW (~17dbm)
    and for 5GHz is ~42mW (~16dbm)
    and even with 0mW (31.75dbm=1496mW(!!!))
    we will have no more that 56 and 42mW.
    because we have Regulatory Limits and Board Limits
    and seems to me too that not so easy to hack these...

    So...if we setup 0 and country USA we will have ~56 mW (~17dbm) for 2.4 and ~42mW (~16dbm) for 5 as default? It's ok with me, 56 better than 42 IMO.

    What if we change country keeping 0? I remember Toastman was talking about Singapore?

    I'm usual user and may be do mistake.

    But seems to me you are right for Singapore
    we will have maximum 112mW or 20.5dBm on 2.4GHz
    and 89mW or 19.5dBm on 5GHz.

    Or other words "Singapore" and "0" in "Transmit Power" will give you MAXIMUM level of signal.
    You can see it in real air using inSSIDer and measure RSSI.

    P.S. This is my opinion and I repeat - may be it is wrong.
    P.P.S. In this case important don't use illegal channel for country where you are located.
    The power doesn't important because nobody know about your antenna... even FCC.
    P.P.P.S. I don't care about the output cascade of transmitter because it will reduce power
    and temperature automatically... I think.

    Thanks shibby for another great version! 101 ;)

    Is there any posibility of having the ipv6 on the vlans too? from version 8x or something and after ipv6 stopped working on vlans.

    Thanks

    eahm LI Guru Member

    Yes, changed to Singapore and it's stronger. Wife's laptop went from 57 to 52 RSSI.

    ...still, Shibby should leave 0 as default.

    great -many thx. I am running the wlan with SINGAPORE and preable SHORT" since shibby95 and have better TX/RX. However I have set the power to 43. So to understand "Arcan" right -I should try 0 ??
    What is the equivalent to "0" in mW --> really >100 ? Will this not overheat the chipset ....

    Posting this again, as I didn't get a response from it in the MultiSSID thread.. I think this is a pretty important issue, because the wireless MAC filters are not seperate! They are combined between main wlan and virtual wlan.. Not good. I want my guest SSID to have encryption but not MAC filtering, whereas I want my main SSID to have both. This issue is present in the last several shibby builds as well, and in the most recent 101 build.

    My friend came over yesterday and wanted to connect to my guest (virtual) wifi, but he couldn't, because I have wfilters in place on my main wlan (which I don't want him to connect to)

    As a solution for my post above, I can do the following in SSH, but I have to do it every time I make a change on basic-wfilter.asp so that the changes don't propagate to the virtual wireless interfaces:

    nvram unset wl0.1_macmode
    nvram unset wl0.1_maclist
    nvram unset wl1.1_macmode
    nvram unset wl1.1_maclist
    nvram commit
    reboot

    Once the router comes back online, anyone can connect to my virtual wireless again, but not my main (unless they're on the wl0 or wl1 allow list)

    101 is really running perfect - however need to comeback to GhaladReam. Not everybody uses MACfilters on VLAN. For those how do, the only logic scenario is with "main SSID". For guest /even for children network it is not applicable.
    So this FIX is needed to restrict this MacFiltering only to MAIN.SSID. Would be great to see an response from shibby about his opinion and if he intend to include this in a following version.
     
  21. GhaladReam

    GhaladReam Network Guru Member

    Totally agree - 101 is probably the most awesome version to date :) Amazing work shibby!

    That being said, I was the original reason for toastman implementing this "fix". I gave him the idea to have MAC filters on the virtual interfaces as well, however he didn't implement it the way I thought he would. I was thinking more of separate wfilters pages for each wl0.1, wl0.2, wl1.1, wl1.2 etc... Instead he made the main wfilters automatically propegate to the virtual interfaces -- counter intuitive :confused:

    I have been curious on why use MAC filtering in this scenario at all? you have your main AP (your LAN and WLAN) which is password protected, and you have your guest wireless lan which is hopefully password protected as well, so why would you need to filter MAC addresses? All you do is not give out your main AP wireless password, and your guest won't be able to connect to it, would that not 'filter' users from using your main AP? And so long as you have iptables rules in place that restrict your guest segment from your main segment, the guests shouldn't be able to even see your LAN, they would only be able to use the internet.

    MAC filtering for security isn't all that secure, MAC addresses can be spoofed..
     
  23. GhaladReam

    GhaladReam Network Guru Member

    2 words: extra security. "All you do is not give out your main AP password" <-- That would be in an ideal world wouldn't it? My setup is what you describe above. My virtual SSID is on a completely seperate, segregated vlan (for guests) than my main wlan + lan ports. However, I have sensitive information on my main LAN that could be accessed should someone somehow get a hold of the main wireless password. I don't 100% trust everyone who knows my main SSID password not to "acidentally" give it out. To get around this, MAC filters are an extra layer of security should someone try to connect to main SSID who shouldn't. 99% of the users who connect to my network(s) are not computer savvy, so they would just assume the password they were "leaked" was wrong if they were to try to connect to the main SSID and it just didn't work. Also, the bandwidth of my virtual SSID is much more limited than the main, and someone who wanted more bandwidth and knew the main SSID password could just connect. I realize there are ways of spoofing a MAC, so if someone knew the main AP password and how to spoof a MAC which is allowed in, they'd still be able to connect, but as I said 99% of users who use my network are not savvy, and the ones who sort of are, don't know about spoofing and wouldn't bother trying.
     
  24. lefty

    lefty Networkin' Nut Member

    MAC filtering is more for wired computers, where you don't need a password and can just wire up to someone's router, i could see its possible use there, but on a wireless connection that requires a password i just don't see it, and if you don't 100% trust someone why would you give them your main AP lan & wlan password anyways (or even guest access for that matter)? And you say - 2 words: extra security. "All you do is not give out your main AP password" <-- That would be in an ideal world wouldn't it?

    Yes it would, but consider that i can spoof a MAC address alot faster than i can brute a WPA2 AES wireless password and since 99% of the users that connect to your network aren't tech savvy enough to figure any of this out, i wouldn't consider it a concern. Just my opinion, i was curious as to why you use it, but to each their own.
     
  25. GhaladReam

    GhaladReam Network Guru Member

    While both of our points are valid, I think we can both agree that it is still a flaw that the wfliters are not seperate for main wlan and virtual wlan. The question of their usefulness is another matter entirely :)

    Also, I meant to say teaman in my post earlier not toastman.. I always get those two mixed up!
     
  26. zong

    zong Serious Server Member

    hay what a big discussion :). We should not discuss about MAC-filtering and if this gives extra security. This is an old and long discussed point. However for THOSE who want to use this - the only scenario I see is for "mainSSID". Not sure if the EXTRA WORK is needed to select this per wfilters pages for each wl0.1, wl0.2, wl1.1.....
    is needed. Not sure what/how teaman implemented.

    For me an "extra button" PERMIT ONLY THE FOLLOWING CLIENTS (wl0 on main SSID only)
    and PERMIT ONLY THE FOLLOWING CLIENTS (including Virtuell Wireless)
    The point is - without this, the whole wfilter implementation in combination with VLAN is useless. You may BLOCK some MACs for all VLANs, however you will newer allow specific MACs for all :))
     
  27. GhaladReam

    GhaladReam Network Guru Member

    Even 1 little checkbox on the basic-wfilter.asp page that says "apply filters to virtual interfaces" would be an improvement at this point, but completely seperate filters altogether on advanced-wlanvifs.asp, or even as a tab on basic-wfilter.asp would be the most ideal solution. Unfortunately I lack the skills to implement this...

    Hi all, I am from Singapore. Today, I would like to share with you all the way to boost the wireless signal to an ultimate strength.

    1 ) I set: Country / Region to Singapore ( Of course :) )
    2 ) Beacon Interval: 50
    3 ) Fragmentation Threshold: 2306
    4 ) Frame Burst: Enable
    5 ) Preamble: Short
    6 ) RTS Threshold: 2307
    7) Transmit Power: 400 ( I set to this option because I have a laptop cooler with 3 fans beneath my router )
    8) Interference Mitigation: WLAN Auto with Noise Reduction
    9) APSD Mode: Disable
    10) Channel: 12 for 2.4Ghz and 161 for 5Ghz
    11) Channel Width: 40 MHz

    The rest leaves unchanged / default. I set the same options for 5Ghz band as well. The result that I get is quite surprising and the router also run fine for 2 months without any crashes.
    By using inSSIDer. The signal strength has gone up from -45 RSSI to around -31 RSSI for 2.4 Ghz band. While the 5Ghz band, the signal strength has increased from -64 RSSI to about -50 RSSI.
    As compared to my Ubiquiti Power AP N, which is set to 1 W / 28dbm - USA, when I set the channel to 12 for Asus RT-N66U. It has shown a better signal against Ubiquiti. However, when I set to other channels, like 11 or 6, the signal strength decreased to almost less or equal to Ubiquiti's. May be due to my neighborhood interference on common channels ???
    I have no idea why the results were so different. Can somebody try and let me know your results ?

    P/s: Please backup your setting before you try any of the options above. I am not responsible for any damages to your router. Try it at your own risk.

    2.4Ghz 40Mhz? No, no, no.
    I don't use 5Ghz but yes, 40Mhz for 5Ghz works well.

    I just setup Singapore and 0 on Transmit Power and everything is fine for me.
     
  31. zong

    zong Serious Server Member

    dear GhaladReam,
    I try this "unset" and YES have ACCESS to guest network // still with blocked MACs on MainSSID.
    To better understand this - why we need to unset wl1.1 ?
    From my understanding the "mainSSID" is wl0 (eth1) bridged to br0.
    My guest (seperate network) is wl0.1 bridged to br1. More virtuell networks would be wl0.2 etc....
    ---

     
  32. zong

    zong Serious Server Member

    Maybe I found the answer myself ...
    So wl1 and wl1.1 is the 5Ghz band (which I not have with my N16).
    So I think I should leave it out -meaning no sense to unset this with 2,4GHz only.
    CAN SOMEBODY CONFIRM :)

    PS: to zbeyuz
    I cannot confirm that changing Beacon Interval and Fragmentation T will increase the signal/ throughput.
    Maybe in a big city with many other networks you will see benefits with lower Beacon I and Interference Mit = auto with noise reduct.
     
  33. GhaladReam

    GhaladReam Network Guru Member

    You are correct. wl1.x is the 5Ghz virtual interface and wl0.x is the 2.4Ghz virtual interface. If you only have 2.4Ghz, you don't need to worry about nvram unset wl1.1_macmode and nvram unset wl1.1_maclist.

    I'm trying to implement source based routing to route traffic via VPN and non-VPN gateways. There are simple recipes out there that use multiple routing tables and ip rules to achieve this.

    However, ip rule doesn't work and I can't seem to add routes to any numbered tables:
    Code:
    root@tomato-airstation:/tmp/home/root# ip rule ls
    RTNETLINK answers: Invalid argument
    Dump terminated
     
    root@tomato-airstation:/tmp/home/root# ip route add table main 10.0.0.0/8 via 192.168.0.1 dev vlan1
    root@tomato-airstation:/tmp/home/root# ip route add table 1 10.0.0.0/8 via 192.168.0.1 dev vlan1
    RTNETLINK answers: File exists
    Am I doing this wrong? Does this work for others?

    firmware: tomato-ND-1.28.5x-101-VPN.trx

    With the newer builds of shibby there is also a "username+ password" option with CA key. I tick "username ONLY" with CA key.
    However (sadly) -I could not get it run .....
    Somebody knows what to ENTER under ADVANCED in "custom config" - I tried "tls-auth ta.key 1
    <tls-auth> x.x.x.x....." or just BLANK. (did not run for me)

    This comes from toastman's latest build, 7500.5. I hope you laugh your ass off:

    Code:

    TxPower is 127 qdbm, 31.75 dbm, 1496 mW  Override is Off
    Everything is default. and if those numbers are true, WOW!

    This has been covered many many times in countless threads. This message is in all modern tomato versions, and comes from the wireless driver. And no, it isn't true, the maximum power available is 250mW from the power amplifier used on almost all home routers, with only a few exceptions.

    A setting of approximately 60 gives maximum signal strength.

    Just think about this setting being a relative number and stop thinking of it as some sort of meaningful power setting, because it isn't.

    I know I've requested this before, I just didn't want it to be forgotten... I would LOVE e-mail alerts for the APC UPS module to alert me when on battery and off battery. I noticed that on the APC UPS Status page, there are 2 values: XONBATT and XOFFBATT, which have a date & timestamp of the last occurances of being on and off battery. Would there be a way to make a small GUI where we could add our SMTP settings etc.. for e-mail alerts, and a custom message, for when these parameters change?

    the RT-N16 should be able to handle 16834 just fine, in most cases the cpu would probably max out before the ram. although Asus do advertise it can handle 300,000 "sessions"

    Hi all guys. I installed for the first time yestarday this wonderful firmware (v101 AIO 64k) on my RT-N66U and I saw quite immediately its improvements over the standard ASUS firmware: the things I would like to ask for, since I usually connect a 2 TB hard drive to the router and seeing movies and TV shows on my TVs by ethernet network, is what would be the LAN settings for having the best IPTV settings on inbound network.

    Thanks in advance

    @toastman. THX -understood and will go back to 8192 for faster performance. Normally I have 50-100 connections counted and not using bittorrent. Was just an idea to handle the "error" described in "1245". After "reset" works fine with both settings (8192/ 16384)

    Hi shibby, I have fixed a bug in the Asus/Linksys Red Themes that had a broken UI in the QoS classification page making it nearly impossible to make new classifications and arrange the order to suit.

    the latest version of the css file can be found : http://www.LilPwny.com/downloads/asusred.css

    Please note that you will need to apply the changes required for the different asus/linksys logos.

    Thanks once again.

    P.S. are the forums in lock down mode or something? every time i come back to these forums my available options of communicating are getting worse and worse.

    A question:

    In switching from factory firmware to shibby firmware I realized that you must reset the nvram
    with the method that is known as the reset 30/30/30.

    After updating my E4200v1 to shibby I noticed that the upgrade page, there is a checkbox that allows you to reset the nvram.

    If this flag is active and i reloading the same .bin file, I get as a result both the update to the new firmware that resetting the nvram?

    or this reasoning doesn't work?

    How can I be sure that the reset is correct?
    Thank you in advance
     
  59. fubdap

    fubdap Addicted to LI Member

    Not sure I understand your question. If you upgrade and check the box, it will reset your router to default value. Any custom setting in your router will be gone. So if you want to test if the reset is working, make changes to your router and do nvram reset. Hope than helps.

    the firmware remains the same but I got the reset nvram
    without having to manually do the 30/30/30
    This because the router is located on different floors

    whats the difference in running RT-N versions on the N16 ? i thought RT-N was for added 5GHz support?

    102 RT-N Working fine on an E1550 and E900, thanks shibby, will donate again soon..

    @ Nitro - as far as i know, the RT-N drivers are more or less meant for newer units, not necessarily just 5Ghz support, but newer N units, where the K2.6 mips-r2 builds are meant for older N units, but as far as i know, you can run RT-N builds on older N units as well, such as an E2000 or E3000, its a mixed bag of results though, some say the older drivers are better, some say newer, but what i notice about the difference is the newer RT-N driver is bigger and takes up a little bit more ram than the older N driver, on some units you won't notice it to much, like Asus RT-N16 has plenty of ram, so its not so much a matter there. Most times i edit the E2500 RT-N build to work on my E2000, and it works fine, but i do notice it uses about 1-2 more MB of ram as opposed to the older k2.6 mips-r2 builds for the E2000, performance for me is about the same though..

    So AFAIK older units can use both k2.6 mips-r2 older N driver or RT-N newer drivers, but newer N units like E1550, E3200, RT-N66U, WNR3500L v2 have to use the Rt-N builds only, they can't run the older N drivers.. or they may can, but you'll loose some kind of functionality, like just one example for one specific unit would be the E4200 v1, you can run the older driver build on them, but you loose 5Ghz capability, with the RT-N build on that unit you have both 2.4 and 5Ghz radios working.

    The reason I use that firmware is madwimax support (Samsung SWC-U200), but I really miss some features present in other firmwares, like BT client, VPN or jffs support for optware.

    Is there a way to integrate madwimax into Shibby's firmware? Also, there are some other WiMax adapters that use the generic USB over ethernet (cdce) module, and would be great to add support for that as well.

    I would be willing to experiment with this, but I would need a guide or tutorial to start, as I've never built a router firmware before, but have good linux and kernel compiling experience.

    Hi shibby! thank you for the great version!
    only one question, the ipv6 feature for the vlans (br1 ecc.) will it be possible in any future release or it won;t be possible?

    thank you

    Hi Shibby,

    On my E3000, moving from v101 to v102 Big-VPN (1.28.0000 MIPSR2-102 K26 USB Big-VPN) broke my 3G connectivity with ZTE MF192 modem.
    I notice there were some changes regarding 3G in this latest build. Logs show some errors:

    Under v101 I get this:

    Code:
    Jan  1 03:02:28 Tomato user.notice root: 3G MODEM already found - using usbserial module
    Jan  1 03:02:32 Tomato daemon.info pppd[1118]: Serial connection established.
    Jan  1 03:02:32 Tomato daemon.info pppd[1118]: Using interface ppp0
    Jan  1 03:02:32 Tomato daemon.notice pppd[1118]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/ttyUSB2

    Jan  1 03:02:33 Tomato daemon.notice pppd[1118]: PAP authentication succeeded
    
    Whereas under v102 I get this:

    Code:
    Jan  1 03:09:06 Tomato daemon.err pppd[1941]: In file /tmp/ppp/wanoptions: unrecognized option '/dev/ttyUSB2'

    Jan  1 03:09:26 Tomato daemon.info dnsmasq[1863]: exiting on receipt of SIGTERM
    
    Reverting back to v101 build fixes the problem. Thanks for your help and great firmware...

    I am trying to flash RT-N13U B1 with tomato-K26USB-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-101-BT-VPN but it doesn't seem working. On firmware restoration, it reaches till 100% and gives out message " Success ! please wait till the system boots" but after that nothing happens and after waiting 3 min when i restarted the router i see that Asus stock firmare is still there. Could someone please help me where i am going wrong ?

    (Also tried with tomato-K26USB-1.28.RT-MIPSR2-101-BTgui-VPN but having same problem.)

    Shibby,

    I also appreciate and thank you for that, because I use the same version "AIO RT-N" for my RT-N16.
    With "RT" version my router has wireless trouble.

    Thanks again

    @kthaddock & Bozo29

    can you both confirm better wireless performance with RT-N. Can you still increase the "power" (say 43) and see better TX and RX ??
    --
    sorry -where to find the AIO (RT-N for N16)
    under (with usb FOLDER) I only see "tomato-K26USB-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-102-Big-VPN.trx"

    I have better performance but that depends what setup people have. Using different clients with good results.
    Tx power can be set at ~60mW after that power amplifier be suturated. RX doesen't be affected of power settings.
    RT-N - AIO, Shibby promiced this: "Heh i will compile AIO for you tomorrow" so we waiting. :confused:

    regards

    The problem with "RT" version was that wireless is interrupted from time to time.
    I understand though that Shibby solved this problem since the "095 RT" version.
    But I've no installed version "RT" for a long time because I am very pleased with how it works version of "RT-N"

    Running 102 AIO on RT-N16.

    So far no issues, thank you.

    running now RT-N version 102 on RT-N16 and WLAN performance seems to be better.
    I have had 108/162 or 162/135 and Q45 mainly with normal RT version .
    Now I have 108/243 and 108/216 with Q48 with RT-N. By testing with "speedmeter", I have a bit lower throughput in "upload" - but need to do some more test.

    No support - rt-n13u is has ralink chipset
    try dd-wrt or better wive-ng

    sorry guys - I switched back to RT build on N16. I did 2 hours testing and the TX /RX is more stable with the "old" driver and the measured speed also. Finally no mayor differences, but I can no longer state better performance with RT-N builds. With RT-N I got some better values in Quality also some RX was better but also some very bad figures. Often changing values - as already posted it seems to different (wlan sticks ,different interference etc)

    Not having this problem at all on 102. Been rock solid stable for me since I flashed it when it was released. Did you try resetting NVRAM?
