    Flashed Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-107 K26 Mini and all is working well. Wireless is strong and stable. I have about 16 network devices on my small network, mix of wired and wireless.

    I am getting ready to upgrade from 106 to 107.
    I just don't want to clear the NVRAM. Not sure if it's need to from 106 to 107.

    I would, just because it better flashing practices, and not to mention Toastman has provided a great way to restore variables via the command line box and it just simply works best and is very fast for restore.

    if coming from 106, I would think its okay not to clear the nvram

    meazz1 LI Guru Member

    I did a NVRAM clear and running 107.
    Everything seems to be working great.

    I'm running v107 mini on a WRT160N v3 and all is well except I can't access the router through HTTPS once I change to that option. That also happened with v106. Has anyone else had that issue?
  9. Elfew

    Elfew Network Guru Member

    yeah, but it is simple to fix - just write to the status bar: instead of

    I have reported this issue to Shibby ;)
  10. se7six

    se7six Networkin' Nut Member

    That doesn't work. I can't access it through https:// and have to reset the router to go back to HTTP only.
  11. Elfew

    Elfew Network Guru Member

    no problem here with https enabled... only I must write https to the nav bar in browser

    IF you use v107 AND have run some earlier build before AND use IE9 or newer THEN you have to regenerate the ssl certificate.
    the old certificate is 512 bits and is not accepted by IE9 or newer. the new certificate is 2048 bits.

    I'm running Firefox 20 and I also tried in IE10. Neither are working.

    I went from 102 to 107 (aio build from rt to rt-n) without clearing nvram. Things I use seem to work fine. HTTPS access, VPN, transmission (updated while in mid flight, it just kept downloading after update, no problems), some ports forwarded.

    So far so good

    I am very new here.

    I have asked this question on another thread with no luck.

    Can SO tell me if it is possible to use RT-N release on RT-N16 router, because it is indicated it's better to use RT releases for this asset ?

    Any help for the beginner I am will be greatly appreciated.

    kthaddock Network Guru Member

    Yes you can use RT-N bulds on tex ASUS RT-N16. You can use AIO-build.

    That's done.tomato-K26USB-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-107-AIO is installed on my RT-N16.

    Every thing works as expected except IPTRAFFIC REALTIME.

    I can't obtain the IP's really used on my network and the one's shown don't display any traffic.

    That acts as there were no refreshof the datas.

    I have checked "enable" in the "IP Traffic Monitoring" tab.

    BANDNWIDTH Real time works like a charm.

    Thanks for your help gentlemen.
  21. kthaddock

    kthaddock Network Guru Member

    How many ip-numbers have you on ip-traffic => view Graphs ? If that list is full you don't have displayed ip traffic.
    Then you have to remove ip's on IP Traffic Montor under Excluded IPs

    Try that.
  22. yac22

    yac22 Serious Server Member

    I have only got 2 ip's : : I don't know what does this ip corresponds to ; I have got and it corresponds to my box (my RT-N16 is on line side and DHCP on wan side).
    Just like TOMATO couldn't see the true ip's
    Thanks for your kind answer.
  23. kthaddock

    kthaddock Network Guru Member

    Aha Tomato can see true ip:s if its connected direct to Fiber lan or DSL-modem in bridge mode.
    Make sure you have traffic, display traffic takes some time before it shows up.

    Hello all and thanks to all the devs keeping tomato a thriving release. I decided to take the leap and upgrade my WRT160nv3 from tomatousb tomato-K26-1.28.9054MIPSR2-beta-vpn3.6 to shibby's tomato-K26-1.28.RT-MIPSR2-107-MiniVPN. Thank you for stuffing all the goodies in this firmware at under 4MB. The issue however is I can't connect to the VPN server as previously configured with tomatousb. I have read that the VPN on 105 was broken, so I waited for this 107 release to take the plunge. Has anyone else verified if the MiniVPN on 107 works?

    Thanks for your help.

    piotrpiano Serious Server Member

    I experienced same problem when going from 104 to 105. I can't say what the actual issue was but can tell you what helped in my case: I cleared nvram (thru the gui - thorough) and input all settings from scratch. And voila - IP traffic works!

    I was one of those that had a few issues with Shibby 106 and had to revert to 104 (mainly due to the SIP ALG, uPnP etc failing).

    Today I upgraded to 107 from 104 and almost all the issues I reported on Shibby's 106 bug tracker were already fixed in 107. FYI, the issue with the realtime graphs etc is most likely to do with a problem with the stats file. In the administration section you can create a new file, which fixes the realtime graphs (but I had to report a bug with 106 which meant that the historic graphs etc pages didn't work - I obviously haven't had 107 long enough yet to report if that's been fixed - and also obviouslyl you don't retain your historic data if you blat the stats file).

    Hello all, I found my issue with the VPN. First I transposed port numbers and then my client kept kicking me off the connection because of DNS issues. After I tracked those down, the connection has been good and steady. Thanks again for all the work on tomato firmware and helping out on these forums.

    yac22 Serious Server Member

    @Pentangle and Piotrpiano :
    At the end, IPTRAFFIC has been correctly populated.
    I had to wait for 24 hours and it worked great.
    Kthaddock was right : it needs some time to discover the network.
    But the idea of creating a new stat file (Pentangle) or emptying the NVRAM (Piotrpiano) are good I think. That may accelerate the process.
    Emptying NVRAM may have the same results than creating an new stat file isn't it ?
    Thanks everybody for this nice knowledge exchange.

    Release 107 is definitely great, lots of bug fixes. The only thing bothering me is the lack of UPnP stats on the port forwarding page... Going to stick with 105 for now..
  34. eahm

    eahm LI Guru Member

    Testing it right now, I see UPnP and NAT-PMP perfectly working. What do you mean with "lack of UPnP stats"?
  35. Edrikk

    Edrikk Network Guru Member

    I'm fairly sure this is because people didn't do a proper reset. As far as I know the miniupnpd keeps additional details in the newer release, which the old version didn't... hence if one doesn't do a proper reset, the 'read' will fail...
  36. bmupton

    bmupton Networkin' Nut Member

    I flashed from 106 to 107, full nvram reset, and I don't have upnp stats. upnp works, but stats do not. I believe Shibby mentioned that it's actually been broken for a while in RT builds and recent changes caused that to appear. It appears to be fixed entirely in RT-N builds though.
  37. eahm

    eahm LI Guru Member

    Don't even know why they still make RT builds. RT-N drivers are more stable.
  38. bmupton

    bmupton Networkin' Nut Member

    There isn't a Big-VPN RT-N build for the Linksys E3000 available from Shibby, else I'd run it. I read someone on the forums the other day compiling a couple different builds with RT-N, but not the one I run I don't think. (I'm too lazy to go look though, but I'm pretty sure)
  39. meazz1

    meazz1 LI Guru Member

    Excuse me for not knowing any better.
    You're saying I can use the RT-N build for RT-N16 router?
    For example, it's ok to install "tomato-K26USB-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-107-AIO.trx" to my RT-N16 router.

    I would still like someone to show what "UPnP stats" are. A screenshot. A log. Something. This keeps coming up yet no one actually provides any data/information; just recurring use of some words.
  43. GhaladReam

    GhaladReam Network Guru Member

    That is correct sir. I use the RT-N build on my RT-N16 and I find I have better wireless performance. Now, obviously this isn't going to magically enable dual-band or anything, but you're getting the benefit of the newer broadcom drivers.

    No ports show up here as forwarded, but upnp works.
  45. ar514

    ar514 Serious Server Member

    I've tested the Upnp stats with the RT build and the ND build.. Both do have functional upnp, but it's the stats that aren't populating on the page.
  46. ar514

    ar514 Serious Server Member

    Stats meaning the actual log of forwarded ports in the Upnp section.

  48. koitsu

    koitsu Network Guru Member

    I see, so it's not really "stats" as in "statistics", instead what people are complaining about is that they aren't seeing any UPnP port forwarding entries in the GUI. Please don't call this "stats", just say "I'm not seeing any port forwarding entries in the UPnP GUI area".

    My recommendation is to re-launch whatever applications negotiate UPnP with the router (examples include uTorrent and Skype and Miranda IM and mIRC). You may need to do something like induce a file transfer (in Skype or Miranda IM) to get the port forwardings to occur -- really! This is especially the case with Miranda IM and mIRC. OS behaviour matters too -- Windows XP behaves very differently with UPnP than Windows 7, for example (I speak from experience on this one).

    All said -- this problem may be a result of the miniupnpd upgrade done in Shibby (106 or 107, I forget; would need to check changelog). Other code bits/pieces may need to be adjusted as a result of the upgrade.

    Can I have a definitive statement on this from Shibby/Toastman re the RT-N16, as it's 2 conflicting views so far. One place says "use RT on the RT-N16", others say "RT-N gives newer drivers".

    I know I have used both and both work, but i'd like to hear from those using the codebase daily as to what's recommended, rather than "I get better wifi performance" because that's sometimes subjective based on your environment (I used to work for a wifi company so I know one point-in-time "my wifi's better" is not necessarily conclusive)

    Personally, i'm currently using the 107 AIO RT build from Shibby and find it rock solid, and certainly more solid than RT-N 106 or 104, so my question really revolves around:

    "what actually is the difference in codebase/driver versions between RT and RT-N and why is the RT-N16 recommended in some places to use the RT build?"

    There is only one thing - wireless driver - cose is closed, so we dont know what is new... the newer driver is in official asus firmware... I have about 15% higher speeds with RT-N driver on my asus rt-16n... I really recommend it (I used to RT branch - stability is totally same, but speed is lower and range too!)
  51. Toastman

    Toastman Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    I wish people would stop asking the same questions ad infinitum. Some people report better performance with the newer drivers, many people don't. That's why there's a choice. Range? I see absolutely no difference here. Others do, as you can see. So the only way to know for sure, is to try them for yourself.

    I was running Teaman's latest build and I ran Shibby's build 99 or 100 (somewhere in there, I can't quite remember) and the ports displayed properly.

    On Shibby's 106 UPnP didn't work at all for me (This is where he made changes to miniupnpd I believe), and on 107 the port forwards work, but they don't show up in the interface. Normally my xbox 360's show up there once connected to xbox live, as does Teredo on my two Win7 boxes and Skype on both Android and Win7 both used to show up there. With this build, I can't get them to show up at all, no matter how or when I launch these things.

    You are correct: Stats was the wrong word to use.
  53. jerrm

    jerrm Network Guru Member

    There will never be a definitive view, best you can hope for is some form of consensus. As others have said, the driver is is a closed black box. There are so many variables, it's hard to make generalizations. It is very possible one is better with some clients and the the other with different clients. One may be better at handling certain interference/congestion scenarios, and the other at different scenarios, etc, etc.
  54. ar514

    ar514 Serious Server Member

    Yep 'stats' was the wrong word to use :,)

    I've always found generally higher and stable negotiated rates with the RT build on my e3000. But that doesn't mean generally higher throughput all the time. I haven't measured throughput with RT-N vs RT.
  55. Pentangle

    Pentangle Serious Server Member

    OK well if the only difference is wifi driver age, i'll swap when I find a problem :) I thought (given there's not a great deal of conciseness on the web) that there might be a little more to it than just that.

    I thought I would investigate Shibby's offerings and see if anything would be gained or lost vs. Toastman's. This is coming from a person that probably has probably 15 WRT54G (S)(L) in the field that I configure for various friends and relatives using residential broadband speeds (3-15MB down, 512k-3MB up) Absolutely have no complaints with Toastman's 7633.3 or the newly released 7634 but feel that his attention is probably towards the more modern routers. Since his 763x version has been quite stable, maybe there was little to fix, whereas the newer linksys and Asus routers still have some tweaking to do since they have more room to grow.

    Anyways, in my discovery it appears that there is no overclock setting in "tomato-ND-1.28.5x-107-SD-VPN.trx". Is this intentional or should I 30 30 30 the router again? I have good success overclocking to 250MHz. Also, is there a difference running K24 and K26 on a WRT54Gv4? I decided to install "tomato-K26-1.28.RT-MIPSR1-107-Mini.trx" onto this router and the feature set seems identical minus any VPN, which is not important in my case. The router has been running great for a few hours. It seemed the initial releases of K26 for MIPS1 was unstable. Should I expect any difference using K26 instead of the older K24?

    Thanks for great firmware choices.

    Running 107 AIO on my E4200 with ctf turned on for 5+ days. Working great! Getting 50+ Mbps on my laptop wirelessly pretty much throughout the house on a 84 Mbps internet connection. No lag or disconnects in games (PS3). No problems with video streaming. iPhones connect fine too.

    I just loaded Shibby Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 MIPSR1-107 K26 MiniIPv6 on my WRT54GSv4 and it has been running for the last 24 hours. So far all is going very well except for one issue. I see that on the Status/Overview page I can now see the Ethernet Port State and one of my Lan ports shows running at 10M Half. The device that is connected to that port is one that is running at 100M Full. I was wondering how accurate the information was and is there a way to adjust the port setting to 100M Full?
    Thanks for the help
  59. PGalati

    PGalati Network Guru Member

    I installed tomato-K26-1.28.RT-MIPSR1-107-Max onto a WRT54GS v2 and it was unstable. I crossgraded to tomato-ND-1.28.5x-107-SD-VPN (K24) and the router has been much more stable under heavy load. Not sure if Shibby or Toastman is better or worse for this router. Under limited testing, I am not sure K26 is the right path to take, even though I am testing tomato-K26-1.28.RT-MIPSR1-107-Mini on a WRT54Gv4 at home without problems. I always do a 30 30 30 reset after each flash to confirm a fresh config.

    Can someone point me to a Shibby changelog? Thanks

    eahm LI Guru Member

    I would never suggest K26 for a WRT54Gx, if you must use IPv6 get a newer router.

    Even though, I flashed some with RAF K26 in the past and they're still running. No idea how stable they are, I don't even think I have those customers anymore.

    Sorry, I don't mean to sidetrack this thread but I just saw this...
    Would that also be true for a WRTSL54GS? So a K24 build is better for the SL54GS too?
