    Just installed Tomato 1.13 yesterday. Set the correct time zone, however, the logs show yesterday as being Dec 31 and today as being Jan 1. My sys clock is correct and the Real Time Bandwidth graph shows the correct time of day. How do I fix this?

    Try to check the box beside "Trigger Connect On Demand", see if the time gets updated. If not successful, check to see if your DNS server is obtained successfully from your ISP. If your ISP requires u to input the DNS servers manually then input them and try to see if the time gets updated.

    Great suggestions. It was the Static DNS server. It was set to, I changed to and it updated immediately. Duh.

    Thanks a lot for your quick replies.

    How about the firmware not depend on the 4.2.2.* servers to have the correct time? I prefer to use my ISP's DNS servers because they are much faster and closer than the 4.2.2.* ones. Tomato should be able to grab the time without a static DNS setting!

    Edit: Don't mention the "Use Received DNS With Static DNS" setting because that is missing the point. Moreover, the setting puts 4.2.2.* as the primary DNS server instead of as a backup.

    Edit2: The aforementioned setting also kills the time update. I appreciate the Tomato firmware but this is still frustrating.
