I'm using Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-123 K26 USB AIO on an Asus RT-N16 (Broadcom BCM4716 chip rev 1 pkg 10, 480MHz, Flash Size 32MB) with an ZTE MF668A 3g modem (USB dongle).
Works fine, except that:
1) I tried to set up a usb memmory stick to save all the logs and stats of internet usage because I have a limited data plan. It worked for a day or two and then the USB memmory stopped working and the router freezed. It only started working again when I removed the USB memmory stick and disabled all the logging. The USB memmory stick doesn't work when connected to a laptop now. I could care less for the memmory stick, but I would like to save internet usage stats and logs permanently.
2) At least once a day, the router freezes, provides no internet, you can't access the router web page, but telnet is available. Since when I notice this is because internet es necessary, I unplug and plug again the power cable, rarely have a chance to see what logs i can save, but yesterday I could save some.
Apparently the 3g connection is lost, and it tries to reconnect, but the ttyUSB1 is locked by ppp. So it starts another process, and another process, and another proccess… until the router stops working correctly.
I've also wondered if it might be a problem that a couple of devices connect both to the router and to the linksys router I have in AP mode just to extend the range of the Wifi. But I'm not sure.
Here are the logs I've been able to save:
OK I HAVE THE LOGS IT'S JUST IMPOSSIBLE TO POST THEM WHEN I CAN'T POST LINKS AND EVERYTHING WITH A DOT SEEMS TO BE PARSED AS A LINK.
This is just a reboot, the 3g seems to connect the second try:
This is the log of when it kept starting processes to connect:
Unfortunately since I'm not saving the logs permamanently we don't get to see how it all started. However here's the list of process before rebooting the router:

This is wanoptions
Currently I have NAS shut down.
It's kind of problematic that it fails at least once a day because at times I'm not here and I leave everyone without internet. Any advice is welcome, and any more info you need I'll be glad to provide it.
Saving the internet usage stats permanently interests me also but it's kind of secondary issue right now.
