    Hi guys,

    I'm currently on sky broadband with the new sagem 2504n adsl modem/router. Yesterday I received my Asus RT-N16 router and set about successfully replacing the router functions of the sagem with tomato firmware. I had it working at first, just without VPN support!

    Unfortunately I was working with a deadend copy of tomato that does not support OpenVPN so I reflashed the asus with Toastman's tomatoUSB and now I'm completely stuck. Below is an exhaustive list of the events:

    - reflashed with toastman and allowed to reboot, all lights flashing as normal
    - set my windows 7 desktop to static IP, subnet, gateway
    - plugged in to LAN1 on router and navigate to in google chrome tomato icon appears in tab but connection times out
    - try the same in ubuntu server with ip same result, connection timeout but tomato icon appears in tab
    - ARP-SCAN from ubuntu finds windows desktop ( via the router but no other active IPs i.e. no gateway
    - reset static IP to,, connection refused
    - reflashed asus firmware, allowed to reboot succesfully accessed router via using default user/pass
    - reflashed deadend tomato same symptoms now as toastman, connection times out, can't access gateway and not found with ARP-SCAN
    - reflashed toastman no change, still unable to access tomato user interface

    Any help or suggestions would be gratefully received!
