    @Toastman
    I have used your 0501.2 USB VLAN-VPN-NOCAT and I have seen "Recent Web Searches" not working.
    I think problem is your build comes with IP Traffic Monitoring turned off and when turn it on recent web searches stops working.
    Not sure that is the reason could be when setting save interwall other than 24h.
    Can someone with time and spirt test this ;) ?

    After watching my 3500L go up in smoke this morning, I was kind of wondering the same thing. The old WRT54G I have is doing an admirable job as a temp stand-in, but some of the improvements would be nice.

    As I have said in the past; If this firmware (as it is now) had been out 2 years ago, I never would have upgraded to the newer router. It is that damn good. My other half does not even notice that the old router is back in play.

    In the past I was using the stock version of Tomato on my WRt54GS v4 and running the following firewall script in order to allow WOL to work from remote locations.

    #Setup WOL Broadcast Address
    ip neigh change 192.168.122.254 lladdr ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff nud permanent dev br0
    ip neigh add 192.168.122.254 lladdr ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff nud permanent dev br0

    I am now using Tomato Firmware v1.28.7633 .3-Toastman-IPT-ND ND Std - Linux kernel 2.4.37.11 and Broadcom Wireless Driver 4.150.10.29 updates. I installed the same script but it does not seem to work.
    Can anyone tell me what I may be doing wrong and how to correct it.

    Thanks

    Hi there.

    I have Tomato Firmware v1.28.7633 .3-Toastman-VLAN-IPT-ND ND VPN

    My question is HOW do I save/export iptables rules? iptables-save does not exist when I ssh to router. I only have iptables and iptables-restore. Now, I messed something up but I made a firmware backup before so now I can restore firmware.

    But restoring whole firmware every time I play with iptables is annoying. Is there another way how to save/export iptables rules?

    EDIT: If iptables-save is the only option to save iptables rules, can someone give me instructions how to install iptables-save on this toastman release? It wouldbe much appreciated.

    EDIT2: I just found out that I can manage iptables from web interface: administration -> scripts -> firewall. So I'll do it there if that's what it takes for iptables to store and restore.

    I added rules to the firewall like this: administration -> scripts -> firewall
    First line should restrict br1 from accessing br0. br1 in my case is virtual ssid (10.6.2.0/24) and br0 is main ssid (10.6.1.0/24). But it doesn't. I'm trying br1 from accessing br0, any ideas how to make it work?

    Second line should prevent one test client that is on a br1 (virtual ssid) from using the internet, but it is still able. Am I entering those rules wrong? Here is the screenshot for making it clear:

    Thanks to all the people who work on Tomato. Toastman in particular - your implementation and explanation of QoS is effective and very helpful. Your objectivity regarding transmission power is also a breath of fresh air. I've used several Toastman versions in other people's networks with excellent results. Unfortunately I remain a novice and will waste the forum's time with some basic questions:

    WDS network using 5.8ghz band, wireless clients connected on 2.4ghz. All three E4200 routers running tomato-E4200USB-NVRAM60K-1.28.0501MIPSR2Toastman-RT-N-Ext

    Cable modem
    |
    (wired)
    |
    E4200 --(WDS)-- E4200
    |
    (WDS)
    |
    E4200

    1) After power outage, can get WDS running by turning 5.8ghz radio off and on by checking "noise floor" on all 3 routers simultaneously, but not by rebooting in any order. Is there a script that could be used to check noise floor in a synchronized manner?

    2) WDS connection rate fluctuates much more than WET in same firmware or in WDS or WET using dd-wrt with the same physical layout. (fluctuates from 78-270 Mbps while the other three methods were stable at 216 Mbps) Is there anything I can or should do to create a more consistent connection rate?

    Thanks

    Oh crap... it appears that the UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) daemon that a lot of firmware for multiple routers use have some serious vulnerabilities as of late.
    http://www.techspot.com/news/51472-upnp-flaws-place-millions-of-networks-in-danger.html

    The vulnerabilities that were identified has been found in all Portable UPnP SDK versions 1.6.17 and older, 1.6.18 was released on January 29th. Possible exploits include stack overflows, remote code execution, and unauthorized access to network management interfaces and even the networks themselves.

    This is one hell of an exploit. Toastman, I think you're not going to be getting any sleep.

    And I just ran some software that tests for the UPnP vulnerability and Toastman firmware is vulnerable.

    Vulnerability Scan Results

    This report shows the results of a network scan for common vulnerabilities in Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) implementations.
    Description

    Can you retry those tests with miniupnpd not running?

    I don't think Toastman or any other tomato developer will loose any sleep about this, simply integrate new software when it has been released (fixed).

    Hope all is well!

    So basically you're saying that the program that was mentioned to test your network for the vulnerability is detecting a false positive?
     
  16. rhester72

    rhester72 Network Guru Member

    I don't think you paid much attention to your own scan. It shows quite correctly that it identified 1 device running a "known" UPnP server, and of those 1 identified devices, 0 are exploitable.

    Nothing to see here, folks.

    hello Toastman

    I have an overclocking question ,because NAT performance is not enough for my internet speed

    I have read this article
    http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.ph...6-what-cpu-speed-to-choose.33490/#post-164828
    I am using N10U,and what figures exactly N10U can type in?(I am afraid of N10U dying,and have any overclocking failed rescue method?)

    in your version is (300,150,75)default,(354,177,88),(400,200,100),(453,226,113),(480,240,120),(500,250,125)

    But I found someone's figures is 480,160,80
    http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?2...2%F3%E7%E8%E0%F1%F2%EE%E2&p=242238#post242238

    Why do not f/2 and f/4?

    Can I using 480,240,120 figures in N10U?or the best figures are?

    Because I found the same chip RT-N15U: BCM5357 @ 500MHz
    Netgear WNR3500L v2: BCM5357 @ 480MHz

    I believe it works on your "internet connection". It does not impact thins like file transfers between your lan computers. It's for packets coming or going to the internet.

    @Toastman

    The Keep Alive feature of 3G modem as WAN does not work properly.
    Lot of state, modem connected but no uplink/downlink condition.

    In the end, I had to switch to OpenWRT and use this script.

    Create File
    Code:
    # touch /bin/tester.sh
    # chmod 755 /bin/tester.sh
    Write this:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    if ! ping -q -c 1 -W 10 8.8.8.8 > /dev/null; then
        (ifup wan) &
    fi
    Create CRON
    Code:
    # /etc/init.d/cron stop
    # echo "*/2 * * * * /bin/tester.sh" >> /etc/crontabs/root
    # /etc/init.d/cron enable
    # /etc/init.d/cron start
    I do not try Shibby build yet.
    Have asked here few days ago, and still no respond.

    Hopefully you could check the problem Toastman?
     
  24. Morac

    Morac Network Guru Member

    I've switched to storing the stats on a USB stick which survives restarts and the like.

    The original problem is a bug in the cstats (ip stats) code (or more of an omissions). There was a fix made for restoring saved cstats from the GUI, but I don't think it was ever pulled into the Toastman release.

    See this thread for details.

    Edit: It looks like the 10 KB limit was fixed, so that's 100 KB. That fixes restoring saved cstats, but the issue with cstats not being restored from the RAM disk when stopping and starting cstats was never fixed.

    bug or feature ?! ;)

    in GUI
    Basic/Network

    the Check Interval for pppoe set the holdoff setting and not the lcp-echo-interval setting in wanoptions

    holdoff is the redial wait time and lcp-echo-interval the check interval for the connection to isp

    and can u remove the check for smaller values in the gui ?

    Toastman, question regarding new QOS in latest build:
    Why was HTTP, HTTPS, HTTP Proxy WWW moved from position 19 (before L7 filters) to position 36 (after L7 filters)?
    Could this be why I'm still noticing web surfing being not as snappy with the new build? Because L7 is being processed before WWW?
    Thanks.

    My n16 router is currently installed with Toastman v1.28.7501 MIPSR2Toastman-RT K26 USB VLAN-VPN build.

    My question is how do I install latest optware package and transmission? Is there any guide for this?

    Thanks

    Additionally I am a novice on linux. I am searching through google on this and found Entware/Optware and many more refs. So really confused now.
    Some people are suggesting Entware and some are suggesting Optware but there is no guide on how to do this. Also which one is best, Entware or Optware. My primary goal is to run Transmission BT.

    Thanks
     
  29. the_bhagwan

    the_bhagwan Network Guru Member

    After thinking about this for a while I think I know the answer to my first question.
    If the HTTP, HTTPS, HTTP Proxy WWW is moved higher than the L7 filters then things like YouTube will get never get to the L7 filter. YouTube will hit the WWW TCP filter first and pass right through at 90% instead of the desired 40% for inbound media.

    I always used Toastman build for last 3 years mainly due to QOS/VLAN and all the other features. QOS is very important to me. Does Shibby's build has all these features? Can't I run Transmission on Toastman's build?

     
  34. eahm

    eahm LI Guru Member

    Shibby's build has the same QoS I believe but a different BW Limiter. Wait for Shibby to explain you the specs since I don't use QoS that much and I know people are very happy with Toastman's one.

    No idea about Transmission sorry.
     
  35. Elfew

    Elfew LI Guru Member

    Shibby has same QoS.. I use it... and has better BW limiter with more features.
     
  36. lefty

    lefty Networkin' Nut Member

    I think the differences in shibby's QoS implementation and Toastman's is that Toastman's give you the ability to enter more than standard amount of QoS rules and also give you the ability for more static leases for more wider scale deployments. Not sure if shibby's implements that or not, atleast when you go in the about pages it doesn't list the same Toastman features in shibby's about as opposed to Toastman's QoS feature listings. And of course shibby builds have more emphasis on the BW limiter feature as opposed to Toastman's semi stripped version. So there are pros and cons of both as far as QoS is concerned.
     
  37. shibby20

    static-dhcp entries: Toastman 250, Shibby 140. From v106 will be 250 also in mine.
    QoS Classify: Toastman 80, Shibby 80.

    QoS engine is the same.

    Does your mod (K24/build5x-105-EN/tomato-ND-1.28.5x-105-SD-VPN.trx) include TC-ATM overhead calculation for DSL ?
    If yes, I think I will upgrade from tomato-ND-1.28.7633.3-Toastman-IPT-ND-Std.trx to that.

    My router is Buffalo WHR-HP-G54.

    I have the exact same question. Has anyone tried clkfreq=373, 186, 93 on rt-n12u_b ?
    Is the router booting with this value? From forum discussions I understood that clkfreq=480,160,80 is a safe setting, but I want either:

    333, 166, 83 or 373, 186, 93 or 400, 200, 100 in order to preserve CPU / RAM / FSB ratio.

    I belive someone on wl500g.info (Hohmach: 'C clkfreq=400,200,100 роутер после перезагрузки завис, после передергивания питания брикнулся.') said that clkfreq=400,200,100 bricked his router, but I don't understand too well through Google Translate.

    So, which clkfreq options did you try with success? Thanks.

    Careful with overclocking, you can brick your router if you set the wrong frequency

    I've been lurking on these forums for the last few years, since I started using Toastman's Tomato on a Linksys WRT54GS. I recently switched to the Asus RT-N66U with this build:
    Tomato Firmware v1.28.0501 MIPSR2Toastman-RT-N K26 USB VPN
    I updated the bootloader/CFE to 64K, and that process was fairly painless thanks to the instructions on smallnetbuilder.com. Everything has been going well and I've had no complaints at all, except for one weird issue - an issue that finally spurred me to sign up for an account here already. I don't know if anyone can answer this (maybe Toastman himself), but I figured it was worth a shot.

    Since we started using the Asus with the build above, the web monitor searches won't show anything searched on Google. Yahoo searches show up, but no Google. This is no good - we have a house full of Google users. Anyone know why this is? Before I start going to earlier versions, I thought I better ask in case it's something stupid I'm just missing.

    Thought I'd add - I saw one post saying web monitor stopped working when ip traffic monitoring was enabled - tried with it enabled/disabled with no difference.

    I know B/W Limiter for br1/2/3 works on Shibby builds.

    I need this Toastman to work. He has B/W Limiter as well under the QoS section (http://oi46.tinypic.com/292407b.jpg).
     
  51. Elfew

    OK, Toastman sad that he doesnt like BW limiter so he has only basic BW limiter in his builds... he prefer QoS to BW so ask him for br1/br2/br3 options fot QoS rather

    Let's wait for him to see what he has to say about VLAN B/W limiting. The option is there, I want to know from him if we can use it.

    Or, can you please find the posts where he says he doesn't care about B/W limiter and br/1/2/3?

    Also, QoS is a completely different issue than B/W Limiter. I want to be able to give my guests a limited bw, I don't care what they do with it. I don't want to touch the primary br0 and I don't want to QoS my bw, I also may want to QoS their bw in addition of the bw limiter, I want to be able to limit them to a portion of the total bw.

    This is a deal breaker, I have to flash Shibby to use this feature.

    Shibby has everything from toastman and some extras thing... I think you wont see any different... Maybe in speed because shibby has newer wifi driver which rocks... The speed is amazing on rtn builds with my rt16n...

    Both firmwares are great! It is up to you

    Elfew, you don't understand what I am asking, I really want to wait for Toastman to reply because you keep saying things that don't matter.

    I have a list of router that I use, some have Toastman, some Shibby, some RAF. I use all of them, I know the differences between them, I take speed test, I take every other test. This is not the point, I want to know from Toastman if there is a way to b/w limit br1/2/3.

    It's not the language, I understand English is not your first language like you said before, in fact, English is my third language. You are repeating the same things and defending Shibby like he's your brother and I don't care about that.

    Toastman is, obviously, the most qualified person to answer your question. However, he is just one person and probably can't help everyone.
    What I suggest you search for Toastman's own posts on the matter of bandwidth limiter, where you can see for yourself here doesn't think it's a very useful feature compared to QoS. Therefore, most Toastman MOD users are encouraged to use QoS instead.
    I suggest you read at least some of his posts to understand why. You might even change your mind. But if you don't, try Shibby's firmware instead. You'll likely have a more robust and better-tested B/W Limiter, developed by someone who believes this feature is valuable, and therefore more likely to help out with this feature.

    I read few posts from Toastman talking about B/W limiters and QoS, I understand and respect his decision. Elfew was just repeating himself and I needed to hear from someone else as well.

    What I want to know is if it's possible to limit br1/2/3. The B/W limiter is there, I know Shibby did more with it but I don't understand why Toastman left it there if he doesn't like it and why he didn't make possible to limit br1/2/3 if it supposed to be a easy thing do to (don't know if it is).

    Thanks.

    Hi Guys

    Put simply, I do not use this feature, nor indeed vlans, and therefore didn't give it a high priority. I have found the whole BW Limiter going right back to the first, to be relatively unstable, and the more "features" were added, the more unstable it got.

    History - I removed it once because I was fed up with complaints, most of which were to do with the default settings for unlisted clients. Later, I removed that feature and reinstated the original simplified version, which seemed better here. When I get around to it (soon I hope) I will add support for the vlans. So why did I reinstate it? Against my better judgement really, but several people insisted, and I caved in.

    As you may all know, I use this for hotels and condo blocks, it has to be close to 100% reliable. So I don't use wireless on the main router, nor vlans, nor bandwidth limiter, nor anything else that the fanboys have orgasms over. And I haven't seen a reboot or failure for a very long time.

    eahm:

    Just something I found digging through my QoS-folder. This is a script that might work for you; probably just as an inspiration. I'm not sure how this interacts with the QoS-system and you probably have to modify it a bit. Especially the vlan interfaces and the parameters section. What this should do is give the specified interface a simple limit in each direction. Nothing more, no prioritization of traffic.

    Code:
    ## Cleanup

    Toastman, thanks for the reply and Porter, I will give it a try thanks you too.

    Toastman, did you give Shibby's B/W Limiter a try? People leave it disabled anyway most of the time, why not integrate that one? Honestly I like the lightness of your Std mods, nothing I don't need is there, no USB, no NOCAT, no BT. I really think it would be useful to limit guest SSIDs and VLANs simply with Shibby's B/W Limiter. QoS limits services, B/W limiter limits bandwidth, we use both.

    Hi there Toastman,
    Any sense of how soon you'll be able to incorporate Shibby's (which incorporates Vic's) changes? e.g.:
    - Busybox: updated to 1.20.2
    - Miniupnpd: updated to 1.8 (20130207)
    - Libevent: updated to 2.0.21
    - robocfg updated for new Ethernet ports state feature

    I see that the git hasn't been updated in quite a long time....

    Also Shibby, I read in a post by Merlin that there is a miniupnpd config file issue. Will that be a quick rebuild? (i'm afraid there was no mention of impact of the issue)...

    I will wait to see what happens with new wireless drivers. Remember, we don't know anything about what is inside these drivers. Just because a driver that was just released for a particular router is new, doesn't mean it will be optimum or even work at all on other models of router.

    I have not seen any amazing speed increases here, but who knows? That's what the forum is for :D
     
  73. callous

    callous Network Guru Member

    The wireless driver seems the same as previous 2 builds for shibby. No performance difference or decrease. Unless somehow the modders found a different source for the driver, it should be the same.
     
  74. jerrm

    jerrm Network Guru Member

    Shibby updated the RT-N driver in 104, pulled from a later release of the ASUS firmware. I personally have not seen anything remarkable from it - good or bad.

    Toastman hasn't updated yet - not saying he should - it's good to have alternatives and let each mod test different things.
     
  75. RMerlin

    RMerlin Network Guru Member

    Overall, the driver from Asus's build 220 remains the most stable accross the board (no idea about it's cross-compatibility with other devices however).

    Newer driver has improved stability a bit for some users, but a small subset are seeing a decrease in stability/performance. If you want to play it safe, 220 is probably your best bet atm.

    The big change will be once Asus releases something from the newer Broadcom SDK (5.110 if I remember correctly). They are still working on that one.

    @Toast but new driver give as really better performance, not only for RT-N66U.

    AS i see, you have already my commit of:
    - WL 5.100.138.20 SDK: wl binaries, et/bcm57xx drivers, dnsmq module * from Asus RT-N66U sources - 20 may 2012

    You need only update to this
    - Revised/recompiled BCM driver backported from Asus GPL 3.0.0.4.220 - 15 Nov 2012

    this is not a alfa/beta/gamma version or holy grail. It`s a very stable i much faster driver compared to 5.100.138.9 or even to 138.20 from May 2012.
    Thats all.
     
  81. Toastman

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    @shibby20 I'll add the revision as suggested. Thanks!

    I was meaning to say, that whenever Asus bring out their next new driver, I will wait a while to see how it performs before updating it. I just wanted to point out to people that some of these drivers may well be designed for a particular router and we won't know if they are generally "better" or not until we have a beta for people to test on a range of hardware. The "holy grail" will be a wireless driver that clearly gives better performance, has addressed problems of dropouts and slow transfers, and also works well on all models of router.

    There are more posts and discussions on wireless driver issues than on any other subject. Strange really, because actually, wireless is not a guaranteed delivery method, and it is not really a function of a "router". True, it beats having to lay cable to every apartment, but the pain, the pain .....
     
  82. koitsu

    koitsu Network Guru Member

    Asus would do well to provide a ChangeLog associated with their wireless driver. Part of me wonders if they don't provide such because Broadcom's pulling the strings. *grumble*

    Also, wouldn't an updated version of wl also be required for things to work properly, or does wl come with the underlying binary wireless driver?

    Toastman,
    Having problems with LAN Access seemingly not working, can you help me tshoot it?

    I set it up per the guide I posted here... http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.ph...-isolate-a-specific-device.68139/#post-223465

    It was working then 2 days ago I could no longer contact VLAN3 (the new wired vlan) from VLAN1. Both VLANs work fine to/from the Internet... it just seems the LAN Access settings are not taking effect. I even tried opening LAN Access 100% both ways, still no go.

    Of course I have done multiple reboots, tried access from multiple devices, cleared ARP cache and ROUTE looks fine too.

    Any help you can give is highly appreciated!

    If your use the RT branch, there is no real benefit to flashing this. The RT-N branch has the newer driver updates from November 2012 as discussed above with shibby20 and rmerlin, so you *may* find an improvement in performance.

    And today, a present for those with the older routers, this K2.4 MIPSR1 release *should* be just as stable as 7633.3, but brought more up to date. ;) Just a small note - I no longer use these older routers except as AP's, so it hasn't been tested "online".
