I installed tomato-K26USB-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-138-RT-N53 on asus rt53n and did just the initial config lan wan wifi added 1 ddns and 1 openvpn server…and run out of nvram space…only 0.82% left 268 bytes…no space to install openvpn client or second server…
What can i do ?

Thanks…

I had a response from IPVanish, didn't work for me but worth a try for you I guess…?

There are three different settings you can change to try to improve your speeds. These settings are located in your OpenVPN settings. In DD-WRT, all of these settings are found on the Services > VPN tab:

  • Port (443 or 1194)
  • Tunnel Protocol (TCP or UDP - For streaming video, UDP is usually better)
  • Compression (Find the line "comp-lzo" in the Additional Config section. You can add or remove it)
  • The Cipher strength - changing the tls-cipher to either 128 or just disabled. If you do change this setting, this will impact the strength of the security of your connection, but on the other hand it could have the desired effects you are looking for. Some routers may not accept this change.

Other factors that can affect the speed of a router include:

  • The processing power of your router
  • QoS rules
  • Bandwidth Limiting (Found on some routers - usually enabled by default and gives preference to HTTP over other protocols)
  • Too Many port forwarding rules
  • Too many devices connected to the router at once
  • Connecting to a server that is too far away
  • Connecting to a server that has a high ping or high usage as seen on our VPN server List page
  • ISP throttling

If you haven't tried already, you might also want to connect a computer directly via VPN to have something to compare against.

I'm having a very similar issue.

I have FTTC and get about 65 down 18.5 up normally, but download is also limited to around 30 Mbit with the VPN enabled.

Figured it might be CPU related, but the router never seems to reach more than about 30% usage (via top). I'm hosting my own server and that has only about 5% CPU usage so it doesn't appear to be an issue either.

Hi all,

I very recently (circa 2 weeks) discovered Tomato and very glad I am indeed! I went out and purchased a Asus RT3200 and within the hour had it setup and running with the latest Tomato by Shibby (VPN) build via IPVanish.

I have an issue that I'm hoping someone can help me with. I have a 150mbps download and 10mbps upload speed cable line via VirginMedia, I can always reach those speeds and above when not using the VPN option on the router but as soon as I enable the VPN option and connect via IPVanish I get no more than 30mbps download (If I'm lucky) and can occasionally get 10mbps upload speeds.

I have tested this via wireless and wired connections with the same results.
I have changed servers to the closest servers to me with no change.
I have changed the TCP\UDP protocols and port numbers with no change.

Is this normal behavior given that I'm using one the the fastest VPN providers? If I'm not going to reach the speed that I pay for should I just downgrade my VirginMedia line?
Should I switch to another VPN provider?
Or are there some more configuration changes that I need to make?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. :)

Regards

Really? Nothing?

Hi All,

Got a serial console connected, and from what i can tell, it looks like the file system on the unit is borked - preventing me from downloading new fw and preventing the existing fw from booting (kernel panic while attempting to mount). Does anyone know of a way to reset things to a sane state? I can't seem to stop the boot in any way/shape/form to get a prompt to do anything…

Is there any fw out there for this situation?

Thanks,

Roman

Rebooting in 10 seconds..

I've been having similar issues as well. I had to downgrade to v132 to get it working again. I'd rather be up to date though. :|

It seems to be since the Multi-Wan functionality. And also note that I am only having issues (on another network running v138) with admin GUI. I'm able to connect via SSH without any issues.

Hardware: Asus RT-AC56U

Hi, i have configured a l2tp/ipsec on tomato shibby intalling entware and more, from my wireless the conection goes good using an iphone, when i conect to wan external ip (pppoe conection on tomato wan) it does not work, how can i activate l2tp passtrougt from wan to internal ?

thanks in advance

L2tp passthrougt by gatitofroilangatitofroilan, 27 Nov 2016 00:21

Using tomato shibby 138 on Asus rt-n16 builtin adblock feature with all preexisting blocklists enables, a lot of (sub)domains get blocked that aren't in any of the blocklists.

- The affected domains are not in any of the blocklists.
- I can see that affected domains (something like "example.ebay.com") are listed in /etc/dnsmasq.adblock .
- I don't know why or how they got in there (no idea how to find out / debug: haven't even found the adblock script yet -.-)
- In most cases where I checked, I found another subdomain (something like "ads.ebay.com") from the same domain in one of the blocklists, but not the wrongfully blocked subdomain or the 2nd lvl domain (ebay.com) itself.

Maybe something gets parsed wrong with subdomains?
Does anyone have an idea how to fix / debug or where to report this problem?

It sounds like you need to read this forum thread and check out the wiki for configuring tomato(usb?). You don't say what flavour of tomato you have so similarly detailed answers cannot be given

I have a Cisco Linksys E2500 that I purchased a month ago with tomato on it
My internet speed I pay for is 55mbps download
When I connect directly to the modem i can achieve that speed
When I connect wirelessly my speed drops to under 2 mbps
what could be the cause of such a significant speed drop?

Hi, I have run your builds on my rt-n16 and now rt-ac66u. I upgraded my line to 300 Mbps. Using build 138 I only get 150 Mbps thoroughput hardwired. If i install stock asus firmware I get the full 300 Mbps.

If you actually read the introduction to this site, it is clearly pointed out that it is no longer maintained.

Doesn't seem to be a very busy forum nowadays Nate!

Anyone know if it's working in the latest versions or not? It's not working for me..

I love this feature! Access Restrictions, perfect bandwidth monitoring, and Bandwidth Limiter is my favorite thing about this product that I can't seem to get anywhere else!

Can someone suggest the correct sequence of operations so that I can upload a MIPSR2 please?

I upgraded my RTN16 to tomato-K26-1.28.RT-MIPSR1-138-max.trx forgetting my router is incompatible.

It's been a few years since I uploaded my tomato so I'm a little rusty lol, can someone help?

i have tried 30-30-30 but all I have is a steady power light. What next?

Wrong upload for Upgrading! by Limey1Limey1, 22 Nov 2016 07:13

Hello!

Guys I'm a noob in all this network stuff so I hope you will help me…

I have 2 independent networks:
- NET#1 is under Zyxel Keenetic II
- NET#2 is under Asus RT-N16 with TomatoUSB installed (1.28.0000 MIPSR2-132 K26 USB AIO)

I need to connect NET#1 and NET#2.

On Zyxel I have PPTP-server and on Asus I have PPTP-client.
Zyxel has the following network settings: 192.168.1.0/24 and for incoming VPN-user the IP will be 172.16.1.34.
So on Asus I'm trying to use the following settings (sorry for showing my screenshot like this one - I'm not allowed to use links as I'm a new here so u need to remove one space from the link):

content.screencast. com/users/The_Immortal/folders/Snagit/media/543c74d9-26e9-4571-a414-3c5cf01dbbef/11.22.2016-01.41.png

Could you tell me is it correct setting for my case? But actually it doesn't work. I see no connections on Zyxel.

Thank you very much!

P.S. But If I try to connect from some devices (i.e. PC with Windows) under NET#2 to NET#1 - it connects without any problems. So there is some problem with PPTP-client on TomatoUSB…
P.P.S.

PPTP client doesn't connect by immickimmick, 21 Nov 2016 22:49

I'm pretty well versed in DD-WRT but new to Tomato. Bought a Netgear R6400 and flashed Tomato last week. Everything has been smooth except this for me and I can't figure out what i'm doing wrong. I need to be able to access my router web UI over WAN. I have a DDNS through afraid.org and I've done this for about a year with DD-WRT.

In Tomato Web UI on Administration > Admin Access I've configured it as such:
Local Access: HTTP & HTTPS (80, 443)

Remote Access: HTTPS (8080) (for now, once I get this thing working I'll use a less obvious port)
Allow Wireless: Y

For SSH Daemon:
Enable at Statup: Y
Remote Access: Y
Remote Port: (22)
Remote Forwarding: Y
Port: (22)
Allow password: Y

From my office across town in a web browser trying to use https to connect to my DDNS at port 8080 returns nothing. SSH to my DDNS at port 22 is also dead. I've already done an NSLOOKUP to be sure my DDNS is functioning properly. My port forwards are working, I can RDP to my home media server no problem and my PLEX is up. I can admin the router via remote desktop from within the LAN but not directly over WAN which is my goal.

Hi there,

I'm currently running Adrian Jon Kriel Adblock script on my Tomato. I would like to have this script run ONLY when a certain device is accessing the internet. I'm imaging this would be a rather simple if statement, but I don't know how to get the ip of the device.

For example, I'm imagining something like:
"if ip_of_device = 192.168.1.5; then"

Thoughts?

Thanks,
Michael
