    hi, this is a very nice and very very very easy firmware for wrt54 routers

    i have a WRT54GL and works like a charm

    here are a few wishes :)

    i would love to be able to set a lan mac filter
    at the moment i can only set wireless client mac filter

    yes i know i can use the access restriction feature
    i have used that :), but why not making it simpler

    and a more important request i believe ...
    i don't know if it's possible

    but i would like the mac filter to be able to really filter the access of the client to the router itself, not only to the internet

    meaning, if mac is not in the list .. client cannot access router, cannot be given dhcp ip .. no access at all

    if possible, it would be very nice
    great firmware anyway :p:biggrin:

    Add DynDNS support for eNom, please.
  3. orangekay

    orangekay LI Guru Member

    My wishes:

    1. Fully functional wget or curl and/or support for OpenWRT packages so we can install them ourselves (would allow anyone to use any DDNS provider they like with or without direct support for it).

    2. Stop needlessly redeclaring the same font family over and over again in the CSS and/or stop loading the default stylesheet when "custom" is selected.

    3. Fix positioning of JavaScript close boxes that appear on mouseovers of certain table cells (resize a window while one is visible and those boxes just float there).

    4. Make the download a regular zip file. I shouldn't have to download a new application just to unpack somebody's favorite esoteric compression format.

    1 - Option to assign WAN port to LAN ports when in client modes.
    2 - Make ACK adjustment independent of WMM. Allow disable.

    wow, i guess people are just loving tomato
    this became a wish list post :D, maybe make it a sticky [just an idea]

    what do you think about putting this in the FAQ section ? [just an idea] :biggrin:

    Max Monroe LI Guru Member

    I love Tomato, i'm using it on a Linksys WRT54GL. I'd like to see no-ip.org added to the DDNS selection; I manage using it as "custom", so it's not really a pressing issue for me, but I figure it wouldn't be very hard to do... thanks for doing all this, anyway... btw., are there alternative ways to make a donation, other than :angry: paypal :thumbdown: ? Based on where I live, those nice people don't seem to need my money, and I can't have an account...

    All you need is a credit card. On the PayPal payment form just leave the user name blank. Fill in everything else and hiyt PAY. It works.

    A VPN-Server running on Tomato like on my old Zyxelwall would be nice.

  11. lordc

    lordc Guest

    Extra tools!

    • vfat and mmc module to use a SD/MMC card (standard hack on WRT54 series)
    • tor anonimizer service
    • kaidstation game tunneling service
    • Mora documentation (blocking trafic, QoS, etc)
    • Some kind of black/white block list (like peerguardia) with realtime update engine

    It's now on the FAQ section ! :biggrin:

  13. nsumner

    nsumner LI Guru Member

    The feature I would like is the ability in port forward rules to limit this for only certain IP ranges. IE forward port x if the source IP is x.x.x.x/24 or whatnot.
  14. tievolu

    tievolu Network Guru Member

    My vote would be for the ability to install OpenWRT ipkg's.
  15. azeari

    azeari LI Guru Member

    i'd like a vpn server too :p kinda makes sense since the router's my home network's gateway.

    oh and 1 thing, i noticed this filter ident port previously while i was using thibor. unchecking it allowed all my coms to connect to galaxynet irc as though something responded to the ident request it sends out. didn't really poke around then, and i'm guessing it had an oident server running on e router. would be nice to have that too
  16. shadow2k6

    shadow2k6 LI Guru Member

    WRTSL54GS support. I know a thread was already created on this and answered by Jonathan, but support for this device would be great.
  17. qarews

    qarews LI Guru Member

    great :biggrin:

    btw while we are wishing, we can also donate :)
    i hope paypal is accepting romanian mastercard

    PS: if taken into account, i hope all these wishes will not make tomato any slower
    because this is what i love the most about it and it's interface [viva AJAX]

    My only 2 wishes are

    1) In the basic/indentification tab the domain name field could do with more characters being allowed in it as the maximum seems to be around 16 which means that I cannot fit my whole domain name in the field.

    2) That with all these requests including for heavyweight things such as VPN servers that Tomato does not become bloated like many other WRT firmwares. This is the reason why I moved from DD-WRT and I am sure many other people moved for similar reasons. So please please please don't add 10s or 100s of options that most people will never need and spoil this great firmware.

    Surely if people want to run for example a VPN server they should use a fit for purpose firmware that already has one included such as DD-WRT for example. As to open a word document you would not try to open it with Excel (or try to re-write excel to open it), you would use the right software to do the job which is Word.
  20. andersonbc

    andersonbc LI Guru Member

    I agree with the "please don't bloat Tomato" request! The domain name field request (more characters) is also something I have been meaning to email Jonathon about...
  21. orangekay

    orangekay LI Guru Member

    I don't want bloat either, but package management would allow everyone to run everything they wanted and nothing they didn't. Odds are good people who want a bunch of Halfquake Warhalo nonsense aren't going to want captive portals or VPN servers as well, but there's no reason why they shouldn't both be able to add individual components to the main build.
  22. turbo53

    turbo53 Network Guru Member

    Only 1 feature that I'd like. I've emailed Jon requesting this, but maybe if others want this too he would implement it.

    On the Static DHCP page I'd like to be able to specify DHCP lease times on a "per MAC" basis. Right now, there is only 1 system wide value.

    I give most of my devices an "infinite" lease, but there is one exception: my Vonage adapter.

    Here's why:

    I use DNSMASQ for DNS resolution, but the Vonage adapter somehow manages to "resolve up" to the actual ISP DNS servers. When the Vonage adapter renews its IP address, the DNS for the adapter shows "" for about 2 seconds, then it changes to the DNS addresses of my ISP. This means that with an infinite lease, if my ISP changes the DNS addresses (this actually happened to me once) then the Vonage adapter will stop working. I need to insure that the Vonage adapter renews its IP on a regular basis to pick up any changes to the DNS addresses.

    Right now, I use the DNSMASQ Custom Configuration field to enter a custom line for the Vonage adapter, but a more general solution would be nice. Maybe other people have the same need for different reasons.

    I'd like to see a day/week/month/year option in graphic bandwith usage...

    Don't know if its possible due to hardware limitations, but I think this would be nice!
  24. azeari

    oo that would be nice too! i guess its simply a matter of rephrasing the data u see into graphical form. Year might be abit farfetched though :p

    tekunix LI Guru Member

    SD/MMC Option

    MMC.O Driver for the SD/MMC Mod... Same enable/disable option for SD Mod as DD-WRT... That would be great...

    Probably the reason why a package system would be best. Implementing each package into the GUI would probably be an interesting challenge though.

  32. pharma

    pharma Network Guru Member

    My wishlist is that the Tomato's author (Jon) stick to his vision of what he expects from this firmware and not worry about what other people had in other firmwares (DD-WRT, OpenWRT, etc...).

    The primary reason the majority of people are using this firmware is Jon's vision and his excellent work, and I'm just glad he decided to share it with us. Whatever he decides to add in future releases I'm confident will carry on to make Tomato's firmware light, fast and unique.
  33. Reiper

    Reiper LI Guru Member

    My thoughts exactly!
  34. digitalgeek

    digitalgeek Network Guru Member

    Toy's are fun, but let's keep the firmware's strength in mind... if we want toy's we'll go else where. Tomato, as already, stated is light and fast: ---> lets keep it that way. :thumbup:

    :) i prefer light fast tomatoes than fat slumpy ones

    PS: may the creator decide which features can be added/usefull without affecting performance

    QOS / View Details enhancement.

    Using QOS / View Details I can see all incoming /outgoing connections.

    I like to see bandwidth used by each connection/direction and the ability to kill a connection.

    Reason for request:
    It's really annoying when i player joins my hosted game and the game goes on hold while the player downloads the files from me (it would be quicker to download from server). The game doesn't have the feature to kick users.

    I thought I could, but it only shows my computers and xboxs not the routers and ap clients.
  39. tievolu

    tievolu Network Guru Member

    Weird, I can see my other router in there, connected via WDS. It shows up as a device called "wds0.49153", and displays the signal strength.

    Obviously, the device list on any particular router will only display the devices connected to it - WDS nodes not directly connected to this node will not show up.
  40. Zaka

    Zaka LI Guru Member

    This is because you are using the startup script that enables WDS+WPA.

    If you use WDS+WEP you can not see the signal strengths of the connected WDS nodes.

    /request -->> Signal strength monitor for all flavors of WDS
  41. ntest7

    ntest7 Network Guru Member

    I really like the fast-light approach.
    But I would like SNMP so I can do remote monitering.
    An installable add-on would be great.
  42. digitalgeek

    digitalgeek Network Guru Member

    (here I go asking for some toys)

    lots of these ideas are great, but I agree with ntest7 that if some of these extras people are asking for were (easily) installed add-ons we only have to bloat our on units with only the features we want/need. So by default Tomato is mean and lean, but we could add one or two extras instead of all the extras thus not over bloating.

    Signal strength for all flavors of WDS

    Having the signal strength for all flavors of WDS (including no encryption) is only thing missing for me to switch all of my WRTs (currently Thibor) over to Tomato. Of course, when I switch over, I will feel compelled to make a donation...
  45. bradtem

    bradtem Network Guru Member

    A couple of wishes:

    a) A way to forward WOL packets from outside to off (no-ARP) machines on the inside, or the broadcast address.

    b) If you have multiple external (static) IPs, one of which is going for the NAT of course, a way to request that one or more of the others be bridged through to the internal network, allowing systems there to use the external IP (and an internal one if they wish). But still do QoS on those packets. Typical application -- an asterisk server or other server that wants a real routable address and also wants to talk to internal devices. Extra credit -- only allow the external IP packets to come from specified ports (1-4) so devices on other ports can't be outside even if they try.
  46. Trademark

    Trademark Network Guru Member

    Having just upgraded from Thibor15c, I would like to see all the Firewall check-box options from that firmware in Tomato.

    You know like: SPI Firewall Enable/Disable, Filter (Proxy, Java Applets, ActiveX, Cookies, P2P Applications), Block Portscans, Filter IDENT(Port 113).

    I would feel better about the level of security Tomato is applying knowing these were visually on or off with a check-box.

    And maybe a command line to run scripts would be handy since I am unable to telnet into my router.

    Otherwise, I really like what you have done. Thanks.
  47. qarews

    qarews LI Guru Member

    you can use scripts in tomato under administration/scripts
    and also telnet works on port 23 :)
    also pressing the router button for 20 seconds opens a passw-less daemon on port 233
  48. Trademark

    Trademark Network Guru Member

    I know about the script boxes (Start up, Firewall, etc.), which one do I use to see a current reading like cpu speed, memory usage, etc?

    My mac doesn't want to connect to the router via telnet. Still working on it.

    Knew about the SES button options, but thanks anyhow.

    I don't think I'm ready for Tomato just yet. Its great firmware with a number of cool features, but I'm still too accustomed to Thibor.

    Hi @ All,

    i found the following on the new official FAQ ->
  50. Rinkel

    Rinkel Network Guru Member

    My wish

    My wish is to make a QoS classification on a lan 10/100 port.

    I share one lan port with my neighbours. But sometime they overload my WAN with stupid bittorrent upload. Now I have made a restriction on mac adress. The problem is that i have to check every week if everybody is using the same mac adress. I dont have any idea what they do on the network. My neighbours lives in a student house.

    In the past I have seen a linksys firmware which made that possible. But i forgot which one this was.

  52. der_Kief

    der_Kief Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    Hi @ All,

    i'm highly pleased with the functionallity of Tomato and so i have only 1 wish.

    I would be nice if the bandwidth history could be saved to an external (on the internet) FTP/HTTP server. This would be usefull for people which have no computer (internal) running for 24 hours a day. Maybe Jon can implement this into Tomato :)

  53. tievolu

    tievolu Network Guru Member

    There's always jffs of course, but if you don't want to risk burning out your flash memory you could configure the bandwidth monitoring data to be saved to RAM, and then set up a cron job to periodically upload the file /tmp/var/lib/misc/rstats-history.gz (is that the right one?) to an FTP server using /usr/bin/ftpput.

    Restoring the data after a reboot would be a bit clunky because you'd have to grab the file yourself and upload it to the router using the restore function. However, there is also /usr/bin/ftpget, so I think Jon could implement this functionality in the GUI along with the other options fairly easily.
  54. der_Kief

    der_Kief Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    Thx. I created a cron job with:

    cru a Stats_Upload "0,60 * * * * ftpput -u **** -p **** xxxx /tmp/var/lib/misc/rstats-history.gz rstats-history.gz"

    but this doesn't work. I get the following error in systemlog:

    Jan 24 19:00:01 router cron.warn crond[75]: failed user root parsing 0,60 * * * * /usr/bin/ftpput -u **** -p **** xxxx /tmp/var/lib/misc/rstats-history.gz rstats-history.gz #Stats_Upload#

    Manually executed in telnet the ftp upload work well. What i'm doing wrong ?


    Found mistake. First parameter range is 0-59 i made it 0,60 (i'm new to crond :biggrin: ) Now it works. Thanks tievolu for this good advice :thumbup:

  55. tievolu

    tievolu Network Guru Member

    No problem! :) There's only one thing I'm not sure of - have you checked that that is the correct file to backup? In my last post I was pretty much guessing based on the name of the file. There are several files in that folder:

    # ls -l /tmp/var/lib/misc
    -rw-rw-rw-    1 root     root           40 Jan 24 16:27 rstats-history.gz
    -rw-rw-rw-    1 root     root            0 Jan 24 16:20 rstats-source
    -rw-rw-rw-    1 root     root          297 Jan 24 16:27 rstats-speed.gz
    -rw-rw-rw-    1 root     root            4 Jan 24 16:27 rstats-stime
    -rw-rw-rw-    1 root     root            4 Jan  1  1970 wantime
    It's clearly either rstats-history.gz or rstats-speed.gz, but I'm not sure which! (I haven't tried this at all myself :) )
  56. der_Kief

    der_Kief Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    I tried it with rstats-history.gz and it seem to be the right one. Thanks again :)

    The ability to label the MAC addresses in the wireless filter section. I like to know to who's system each MAC address belongs to.

  64. Rinkel

    Rinkel Network Guru Member

    No, that's not what I have write down.

    What I want is to make a QoS rule which work on one lan poort in the router. So that every user which is connected to that port have a combined 32 KB upload.

    Something someone on the netwerk is uploading so much information that the download/ping times is pushed down to unworkable limits.
  65. der_Kief

    der_Kief Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    Hi Rinkel,

    maybe you should try WRT Script Generator. You can setup upload/download limits to ip/mac. It makes no difference on which LAN port they are connected !

  66. GeeTek

    GeeTek Guest

    @ Rinkel - Until there is port based QOS, you may consider using a second router (and double nat) to control all of the traffic to your neighbors. You can easily limit all traffic passing through the second router to any speed cap you wish. It would also give you fully independent QOS rules for them which may also be nice to have.
  67. Rinkel

    Rinkel Network Guru Member

    I have already on my wishlist a new router. I thinking about a new router with 802.1N wireless, a USB poort for storage sharing and gigabit ports.

    The 802.1N market is new and to expensief. So i wait a few months before rolling out that idea.

    I was thinking and tried a new thing on my router. My dhcp router is giving out IP numbers from . is my own private range of the network. i use the dynamic dhcp for putting my own machines in that range.

    I made the follow rule


    lets see if this is helping.
  68. GeeTek

    GeeTek Guest

    It looks like you figured out a way to fix the problem. Another thing to do is limit the total number of connections per IP address. Peer to Peer file sharing programs can open several hundred connections at the same time. You can limit the total number of connections per IP address in the range of the neighbors computers with a firewall script. In addition to the bandwidth cap that you assign to category "A", the connection limits will also help to reduce the load on your system, and help reduce the negative impact of their abusive traffic. There is a link in the FAQ sticky thread.

    Edit - the script is actually on the WiKi page. Here is the command to enter. Go to "Administration" - "Scripts" - "Firewall" and paste in this line ;

    iptables -I FORWARD -p tcp --syn -m iprange --src-range -m connlimit --connlimit-above 125 -j DROP

    It will limit every IP address in the range to 125 connections.

    mikea128 LI Guru Member

    a request for CALLER ID support for any connected SIP devices/software. this can be accomplished if someone ports the network caller ID software known as NCID (http://ncid.sourceforge.net/) to run on a WRT based router (via Tomato, OpenWRT, DD-WRT, etc.).

    Currently, you need a unix/linux machine to run the NCID server (NCIDD), while the client runs on pretty much any OS. Unfortunately, most users don't have access to such a machine...except for that little linky we've all got already on our network. Further, by integrating it in the router, you no longer need a hub to distribute the packets to the server machine (currently, a switch will simply direct them to the SIP device directly, bypassing the NCID server).

    I know Tomato is to stay lean and light, but I think this would be a very nice addition to everyone that uses any sort of VOIP.
  71. larsrya8

    larsrya8 LI Guru Member

    Sounds like something the DD-WRT VOIP edition can probably handle. Maybe a Tomato VOIP edition could be created... or you could make it yourself. :wink:
  72. GeeTek

    GeeTek Guest

    I do not believe the DD-WRT voip version has caller ID. I think it is simply optimized for VOIP operation, much the way you can do with some QOS rules in Tomato. I wonder where you would plug in the LCD display to show the numbers ??
  73. larsrya8

    larsrya8 LI Guru Member

    A quick check of DD-WRT's wiki shows that it has something called SIPatH in it's VOIP version. However, SIPatH doesn't seem to have any CallerID functions.

    Still, Tomato is about being light, not feature laden. Soon you'll see requests for Chillispot, Xbox Kaid, Sputnik...

  76. larsrya8

    larsrya8 LI Guru Member

    I sooo called it.

    Get DD-WRT or OpenWRT if you want Kai. :tongue:
  77. mikea128

    mikea128 LI Guru Member

    you put a client on each PC/Mac/Tivo/etc device to display the caller ID. the server component that analyzes the SIP packets would simply reside on the router.

    DD-WRT VOIP does not support this feature unfortunately.
  78. GeeTek

    GeeTek Guest

    Since the call traffic is forwarded the client, why not have the client de-code the caller ID info, since it already speaks the protocol and has the ability to display the info ? Why would your router need to be involved ? Is it not a SIP server that is sending the stream in the first place ? Simply analyse the "components" that the SIP server is sending. I see no logic in the redundancy of trying to make the router do it again !
  79. lovingHDTV

    lovingHDTV LI Guru Member

    The reason I would love to have this feature? Currently I run YAC on a computer, when I get a phone call it then sends the callerId information to all my other computers, and my TV. If I'm watching a show, when the callerId info comes up on my TV I can easily choose to pause the show and answer the phone or ignore the phone. Phone call screening from the luxury of my couch.

    For what I'm doing today I have to keep the YAC server up and running all the time. This is not ideal. If my router could do this functionality for me I would not have to have a computer running all the time.

    So it is not for a SIP client that this is useful, but other things.

    I saw somewhere that for requesting IP address from DHCP you can specify a preferred Ip address. that would be great option to have for WAN side DHCP client.

    if you're sip "client" is a vonage device that's an actual piece of hardware, then there is no client on your PC per se. It's just the phones in your house. Sure, I use phones with standard caller ID support here, but that does nothing to get the list onto my computer, which is what i want.

    I'd appreciate a "WAN Down" script, which is executed when the
    WAN connection goes down. Just a counterpart to the existent
    "WAN Up" script. TIA.

    Hi, here are some wishlist;

    1) Two/Three SSID wireless networks... too dificult?...
    2) CPU overclocking?
    3) GPIO out with SES button enable/disable function (i.e, an additional hardwired buzzer sounds when WAN goes down).
    4) Energy saving function (slowdown CPU clock) when CPU_load decreases.

    I know, 2-3-4 are hardware related but I hope software controlled, no?

    And again, Jon, congratulations for your excellent job, we started loving tomato in Spain. By the way, if need an spanish translation of the GUI, contact me.. for free!.

    Please, don't turn Tomato into a second DD-WRT, which is
    already suffering severely under the burden of its gimmicks!

    Check the Vonage Forum at www.vonage-forum.com - there are a few applications that allow you to download your Vonage call logs to Excel or other formats. A simple modem any one of a number of applications could also keep call logs for you.

    As I read this I couldn't stop me to say something about your wishes :biggrin: it was too obvious to miss the opportunity:

    ad 1. Did you ever think of using OpenWRT instead of tomato? That would make installing OpenWRT packages a lot easier!

    ad 2+3. Same as 1. Why are u using tomato if you don't like the itf?

    ad 4. In my opportunity the developer has the right to decide what format to use for packaging and delivery. If you have problems with 7-zip, then try p7z on linux or 7-zip/izarc/winrar on windows :rolleyes:

    As for my wishes:

    Keep on doing what you like: That's a guarantee that the tomato firmware will stay as great as it already is! THX for providing it.

    Configuration Export Option

    Previously posted elsewhere. Realize now this is the right place.

    I think it would be a good idea if when using Tomato (v1.06) to backup it's configuration (Admin => Configuration => Backup Configuration) it only backed up those NVRAM registers that Tomato directly allows access to via its web interface. Currently it appears that it backs up all NVRAM registers much like executing 'NVRAM show' at the command prompt.

    I was hoping to Backup my current configuration, reset all NVRAM settings to factory defaults, and then restore from the backup but doing so restores NVRAM registers that I was trying to clear such as NC_GatewayName, NC_Homepage, snmpd_sysname, etc.

    It was suggested that two options be provided on the backup configuration screen: (1) Write NVRAM to file, (2) Write (only) Tomato settings to file.

    when using the dynamic ip update function how about adding an option to flush the dnsmasq cache or kill/reload the process upon ip change?

    i use pppoe and occasionally get "bumped" by my isp (randomly) which results in a new ip. attempts to resolve my domain name after an ip change are failing (pointing to my old ip) for quite a while.

    using my isp's dns directly (no router) works almost immediately.

    thanks ;)

    Being able to ALLOW websites in Access Restriction and block all else.

    I have a problem with people DL'ing "free" programs and well as visiting social sites when homework should be done.
    One computer will need everything blocked temporarily the other I would like to limit to children's sites.

    probably there is a chance for other nice statistk graphs, like in the freifunk firmware ??

    - Signal/noise ratio
    - system load 1,5,15
    - Bandwith
    - Nat connections, ARp, etc.

    and of course, snmp build in.

    Best regards OnkelM

    thought i would look into this again and came across my old posts. while excel format is certainly nice, it's not nearly as nice as having it pop up on my computer while the phone is ringing. i could use the vonage website if i just wanted logs.

    any other thoughts? this seems like it'd be a great openwrt package, which dd-wrt, tomato, etc. could then adapt if they so choose.

    *Edit - looks like vonalink may have something that actually does what i want finally. maybe not as nice as NCID running on my linky, but i think it'll do. vonalink and any other solution beyond the WRT router will require an additional hub (not switch) to get the SIP packets broadcast to the machine doing the SIP packet sniffing. Not a huge deal, but again, not as clean as NCID integrated onto the perfect linux server we all already have.

    I just got a WRT350n which is running now with my cable-con.
    Too bad I'm not able to run Tomato on that thing. DD-WRT is just creeping me out...

    Will there ever be a Tomato-Version for that box? Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeze. :kiss:

    Edit: I would pay 30 US-$ for that version. The dd-wrt "QoS" ain't worth that name...

    With the new port forwarding rules allowing a rule to be restricted to an IP source address, what about restricting by name->IP lookup? As an example, if I want to allow a co-worker to access my system and he's on an ISP that gives him a dynamic external, it would be helpful to be able to make the rule allow the DDNS name he uses rather than updating the external IP every time it's changed.
