    Hey Guys,

    flashed from 9006 to 9011 on my RT-N16 unit.
    I reconfigured all my stuff but now my router isnt stable anymore.
    It keeps rebooting after some minutes/hours.

    What can/should i do ?

    Did you use the proper build? Did you do a full NVRAM reset after installing the firmware?

    Hello to all here!Now,that Victek repo it's down,I can't find nowhere to download latest beta build for E3000 (tomato-E3000USB-NVRAM60K-1.28.9011MIPSR2-RAF-NCC-VLAN-VPN-NOCAT.bin) . Maybe a kind soul has it on PC,and could upload it on a dropbox link,or an upload site ,because I need it badly.Thanks a lot! Best Regards!

    Hope the unit is stable now and stops starting to reboot !!

    Btw, can i use QoS and BW-Limiter together without any Problems ?

    So I am looking to purchase a few : WNR2000 at all my satellite locations. Can someone just confirm which features would be available to me on this, and which wouldnt.

    The main feature I would like to have is openvpn [client+server] /pptp [ client + server ] /ipv6 and a few of the most used ones.

    What version is this model?

    If it's a V2, the only build that can fit the WNR2000 is Toastman's micro/tiny builds.

    The max firmware size it ca take is 3,473,408 bytes, due to the way Netgear formats the NVRAM.

    That model uses an R2 CPU.

    The question here would be if all the features mentioned would be supported? Thats the main worry. I cant see a feature comparison chart that shows which feature would work
  9. Washu-Chan

    Washu-Chan Networkin' Nut Member

    Based on what I know, on the micro/tiny builds, there's no OpenVPN or IPV6 support.

    Which one would you suggest then. The RTN-16 is a bit more expensive.. specially considering I need to buy a couple of these..

    Just wondering Eahm, you were a long time Shibby user before. Why the switch to Victek? Have you tried any of the later Shibby builds (is up to v95 now)?
  17. Holy_Hunter

    Holy_Hunter Networkin' Nut Member

    Hey Victek is it possible to implement Bandwidth Limiting br1/2/3 feature in your builds like in Shibby mod?
    Would be so great...

    Victek's was the one I always used, I've tried Shibby's the past year because it was the most updated and more stable than Toastman and others. I love the stability of Shibby's. I like Victek's for business, no other particular reasons.

    Did not test 095 yet.

  22. Code:
    Tomato Firmware RAF1.28.9007 MIPSR2_RAF K26 USB VPN-NOCAT
    Linksys e3000

    I cant hit any higher than 144Mbps, Looks like its being limited.

    Using 2.4GHz Wireless with a channel width of 40MHz. Why is it still being limited to 144Mbps?


  23. kthaddock

    kthaddock Network Guru Member

    With that setup is your client who limit you to 144Mbps.
    Seem that only use 1-channel 40Mhz you need 2-channel 40Mhz to hit 300Mbps.
    And you need to have WMM enabled
  24. What a foolish mistake on my part. Laptop now able to hit full speed after setting channel width to auto in device manager

    However i seem to be having a problem with my "Repeater Bridge". I know im asking this in the wrong place, but so far i haven't had any help figuring this out.
    I have a linksys e2000 flashed with ddwrt (tomato cannot do Repeater Bridge) however it cannot seem to break the 150Mbps limit. As you can see the tomato router (e3000) is transmitting at a rate >200Mbps.

    DDWRT - Repeater Bridge - Linksys e2000

    Tomato - Router - Linksys e3000

    Also, when ever i specify to use the same channel (channel 11) on the Repeater Bridge (e2000) as the router (e3000) it will automatically change to another channel itself. Anyone know whats up?
    *EDIT*:Seems like ddwrt is reporting incorrect Channel, compare with inSSIDer scan below.

    InSSIDer scan:

    Great to hear from you, Victek, and I'm glad you're taking your time. TomatoRAF 9011 has been rock solid for me and my E3000 ever since I installed it. I cant imagine it getting much better than it already is:)

    -- Problems with "Wireless Client Mode" --

    hi there,

    i have a cisco/linksys E3000

    i just flashed the new beta "tomato-E3000USB-NVRAM60K-1.28.9011MIPSR2-RAF-NCC-VLAN-VPN-NOCAT.bin / 2012-Jul-22 / 04:34:23" cause my "old" dd-firmware had some trouble with dhcp in "repeater" mode (sometimes clients did not get an IP address via DHCP - this does only happen with the E3000 not with a WRT160NL on the dd-firmware). but i want to use the E3000. so i switched to the latest tomato-RAF beta.

    but on my E3000 it seems that "wireless client mode" does not work.

    i only use the 2,4GHz radio - WAN option is "DHCP". i configured ssid and security according to the "host-router". but the e3000 never get's any DHCP configuration (IP, Gateway, ..) of the host router.
    in "Status/Overview" the wireless signal strength/quality is only 1-5 but in "Status/Devices(List)" it shows me 30-40 on "eth1" (which correspond to the signal strength of the dd-setup). furthermore the device/eth1 disappears and reappears in "Status/Devices(List)".

    what i wanted to implement:

    host router with internet access ( = gateway) <-- tomato-RAF as "wireless client" (ex. via DHCP from host router) --> tomato-RAF with VSSID (ex. --> via this VSSID segment my clients get IPs via DHCP out auf range ex. and also ethernet-cable-bound clients get IPs out of this range.

    is this setup possible with tomato-(RAF) ??

    thanks for any pursuing answers!!

    the problem is not victek / tomoto-RAF related.

    If anyone has an E4200 with Victek's firmware already could check something for me, I would appreciate it. I'm trying to find a version of firmware that is stable for 5ghz client ethernet bridge. I've tried Toastman and Shibby, so far Shibby's seems to be better, but it still disconnects and doesn't give me the full bandwidth that it should. I'd flash myself but if someone already has it, I'd like to not flash away from a relatively stable build while it's still up.

    Okay so I have a slightly odd question... I have the Tomato RAF running "Tomato RAF 1.28.121006" on a Linksys WRT54GL and I noticed there are some new firmware that I think is for my router specifically "Tomato RAF 1.28.8515 ND". The question is should I upgrade to this new firmware or keep using what I am using? Where can I find a list of all the settings? I am not sure which settings I should be using and have been messing around with my settings trying to increase bandwidth throughput. Any help would be appreciated. :)
  37. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    The version you'are using maintains a good bandwidth for WAN-LAN speed (up to 6,5MB/s), if your internet connection speed it's up to 45Mbps then you can switch to 8515 release.
  38. ynoT801

    ynoT801 LI Guru Member

    Wow thanks for the quick reply! :) So in order to install the 8515 release I need to install the stock firmware then install 8515 right? its been a few years since I have done this. lol

    So to install tomato.RAF-K24-1.28.8515_lite.trx on top of Tomato_RAF_121006 I would have to rename the file .bin from .trx? Or reinstall stock firmware than install tomato.RAF-K24-1.28.8515_lite.trx renamed to a .bin file?

    Just firmware upgrade from the actual version, that's all. Remember to erase all nvram before starting new settings. Go to administration/configuration .. and select erase all nvram through...

    MIPSR2 for a WRT54GL? Could I also be running this on my Buffalo WHR-HP-G54, or should it be the MIPSR1 version

    My Buffalo is now only acting as an Access Point, would a different version be recommended in that case?
  43. Victek

    Victek Network Guru Member

    Zavar, sorry, my mistake, you're right only MIPSR1 version. In your case the only limitation is the wireless revision code for your unit, WRT54GL supports >9. I modified previous post.

    From the dd-wrt wiki on repeater bridges:

    "Also take note of the fact that all repeaters, including this Repeater Bridge mode, will sacrifice half of the bandwidth available from the primary router for clients wirelessly connected to the repeater. This is a result of the repeater taking turns talking to not just one partner, but to two, and having to relay the traffic between them. As long as your internet bandwidth requirements are within this halved bandwidth amount there will be little or no reduction in "speed"."

    I'm trying to set up an RT-N66U with Shibby v136 to my main router running Shibby v135 by using wireless client mode (on the RT-N66U). This is in preparation for helping my daughter do the same thing for a small operation which has wireless supplied by the building owner. I can get the RT-N66U up and connected to my main router. Now the problem is that I do NOT have access to the internet. What could be the possible cause(s) for nothing passing through the connection?? I have done this some years ago witth no issues, but not this time.
    The reason for wireless client is that there is sensitive information on the RT-N66U side that must be protected from the host network so bridged mode is not acceptable.
