v1.23.8622 -RAF ND USB St and AsusWL500gP, access restriction, full 32MB ram

Discussion in 'Tomato Firmware' started by failo, Mar 26, 2009.

    First of all I would like to thank vicek for his work on this firmware. The USB support works like a charm! There is something that I found using it, and don't know of this is a bug or the way it should be. So my usb is, mounting without a problem, but after a while, I can't really say how long it takes... but it gets unmounted. Is it a bug?
    One more thing occurred to me. I always had to enable the full amount of ram with this code via telnet:
    nvram set sdram_init=0x0009
    nvram set sdram_ncdl=0x10308
    nvram commit
    reboot

    but now it seems nothing has happend! I noticed that the telnet msg has changed (i suppose, don't really remember how it was before) to smth. like this:

    root@xxx:/tmp/home/root#

    I reckon it was only root@xxx: before. BUt tell me if I'm wrong!

    There is one more thing. I cant really setup access restriction. I'm used to the way linksys is doing it: like 1, 2, 3, 4 rule and the last one is restrict all. It doesn't seem to work on Tomato! I was looking for the answer for few hour now, so please don't blame me for my ignorance. I want to setup 2 rules, just for acces to the internet for a start, wired and wireless separate (both only with MAC adresses), and then one more to restrict all IP that aren't in the list.

    Thanks for any help!

    a) Tell us the device you connect, direct to USB or hanged to and USB hub?, memory stick or HDD? file format? ext2, ext3, fat?
    b) Perform a restore defaults selecting nvram erase through... and then reboot the router, the full amount (29.9MB will be recognized)
    c) Yes, the promt has changed in this version, nothing important.
    d) Use IP/MAC ARP binding, it's more simple than Access Restriction for the target you are seeking for. Read this post where I explain the setup of the function, http://www.linksysinfo.org/forums/showpost.php?p=342682&postcount=648

    Thanks for your fast replay vicek! Things aren't good with my router now: it's bricked now! Lan leds are up as they should be, but the power led and wireless are off. I can't tftp to the router to reflash it. The router doesn't go into recovery mode too. I tried the debrick method for wl500gP, with the pins from ddwrt: http://tinyurl.com/clzlv7 but with no luck. After your response I did restore to defaults selecting nvram erase in tomato GUI, but full ram hasn't showed up on the info page. So I did put the "full ram" code once again through telnet. No change. Then I tried the telnet once again with different code to enable full ram:
    nvram set sdram_init=0x0009
    nvram set sdram_ncdl=0 <=== read somewhere it works too!
    nvram commit
    reboot

    After reboot, no changes at all. At this point tomato was working as normal. Than I tried to resolve the problem with my USB stick, which is connected directly to the router usb ports. I realized it was plugged in into the upper USB port which is for printers only in original ASUS firmware so I removed it, and plugged it into the bottom one. Checked if it was mounted in tomato - it was. After that I went to sleep. When I woke up the power led was off, an the router wasn't working any more... it seems it is dead. Normally this router runs really hot, but it was cold when I woke up! Hope you have some suggestions...

    Regards

    Use the recovery tool from Asus, It works fine for me till now. (WL500gP v1).

    Good luck.

    Good news! my router is reincarnated! :) Really you can't kill it whatever you do to it! I couldn't use asus recovery tool, cause I'm on a mac! The method with pins, didn't work out, but I grounded the flash chips, few sparks here and there and yeah the power led went up!
    Thanks vicek for your time! Still cant enable full ram but will look closer to it tomorrow. If I good remember, I flashed from asus standard firmware to tomato once and the whole amount of ram was already enabled in tomato! Will do that tomorrow!
    More on my USB Stick:
    Connection: directly to routers usb port
    Format: Fat
    Size: 8GB <- Maybe it matters!
    IN tomato I have only Core USB and USB 2.0 enabled, and in USB Storage every option enabled!

    Once again thanks!

    Hey, Vicek! Some more news about my router!
    After I managed to get it to work It went dead after some time. It is as I found it before, I mean like in previous post! The USB stick was plugged for the whole time to check the mounting issue. But now there is no power led, and wireless... ****!
    Must be smth about your firmware!

    Awaiting a response!

    Regards

    The firmware can't kill the router once the unit has been flashed, I think will be something related with the hardware itself or higher consumption from any USB device.. Are you sure that the power supply is OK?. Many people (included me is using this firmware without issues.

    Vic,
    Is the USB part of your v23.8622 firmware based on v22 of USB mod? If so, I'd suggest you to rebuild it with the v23. v22 had a very bad bug in some kernel level changes (see here).

    Although failo's problems seem to be related to something else, I would not exclude a possibility of the same bug causing at least some of these weird issues...

    Teddy Bear, correct, it's merged with your version.

    I'm about to debrick my router again. I will install teddy_bear's version for now, and wait for victek's version (I really like IP/MAC limiter). Teddy_bear's can you have a look at this http://www.linksysinfo.org/forums/showthread.php?t=60825 , I'm just wondering if such a high Ram usage is normal. When running with half of the memory (16MB), I couldn't see such a drastic increase of ram usage...

    When you have time pleas explain me the access restrictions in tomato! Was looking for it in the wiki, but the explanation was very brief. Here is what I want to do:

    I'm restricting access to the internet using mac addresses only. I want to have two rules for wireless and wired clients separate.

    ID Kind Internet Access
    01. standard example Rule in tomato
    02 All except Disallow
    03 All except Disallow

    So the problem is, when the rule ID03 is enabled the first isn't working. When I change the rule ID02 or 03 to Kind Following, everybody can use the internet access from my access point! I tried to do it analog to Linksys firmware, 1, 2, 3 rule and the last Disable/Disallow all. But then nobody has internet access...

    Thanks again for your help!

    failo,
    I don't know if installing my v23 build will solve your issues - they might be completely unrelated to that bug... However, plesae report your results here - it would be interesting to know.
    On a subject of memory usage check out this post.
    As for access restrictions, I can't help you as I don't use them. But I believe I saw some posts about them here - try to search the forum.

    I installed teddy_bear version, and the same thing happened. This and the problem with enabling 32MB of ram made me think that it might be some hardware disfunction. I installed original tomato, tried to enable full ram and no luck. Now I'm running asus stock firmware to check, usb issue. Will report soon

    failo, if this helps I explain how I did, I had similar problem few months ago and I thought in a damage in the RAM chip, let's go:
    _ Use the recovery utility from Asus, first upload nvram_clear.trx file and after it the recover.trx file.
    _ Install dd-wrt later using also the recovery utility from Asus, first the mini release and after the standar release. Read the procedure how to do it.. I think is in the zipped file I'll post you later. After it you should see 29MB Ram available in dd-wrt status menu.
    _ Upgrade to Tomato using any of the releases. Once you updated do an nvram erase and after a reboot, then 29,9MB RAM should appear in your overview screen.

    If you don't know where to download these files and the utility program for recovery (WL500gP v1, attention) here is the link where I keep these files: http://victek.is-a-geek.com/Repositorios/ASUS/WL500GP/Recovery Utilities/

    Good luck

    Here is my, log, maybe you will find smth that is causing the problem. I tried the Asus stock firmware and it crashed too, leaving the router dead. It might be a overheating problem. I don't want to give up on this router!

    It look a very clean startup log but as you said the problem arised also with the stock firmware... so, unplug the USB device and let the router for a few hour to discard any problem in the USB section... and could be a Power supply problem, it's a very stable device and these symptoms are most likely caused by power supply.

    So, after 1 day ad 12 hours of uptime I can say the problem is solved. I'm running victeks latest mod with USB support. The problem as I suppose was not entirely debricked router. After it went dead on asus original firmware I debricked it correctly (always read the guide from top to bottom folks) and now it runs as it should. No problems enabling full ram and so on... Thanks again. And I really love USB and RAF options in my firmware.

    Thank you all!

    I have to sadly admit that problems with my router still continue. I don't have a multimeter to check the power supply but I will get one soon to check power supply malfunction. So back to the problem: I found that without wireless everything works, no crashes etc. but with wireless on it takes like 3 hours till it crashes. While still <3 h i can connect to the router wirelessly and it works as it should do but after I can't. The router is "dead" - the leds are on but no internet and i can't log in to the router. after I i do a hard restart the power led is off and the router is bricked.

    WiFI problem?

    running the latest victek 23.2 ND on v1 asus wl500gP

    failo, I've seen something like this before. Try to substitute your power supply with a known good one. (Multimeter check isn't good enough).
