Until two weeks ago, my RT-N16 had the basic build 54 of TomatoUSB K26 MIPSR2 from tomatousb.org, and had run flawlessly for months. I never had any downtime with this thing. The week of Thanksgiving, it locked up, and just the power light was on - both wifi and ethernet connections died. Since then, it has died almost every day. Nothing changed prior to the crashing, it had run so flawlessly for months without downtime that I never had any reason to change even a QoS setting.
I've tried multiple nvram resets, upgrading to Tomato RAF (which I had read was the most stable updated release available), and finally doing multiple nvram resets while using ASUS recovery tool to upload Toastman's newest build, followed by more nvram resets and even a 30-30-30 attempt, but no luck, it is still crashing.
Anyone had a similar experience and found a fix? Are there any troubleshooting tips I can try, perhaps checking logs for info, or does it sound like I have a dead router? It's frustrating, because with the new toastman, I've doubled my speeds and the wireless, and I'd prefer to find a fix instead of having to spend $150 (I'd upgrade to the RT-N66u).
I've also posted this on linksysinfo.org, sorry to spam, just really hoping I can get it figured out! Thanks for your help!
