I have an Cisco/Linksys E3000 running Tomato USB version "1.28.9054 MIPSR2-beta E3000 USB vpn3.6". The alternate firmware runs great on my E3000 and I have 0 problems with it whatsoever.
I have a friend who is having "not so positive" results with Tomato USB. Basically he was in market for a new SOHO router and I recommended the E3000. He has been running the E3000 with same version of Tomato USB as I use, however recently he has been experiencing some strange issues with his router and firmware. He states that this past week wifi clients have lost connection to the router, and when he goes to check the router the LED's flash and the router went through a reboot. The question is why is this occurring? Is there any indication in the linux portion or the web interface that might give reason why the device rebooted? What makes this interesting is he had a D-Link router prior to this E3000, and the reason he got the E3000 was the D-Link was rebooting. I find it strange that the E3000 is rebooting unless there is a specific traffic type that is pounding the piss out of the router (and maybe his past router).
Aside from putting a network sniffer on his LAN and monitoring his traffic 24x7, what is the best way to troubleshoot this using the tools the E3000 and Tomato USB already have? Is there a log file that might indicate reboot reason?
Thank you so much for any input on this topic.
