    Well, Tomato has let me down once again, it was about a year ago that I tried it, and now I remember why it won't work for me.

    The Tomato router has been on for 48 hours and our HTTP requests to websites is about as fast as a 4800k modem. Gmail refuses to load now, loading half way but hangs. Sites like ebay take 20-30 seconds to load.

    The SES light that I set to turn on/off Wireless now does nothing.

    A hard reboot fixed everything fortunately.

    Oh well, back to DDWRT and its problems, too bad, Tomato seemed like a good idea and has some good ideas, just not reliable enough for me over DDWRT 23 SP2.

    Did you clear Nvram after the firmware load?

    Hate to break it to you, Venom, but you've done something wrong. Do you honestly think Tomato would be as popular as it is if it had problems that serious? Ya know, it actually, gasp!, benchmarked way faster WAN-to-LAN speed tests than DD-WRT :-o

    Rather than start a new thread, like I was going to, I'll add my problem here.

    Turn wireless on - WLAN light comes on. Turn wireless off, WLAN remains on. Rebooting the router with wireless off and WLAN light makes the WLAN turn off.

    Router is a WRT54GS v1.1.

    Show us the script you're using to sense WLAN activity and what exactly do you like to test, hope will solve the wrong script you're using.

    Meanwhile you can test this script....

    # Script lights amber LED when there is traffic in your WLAN.
    # Copy in Firewall section of Administration/Scripts and reboot the router.
    sleep 5
    I=`ifconfig eth1|grep -q 'UP'`
    while sleep 2; do
    if I=0; then
    XFER=`ifconfig eth1|grep bytes`
    if [ "$XFER" != "$PXFER" ]; then
    led white on
    led white off
    led white off
