So I installed TomatoUSB on my new Asus RT-N16, managed to get it all up and running as I used an old netgear dg834gv5 in modem mode to send through our PPPoA connection to the router. Only problem was my flatmate's Linux laptop wasn't connecting to the network properly. Wired or wireless. So I decided to try out Toastman.
Installed Toastman, no worries so far. The problem I'm now having is that the router says it's connected, but there's still no internet connection. It's definitely not the netgear modem as I tried getting to the internet using my PC and creating a PPPoE connection, so it must be the router, or problems between the router and the modem.
Has anybody else ever encountered this problem? I've tried playing around with various settings but with no joy yet. If anyone can shed any light on this issue I'd be truly grateful. It's just weird that the earlier version of Tomato would work and now, when I try the new Toastman, I can't get it to work.
