i'm actually using a second RT-N16 with Shibby firmware on contruction site of our new home to connect the house control system to my network. As the telecomms is still not able to provide the final IP connection, i'm actually working around this with a 3G WAN link and then connecting with OpenVPN.
This normally works great, BUT:
At least once per day in average the 3G WAN connection drops, which kills my connection. I then need to drive there and reboot the router. In this case i find the 3G stick registered to the network, but with no active connection. Tomato says "Connecting…" in the WAN status - without any efford.
Is there any way to prevent these connection losses or tell tomato to properly reconnect once the WAN connection is lost?
Firmware is Shibby V1.08 Mega VPN K26, but the latest Toastman build has the same issue …
Any ideas are highly appreciated!
