    after successful ping, do this
    Code:
    tftp -i 192.168.1.1 put tomato-K26USB-1.28.RT-MIPSR1-112-BTgui-VPN.trx

    I can rename shibby's firmware name from .bin to .trx? And i have to do this at TTL=100 or it wont work?
     
  4. Mangix

    Mangix Networkin' Nut Member

    With most routers that i've dealt with, a ttl of 100 doesn't mean you can flash the firmware. Usually the bootloader needs to be stopped and the tftpd daemon needs to be started.

    A work-around for this is to erase the firmware after booting. To do this, type 'mtd erase linux' in tomato's shell. After that, the bootloader should have no choice but to start the tftp daemon. Whether or not the bootloader accepts the firmware is a different issue(my linksys E1000v2's bootloader does not accept shibby's firmware but does accept dd-wrt).

    Thanks guys, I took kthaddock's route and that worked well.

    Im a bit frightened of your method mangix, no offense, either the firmware is flashed after your way is done or the router's toast. Sorry but I think this method's a bit too rough for me :D

    Which wireless 5ghz driver is used in 107 and 108? I know 106 is Broadcom Wireless Driver 5.100.138.20.

    I dont see it listed in the logs

    Mangix Networkin' Nut Member

    same one.

    as for the mtd-write method, i've bricked quite a few routers that way. well, with dd-wrt. tomato might be different.

    ** Requesting Help for troubleshooting an E3200 with Shibby v104-112

    Issue: I flashed 104 - 112 onto the router, nvram erased before and after the flash, and found that the 5ghz band under moderate to severe load will just drop without warning. The only way to get it back up is to disable then reenable but there is a 50/50 chance a reboot is needed. I tested this by using my laptop to simutaneously send and receive a 10gig file from wireless 5ghz laptop <-> wired desktop. I also had a 3rd 5ghz wireless device connected at the same time.

    I restested using default linksys firmware FW_E3200_1.0.04.001_US_20120410_code.bin and the 5ghz band doesnt drop at all. Given that the official linksys firmware doesnt have this issue, and I have cooled down the router using an icepack while testing the 3rd party firmware, I believe the issue is confined with the 3rd party firmware/driver. I have also tested this same issue with vicktek's beta firmware for the E3200 5ghz with the same dropping issue.

    Note I am not blaming anyone here. I am just trying to figure out why a driver that works for Asus doesnt work for the linksys e3200, and if possible find a solution


    Is there a way to further diagnose this to see if it is fixable? I dont see anything in the normal logs once the 5ghz band drops. Is the asus wireless drivers the only wireless drivers available for 3rd party firmware?

    @shibby20 I think there is something wrong with rstats monitor when I use virtual wireless (RT-N66U and Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-112 K26 USB AIO-64K)
    my configure :
    Basic --Network --Lan
    Code:
    Bridge    STP    IP Address    Netmask    DHCP    IP Range (first/last)    Lease Time (mins)
    br0    Disabled    192.168.1.1    255.255.255.0    Enabled    192.168.1.2 - 51    1440
    br1    Disabled    192.168.2.1    255.255.255.0    Enabled    192.168.2.200 - 220    1440
    Advanced --Virtual Wireless Interfaces

    Bandwidth --Daily
    2013-8-19 16-20-36.png
    20130721-20130801, there is no rstat data, then I delete virtual wireless interface and readd the interface, I get rstat monitor back to work. But from 20130813 it doesn't work again. Then I cleared nvram and reconfigured the router manually on 20130816 and 20130817. When I add virtual wireless interface, the rstat monitor stop working.
    BTW, I use tunnelbroker's 6in4 static tunnel and dnscrypt-proxy, no qos, TCP Vegas enabled.

    I checked @Victek tomato-RT-N66-1.28.9013MIPSR2-RAF-V1.1y.trx, and get the same result.

    I have 200/20Mb/s but with this firmware i'm only reaching 125/20Mb/s on speedtest.com
    i've tryed another firmwares, like the Kong Builds on my RT-N16 and i reach to 186/20Mb/s

    Is there any suggestion to reach to 200/20Mb/s with the Tomato Shibby firmware??
     
  11. Marcel Tunks

    Marcel Tunks Networkin' Nut Member

    You'll get closer to your allotted bandwidth with Victek's latest 'beta', but without all of Shibby's features. I suspect that Shibby is focusing on the AC66U at the moment. Perhaps some of Victek's recent code optimizations will find their way into Shibby's firmware when he is less occupied.

    As always, any QoS, bandwidth limiter, or even traffic monitoring will slow things down regardless of the firmware in use.
     
  12. konax

    konax Reformed Router Member

    I'm trying Victek's latest beta and i'm reaching at 165/20Mb/s, but Victeck says:
    BW 193Mbps Download, 135Mbps Upload with up to 3.000 concurrent connections.

    i've disabled the Bandwith monitor and limiter, the IP monitor and the QoS and continuous at 165Mb/s

    I see the old duplicate WLAN MAC adress problem on the WRT54GL after NVRAM reset. All routers have the same WLAN MAC of 00:90:4C:5F:00:2A (google that and you will find several threads about it). When I click on the default button in Advanced-MAC adress it changes to the correct value. Would it be possible to correct that automatically in the next version?

    Unfortunately also needing to switch to victek's raf. Have 150 download. With shibby only get to about 80. With Linksys 1.0.0.5 I reach the full, but is very unstable. Needed to reset each day... With victek I reach 140. Guess I will do some testing and stick to this one. Wonder what causes the difference. Would be great if shibby would be able to remove the difference, really appreciate his firmware and all effort put in!

    What is this problem exactly with Intel cards using 5 GHz 40 MHz band? I do have an Intel card (5300), and do use 5 Ghz 40 MHz band on my router (E4200), and do have occasional problems but i'm not sure if they are the same we're talking about. What i experience is sometimes turning my connection on my laptop to "limited connection" and having no internet. I have to disable and enable the wireless card in device manager to get it working again. I thought it was probably the Intel card's fault (probably driver issue). Can this be the same issue you're talking about, is it a known issue? Is this fixed in those "new driver" versions?
    Thanks!

    thank you very much for the firmware! it has been nothing short of awesome.

    i very much would like to know where the official shibby support is located please, i was unsure if i would be welcome here since i now run asus. in particular i am looking for a line by line howto or help guide for the settings. prefer one geared for newbies please. i can't find anything for "start up parameters -m 99".

    thank you very much in advance.

    Having issues building this. the new toolchain binaries seem to be broken or something.

    Code:
    mangix@mangix-virtual-machine ~/tomato/tools/brcm/K26/hndtools-mipsel-uclibc-4.2.4/bin $ ./mipsel-linux-gcc
    bash: ./mipsel-linux-gcc: cannot execute binary file
    
     
  19. lancethepants

    lancethepants Network Guru Member

    Depends on the environment the toolchain was built in. Once when I had this issue, the toolchain had been built in Ubuntu with the lastest glibc, and I use Debian which uses an older version. You probably will have to build the toolchain for yourself.
    It's as easy as running build24.sh or build26.sh in the toolchain directory.

    Are you on a 32bit Linux distro? I had the same issue. Shibby's chain in git is 64bit now. Rebuild the chain or use a 64bit distro.

    I just built a 64bit VM. Really improved my build times.
     
  21. Mangix

    Mangix Networkin' Nut Member

    ah yes I was using a 32-bit VM. a 64-bit VM isn't really an option as my CPU doesn't support virtualization except for 32-bit programs/OSes. Good to know.

    Test download speed of PC-2 and PC-3, there are 4 conditions.

    Download Speed (Downlink Speed) of 1, 2 is OK.
    Download Speed (Downlink Speed) of 3, 4 is not good.

    1. With any firmware of NT-N16(A),
    Download speed of PC-2 and PC-3(with PPPoE) is OK.

    2. Stop OpenVPN Server and the firmware of RT-N16(A) is 065, 070 and 075.
    Download speed of PC-2 and PC-3(without PPPoE) is OK.

    [​IMG]

    3. Stop OpenVPN Server and the firmware of RT-N16(A) is 079, 083 or latest.
    Download speed of PC-2 and PC-3(without PPPoE) is between 9 ~ 14 Mbps.

    4. Start OpenVPN Server and with any firmware of NT-N16(A),
    Download speed of PC-2 and PC-3(without PPPoE) is between 9 ~ 14 Mbps.

    Shibby,

    It looks like Asus released a new firmware yesterday which contains a new Broadcom wireless driver to supposedly fix the 5Ghz 40 Mhz Intel card connection issue. Might we see this in a future NEWDRIVER build of yours?
     
  27. RMerlin

    RMerlin Network Guru Member

    Integrating that newer driver in Tomato will take more work than usual, since it's based on an entirely newer SDK. A lot of the work done for the RT-AC66U support can be reused to support this thankfully.

    @shibby20 Are you planning new release soon ? If yes, could you update usb_modeswitch datapackage ? I ordered Huawei E3276 USB dongle and it seems that support for it is in datapackage dated 2013-08-07. If I understood correctly from the http://repo.or.cz/w/tomato.git/shortlog/refs/heads/tomato-shibby-RT-N, you have older version included.

    EDIT: 03.10.2013
    Happy to say that I was wrong. Huawei E3276 is working with tomato-shibby !!

    Hello, I have an ASUS RT-N66U router with tomato-K26USB-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-112-AIO-64K.trx on board. I use 3G USB modem Huawei E171 (it's in modem-only mode) as a WAN in the settings. I checked all USB support (including 3G modem support) boxes in the USB and NAS page. For the first time I installed the Tomato it worked just fine (after reboot). There was solid connection. It had been working for two days or so, when I found out that there is no connection. For the first I rebooted it with no success. For the second I checked my modem directly on PC and it worked without any issues. I even reseted and restored the config from backup after multiple rebooting, shutting down and reconnecting procedures (with or without checking 3G modem box). Still no connection.

    There's just constant message "Connecting..." in the overview page.

    What steps should I make to solve this problem?

    PS Sorry for grammar, English is not my native language.
     
  35. fubdap

    fubdap Addicted to LI Member

    Not sure what the problem is, but when you do a reset (NVRAM erase) do not restore from saved/backup config file. Reconfigure manually (by hand).
     
  36. Artyom

    Artyom Reformed Router Member

    Thank you for the idea. I decided to do this (but without erasing NVRAM) yesterday.

    I managed to restore the connection somehow. It was not an obvious way. I did reset (without NVRAM erase) and then configured 3G connection manually again. It worked just fine after reboot, so I supposed that there must be some glitch in the USB device support. Then:
    1. I restored config of the Router (I have already configured my home devices and I don't want to configure Wi-Fi setting all the time)
    2. Unchecked all USB-support checkboxes.
    3. Rebooted the router
    4. Checked all USB-support checkboxes.
    5. Rebooted the router

    I think some options of these steps are unnecessary, but it highlights the idea. I hope it will work more than a few days. If not, I'll try to test the solution with less step count.

    i didn`t test it yet but when i compare RT-N66U (with driver 5.100 or even ND 5.110) VS RT-AC66U (with driver 6.x) then i see huge difference. RT-AC66U`s wireless signal is more stable and more powerful and speeds are better. Well i have i huge hope it`s a new driver 6.x "fault" well we will see soon :)

    btw asus latest firmware for RT-N66U is also now on 6.x driver well ... ;)

    The SDK6 driver on the RT-N66U is suffering from a serious signal strength drop (close to 10 dB). Asus are looking into it, pretty sure that would also affect Tomato if it switched to the SDK6 driver.

    I for one would be willing to test this in Tomato. Shibby, if you have an RT-N66U-64K-AIO build with the 6.x wireless drivers, I can test. While I'm expecting that the outcome will be the same (signal drops) I'll be able to confirm if it also happens in Tomato.

    Marcel Tunks Networkin' Nut Member

    If Victek successfully ports Tomato to ARM, then you will eventually see RAF on AC68U and Shibby and Toastman are likely to follow. Shibby seems to be focused on refining his firmware on MIPS architecture at the moment.

    Indeed. If Vic is successful, I will follow his lead. In fact, I will probably concentrate on the newer routers and/or architecture in future, because the existing builds are pretty much functional for most people anyway. We are likely to move towards cable and DOCSIS2 here soon.

    That is quite weird... How those "mobile broadband" and mdma software will handle those ? You might be right.. I really don't know. I just thought that every software just send those AT commands to modems and get the results.

    EDIT: eg. here i found some at commands which reads signal (rssi) information...

    Router-slowdown and loosing connection
    My configuration: I'm using a Tilgin HG1521 fibermodem in bridged mode and connect it to my Asus RT-N66U via DHCP.
    It has been a rock-solid setup up to and including Shibby-110.
    After 110, it has been nothing but trouble. (This also applies to Victek newer builds RAF 1.2/1.3, same problem with them)

    Let me try to explain my problem.
    Everything works great at first, but then after a couple of minutes, hours or a few days it eventually fails,
    I loose internet connection.
    At first I thought it was my router (n66u) causing the problem, but I could still logon to the router,
    but logging on took 2 minutes, and changing form one page to next in the router-gui would take 2 minutes as well.
    The whole router experience was unbelievable slow, and internet connection was lost, but the router-log showed nothing wrong. (as far as I can tell)
    I even tried another n66u-router, same problem!
    BUT as soon as I turned off my ISPs fibermodem, everything got responsive again. (But of course no internet connection)
    I power up the modem and then get good connection a couple of minutes, hours or days until it fails the same way again.

    I am now back on Shibby-110, and everything is running smoothly
    What could be the problem causing this slowdown and connection loss?
    Is something not compatible between the bridged-modem and the newer firmware revisions?
    Any tips?
    How can I troubleshoot this?

    FW: Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 MIPSR1-112 K26 USB AIO

    I experienced having assigned swap partition changing from active to inactive. This happens only in FW112. Using swapon -a will not make it active, only reboot will fix the issue.
    Went back on FW110 and observe status of swap partition, it has been running 1 day 4:45mins with no issue of inactive swap.

    So, if I'm reading the changelog correctly, the two main developments are... The new "bcm_nat" module, but it is not in the K26RT-AC builds. And the RT-AC branch is based on SDK6.
    What does all that mean? What are the advantages/disadvantages of these things?
    Sorry, am confused... :)

    Not tomato-RT-AC66U_RT-AC6x--114-AIO-64K.trx but tomato-RT-N66U_RT-AC6x--114-AIO-64K.trx

    i made subdirectories. Lokk one more time, should be easier now ;)


    We had tree branches: K24 (ND) and K26 was as one, K26RT-N (E4200, wnr3500Lv2, RT-N66U) with WL driver 5.100 or 5.110 right? :) And the last one K26RT-AC with WL driver 6.x and that i called SDK6. It supported only AC router: RT-AC66U and W1800R. But asus found a solution howto run new 6.x driver on RT-N66U. I cherry-picked this changes and now we have Tomato (SDK6) for RT-N66U with new wireless driver. It`s stronger and faster than 5.100 or even 5.110. A lot of connection issues was fixed. :)

    Now bcm_nat. This module can boost WAN speed +30%. It`s nice, but you can use BW Limiter or QoS when bcm_nat module is loaded. THis module works on K26 and K26RT-N. In K26RT-AC it doesn`t exist for now well i couldn`t compile it.

    Thanks for the explanation Shibby... just upgraded my RT-N66U to "tomato-RT-N66U_RT-AC6x--114-AIO-64K.trx" and the wireless does indeed seem to be faster. Thanks!

    @shibby20 - do you recommend Nvram erase for anyone with N66u upgrading from 112 to the new 114 K26RT-AC?
    Also please check your PM. Thank you for all your hard work.

    @fubdap - i always recommend erase nvram but if after upgrade all works fine and stable you can stay. If after upgrade something will not works or router will be unstable, then you will know what you have to do ;)

    @heebo1974 - i see you have E3276. Did you know, that v114 is ready to support this modem in NDIS mode? ;) If you want to know how to do this, please send PM to me.

    On a similar note, does the new driver support BCM5357/5358 (e.g. Linksys E900 & E2500). If yes, any chance for: tomato-K26-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-114-NEWDRIVER-Max (8MB flash)? Thanks!

    @shibby20 I just updated both my WRT54GL and RT-N66U to your latest 114 AIO build.
    However on the RT-N66U the receive rate of wireless N clients always shows 4294967.

    Note i did not clear the NVRAM on both routers because i did that when i did a fresh install of 112 and i have a huge list of static DHCP entry's and its a pain to re-enter them.


    Something else, on my WRT54GL the Wireless Client Filter works inverted.
    "Disable filter" and "Block the following clients" allow my wireless clients to connect.
    And "Permit only the following clients" will not allow clients from the list to connect.
    This is the case in ND-1.28.5x-112-VPN, K26USB-1.28.RT-MIPSR1-112-AIO and K26USB-1.28.RT-MIPSR1-114-AIO
    Right now the Wireless Client Filter list contains 34 entry's.
    I did not have this issue when there is only a couple of entry's in the Wireless Client Filter list.
    To me this looks like there something happening when there are to many entry's in the list.

    I've installed tomato-RT-N66U_RT-AC6x--114-AIO-64K (coming from 112). I did a NVRAM erase before and after and used the nvramdiff tool to reconfigure my RT-N66U easily. I did have an issue where I couldn't access the web GUI after setting my config because it wouldn't accept the password (both the default and my set password), but I was able to SSH into the router and reset the http_pw that way.

    Everything seems to be working fine, but I did notice that the device list is showing all the 5GHz devices as having a RX rate of 4294967. The TX rate is fine. Not a big deal, but I thought I'd mention it.

    Thanks for all your great work @shibby20 !

    That's strange. I just did a straight upgrade and mine's not doing that, mine's showing 450/450

    Looks like my issue was with the SDK6 WL drivers. I initially had used the tomato-RT-N66U_RT-AC6x--114-AIO-64K FW located in this branch: http://tomato.groov.pl/download/K26RT-AC/114-EN/RT-N66U/

    I switched to tomato-K26USB-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-114-AIO-64K FW from this branch: http://tomato.groov.pl/download/K26RT-N/build5x-114-EN/Asus RT-N66u 64k/

    Everything is looking good now. The reported TX/RX rates are meaningful again. :)

    The reported TX/RX rates you see on the status page don't mean anything, they go up when used and down when not.

    Well you have to admit that 4294967 Mbps is not realistic. It wasn't changing either. Just a static 4294967 Mbps no matter what I did. That's what I was seeing before I changed to the other FW. Now they fall within the expected 0-450 Mbps range and vary as expected.

    I can confirm this. I get 4294967 also. In addition, on the 'Status>overview' page the 5ghz wireless shows a channel width of 20 mhz but it is set to 40 mhz upper on the 'basic>network' page.

    114 Issue:

    114 RT-N builds won't boot on Belkin F7D3302/F7D7302 and F7D4302/F7D8302 routers. Tried NVRAM erase, no help. Using tomato-K26USB-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-114-VPN.trx. I don't have a free F7D8301 to test right now.

    Recovery requires booting back into the CFE and loading the .bin builds.

    114 RT builds work, but I've always had better results with RT-N.

    It's a module you have to start it manually.

    @jerrm - thx, i will look

    @ghoffman - as kthaddock said, just read changelog :) If you want enable bcm_nat everytime after start your router, you can put modprobe bcm_nat command to init script.

    little test of BCM_NAT.

    Router Asus RT-N66U + tomato RT-N v114-64k
    Without BCM_NAT:
    - DL: 30,3MB/s = 242Mbps
    - UL: 23,8MB/s = 190Mbps
    With BCM_NAT:
    - DL: 40,1MB/s = 320Mbps
    - UL: 31,4MB/s = 251Mbps

    Best Regards :)

    @nurofen - did you erase nvram after upgrade tomato and configure all settings by hand?

    @kthaddock - thank you - i tried modprobe bcm_nat from telnet session but that didn't work. when i put modprobe bcm_nat in init script and see module loaded when I cat /proc/modules.

    now - i'm wondering if this interferes with ip traffic monitoring? with two active clients, it seems that all the activity gets allocated to one client when i look at ip traffic graphs.

    i have no idea why this matters becasue there' obviously a tradeoff between speed and features. but if i give up the administrative details for speed, then won't i be back to stock firmware? (E4200)

    this is in no way a complaint. i am grateful for -and have contributed to - tomato development.
    thank you shibby and all contributors

    If bcm_nat works like ctf in regards to Netfilter bypassing (I suspect it does), then yes, it will intefere with IPTraffic. IPTraffic relies on rules in the Forward chain, however hw_nat/ctf mostly bypasses that chain.
