    Do you remember Paragon NTFS driver in Asus firmwares? I tried port this driver to tomato once but i failed.

    Today i did it ;) It`s working only on RT-AC branch for now.

    Dmesg:
    mount:
    Speeds via SAMBA (RT-N66U + SATA HDD 2,5" NTFS filesystem:
    DL: 15,6MB/s
    UL: 14,7MB/s

    Best Regards ;)

    I'm a newbie: just flashed my Netgear WNR3500Lv2 with Shibby's 112 build one week ago. Really like the stability and functionality of the firmware. Thanks a lot for Shibby's wonderful work! Sorry for my basic questions:

    1) When I update the firmware to a new version (e.g., build 114), can I simply use the web interface Administration -> Upgrade -> Choose file (check "After flashing, erase all data in NVRAM memory") -> Upgrade?

    2) Also, before upgrading, if I save the current configuration through Administration -> Configuration -> Backup Configuration, can I restore my current setup through the web interface? Or do I have to manually restore the configuration?

    3) Do the stock functionalities such as the WPS button and WIFI on/off switch on the router still work under the TomatoUSB FW?

    Thanks!

    So it means higher transfer speeds over usb with ntfs hdd?

    1 yes
    2 erase NVRAM after flash and manually re-enter settings. There are threads on streamlining the process
    3 WPS button doesn't do WPS. It becomes a programmable/customizable button with many uses. The settings screen for the button is in the GUI.

    @mj56gt
    1) yes, you do

    2) no, you can`t! Erase nvram and restore old config is the WORST thing you can do. After upgrade just leave old config. If router will be stable and all functions will works correct then you are in home :) But if router will be unstable or something will not works as should, then erase nvram and set all manually once again

    3) Tomato does not suport WPS. Wifi on/off works (look administration -> buttons for more info).

    @Elfew - much higher :) Using ntfs-3g module we are available to get about 3-4MB/s from NTFS. Using paragon NTFS even 4x higher

    Thanks Shibby and Marcel Tunks for the clarifications and kind help!

    This is weird. I just tried to upgrade Netgear WNR3500Lv2 from version 112 to 114 through the web interface first with wireless and then with ethernet connection, and could not get it work. The webpage shows a ticking clock with the following message:

    Please wait while the firmware is uploaded & flashed.
    Warning: Do not interrupt this browser or the router!

    And on the bottom left corner, it is stuck with the message "Uploading (1%) ...", and never went anywhere further. What am I missing?

    I saw someone mentioned an upgrade command with something like "tftp ...". Would that be a more robust approach to upgrading?

    A different question: What functionality is missing in the BT-VPN build compared to the AIO version?

    OK, now I see the WPS button can be configured in various ways, which is very nice! There is a WIFI on/off button on the back of my Netgear WNR3500Lv2. Does that button still function?

    Thanks again!

    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.

    I can also confirm:
    I spent all afternoon trying to flash a Belkin Play F7D4302, it's not working!
    I've tryed reverting to stock, everything, still no go!

    Strange thing is that on Belkin Play Max F7D4301, that is widely the same hardware except it has Gigabit ports I managed to install the firmware corectly.

    I can confirm this error:

    Same here, it's more than an error as devices won't connect at 40mhz. I also saw the weird numbers on the uplink speed on the device page. I ended up flashing the non-AC one on my RT-N66U to fix the two issues.

    I managed to upgrade my Netgear WNR3500Lv2 from Shibby's version 112 to 114 through the web interface without checking "After flashing, erase all data in NVRAM memory". In other words, I didn't erase the data before nor after the upgrade. After the upgrade, I could access to the router wirelessly through 192.168.1.1, but the internet connection is now gone (before the upgrade, everything was working properly).

    Then I performed the 30-30-30 procedure to reset the router, and followed the steps at this site to manually set up the router as I did before for version 112:

    http://www.myopenrouter.com/article/36073/How-to-Install-Tomato-Firmware-on-NETGEAR-WNR3500Lv2/

    But the problem remains: I can access to the router wirelessly through 192.168.1.1 and the TomatoUSB interface, but it is not working as an access point for my modem. I'm using another backup router, so I know it's not an ISP issue.

    Is my router bricked? How to diagnose the problem? Is it caused by the fact that I didn't erase the data before the upgrade? Or I messed up some settings?

    if you have a problem with K26RT-AC build on Asus RT-N66U, just user v114 from K26RT-N directory.

    Shibby - I use ppoe + VLAN tested the 110-114v does not work online. RAF works fine, compare the source code :)

    Hi Shibby!

    I got some questions please :)

    1.
    Using Build 112 there's a problem with saving FTP-Uploads through vsftp to an external SMB Share using 'CIFS Client', causing the file always being corrupted with Windows versions from at least vista up to Windows 8. This can be resolved by simply adding the 'nobrl' option to the related mount commands. Could you please add this change?

    2.
    You announced that RT-N build will be replaced by RT-AC build after 114. Does this mean I will have to flash RT-AC build on my 3500Lv2 soon?

    3.
    Could I flash the current generic RT-AC version to my3500Lv2 for making use of your Paragon ntfs patch?


    Thank You!

    :)

    Test only with ppoe and no other settings and se if it's working that way.
     
  25. RichtigFalsch

    RichtigFalsch Serious Server Member

    From what I've seen, the recent shibby builds connect through pppoe for me, but it's taking very much time until the pppoe connection is established, like 5minutes or so. Maybe you just need more patience.

    I did some testing with the two different versions for the RT-N66U, both times with a complete NVRAM clear and manual re-entering the same settings trough the web interface.

    RT-N66U_RT-AC6x--114-AIO-64K
    I have the same problem with the 5 GHz wireless only working at 20 MHz.
    When starting the OpenVPN server using the TAP interface the br0 interface gets the mac address of the tap21 interface, so every time the VPN server is restarted windows sees a new network.

    The problem with the 4294967 Mbps RX rate on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz is gone.

    K26USB-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-114-AIO-64K
    Non of the two above problems.

    Mihai Olimpiu-Cristian Serious Server Member

    On Belkin Play Max F7D4301, 5Ghz works corectly at 40 Mhz (BIG VPN flavor), I was connected at 300 Mbps. Try to erase NVRAM...
    Can't wait for Paragon NTFS support in your firmware Shibby, hopefully it works in RT-N branch too!
    BCM_NAT support can't be added to the GUI as a option in V115? You have to issue modprobe bcm_nat command now...

    Can you take a look at the Belkin Play F7D4302, v114 is bricking the router and not everyone is capable of unbricking it! At least in my case Mini CFE server jumped to 192.168.1.1 , .2.1 (default) , .0.10, and it was really troublesome to revive the router!
     
  30. mj56gt

    mj56gt Reformed Router Member

    Sorry for this basic question. I'm setting up my Netgear WNR3500Lv2 with Shibby's version 114 as an access point. The internet service works fine if I connect it with an ethernet cable from another router's ethernet port to the Netgear's modem (internet) port; however, if I connect it with the cable directly from the modem, the internet connection does not work even though I can still access to the Netgear through 192.168.1.1!

    Everything was working fine with the 112 version before with the same setup. What am I missing? Any help would be highly appreciated!

    The firmware will report N66U regardless. What did you buy? A N66U or N66R? Also, did you reset nvram using this method?
    Code:
    Administration => Configuration => Restore Default Configuration => and pull down and choose: Erase all data in NVRAM memory (thorough)

    Label on the back of the router says RT-N66U. I didn't erase NVRAM, just upgraded from the previous 112 AIO build.

    For those who upgraded their N66u from 112 to the new 114 K26RT-AC, did you notice any improvement in the wireless coverage/stability?. The K26RT-AC is supposed to have new wireless driver. Just wondering.

    Hello, Shibby!

    I saw you asking about the function the NEWDRIVER builds in this thread.
    Today I tried one of these the first time, and i think it's great. MY 3500Lv2 is booting much faster now and pppoe connection is established nearly instant now with NEWDRIVER 114 (In opposite to normal RT-N 112 i had before).

    May i ask you for helping me on thse three questions i had before, again?

    Thank you :)

    If you want to accurately report the device model, look for the presence of the "odmpid" nvram var. If set, it will report either RT-N66U or RT-N66R. If not set, then go with the model or productid like you were already using.

    Just clarifying - you state it's an F7D3302, but the tomatoanon line is for an F7D3301. Also, from the tomatoanon driver version it appears to be an RT build, not an RT-N build. Can you confirm the model and build type?

    In my testing, 114 RT-N builds will not boot on F7D3302/F7D7302 and F7D4302/F7D8302. RT builds seem OK. RT-N builds on F7D4301/F7D8301 are OK. I don't have any F7D3301/F7D7301 units to test.

    Since I couldn't get my Netgear WNR3500Lv2 with Shibby's version 114 (RT-N5x--114-AIO.chk) working properly for internet connection, can I downgrade it back to version 112 by using the web interface for upgrade? Any risk of bricking the router in doing so? Thanks!

    I can confirm the same. Upgrade feature isn't working properly from 112 to 114. However I did check "After flashing, erase all data in NVRAM memory". The router for some reason hung and did not reboot automatically. I left the router alone for like 10 minutes, and turned it off using the button from the backside. I turned it on again and the router is still working fine.


    And by the way does that Paragon NTFS module work on my WNR3500L V2? Or that module is just for Asus routers?

    To those who have experience with Belkin F7D4301: which Shibby build should I flash if I mainly use it as a primary wireless router plus BitTorrent?

    Can I directly flash a Shibby build from the Belkin stock firmware?

    Thanks in advance!

    shibby,

    Thank you for your hard work,

    I was wondering, if would it be possible to have option on and off for APC.

    Something that would enable and disable this, so, it doesnt show @ /nas-ups.asp with errors, etc.
    I am sure that not all of ppl use this option.

    This is not a problem, this is not something that bothers me, just giving my opinion.

    Any non model specific .trx build from the RT folder or Asus RT-N folder less than 8MB should work. You probably want the BT-VPN build. I generally have better wireless performance with the RT-N builds, but try both, as results can vary based on the client mix.

    For the 4301 you can upgrade directly from the Belkin GUI. The 7302, 8302 and (I think) 7301 models need to be updated first to the .bin builds for the specific model, and then to the .trx.

    Be sure to erase nvram afterwards.

    Thanks a lot for sharing the information! Really appreciate it...

    The few places I've read seem to suggest that one should always flash DD-WRT first and then upgrade to TomatoUSB. Sorry for being a little overcautious: so you've successfully used the upgrade button/menu on the Belkin web interface and flashed Shibby's build on the Belkin 4301? Thanks again!
     
  64. jerrm

    jerrm Network Guru Member

    As recently as this past Friday, directly from the standard Belkin GUI, without booting into the CFE. I doubt there was ever a need for a dd-wrt interim step for the 4301 as the Belkin firmware accepts a generic .trx image.

    The 3301/3302/4302 (and 7 & 8 series clones) are different in that the Belkin firmware looks for specially tagged model specific .bin images. For those models early on, using the tagged dd-wrt .bin images were a necessary first step because Tomato .bin images were not available. Now, Toastman and Shibby have their own model specific .bin images. Both the dd-wrt .bin and Tomato .bin images are mini builds, so once loaded, you need to load a more full featured build.

    Sorry to bother you all with this simple question but it is of maximum importance to me...
    Is there any chance for a minidlna upgrade to the latest version (1.1.0 I believe)?

    I ask because I just encountered a problem with a media file that is unplayable via dlna. Btw, I am using a RT-N16 running tomato v112 shibby flavor. Oh, and the same media file is seen and played perfectly fine by the TV when using an USB stick so it's not the TV internal media player's fault.

    Here's the specs of the media file

    not a real solution, but you can try editing the header, and put the "real identifier" in. you can use any hex editor to do so.
    if the "real identifier" is unknown, just try one like "divx" or "xvid"

    Someone recently posted a guide with a few settings that could optimize wifi speed.

    I've been searching for it but can't seem to find it, can anyone help me out?

    The most recent one was a nearly verbatim quote from a site run by a guy named Steve Jenkins. It's an okay way to slightly increase your speedtest.net numbers without actually improving user experience. Not advised unless you only care about single user bulk file transfers across the WAN interface. If you're not dissuaded by that, then you can Google Steve Jenkins E4200 and it should be the first hit.

    I would recommend instead looking at the section on common Tomato topics/FAQ at the top of the forum. It has more reliable information.

    You said:
    But, in the changelog of version 114, you wrote:
    So I ask if I can hope that you will fix the error in the next version.
    I thank you for everything you did to Tomatousb and I still use "Tomato by Shibby"

    The RT-N and RT-AC builds are different. They share a common source branch, but are bult wwith different options

    Have you tried the RT-N build as suggested?

    One more clarification: after the upgrade from the Belkin GUI, how to erase NVRAM? Through the conventional 30-30-30 procedure or "Administration / Configuration / Restore Default Configuration / Erase all data in NVRAM memory (thorough)" on the TomatoUSB GUI? Or the two are basically the same thing?

    I have similar hardware in the F7D7302 and 114 flashed fine. I use K26 builds (no RT-N branch). I have abysmal WiFi speeds most of the time now so if Shibby has a look we can possibly find out the problem for both issues.

    I'm fairly sure the older broadcom wireless driver needs to be deprecated for all possible routers. There are multiple known issues with it. I was able to compile shibby from the tomato-shibby-RT-AC branch for the e2000 without a problem. This problem appears to have been fixed by using the newer driver at least on the e2000 http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.ph...s-on-comcast-cisco-e-series-and-others.69006/

    lefty Networkin' Nut Member

    Wouldn't be so sure about that, the RT driver gives me much more wireless range on my E3000 versus the RT-N driver. Probably why its most recommended to use for the E2000/E3000, with good reason.
     
  79. lightsword

    lightsword Serious Server Member

    Ill experiment a little with my e2000 and maybe pull my e3000 for testing. I might also have a newer driver and broadcom SDK, although it may be ARM specific. Anyone know where the current RT-N driver came from? I didn't see RT-N for either the e2000 or e3000 prebuilt, is there any reason they are not other than having worse performance? Maybe there is a build config option that is causing issues for the newer driver on some devices that could be changed. Seems any driver before around 2010 or so has major DSCP issues.
     
  80. lefty

    lefty Networkin' Nut Member

    For the most part, the RT-N driver came along when the newer E series line came along, and i don't really qualify the E2000 or E3000 to be a part of the newer E series, they are basically older units (wrt320n and wrt610n v2 and BCM 47xx based chips) with a newer CFE that allowed for 60k nvram vs. the older 32k nvram for the older units. I would more consider the newer E series to consist of like E800, E900, E1500, E1550, E3200 and so on, and have BCM 53xx based chips, so in order to support the newer chips of course broadcom had to come out with a newer N driver, thus the RT-N branch to support those came along.

    Also to note, you won't see much range difference on an E2000 when using RT vs. RT-N, its the E3000 and RT-N16 where i see the range difference performance, which both happen to be BCM4718 based vs. the E2000 BCM4717

    My RT-N66U is also stuck at 20Mhz on the 5Ghz radio with the RT-AC build. :-/

    So is there any disadvantage to using this driver with the e2000?

    lefty Networkin' Nut Member

    In my tests, not much difference on the E2000 when using RT or RT-N, i however didn't ever test the E2000's 5Ghz band, only tried it with the 2.4 band going, so i can't comment on if it effects 5Ghz performance or not.

    5ghz works, not really sure how fast it is though, can only test with my cell phone for that and its wifi is always kind of bad.

    Access Rules - V114 parsing Bug?
    If you create acces rules using special characters like: .groov.pl$ (it should block every site that ends with groov.pl), it doesn't work anymore... you have to use ONLY groov.pl, so it blocks every site that contains that word.
    Can someone confirm? $ is treated like a normal character not like a special character, I think the same applyes to ^ - Starts with

    Since som build back "sting" module is used in access restrictions rules and that breaks some other functions to.
    Se all post here about "string" module and pros/cons to use that.
     
  87. jerrm

    jerrm Network Guru Member

    As kthaddock said, Shibby and Victek are now using the iptables string module instead of the tomato specific web module for matching, regex is no longer supported. This allows potential matching against https traffic, but is a big step backwards for standard http.

    It's a good option to have, but I'm not a big fan of the current implementation.

    After reviewing all the changelogs, it was introduced in V.111. This means, my PS3 was in danger of updating and has sent all my precious and delicate information back to sony's servers all this time :( Such a shame cangelogs aren't properly discussed or explained...
    From what I've gathered from the internet, acces restriction is based now mostly on strings, so if you want to block facebook you just add facebook in the box. Are there any rules that can be set? I've tried to minimise false positives by using long adresses like "manuals.playstation.net", not only "playstation" wich is such a common word.

    Hi! Thanks for great work!
    A few questions:
    1. Does the BCM_NAT driver work on the Asus RT-N16?
    2. Any chance to run WL driver 6.x on RT-N16?
    3. Will Paragon NTFS driver be included into firmware or available as separate module and when?

    I have the exact same questions!!! :p
     
  91. shibby20

    shibby20 Network Guru Member

    1) yes, just load module using command "modprobe bcm_nat" and that`s all.
    2) no, this driver is incompatible with this hardware.
    3) Paragon NTFS driver works only on K26RT-AC branch, which is incompatible with router RT-N16. This module will be include into next release but only for RT-N66U and RT-AC66U routers.

    Best regards.

    @shibby

    I have a question/suggestion regarding Access Restriction Overview.
    Since you have changed to "string" module in access restriction overview some functions doesen't work anymore.
    Such as : ActiveX (ocx, cab) Flash (swf) Java (class, jar) and this " ^ $ ." functions. Is it possible to instead change it back and someway use new character to choose string module? maby this way "$$facebook.com$$" ?

    Best regards

    i have one question to you: is "string" module better than older "web" module? Facebook is still works if i have good information... If new module really doesn`t help and as i see, is more problematic, well maybe we should back to older solution?

    Well In my case I use iptable and start with "insmod" so I'm not so depended of that.
    I thought it was possible to combo both worlds don't know what other user wants?
    Well let it be as it is :D

    jerrm Network Guru Member

    I like both.

    I would generate a separate rule using the web module for port 80 traffic to reduce the possibility of false positives, and use a string rule for 443. Ideally a checkbox, or some sort of escape prefix to indicate whether you want to match https at all.

    I think the default action should be the more conservative block less, minimum risk of false positives action.

    Please keep the string module in the build no matter what you do. I definitely would not want to give up the option to use it manually.

    It's not that Tomato is stuck with Asus, it's just that many of their recent routers use the right kind of processors that Tomato can easily be ported to.
    Theoretically, tomato could be ported to just about any device. The clincher is that it takes a supreme amount of effort and time, whilst getting almost no return monetarily or otherwise for doing so. Such is the way of Open Source, though it is a noble cause in my opinion. There are efforts ongoing to port tomato to the arm architecture, coincidentally some Asus models. These are significantly more powerful however than current supported models tomato currently works on. Not sure why you would be sad about this though, Asus makes a decent router I think.

    Once we get a working port on the Broadcom-ARM chipset it should be fairly simple to support other manufacturers. There is little difference in the hardware itself since its all pretty standard broadcom SoC's.
