    0.05 Changelog

    * Fixed http request entry in access restriction may not work if separated by a new line.
    * Fixed several problems with triggered port forwarding. Note: This will cause the description to change due to a shift in the nvram setting.
    * Fixed not joining when in WET mode.
    * Fixed ct/nf mark not being masked properly causing problems with QoS.
    * Fixed a problem in httpd that may cause a tcp reset/blank page if the browser sends a post data and an invalid username/password.
    * Fixed several UI errors.
    * TTL is now adjustable in Advanced/CTNF.
    * DNS Exit and custom URL-based DDNS service support added. Note: DDNS entries need to be re-entered because of a change in the nvram setting.
    * DynDNS refresh time moved up to 28 days.
    * QoS table now has a move icon. Click the icon, then click a new location to move the row.
    * The default script for the SES button now contains a command to start a password-less telnet deamon incase someone gets locked-out of the router. This can disabled by going to the Admin/Buttons page.
    * Other minor changes.

    Will this version work on WRT54G v1.1?

    It might, but do at your own risk. I know Tofu mentioned NOT to use it on wrt54g v1, however the wrt54g v1.1 is more similar to the v2. I have a v1.1 which I'm not using and remember it was took a lot of patience and finese to load Hyperwrt firmware on it -- they basically said the same thing about not loading it on a v1.

    Edit: Personally I would not do it if your router is currently working. It'd probably be best to purchase one of the "supported" routers.

    of course it has to come out the day after i finally decide to load .4 on both my routers. lol. :) thanks Tofu!

    The new custom URL-based DDNS service support seems to work perfect for me. Thank you Tofu! :thumbup:

    Anyone out there with a v1.1 willing to try it?

    Sorry, I don't have a 1.1. However, I did just update my GSv1 and everything went well (from 0.4). Thanks Tofu!

    I have a wrt54g v1.1. I am the one who reported the problem to Tofu and have tested a different load Tofu sent me to test. That did not fix the problem. My guess it will not successfully load but I will be testing to see.

    WRT54G v1.1 update. No Tomato .05 does not load on my g v1.1. Same indications as before. No WLAN lite. Do not get a DHCP address. When the pc nic is configured staticly to say mask cannot ping IP No you do not need the gateway configured in this case if you are wondering, same subnet. Will have to recover by doing a tftp again I guess. This was not a suprise by the way.

    Just a FYI for those wondering:
    Yes it was set to defaults in nvram before load of Tomato.
    Was upgraded from Thibor15c. Have also tried upgrade using the official Linksys load.
    Yes it will run DD-WRT v23sp2
    Yes it will run Thibor15c (my favorite before Tomato)

    On the plus side the upgrade on my wrt54gs v4 went without any problems. I love the interface and the graphical bandwidth and QOS options. Great work Tofu.

    cfdfireman Network Guru Member

    I tried & got the same results.... so went back to Thibor15c.

    Woohoo. This firmware is great. Just upgraded from .4 and everything is going fine. Didn't have to reset defaults or anything.

    Will there be inbound QoS rules in the future (like in DD-WRT special edition)?

    Great work Tofu!

    Tomato Version 0.05.0788 running on WRT54G v3.1 without any problems! (Upgraded from Thibor 15c)

    I love the CIFS Client, nice!

    This firmware the best i ever have used, thx tofu!!! :D

    Working good here too. I have one in client mode hung off the WAN2 of an RV082 to a network two houses away as the failover internet. sweet.

    Any plans to support the WRTSL54GS?
    I feel left out.

    Just loaded Tomato 0.5, working perfectly as far as I can see. Decided to do a full NVRAM wipe this time, just for the heck of it.

    Nice work, Tofu. Still loving the QoS screens.

    Just flashed 0.5 from 0.4 so far so good,

    Anyone know if the router (v2.2) is able to handle Full Duplex on one of the Lan ports?
    I suffered a random reset today and thats the only thing i could think of which has changed.

    The answer is YES.
    [BTW this is going off-topic now]
    My 2nd WRT54GL here WAS capable of 100MBps, but after every 3rd party firmware the switch is slow as hell. I've posted about this in the hardware-part of this forum (Thread: "Very very slow switch").
    This weekend I installed "robocfg" (downloaded as an OpenWRT ipkg) and that shows my switchports as follows:
    # /cifs1/robocfg show
    Switch: enabled
    Port 0(W):  DOWN enabled stp: none vlan: 0 mac: 00:00:00:00:00:00
    Port 1(4):  DOWN enabled stp: none vlan: 0 mac: 00:00:00:00:00:00
    Port 2(3): 100HD enabled stp: none vlan: 0 mac: 00:00:00:00:00:00
    Port 3(2): 100FD enabled stp: none vlan: 0 mac: 00:00:00:00:00:00
    Port 4(1):  10HD enabled stp: none vlan: 1 mac: 00:00:00:00:00:00
    Port 5(C): 100FD enabled stp: none vlan: 0 mac: 00:00:00:00:00:00
    VLANs: BCM5325/535x enabled mac_check mac_hash
    vlan0: 0 1 2 3 5t
    vlan1: 4 5t
    As you can see at least 2 ports are 100FD.
    This is my 2nd WRT54GL: I've traded in the first one because I thought is was b0rken, but this new one suffers from the same slow switch. Linksys-support has told me that firmware is of no influence on the switch however... So far I have not heard anyone else talking about slow LAN-ports after upgrading to a 3rd party firmware on a WRT54GL.
    Maybe I'll just buy a cheap $5 FON-router instead... (URL:

    As much as I tell myself to not upgrade because I'm working fine with the previous version, I can't resist. I also can't resist the reset w/nvram before and after the upgrade and rekeying all the settings. Call me crazy!

    Tomato Version 0.05.0788

    Tomato Version 0.05 had problems with the (G load ) on WRT54G V4.0 AP-WDS would no work kind of hit and miss. Loaded the (GS load) on the WRT54G v4.0 and AP-WDS works like a champ.

    Power off Power on works OK
    Reboot works OK

    Had problems with Tomato Version 0.04 with AP-WDS after Power off or a reboot, Version 0.05 works OK.

    WRT54GS v2.1 Tomato Version 0.05.0788 (GS load) AP-WDS+WPA+AES
    WRT54GS v1.0 Tomato Version 0.05.0788 (GS load) AP-WDS+WPA+AES
    WRT54G v4.0 Tomato Version 0.05.0788 (GS load) AP-WDS+WPA+AES
    WRT54G v4.0 Thibor15c WDS+WPA+AES
    WRT54GS v2.1 DD-WRT v23 mini sp2 09-15-06 WDS+WPA+AES
    evrything works togather correctly, great firmware!!

    OK folks. You love Tomato. How about going to the about menu tab and sending Tofu some money to show that you appreciate all the hard work he has done.
    Remember every little bit helps him.

    i didn't have any problems loding the "G" code onto my v.40 WRT54G, but i was kicking around using the GS image since they are the same hardware. anyone have any thoughts?

    Loading GS image on WRT54G v4.0 (tomato v 0.5)

    I had problems (WDS) with the G image on my WRT54G v4.0, so I loaded the GS image on the WRT54G v4.0, works great no problems!

    One WRT54G v4.0 with GS image loaded
    CPU Load (1 / 5 / 15 mins) 7.1% / 4.6% / 1.3%

    From the Tomato 0.05 README dated 2006-09-24:

    That would mean it's all the same codebase, but with different headers on the firmware file just to get by the filtering done by the stock Linksys firmware. (i.e. the stock GS firmware will only allow firmware with a GS header to be loaded) So load whichever version you like, any differences in behavior would be attributable to the placebo effect.
  26. njeske

    njeske Network Guru Member

    that's what i thought. didn't read the readme file too carefully outside of the QOS section. i figured that since my initial upgrade was from thibor 15c, the code patterns wouldn't matter.

    Not sure if this has been mentioned or if I'm just upside down anyway. But on the bandwidth monitoring graphs it seems that Downloads and Uploads have been switched.. ie I am downloading at the the moment and its the upload chart that is spiking...
  28. fareal

    fareal LI Guru Member

    Try one of the other tabs within the bandwidth monitor. Doesn't one of them display correctly?
  29. dtswk

    dtswk Network Guru Member

    ok rebooted and well.. errr... its all good now. Walks away scratching head.. wish i had taken a screenie.. no ones gunna believe me now :)
  30. fareal

    fareal LI Guru Member

    It depends on which interface you click. There should be more than one to select within the bandwidth monitor page.

    Ahhhh, i c..

    Thanks for the patience :)

    I considering taking the plunge... and trying out Tomato. I am currently running Thibor 15c on a GSv4 and a Gv2, with everything working... except I was haveing trouble with me Mac G4 only would connect with TKIP, but the WDS was not stable.

    Is there any reason (besides the WDS issue) that I should consider switching.
    It looks great, I'm a little afraid of the beta part Tomato is still fairly new and although for the most part everything looks good....

    The other quick question I had was that I am using the GSv4 w/7 dbi antennas as the gateway (the Gv2 is only using stock antennas)... but based on ram is there any advantage to switching them and using the Gv2 as my gateway?
  33. digitalgeek

    digitalgeek Network Guru Member

    I have loaded tomato on the Gv2 and it looks great... I am tempted to load it on the other to see it perform as a gateway as well as an A.P.
