    Tomato's firewall is protecting your router against DOS attacks, the ping test is meaningless.

    Ah I see, thank Toastman. But should this happen even if I have "Respond to ICMP ping" enabled? I was using Tomato DualWan firmware before with more or less the same settings and never had test result like this.
    Love your firmware build btw. ;)

    Yes, it should behave like that. The firewall allows the router to respond to pings, but limits the number and speed of the response.

    Use "iptables -L" in the Tools/System box and execute, you'll see this rule:



    ACCEPT icmp -- anywhere anywhere limit: avg 1/sec burst 5

    Yep it's there. Now I understand. Thanks Toastman. :D
    One more thing. When using L2TP connection.
    Under Basic/Network -> "Wan / Internet" there are "Options" that can be used. Is there a list of options somewhere? Is it there for some authentication that can be used?

    I don't know much about that, so I guess you'll have to google for info. Try the search on here first.
