    Is there a way to get led's to work on router (blinking to signify network traffic) with tomato firmware as they did with dd-wrt? Is this common to all tomato installations regardless of router brand or type? The led's blink as normal on boot up but go solid when boot completes. I prefer to see the blinking lights to signify network communications taking place. Any help would be appreciated. I thank you in advance.

    I have tried fresh tomato and advanced tomato with same results (led non activity). The router is an e4200 cisco dual band router. Even tried on different cisco e4200 routers. All have same results. Thank you for your help. I would think it to be an easy fix for someone but not for me of course without others input.

    Hi, you want the LEDs at the ethernet connectors to blink right?

    Yes, I would like them to blink with network traffic including wan port blinking, if possible, as they normally do on most routers that are experiencing network traffic. Thank you

    checked a few things/commands, not successfull. Stealth mode would be possible ;-)

    Sorry to just be receiving this. I haven't checked back since the there weren't any responses for the previous week or so. Thank you for trying I appreciate it. I don't know what stealth mode is as far as tomato is concerned or how it would affect the LEDs. I will still use the router of course without a concern for the lights but it would have been good because I enjoy seeing the network traffic on the bridge that I have set up. I'm still not sure whether tomato is the only firmware that does not use the LEDs. Thank you again
