    No, it seems this is not the problem.. let me try to download a shared file for my backup and test what you explained.

    Thanks :)

    An updated release Tomato RAF 1.23.8623.1 ND + USB features by Teddy Bear is available for download. Remember, it's an standard version suitable for router with 32MB Ram and USB port like Asus WL500gP & WL520gU... not for WRT54Gx Linksys router.

    You can download as usual from this link http://victek.is-a-geek.com

    Changelog:

    Updated to v23 Teddy Bear release.

    And, YES, nvram erase and new configuration from scratch is needed. Sorry for that but it's safer.

    Edit: New release RAF 1.23.8623.1 ND has been updated to be compatible with IE7 & 8 browser

    Thanks for the new build Victek!

    As always, I did an NVRAM erase cycle. Tried it on my Asus WL-520GU. However, the settings selection on the left column is gone ??

    No reset or NVRAM would bring back the settings selection. I'm back to the previous build.

    Hi, i have a little issue with the traffic stats, after about 15days of uptime, traffic isnt counted anymore...a reboot solves this issue, but its really annoying as its running stable except from this...

    Toink, it's Ok now? .. I can't reproduce the issue you mentioned, it works ok in my ASUS WL500gP.

    Thanks for following up, Victek :thumbup:

    It's still the same. I tried flashing via the TFTP.exe at least ten times. No dice. It's still the same.

    I have no extra Asus WL-520GU at the moment so I can't make a comparison.

    Could it be because of the new default theme? IE8? ... Beats me really :confused: but it does work ok with version Tomato_RAF_1.23.8622_ND_USB_Std as well as teddy_bear's tomato-1.23-ND-USB-v23-Std...

    I will try to flash back to the OEM firmware and then flash with your latest build

    I'll keep you posted :)

    Thanks!

    Do it simpler, write in your browser http://(router IP)/admin-upgrade.asp and then you can access directly to the upgrade menu..
     
  15. Toink

    Toink Network Guru Member

    Yep! I tried that one and actually saved the entire links to notepad. LoLz!

    By the way, it's still the same. No Settings links in the left column. I tried flashing to your latest (USB) build from the OEM firmware; from teddy-bear's; from your previous 8622 build. All the same result after each upgrade (with NVRAM erase cycles)....


    Anyways, I think I'm gonna stick to build 8622 for a while. I got another Asus WL-520GU coming on Tuesday. I'll try to compare the results after I flash with your latest build.

    My hunch is the latest default Absolon theme... but of course I may be wrong :)

    mm, just curious about this issue.. toastman upgraded without problem... but he have an Asus WL500gP v2.. not an Asus WL520gU. The size of the firmware is around 3.7MB .. and I don't know if something is at the end of capacity, by the way, did you clean cookies in your browser? .. could be one of the issues...
     
  17. Toink

    Toink Network Guru Member

    Hi Victek!

    Yes, I always clear my browser cache every time I close it.

    Hmm... I'm also at a loss as to what could be causing it. Perhaps deleting some other themes could lessen the size of the firmware? I'm guessing since it's integrated in the firmware, there's no way I could delete any unwanted themes manually... :) But if it's possible, I'm willing to learn :)

    To anyone with an Asus WL-520GU who upgraded to Victek's latest build, kindly post if you are experiencing the same issue as mine?

    Works great !
    I have only one question for the moment :)p) i would know why the tcp vegas changed from 2/3/3 to 2/6/2 ?

    Edit :
    Strange things, i'm unable to change anything in the advanced wireless setting using GUI when i'm logged with telnet at the same time. It displays an wl_country error. Could someone confirm ?
     
  19. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    :biggrin::biggrin:peyton, I used the same settings as Jon Zarate implemented in the official release, there is not other reason for this change.

    Edit too: I never tried this job at the same time as one telnet session was opened... but seems logical that this is the way it should be to avoid multitasking not updated in the GUI.. no?, Interesting thing you posted, go to try .. :)

    I just did (WRT54GL) changing from the GUI (country/region.. and saving) with an open Telnet session and also changing from telnet with advanced wireless GUI open, no error, changes are ok and stored in the nvram.... if I refresh the GUI then I see changes in the settings applied via Telnet or viceversa (nvram show | grep wl).

    How about an annoying "nvram erase through..."?

    Thanks

    peyton, i dont see any change in tcp vegas. 2/3/3 as always, using 1.23.8515 ND. i didnt do the nvram erase after upgrading from .8514 though. Jon changed it in original tomato? when??
     
  21. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    :biggrin::biggrin: kabar, I got you.. you didn't erase nvram and it shows the nvram settings you had with the previous version... but, yes, 1.23.8515 have the settings peyton mentioned and I changed as it's in the official release.

    Cheers :)
     
  22. peyton

    peyton LI Guru Member

    As you noticed i already made a erase nvram because i saw the tcp vegas changed ! i'll try to reproduce the error message i get in the gui when i was on telnet. :p

    edit : i can't reproduce it ! :eek:

    got ya too! :) thats why i didnt perform nvram clear. it makes me nuts! should i do it or just change the vegas settings instead? btw how did u know Jon changed it? no new versions are available. accidentaly ;) ? any ideas why did he changed it? cheers!
     
  27. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    kabar , there are many opinions about the right settings for TCP Vegas, there is a big post in the forum talking about the suitable and best settings for it, as you might know TCP Vegas started with release 1.22 and I did not read many opinion about the right settings, What I got in conclusion is that TCP Vegas is not recommended when you have wireless connection.

    thanks alot. gonna read :) ive got one more question. the 'limit unlisted machines' seems to work great for me, beautiful feature, but it works only when ARP binding is enabled. is it possible that limiting could work without ARP binding? thanks
     
  29. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    No, not posible because needs the ARP list to exclude the other machines not listed.

    I upgraded my Asus wl-520GU to the latest Victek USB build with the default new theme on, no problem at all in my default browser, Firefox 3, see the left hand menu just fine. Saw you mention you were using IE8 though, so I switched to IE7 to check on that, and in IE I get the no left menu issue like your screen cap. Seems there's something IE doesn't like, but FF shows it fine for me.
     
  31. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    scaredwitless, Thanks, go to check, good point!!

    I have experienced this issue also in the latest version and the last. I have my stats stored in ram temporary where it is backed up to an ftp server every so often.

    Even with removing the FTP server part it still happens, normally after a week or more of uptime. I've also noticed the WAN (ppp0) bandwidth section under last 24 hours completely vanishes when this error happens. Wireless and other sections remain. The WAN section under real-time isn't effected.

    Each time I have upgraded I have also done a full erase.
     
  33. Toink

    Toink Network Guru Member

    Thank you for the new patched build, Victek!

    I can confirm that the issue has something to do with IE7 and IE8. I tried using Firefox, the menu shows. However, in IE7 and IE8 the menu still wont show, even with the Tomato RAF 1.23.8623.1 build. I'm using Vista Ultimate x64 with IE8, and Vista Ultimate x64 with IE7 in a couple of my rigs.

    I also tried in another a neighbor's Asus WL-520GU. It manifests the same issue on his laptop using Vista Premium IE7.

    For now, I'll just try to access the router via Firefox until it's resolved.

    Thank you, Victek! :thumbup:

    EDIT: Link works :)

    Victek, you got it! :rockon: Now it works! Including this issue I've raised before (only in my Asus WL-520GU, though. But in Buffalo WHR-G125 that issue still manifests. I think it is also related to IE. Everything works in Firefox).

    Muchas gracias! :thumbup:

    Not that I ever use Internet Explorer, but I upgraded to this new build, and can confirm that the default theme now displays the left menu properly in IE7 as well still showing fine in FF3 too.

    As Peyton says:

    Same issue here (using Firefox3) on a WHR-HP-G54.

    'Country/Region' set to 'Europe'
    'Enhanced RX Sensitivity' to 'Enable'
    'Transmit Antenna' and 'Receive Antenna' are set to 'B',

    Changing 'Enhanced RX Sensitivity' to 'Disable' causes the error for me.

    What release are you using? if Tomato RAF 1-23-8515ND disable in Administration / Debuging, Count cache memory as free memory.
     
  47. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    Jim, do you mean that when you set country code = US in the Buffalo you don't get the error "wl_country error" when you try to change any setting in wireless advanced menu ?

    Thanks
     
  48. thor2002ro

    thor2002ro Addicted to LI Member

    does this "Count cache memory as free memory" option disabled have any bad side effects?

    and yes its Tomato RAF 1-23-8515ND on a WRT54GL v1.1

    ps: i'm planing to do a sd mod is there any chance to get a sd support on your mod ...? i totaly like your mod and another one is not an option...

    Victek Network Guru Member

    jsmiddleton4, thanks for the clarification. I will look for a Buffalo router from some friend to test and today I'll rollback to source 1.23.8513ND and start from scratch again ... some other problem like jjfs2 mounting are reported after the wl_country has changed.
     
  51. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    Found the problem in jjfs2, is coming from BB 1.13.3 .. working on it. :)
     
  52. Toastman

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    Since memory is usually used as cache, the "free memory" indicator doesn't really indicate a true state of affairs. Changing the option to show cache as free memory gives a truer picture, it has no effect on anything else - it's safe.

    All was ok until i reboot. Buffalo doesn't seem to like to be modify after being rebooted as US in my case. I didn't try with Europe but i guess it will be the same as it was already noticed. :(

    Signal strength measurements on wireless drivers.

    In the meantime, I have been working on testing wireless drivers to see if I could come up with a good solution as to what values to use. These tests were carried out with a WRT54GL v 1.1 with pa0maxpwr set to 251 in each case.

    I found that setting 251 for transmit power allowed comparative measurements without having to keep changing levels several times for each channel test, which would have taken a few days. No proper test equipment is available so signal strength results were interpreted from what I have available, which is an assortment of laptops, wireless USB adapters, and the other AP's in the block (the most reliable, by the way). All averaged over several minutes so as to be sure of the readings.


    ND drivers old 4.130.19.0 and newest 4.158.4.0
    Country=US/DE/AU/ALL (DE=Germany, AU=Australia) Power set to 251.

    Channels 1-8 -55 dBm
    Channels 9-11 -64dBm - equivalent to approx 20mW (guess).

    Notice that full power was available only on channels 1 to 8. This is different to what I remembered - but I did recheck the figures many times and stand by them.

    ***

    ND drivers old 4.130.19.0 and newest 4.158.4.0
    Country=JP or TH (Japan, Thailand) Power set to 251.

    Channels 1-14 all -64dBm - equivalent to about 20mW (guess).

    ***

    Both of the ND drivers behaved the same. I wondered how the old standard driver would compare, so I loaded an old v1.19 original and used the stock defaults.

    ***

    Old Non-ND driver 3.90.38.0 Jon Zarate 1.19
    Country=ALL is the default. Power set to 251.

    Signal is about 3dB stronger than ND drivers at -52 dB on channels 1-9, but is -56dBm on channel 10, and -64dBm on channel 11. I rechecked the channel 10 and 11 figures three times, because they looked odd, but they are confirmed.

    Channels 12-14 are UNUSABLE - they do come up at a random value of -55/-64 initially BUT switch off after a short period. This period varied from less than a minute to about 3 or 4 minutes during my tests.

    ***

    Note that in the case of Japan being set, it took several minutes before the disappearance of the signal. This means that anyone also conducting experiments should take their time over it! This finding explains why I was never able to use channel 14 last year and gave up in disgust. They also probably partly explain another mystery that happened to me a few months ago:

    http://www.linksysinfo.org/forums/showpost.php?p=338505&postcount=40

    I have not explored all of the possibilities, but it does seem possible that setting higher power on the high channels may not be possible. It also looks like only low power is available on all channels if Japan/Thailand is selected so as to enable channel 14. My guess of 20mW as the approximate equivalent transmit power is based on my reducing power level until the received signal began to drop. Notice that the same level of -64dBm keeps cropping up, and it is possible that the transmit power level is set as some default in the wireless driver which cannot be overridden. The power level could be reduced from this level, but not increased.

    The interactions of the country and power settings are involved, and testing is both time consuming and difficult. Anyone else come up with anything?
     
  59. Toastman

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    Another part of the mystery might be that apparently some AP's and client adapters are able to interact. This is part of the "regulatory domain".

    "APs can provide an ISO/IEC 3166-1 country code and a channel list (with associated max tx power setting.) In practice though one can not always trust APs country information element regulatory information due to considerations for outdated data, rogue/busted APs. Therefore, the wireless code determines the regulatory permissions based on the intersection of data from the APs country information element and what CRDA provides for the given country code. The Linux kernel wireless subsystem always enables the dot11MultiDomainCapabilityEnabled flag. Therefore, it tries to follow country information received in AP beacons."

    from http://linuxwireless.org/en/developers/Documentation/cfg80211

    AND

    "Prior to the introduction of the IEEE 802.11d standard, mobile stations (STAs) were provisioned for a particular WLAN regulatory domain. Some STAs provisioned for Europe would allow a user to manually change the country code, but other WLAN regulatory domains prohibited this behavior. In order not to violate any of the regulations for maximum transmit power level, some STAs would enforce a maximum transmit power level that is the minimum of the permitted maximum transmit power levels in different WLAN regulatory domains. However, this reduces the range of the STA.

    The IEEE 802.11d standard describes a mechanism that allows compatible equipment to be able to operate in more than one WLAN regulatory domain over time. An AP that has enabled IEEE 802.11d functionality will include in the beacon frames that it broadcasts a country information element (IE). The country IE contains the information required to allow a STA to identify the WLAN regulatory domain in which the STA is located and to configure the physical layer of its WLAN interface for operation in that WLAN regulatory domain. The country IE includes a country string and one or more channel triplets.

    The country string contains an International Organization of Standardization (ISO) country code for the country in which the AP is located. Each country name in English as given in ISO 3166-1 has a corresponding ISO 3166-1-alpha-2 code element. For example, the code elements for Canada, the United States of America and Japan, are CA, US and JP, respectively. A channel triplet indicates a starting channel, a number of channels, and a maximum transmit power level permitted on those channels.

    According to the IEEE 802.11d standard, a STA that is enabled for operation across WLAN regulatory domains defaults to passive scanning when it has lost connectivity with its extended service set (ESS). Passive scanning is performed using only the receive capabilities of the station and is, thus, compatible with regulatory requirements. When a STA enters a WLAN regulatory domain, it passively scans to learn at least one valid channel, i.e. a channel upon which it detects IEEE 802.11 beacon frames. The beacon frame contains information on the country code, the maximum allowable transmit power, and the channels to be used for the WLAN regulatory domain. Once the STA has acquired the information so that it is able to meet the transmit requirements of the WLAN regulatory domain, it transmits a request to an AP to gain the additional WLAN regulatory domain information contained in the response frame, unless the information was previously received in a beacon frame. The STA then has sufficient information available to configure its physical layer for operation in the WLAN regulatory domain."

    from http://www.freshpatents.com/Determining-a-wlan-regulatory-domain-dt20081023ptan20080259882.php

    AP's are supposed to implement this, but it seems that while some manufacturers do not do so, others have tried, but had limited success with it. I have no idea which category the WRT54GL falls into. One wonders if this is related or the same thing as the "regulatory mode" that was responsible for the Intel 2200 wireless card problem. It may all be related. I searched for information on this but all I found caused me to believe that it is one big mess.

    What it might mean is that if someone else conducts *exactly*the same experiments that I did above, he may get completely different results depending on his wireless adapter! He may then conclude that I am an idiot. (Some people can be very perceptive :biggrin:).

    And - when several clients connect to an AP - which one sets the domain?

    Thanks teddy_bear, no, I didn't make this change ... source is as you wrote, might be I downloaded a bad tree?.. Thanks, go to try.
     
  65. teddy_bear

    teddy_bear Network Guru Member

    No, it wasn't a bad tree... But looking at the error message, it looks like this unnecessary validation may cause it. It might be an issue with my last build too...

    Ok, another try for the Buffalo guys, please test, after the finding of teddy_bear I uploaded RAF 1.23.8515.4 ND in my site, sorry to bother you...

    Hey, Vic, I thought you'd incorporated the Mini UPnPd service into the non-ND builds? I just had my friend upgrade to 1.23.8025, and it's not there.
     
  69. Victek

    bripab007, just started with this shake in the 1.23.xxx ND release.. will be standard in the next offical release ;)

    Gotcha! Well, my buddy's router has a wl0_correv = 7, so we went ahead and gave the ND build a try :)

    I might have missed it so I apologize if its been explained, but how do we use the new NAT options, NAT-PMP and how do we use the mini-upnpd service?
     
  73. Toastman

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    You just need to enable it, and it really looks after itself without touching any of the defaults. Not so many applications use NAT-PMP, the most common one I see is uTorrent. If there are any clients which disconnect without removing their forwarded ports, a list will begin to build up. When it reaches 20, they will be removed after the selectable time period. You can change this threshold in Victek's version.
     
  74. bripab007

    bripab007 Network Guru Member

    On my network, all my software uses NAT-PMP: uTorrent, Transmission, BT client on my NAS, Skype, iChat, Adium, etc. The only one that doesn't is Xbox Live, which uses UPnP, and, incidentally, does not close its ports after disconnecting :)

    Having NAT-PMP allowed me to get rid of something like 5 static port forwards in the router, so, needless to say, I was quite pleased.
     
  75. jsmiddleton4

    jsmiddleton4 Network Guru Member

    I'll enabled nat-pmp. What about the new NAT options? SNAT?
     
  76. bripab007

    bripab007 Network Guru Member

    The theory is that SNAT may be ever-so-slightly faster for the router to process than Masquerade, however, it may also not be enough to really make a difference.

    A few of us on this board have been running SNAT with no adverse effects for a short while, now.
     
  77. Toastman

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    I stand corrected ... seems like more apps use NAT-PMP than I thought! Unfortunately, NAT-PMP just opens ports without identifying what opened them. Tomato is now very much more solid than it used to be!

    Just working in some more features now... please tell me if you consider this information useful (look at the screenshot) ISP Name & ISP Concentrator ID, this info is in the router from your ISP. It works in my case .. but depends if your ISP is providing this information..

    No, the RAF 1.23.8515.4 source was corrupted, I'm working in RAF 1.23.8515.5 and just uploaded the source code, (the new release have only one cosmetic change in the source, nothing interesting at the moment)
     
  86. QSxx

    So we stick to .4 for the moment? Or wait for compiled .5? I didn't get it from the Vic's answer since darth asked 2 questions... Which one is answered with no? :) ?

    Stay with RAF 1.23.8515.4 for the moment.

    Victek, is there any way you could do a changelog for these versions?

    I have Tomato Firmware v1.23.8513 RAF ND, and i was wondering what the changes are between 8513 and 8515.4 (and .5)

    A couple of things

    First off thank you SO much for such a great Tomato Mod.

    On your homepage it says: "Busybox 1.12.4.. and BB 1.13.3 in release 1.23.8515ND"

    Is the BB 1.13.3 mean Busybox aswell? I'm using 1.23.8515.4ND and in my log it says "Dec 31 19:00:07 unknown syslog.info syslogd started: BusyBox v1.12.3"

    So is there a typo?

    Also I LOVE the "Previous WAN IP" feature. Is there any way you could add a way to log or show every IP since the router rebooted? As some optional feature in case others don't want it consuming RAM?
     
  95. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    Cynsick , you are right, in the previous release till 8515.4 I updated the Busybox and DNsmasq to new version but the problem appeared in PPPoE and JJFS2, then I Downgraded to the version you saw.

    Do I need an nvram erase between .4 and .5?
     
  99. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    I think if you make a reboot the new value for pa0maxpwr=251 should appear when you list nvram show, If not, then perform a nvram erase.
