    Generally how much more time for MIPS routers have to wait, after ARM versions are out?

    Looking awesome.
    Wondering if a RT-AC66U version would be a consideration

    Ugh. Just changed my Tomato web password to something like "zÓÁ¶iÿªUÄÔ6ÂÕE"¤NíÓÑ%[F9zÍV²uôÛd" and now I'm locked out.

    Is this a known bug? Does Tomato not play nicely with High ANSI passwords and/or is there an invisible password length limit?

    Hopefully v139 is released this weekend--to make my redoing config (VLANs/IPtables) from scratch less painful.

    @H48W30c0HK Ouch! Looks like you are going to have to router reset and start over. Reminds me of configuring DD-WRT since it makes you set an account name and password as the first step before it lets you do anything else and it doesn't show you the characters you type. So if you are fumble fingers on the keyboard, you will be resetting the router and starting over. I've had to do that a few times in the past. One of the reasons why I don't care too much for DD-WRT. :confused:

    Use this to reset the password: https://www.myopenrouter.com/forum/...-tomato-and-cannot-log-back-or-reset-manually

    Do this:
        1) run router and wait 2-3
        2) push and hold wifi on/off button for 25 secs - this will enable a "backdoor" access to the router.
        3) use putty and connect via telnet on port 233 and log in to router without password
        4) run command: nvram get http_password (login`s value: nvram get http_username)
        5) use result as password
        6) when you log in to tomato remember to erase nvram
        7) do other steps from INSTRUCTIONS file.
    in my case Steps 4 and 5 were useless to me. The resulting password did not work:
    /tmp #
    /tmp # nvram get http_password
    /tmp # nvram get http_username
    /tmp #
    Being a n00b, I had to search online. I came over a command that worked.
    I would add as steps:
    3a) Type in nvram set http_passwd=admin
    3b) Then type in nvram commit
    I logged in using admin / admin
    Best of luck

    is there a chance @shibby20 can add support on this for static ipv6 addresses
    it already supports ipv4 I'd just like to use the same gui for ipv6

    Router list:
    Asus RT-N16 R2 480 1 Gbps 32/128MB K26 or K26RT-N

    While this says: http://tomato.groov.pl/?page_id=164
    Tomato Firmware
    Top download directory:
    • K24 – Kernel 2.4 – ND builds, MIPSR1 – for older Linksys WRT54 series, Asus WL500GP and Dlink DIR-320
    • K26 – Kernel 2.6, MIPSR2 – newer routers like RT-N16, E2000, E3000, E4200 (without 5GHz), WNR3500Lv1 etc. Older MIPSR1 routers are also supported
    • K26RT-N – MIPSR2 – special builds for E4200, RT-N10U, RT-N12B1/C1/D1, RT-N15U, RT-N53, RT-N66U, WNR3500Lv2 and newer Linksys E-series routers
    So, do I have both options or only the K26?

    both of them should work...
    weird part is that the rt-n one shows N5x for the builds...
    usually shibby names them by router model type in this case would be RT-N1x or something like that to mean n15 n16 etc...
    I'd just test it anyways...asus is pretty much unbrickable anyways..its just the hassle of having to use cfe to restore stuff to it..
  16. crashnburn

    crashnburn LI Guru Member

    Exactly why I was feeling a but confused. Is there any benefit / pros & cons of the K26-N vs K26 for the same Router i.e. RT-N16 ?

    @shibby20 - Please do share your wisdom on the confusion here :) ? Thanks.
  17. crashnburn

    crashnburn LI Guru Member

    This seems to have been asked/ discussed here (these links) but doesnt seem like a conclusive answer. And the Builds Image file (being linked to by many) from Shibbys site is broken.

    Given that RT N16 was the favorite router once - I am surprised that this K26 vs K26RT-N choice has not been outlined/ documented - or not easily found.

    @shibby20 Please advise. Thanks.

    PPS: Note I will be going for the Shibby AIO or AdvancedTomato UI but the K26 vs K26RT-N is kind of unclear.

    The drivers may perform different depending on your home environment. The K26 driver may perform better than the K26RT-N or vise versa. If you have the time you may want to test both builds. This is similar to Toastman's RT-N firmware vs the RT-AC firmware. The two different firmware's use completely different drivers but the RT-AC driver may perform better on a Asus RT-N66U router which doesn't support AC capabilities but can still use the AC driver. Again this may depend on your home environment.

    Another thing to consider if that tomato firmware is using closed source Broadcom wireless binary blobs. A newer Broadcom driver could potentially contain bug/exploit source code fixes. But who really knows for sure.

  26. Kikusz

    Kikusz New Member Member

    well..it is important for 2 reasons :
    first - because some places that use *web apps* such as facebook
    do require to have a hostname or it'll take a LONGGGG time to load
    in order to do so you need ptr records and you're not gonna have dnsmasq with ptr records for 18,446,744,073,709,551,6 addresses which is what a /64 has
    so you're gonna make dnsmasq give out only a certain range..lets say 50 ipv6's for the lan and include a ptr for each one on the dnsmasq conf and this way each one of those 50 ips will have their own reverse name
    and not take loads of time just to load sites such as facebook
    second - that also makes it easier for people to connect to different boxes on the lan...
    so i can use a nice neat name like 'zeus' to connect to my linux box instead of a long ass number like 2000:123:1a:12a:123....that nobody's gonna remember
    so yeah..I'd say a couple features are missing in the shibby builds when it comes to ipv6...
    static ipv6 would be one and ipv6 range for lan would be another one
    the range one should be easy...
    as I even saw a post about it on --> http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.ph...cp6-client-for-assigning-lan-addresses.72453/
    It'd just be nice to have it properly in the GUI..

    I am new to this forum but not to Tomato firmware. Currently I am running Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 -138 K26ARM USB VPN-64K (SHIBBY) on a ASUS RT-AC68U successfully with one exception. On some web pages, particularly some forums that I visit (unlike this one) does not allow me to either post or use any of post editor icons. I have taken the time to troubleshoot everything with the OS (Win7 x64), browsers (Firefox, Opera and Chrome), Browser add-ons, AV software and OS firewall. I have un-installed everything and the issue still occurs on any of the browsers. The OS is updated and this only started when I upgraded to my new AC68U router running Shibby 138. For the heck of troubleshooting I have re-connected my "old' router: ASUS RT-N16 running Tomato v1.28.7507 MIPSR2Toastman-RT K26 USB VLAN-VPN (Toastman) and the forums work perfectly! So the issue is related to the firmware on my AC68U. I made sure that I do not have "Adblock" running and all else is default. I really enjoy all the options and stability that Shibby 138 is providing so any input, guidance and assistance in this matter is much appreciated.

    Thank you RichtigFalsch for providing the suggestion to use v132 instead of v138. I did not want to revert to an older version unless I have exhausted all means to resolve my issue.

    With continuous troubleshooting I found the cause of my issue:

    I had a manually set a filter for IDENT on TCP/UDP DST PORT 113; this was a remnant from the early Tomato firmware days that I had to manually set in order to stealth that port. I never had a problem with it until I used v138 from Shibby's Tomato firmware.

    Removing this filter solved my problem and somehow I still kept that specific port stealth. Hope this information helps someone else in the future.

    Hey all!

    Proud owner of an RT-AC66U_B1 here (no, the B1 is NOT the HW Rev. here!). It is basically an RT-AC68U Rev. C1, in a horizontal case, with external antennas.

    I wanted to ask what was blocking support of the AC68U Rev. C1, and thus the AC66U_B1 (both DD-WRT and AsusWRT-Merlin recommend using the AC68U firmware for all AC66U_B1 owners). I'd like to help out with testing and possibly even some development, but the documentation for Tomato is somewhat nonexistent.
  40. RMerlin

    RMerlin Network Guru Member

    Requires a newer SDK and a newer driver from Broadcom. This is problematic since Asus's newer driver is built with support for third party components such as the Trend Micro DPI engine, which Tomato cannot use due to legal reasons.

    Are we talking about the AC1900P? Because I've been trying to load tomato since yesterday without success. Yours (Merlin) loads no problems.

  43. fonix232

    fonix232 New Member Member

    Can't that "support" part be ignored? Or is it required by the new drivers for the firmware to implement it?

    Since you've adapted Merlin to the new SDK, can you elaborate on that part? How hard would it be, generally speaking? Is it a plug&play thing, or lots of changes are required, lots of APIs breaking?
  44. RMerlin

    RMerlin Network Guru Member

    If you just straight copy the newer files on top of the old ones, the router crashes at boot time.

    Totally different ballgame. My firmware is an extension on Asus's own, so I don't need to do anything particular to upgrade - I just keep merging new GPL releases on top of my code. Same reason why it was trivial for me to support the new firmware image format that is required for flashing on top of newer versions of the stock firmware.
  45. fonix232

    fonix232 New Member Member

    I see. Could a shim work here? Implement the public API of those libraries, let the calls return default data, and "be done with it"? I see why it would be problematic to include the libraries needed, but it could also go the way custom Android ROMs deal with Google apps (that cannot be included in a working Android install file, unless licensed) - have the users install it manually (i.e. patch the firmware image) after download. This is, of course, the worst case scenario.

    Yeah, I get that. I really hope this can be countered. Also, this "crash on boot" would violate some international rights, no? Freedom of replacing the operating system or something like that (something that made big news in the past years, practically allowing rooting of Android devices, which previously triggered a warranty-losing eFuse, but was outlawed at least in the US).
  46. RMerlin

    RMerlin Network Guru Member

    This has absolutely nothing to do with laws. It doesn't crash because they voluntarily made it crash, it crashes because Tomato is a Frankenstein build, made of bits from various places that are not specifically meant to work together. These drivers are compiled in a very specific environment, and Tomato isn't that environment.

    What you're saying would be like claiming Apple are breaking laws by writing programs that cannot be run under Windows or Linux.
  47. fonix232

    fonix232 New Member Member

    This sounds like that the system crashes due to missing drivers that are needed, i.e. mandatory for the system to boot, but cannot be included due to copyright/redistribution/other legal issues. Heck, there were huge legal battles about manufacturers doing the same with Android, distributing binary drivers that "cannot be redistributed in any shape and form", and making them mandatory.

    All right, I'll take a look and run some test builds, see if I can get some crash logs and trace the issue. I suppose it happens directly after bootloader (which happens to be u-boot if I'm not wrong), during kernel loading, so I'll need terminal access through serial console. I'll see what I can do in the following days.

    Also have dual WAN working. v138-Shibby on an R7000. One untagged PPPoE connection, one VLAN 10 tagged PPPoE connection. Both on the same Ethernet cable (the modems are connected together and one is doing VLAN tagging, the other isn't).

    I probably already know the answer, but let me ask it anyway: Is there any ETA on v140?
  57. Elfew

    Elfew LI Guru Member

    No ETAs... better to wait longer and have stable build than flash the buggy one and have issues.

    We have been waiting over 10 months since v138 so few weeks are fine :)

    Please consider moving DNSCrypt to the VPN branch. It seems to make sense that the security/privacy conscious people that want DNSCrypt are also the type that are going to be wary of the increased attack surface of the AIO build. Plus, since the FCC is moving to remove privacy protections in the US, DNSCrypt support is really becoming more of a standard requirement, IMO.
  60. James Bond

    James Bond Reformed Router Member

    I still use Asus WL-500gP v2 with 1.28 MIPSR1-138 K26.
    Since DNSCrypt is required, Max firmware edition is installed, however I would prefer a lighter one.
    Looking forward to update because DNSCrypt-proxy 1.6.1 is pretty outdated here (1.9.4 is current official).
    As a result, some resolvers such as fr/dnscrypt/org produce a warning: Unsupported certificate version.
