Hey everyone, first post here :)
Been running the latest built of Tomato-USB EXT on my RT-N16 for almost 6 months now, and I like it a lot although it's been rather inconsistent as far as functionality. The majority of my problems have been WiFi related. I have Verizon FIOS and am using the provided Actiontec modem/router. DHCP is enabled on it and I have a few devices plugged into it (office computer, TV, Sprint Airave), but the WiFi on the FIOS router is disabled. I have my RT-N16 plugged into the Actiontec router and configured with a static IP, and have DHCP enabled on the Asus router as well because I want all of our wireless devices connecting through the RT-N16. I have a hard-wire devices plugged into the RT-N16. My PC, Xbox, PS3, and an external HDD (via one of the USB ports). No problems with hard-wire devices, but I do have problems with wireless devices. My main issue is consistency. I can go a few days to a week or so of no problems, but then randomly some of my wireless devices will have connectivity issues. It's random. It happens to our cellphones, iPods, notebooks, our other Xbox, etc. When this happens I usually have to hard-reboot the RT-N16 (removing the AC adapter) and that USUALLY fixes it. Sometimes it doesn't though, and I have to wait 15-20 minutes, and then reboot again for it to finally start working. Most of my settings are default settings, except I did increase the antenna strength a little.
I installed Tomato on this router from day 1 (didn't even bother trying the stock firmware). There's been times where I've wanted to try DD-RWT to see if it fixes any of my problems, but I'd rather stick to Tomato since from what I gather it's the best one for my router.
Any who, back to my main question. Is it possible that all of my problems (or at least most of them) are caused by settings or configuration? I've been trying to search for an in-depth Tomato guide for this Router and all I find are installation guides. Any one know of any good guides out there I could follow?
Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)
