    I've got Tomato 1.03 running behind a Hawking HBB1 Broadband booster (which is connected b/w the ADSLNation X-Modem and WHR-HP-G54 router. I've setup the Conntrack settings as shown in the attchment, however, with Azureus running, I get something like 650 connection, browsing becomes really sluggish, even the router setup pages take ages to load.

    Could someone please tell me if I've got the timeout settings correct?

    My first suggestion would be to load the latest version.

    Don't understand your setup, but could your other routers/booster/modem have something to do with it?

    Second suggestion after ifican's - Kill whatever services you don't need (https, cifs, ssh, bandwidth stats etc.) that you don't need on Tomato, to make more RAM available.

    first i highly doubt the connection number if whats causing your browsing to become sluggish. to double check this, lookup the overview page, and as long as the cpu load is below 1.00/1.00/1.00, thats not the issue.

    The suspect here is your available bandwidth(typically the upstream bandwidth) being sucked up by azureus. 2 fixes here.
    1. Setup qos properly. fill in 90% ur max upstream bandwidth, setup ur default class(i use lowest), prioritize traffic (i.e. destination port 80 for http, destination port 53 for dns).
    note: dns typically should take the highest priority.


    2. Setup azureus to utilize somewhere like 80-90% your max outgoing bandwidth, or less depending on what you use your connection for.

    just a note: my wrt54gl with over 3000 active connections experiences no such problems to date =)

    most problems are caused by upload bandwidth. you should be able to set your Bittorrent client to have a maximum upload speed. and also allow a set amount of users to download from you. this is the easiest way to limit connections.

    Also remember that your OS may be the problem if it is your own PC that is using the Bittorrent client, and it then has trouble with very slow opening even of the GUI in your router. You may need to increase the number of simultaneous connections that Windows can have open. There is plenty of information on the internet about this.
