    Tomato Firmware v1.25.1720 in Wireless Ethernet Bride Mode
    on a Linksys WRT54G V2

    Log's show dates of Dec 31, etc...

    Have BASIC/TIME setup for US NTP polling...,

    Is this a known bug?

    STATIC IP INFO of the Bridge is...


    I know the Gateway is as per the Tomato instructions!!!

    But I'm wondering if it should be of the Gateway of the [AP] Access Point?

    Try setting your Default Gateway and Static DNS to the AP (

    You need the default gateway AND something in the DNS setting too. Otherwise how will it resolve the ntp server names?

    Don't worry it won't affect the ethernet bridge.

    I've got those settings in my AP's but they have never set the time, of course it isn't in the least bit important for an AP so I never bothered with it ..... but... I'm doing something wrong ?

    I added the Gateway...
    I also added the DNS...

    Although the AP is setup for DNS Servers...

    All is well... ;^)

    I remember in the Tomato instructions that their was not suppose to be any
    Gateway or DNS setting's. Maybe that should be explained with greater detail in the Tomato setup instructions... ;^)

    The "TIME" up keeping is a great debugging tool when it comes to looking at the logs of the router. Also, helps with the correct management of QOS if one is using that part of the OS firmware.

    Thanks for everyone's help... You people are the best of the best!!!
