    Hy, I'm new to tomato and was trying setting up it for the first time, unfortunately without success.
    I own two routers, on one of them dd-wrt is still installed. Because dd-wrt is so buggy, I wanted to give tomato a try on my spare router (ASUS WL-500g Premium) to start with.

    On this spare router I installed Shibby's tomato-NDUSB-1.28.5x-101-Big-VPN and I failed to set it up for a class B network ( / I get following responds as soon I click 'OK': "Netmask must have at least 22 bits set (":

    I do not have any problems to set up a class B net if I use the current version of polarcloud's tomato!
    Is it not possible to set up a class B net with Shibby's tomato or is it a bug?

    I did also take a look at the Bandwidth Limiter of Shibby's tomato and I wonder what following parameters means: DLRate, DLCeil, ULRate, ULCeil?

    I want to control/limit two clients, one with highest and one wiht lowest priority.

    Thanks for any help.

    Many thanks for the link. Actually it is a little hard to find all the manual stuff for tomato. I did a google search and found some info regarding the Bandwidth Limiter but never the whole manual.

    It looks like, that I have been heard regarding the limitation about 22 bits netmask in shibbys build, because I saw in the changelog for version 102 the following entry: "Remove limitation about 22 bits netmask" (
    I hope thats about my issue. I will dl and install it onto my rt16 the next days. With the origin and the latetest toastman I had no limitations like that on my WL-500g.

    Some day I will upgrade my DSL line to VDSL from the Deutsche Telekom. As I understood, VDSL needs some VLAN-Tagging (what ever that means). Now I ask me, if this is possible within the Web-GUI of current builds. The only Info I found about that is the following: but this howto is kind outdated. So I wonder if there is an updated howto for that. As I do not want the Entertain/IPTV package (, and therefor no need for Vlan ID8 Tagging and Multi/Unicast stuff, but only tagging the VLan ID7, this should be simply and should/could be done within the GUI. Can somebody help with that?
