I need some help with getting Tomato working on my Asus RT-AC66U A2. I downloaded the most recent version of Shibby's firmware (112) and installed it on my router. The install went fine (via Asus Recovery) but I quickly ran into a problem, the wireless networking was not working. I could see my networks listed on my computers (Win 7 64) but when I clicked to connect, I always got an error saying I couldn't connect. When I restarted the router, the whole GUI page was messed up. The wireless page showed my settings (WPA2 Personal and password) but also showed setting for WEP (like the different keys and things) in the same section. It also looked as if the page had not fully loaded. If I tried to change anything on that page, the Save button would not work. The Status page showed all of the radios as being down but enabled. I have used Tomato for years, and never seen anything like this. I tried installing it again but same problem again. As far as I can remember all I did beyond basic setup (names and passwords) was setup up a virtual wireless network for my legacy devices (WEP). I don’t know if this is a bug, I missed a limit of the early firmware, I have a bad router, or something else, but I could really use some help. I need to get off the factory firmware, as it is not stable at all. Thanks.

Put it in recovery mode. Log into the recovery page and execute an NVram clear.
I cleared the nvram both times I installing tomato. Plus once through the GUI reset settings. It didn't seem to make a difference.
Also to any Admin or staff, is there a problem with the login on this site? I created an account and verified it, but I can't login. I tried in IE, Firefox, and Chrome. No errors, it just goes through the process but nothing happens.
You cannot log into your router or this web site. Sounds like your computer may be full of shit. Things like AVG antivirus and excessive toolbars. Wild Tangent games. Norton 360. Several HP OEM hand holding programs. Torrent clients that are always loaded into memory. A rootkit or two. Expired trial versions of McAffee antivirus. Etc, Etc.
Thanks for the advice but that is not an issue. I hate 99% of the programs you listed, and know better than to use them. Logging in doesn't work on a new Ubuntu install at my office either. Perhaps as a guest to, you can test signing up and logging in. Now can we please get back to the router issue? I would really like to get this solved soon, or I am just going to return the thing.
Please don't return it. There must be an explanation to the problem. Besides the more common problems I mentioned there are several other things to try, but now I am afraid to try helping since you had such a snarky response to my previous attempts. On second though, fuck it. Just take it back and run a CAT5 cable instead. You cant fuck up a cable and blame your personal problems on bad firmware. Jeezus.
I am not sure why you think I am being "snarky." Please don't read anything extra into my post, it is just plain text. I will make it clear when I am being rude or aggressive, but I have no expectation of doing that. I agreed with you that the list of programs you mentioned were bad and cause issues. I simply noticed you don't have an account and was wondering if you were not able to make one or log in like me. And I simply wanted to direct the conversation back to the router not logging in.
friedgreen is the local troll and asshole in this forum. You can ignore what "it" writes.
