    i have bought myself a Netgear WNR3500L v2, i have installed Shibby tomato-Netgear-3500Lv2-K26USB-1.28.RT-N5x--083V-BT-VPN

    i have some questions about the software.

    1. in the overview i get this messsage: interference level severe, i guess that its not a good thing, i have tried different channels but its still the same.

    2. i get a very slow file transfer from my nas to my pc, 300kb/sec, with my old dir655 i got 20mb/sec.
    the computer is connected wireless and the nas is wired.
    what can be wrong?

    3. i have istalled 4 computers at the back of the router, on the front there are only 1 of the leds that is blue, the other ones are all orange, and also the internet led is orange, thou the internet is working,
    any suggestions?

    otherwise it seems like a really good firmware.

    i hope that you could help me with these questions

    3) blue is wireless. orange = 10/100Mbps connection, green = 1Gbps connection

    1,2) in my opinion wireless driver in this build is incompleted. People using RT-N builds has poor quality on Rt-N10u, RT-N12b1 and 3500Lv2. I dont know how wireless works on rt-n66u. For bugfix or new driver we have to propably wait for teddy`s back.

    thank you for the quick reply, the only thing that is a bit enoying is the low transfer rate,as i only get about 300kb/sec, wireless. i also noticed that the routers wlan dont reach that far, i have some ip cameras that it wont reach, is there a way to increase the wlan strength?

    where can i find the latest tomato firmware? is there a place thats always uppdated with the latest?
    and where can i find the dd wrt firmware? i thought that i try that one too, do i install this dd wrt the same way as the other firmares?

    dd-wrt doesn`t support wnr3500L v2 at the moment.

    my tomato firmware are available on site:
    For wnr3500Lv2 you have to use dedicated build available in K26RT-N directory.

    btw for better rates you can try force b/g mode. Then you should be able to get about 2MB/s speed.

    "this is initial build released by netgear, not by dd-wrt team."

    ok so this is the first original firmware that was delivered with the router?

    do you know if the latest version of : has a better wlan performance?

    i have the 083v version.

    thanks for the quick reply
