I recently flashed Tomato onto my E3000 and now cannot access the internet through either the Ethernet cable or wireless means, although I can connect to the router itself with moderate success. I have confirmed that internet is coming through my modem (plugged ethernet cable directly into the modem) and have gone through a fair amount of googling and searching for an answer to no avail. I am fairly computer savvy but am not experienced in networking.
bin I'm using: tomato-E3000-NVRAM60K-1.28.7498.1MIPSR2-Toastman-RT-Std.bin

Full story: I have tried many combinations of restarting/powering off modem/router/computer/s. I even re-flashed Cisco's firmware back on there and still could not get internet. I tried a different toastman build to no result. Yesterday (back on Tomato), some odd combination of this seemed to have fixed the issues and I was able to connect with both my laptop and desktop for hours. However, my friend's Macbook could not seem to connect to the network at all. When I returned from work today, I could not even connect to the firmware GUI via the base IP address (192.168.1.1), though I have since been able to with restarting and such.
Most of the posts I have seen have been saying to enable DHCP. Under Basic-> Network, my WAN type is DHCP (default) and for my LAN I have a DHCP server enabled, so I think that's covered. If I'm missing something here, please let me know.
Another issue that worries me is that under the Basic -> Status tab, the Wireless network status is stuck at "Renewing."
Help would be appreciated.
tl;dr no internet through Toastman e3000 (wired or wireless), Wireless status stuck at "Renewing," haven't been able to find solution.
