    Hi, I just ran into my first problem using Tomato. I installed the latest version (1.23) onto a new linksys wrt54gl about a month ago, and right away everything worked great. I pretty much left everything at default settings, and until last night I had no problems. Then out of the blue, for no reason that I can find, none of my devices could access the internet.

    All other network connectivity was still good, but no more internet. I powercycled the cable modem and the router, no joy. none of my pcs can reacquire an ip after /renewing. They are all set to automaticaly acquire, and DHCP is turned on in the router. When any PC is plugged directly into the cable modem, internet works fine.

    I still havnt changed anything in the router, since as far as I can tell, everything should still be working fine and I dont want to make the problem any worse. Anyone have any ideas?

    If it helps, my network consists of 3 pcs wired to the linksys, a netgear 4 port router wired to the linksys, with a popcorn hour a10 and a 360 wired to the netgear.

    Thanks in advance for any ideas!

    try to give your pcs a static ip so you will know what is dead - your dhcp or really your internet connection.

    Did you clear NVRAM before and after installing? Have you tried to ping the router for a response?
