Jeez, just found out there's also E1 (been away for while)... Are they pretty much the same?

ok, so maybe i will say few words. I have a working tomato on revC (and probably newer). Working means that i am able to compile tomato`s image and flash it to the router, router booted correct BUT it works until erase nvram. After that wireless variables )wl0_, wl1_ wl0.1 etc) should automatically restore from default variables wl_, but it does not happen and here is the problem. Still fighting.
Thank you very much for the work on the firmware. Don't worry too much about the wireless. Most people who use Tomato firmware leave the WiFi disabled anyway. Tomato is for routing.
That's too funny. Nice random generalization based on no facts, evidence, or reality.
And the wireless represent a network, thus it can be routed to and from. People who assume that everybody thinks and do things the way that they do, are always a little scary to me. When they say things like "most people" but are actually referring to themselves. Sounds like something politicians would say. Imagine they speak for most people, but they don't know anything about most people.

So I shut the wireless off. But none of the browsers work on our phones, tablets, TVs, and game consoles won't connect to online game servers. What gives?
I think Shibby should consider dropping tomato on ac68 C1, E1 in alpha version it is without working wifi because it is such a demand
OK, but is there any progress since august? I dont think so...
I would love to see a release with the fixes related with PPTP-on-ARM-devices issues that tsynik has fixed in June (there is a separate thread about it: http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.ph...-issue-in-all-shibby-tomato-arm-builds.73552/).
Other than that, I'm happy with Shibby's tomato variant and thankful for the support. Keep up the good work!
If we're wishing out loud, I would like to see the graphing fixed. I went back to toastmans version because of this issue.

@pedro311 added to the beta branch of fork by @kille72 these patches - much of it, the question is all ok, looking for testers
"BTW: I need someone to check if - on PPPoe, PPTP or L2TP connection and set "Connect Mode - Keep Alive", IT IS really keep alive, I mean after "Redial Interval" the connection is resumed (log welcome)."
if not he who?
I do not know Shibby personally, but from what I've seen, it always ends up with what he started. Adaptation of the tomato to the new SDK is the key to this project. Without this the tomato will fall into a lethargy.
I assume this has been an answer to my post. I'll try testing this image in coming days and will report back.
Would a move from Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-138 K26 USB AIO
To 140 allow me to export / import a Config file? PS: Not the script one, just the default one?
Not recommended, better to set everything from scratch.
You could do something like from within the shell...
nvram export —set >config.txt
Then cherry pick the most important settings you want from that list, and then paste those into the shell to set them.
Most things won't change on firmware updates, but, it is possible some will, that is why I say to cherry pick the ones you really want.
Lately, my 5GHz has been very unreliable.
Anyone know what causes this? I tried a router reboot, and it is doing the same thing, any device that tries to connect to the 5GHz band keeps dropping then connecting then dropping.
2.4GHz works fine though.
Using the latest tomato firmware on my Asus N66U router.
I also experienced stability issues with 5GHz on both an Asus RT-AC68U and an Asus RT-AC3200 on the latest Shibby builds (even on fresh clearing NVRAM installs). Mine was mostly 5GHz dropping all connected devices for about a minute every couple of days, and some other quirky connectivity related issues in various devices. I never was able to identify a root cause or anyone else that had a fix/workaround after reading pretty much this entire thread. I switched over to the Toastman builds a couple of months ago and haven't had an issue with 5GHz since.
So for stable 5GHz, you may want to try:
1. Toastman build: http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.php?threads/tomato-toastmans-releases.36106/
2. kille72 build fork based on v132 Shibby build: http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.php?threads/fork-tomato-by-shibby-compiled-by-kille72.73397/
3. Shibby v132 build (before MultiWAN was introduced): http://tomato.groov.pl/download/K26ARM/132/
It sounds like you forgot to add a functional WiFi access point to yer system. https://www.ubnt.com/airmax/nanostationm/
Will a RT-N53 build be available for v140? I've tried the AdvancedTomato version, but it seems to be just a hair too big - I can't enable JFFS (get too few erase block message) - and therefore I can't setup VPN client. If there's a way to get a "mini" version that just enables JFFS, Dual-Band Wifi, and VPN that would be great.
setup Open VPN client
Tomato anon shows that people use versions 140 mini, max, etc <8 MB
I think these are the ones
I do not know if there is dual band support
Hello will shibby be patching the two recent vulnerabilities that affect the firmware he builds, it has been a while and I haven't seen anything new. Specifically I'm referring to the KRACK vuln and dnsmasq vulns. KRACK looks like a harder problem but I think DD-WRT already took a stab at it. dnsmasq can probably be fixed just by upgrading. How are you guys dealing with this issue on your routers?
I found yesterday a liknsys E4200 lost in a box :-P and i used it to install tomato by shibbys with a 3g usb modem.
This works REALLY COOL!!!!
but i have a little problem, the 3g dont conect automatically on boot, I must push the connect button in web interface. Its posible that connect automatically??
thanks a lot!!
it will automatically run, it probably lack power, connect it via usb2 hub (do not use usb3 hub) with its own power supply separately
It would be better to have the CLIENTS updated, since once you are out of your home WiFi, you remain vulnerable to KRACK.
power problem? but if I puss the connect button it works perfect.
Can i run any automatic script to run de connect order after x seconds on boot?
I cant use a power switch :-(
Especially if you have a weak 3g signal, the lte modem needs a lot of power to work well, just try to use something like this.
i still dont understand you. Sorry.
Im not have a problem disconecting, or a problem in a connection process.
The problem is when the router power on not conect automatically the wan with the 3g device. I must push the button to connect. No more
I think if was a power problem, when i push de connect button it fail or give me some problems, but this not ocurs.
do you understand me? (sorry for my poor english)
try router+usb2 hub powered+modem lte/3g
i still dont understand, but i will try it
