    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

    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.

    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?
  16. Elfew

    Not recommended, better to set everything from scratch.
  17. Kobalt

    Kobalt Networkin' Nut Member

    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.
  19. apreslin

    apreslin Network Newbie Member

    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/

    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.

    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!!
  26. pomidor1

    pomidor1 Networkin' Nut Member

    it will automatically run, it probably lack power, connect it via usb2 hub (do not use usb3 hub) with its own power supply separately
  27. Kobalt

    Kobalt Networkin' Nut Member

    It would be better to have the CLIENTS updated, since once you are out of your home WiFi, you remain vulnerable to KRACK.

    DAVIZINHO Addicted to LI Member

    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 :-(

    pomidor1 Networkin' Nut Member


    DAVIZINHO Addicted to LI Member

    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)

  35. Kobalt

    Kobalt Networkin' Nut Member

    Just an update to this.
    I couldn't solve what the issue was with Tomato Shibby, or, I tried Merlin's build, and haven't had any dropouts in either 2.4GHz or 5GHz.

    Unsure what the difference is between those firmwares, but, I assumed Shibby used the same source for the radios, so, anyone have any ideas on what the issue could have been?
  36. duren11

    duren11 New Member Member

    If by latest tomato you mean v140 for the n66u, I'm currently running the same and I don't experience any dropouts on the 5ghz band. I do get an occasional blip on the 2.4 once every few months but that's it.

    For this reason, krack, and the general update situation of tomato, I'll likely be moving back to dd-wrt soon.
  37. Jau-Ling Chou

    Jau-Ling Chou Networkin' Nut Member

    Does the rt-n66u support minimum rssi setting in any firmware? I'm not sure if it's a limitation of 802.11n, or if it's tomato or I'm just blind?

    Edit: I found that ASUS calls it Roaming Assistant, but I guess its not a feature of tomato/shibby?

    Yes, was on v140, and I did try everything under the sun, from clearing NVRAM to nightly reboots, everything was left at default settings.
    Can't explain it, since the switch to Merlin's, there have been no dropouts at all on either 2.4 or 5.

    While waiting, I have a suggestion, don't know how to officially convey it, but since privacy is a hot topic, and many do not want to hand over their contacts and calendar to google or other online providers, wouldn't it be great if Tomato could take over that task by integrating a calendar and contacts server? Tried installing radicale in python3-light, but there is no pip module.

    Just curious if the Shibby builds have stopped. I have an ASUS RT-AC66U, and haven't seen an update (140) since May 2017. I know there have been some security issues that have mostly been patched in the industry, but haven't seen an updated Shibby build. Considering switching to stock ASUS firmware for security, but would be super sad to let go of so many features in Tomato.

    What is everyone else doing? Is there a more updated Tomato build for the ASUS RT-AC66U?

    Xruptor Serious Server Member

    The only active and remaining Tomato firmware build is Kille ARM builds for Shiby. It looks like any MIPS router developments are dead and folks have to look elsewhere. So if you have a router that can support ARM firmware then give Kille a try. Other then that it looks like Tomato future is in trouble. There are other firmwares available, DD-WRT, AsusWRT-Merlin, etc.. if anything else.

    Hi guys, i know that you are (please forget my ignorance if not true) somehow in contact with @shibby20 following your posts either here or on openlinksys forum.

    Do you know by chance if he will make future updates to MIPS versions? or the has stopped his involvement in tomato firmware?

    Hi! Please give an advice on my problem.
    After flashing my R7000 with v140, there is no internet via wifi. Wifi is broadcasted, I can connect to both of networks, but my mobile devices can't connect to internet. Then I flashed v138, erased nvram and set eerything up from scratch, but devices can't reach network so far. Wired devices work perfectly.

    Can WPA3 potentially be added to 3rd party firmware, or will that require new hardware? Talking about on router side, and on wireless adapters for computers
  55. maurer

    maurer LI Guru Member

    theoretically it can be added but as we can't even patch KRACK in wpa2 for tomato i don't see wpa3 here for tthe same reasons outline above - broadcom binary blobs.
    Openwart/lede can add this new standard very easily
  56. RMerlin

    Too early to tell, as we don't even know yet if the manufacturers can add it without a silicon revision...

    What are the three most powerful router models that run tomato shibby that I could buy right now at the store or online, that run shibby mod without any gotchas or hang ups?

    Can I run shibby on a netgear R7000 Nighthawk?
    Can I run shibby on an Asus ac3200?

    What I'm asking, is beyond being able to get the Tomato shibby mod on to these devices and running, do they run without issues? Or are there weird problems?

    I bricked mine and the serial cable did not work - I had a tech put it on an oscilloscope. The odd this was that the router would come up issue an ip via DHCP, was pingable for a short time and then it would crash. Sure wished that cable worked so I could see where it crashed.

    So by the sounds of things some of the bugs that arrived in the multiwan versions will seemingly never be fixed? Sounds like Shibby is winding down.....

    WPA2-Enterprise is still broken in every version beyond 132 (client is sending mutitple packets too quickly)
    As well my OpenVPN server setup works fine on 132 but will not start on newer versions. (havent looked into why its failing as without Enterprise working theres no point)

    Without WPA2-Enterprise I guess Ill be stuck on 132 until I upgrade routers which have more recent support???
  71. gary201

    gary201 New Member Member

    Any version above 132 was unstable on my E4200. If Tomato is really becoming a dead project, I'm wondering whether I should just switch to something like pfSense and just use the e4200 as an access point and be done with it.
