Hi Guys,

I am looking to replace the BT Home Hub with a WRT54GS running Shibby's version. Unfortunately, it seems that plugging it into my home hub causes it to fall over and stop all internet traffic working properly. By taking the same configured WRT off to work and tapping the company network with it, the VPN and the whole thing works perfect.

I cant find the username and password area on the WRT, so I can push the home hub credentials over?

Can anyone assist?

Hi Guys,

Fairly new to Tomato USB, the main reason for use is configuring a VPN on the router for all devices to be a little more protected from "big brother".

I have configured it and put in a set number of configuration options, wanting all traffic to route through non logging DNS servers, but on a recent test, I find that I have a DNS leak and could use your support to plug it…

The VPN is fully operational, but ipleak . dns is generating too many "google" entries in the DNS…

I enclose screenshots of my current setup and the DNS test results..

Screenshots Explained:
DNS tests are showing valid "OpenDNS" addresses, which I configured in the router, but there are others, such Google, which are not specified in the router.

The Tomato USB config has three statis DNS set (IP: PORT) though I only set those up as IP:

37.235.1.174
84.200.69.80
91.239.100.100
Use dnscrypt-proxy is ticked
manual entry : not ticked
resolver: opendns
priority: strict order
local port: 40

I also configured a killswitch on the firewall rules: iptables -I FORWARD -i br0 -o `nvram get wan_iface` -j DROP

So I am using a WRT54G router, Tomato .128 (by Shibby)

Can anyone advise why this may be happening? the WLAN on my PC does not have a specified DNS server, other than to use the DNS Of the router…

EDIT: I cant post the links due to being a new user….

DNS Leak - Help by jeebjeeb, 20 Mar 2017 10:43

Hello! I need help to create a script to synchronize folders (a folder in the USB Disk attached to the router and a folder over the internet -OneDrive from Microsoft, UNC-). This script will be scheduled to be executed every 30min.

I don't have any idea about to how create it (I am a beginner on this subject). BTW, I believe that some specific synchronization tool should be also installed first on the router, such as "Free File Sync" (no idea if it is possible, and no idea about how do it). Any help/direction will be appreciated!

The goal is avoid to use an another device (PC, ..) to do it when connected, if the router can do it "online".

have the missing 5Ghz at my E3200. It was there after the initial installation, but will disappear for an unknown reason.
It seems something wrong with shibby's firewall. I can't isolated guest AP.
Swithed to TomatoRAF, both 5Ghz and guest AP are stable at tomatoRAF. But still stay in 2014.

Please let me know if is possible to activate AdBlock only for WiFi, the best solution for one WiFi let's say for one guest network. Thank you

Hi,
I would like to copy the Tomato firmware that was installed on a Asus RT-AC66u router to an identical Asus modem and keeping the settings.
So actually just make an identical copy of the firmware of one router to the other router.
On that original tomato modem it contains specific information to reduce the radiation of the wifi signals, so it becomes more safer and doesn't emmit so many signals anymore without losing your speed.

How can this be done please?

thanks in advance!

I just upgraded to a RT-AC68U running AdvancedTomato 1.28.0000 -3.4-138 K26ARM USB AIO-64K, everything works great, except for one issue.
All of our Android phones (all run Android 5.0 or later) keep changing their location and time zone from Kansas City, MO to Ashburn, VA.
This happens every few minutes, and then jumps back within a couple of minutes/seconds.

It's extremely annoying, and has resulted in alarms not going off on time, and Google Maps saying that the phone is 1000+ miles away.
At first I thought it was a Sprint issue, but upon disabling both of my WiFi AP's on the router, I found it stopped occurring. Does anyone have any input? This is a seriously weird issue, and I have no idea how to solve it.

Router's firmware is 100% rock solid, but phone's keep changing location and time zone at random and then jumping back to normal again.
What settings should I change on router? I've already changed the SSIDs to something different, and that didn't help at all.

just got the Asus AC3200 router and was hopping to load Tomato firmware ver 3.0.0.4.380_4180-ge57f472 but it wont allow me to flash it:(
error message: "Invalid Firmware Upload

I was able to work around this on an RT-AC68U with the following procedure:

  1. Place router into recovery mode
  2. Flash with standard Asus firmware version 376.3626
  3. Reboot / reset to factory defaults / reboot again

Now apply whatever firmware you wanted to apply.

I am getting the error "/tmp/flashy6eKTx: Bad trx header" when trying to load the initial Advanced Tomato .chk file.

I am currently running Tomato 136 and trying to flash to Advanced Tomato 138. I initially was unable to flash to Advanced Tomato via the standard NetGear Genie firmware, so I flashed to Tomato hoping I could then flash to Advanced Tomato.

Can anyone assist? I'd really like to use Advanced Tomato. :(

Hi. My kids keep changing their DNS to Google. I've allowed them admin permissions using the, "Install", account - that was probably my first mistake. Is there a way to block them from Google DNS using the router (version 1.28 by shibby)? Thanks,
JB

Hello,

I have the following setup :
there are two routers kaskaded:
1.Fritzbox with internet connection it has the ip range of xxx.xxx.66.1-
2. An Asus N66u that has tomato firmware on it and I run it through the Wan port to the fritzbox net
it has the adress xxx.xxx.10.1-
it is setup as a VPN Client
I want any devices of lan2 or wlan2 to be connected to the internet with VPN only.(That is working already).

in the fritzbox ip range there are a 2 "nas" that have to be accessed with the IPs xxx.xxx.66.6 and xxx.xxx.66.2

I cannot access the nas from the tomato router lan2/wlan2 . Tried arround with port-fowarding, but my experiences are too small
to get it working.

Can please somebody assist how I setup the tomato router, that it allows all devices from the tomato router lan2 to connect to the fritzbox
iprange lan1 ?

Addition question 1: VPN kill switch : Does anybody have a secure solution for a kill switch in tomato? (if VPN goes down now device is allowed to connect to the internet any more)

Addition question 2: The Tomatos VPN seems to go down after a certain amout of time if not used . Tried the "keepalive" config but openvpn still goes down after some time

is there as well a working solution in tomato that keeps the connection to the VPN alive ?

Thank you very much in advance

Hi,

I've noticed now that independent on what class I set my web browsing traffic (dst ports: 80 and 443) all web traffic is taken as "default class" and not as the one it is defined in the basic settings. :-(
The QoS details show me that the browsing traffic is correctly detected as "WWW" but in the end everything is handled as "default class". In fact on the QoS graphs in the "inbound section" i see only 1 class: the default one.
Did I configure something wrong or is this a BUG?

Thank you very much!

Hello everybody,

today I wanted to start with a little bit of Qos on my Asus RT-ac66u router just by settings web browsing on a high class and slowing down anything else. My internet line is very very slow (just about 4 MBit down/400KBit up), but when I enable the QoS settings I've set up, downloading a simple application setup file from the web slows down to about 40 kbyte/s, while with QoS deactivated I can go with 400 kbyte/s.
The graphs and details show me that the traffic is detected correctly as WWW.
I's just set a few rules, what's the problem here? Hope someone can help me out.
By the way, even if I set the "Highest" class for web browsing it still stays as slow as before.

Thank you very much!

Undee

These are my basic settings (unfortunately I cannot upload any picture here):
Enalbe QoS x
Prioritize small packets with these control flags x ACK
Prioritize ICMP x
Reset class when changing settings x
Default class: Normal
Qdisc Scheduler: sfq

OutBound Rates / Limits
WAN 1 350 kbit/s
Highest No Limit / No Limit
WWW 50% / 100%
Normal 1% / 5%

InBound Rates / Limits
WAN 1 3500 kbit/s
Highest No Limit / No Limit
WWW 50% / 100%
Normal 1% / 10%

And these are the Classification Rules:
TCP/UDP Port: 80,443, Class WWW, IPP2P and Layer 7 are disabled.

I just installed Shibby K26ARM7 1.38 on my new R8000. I noticed that the "internet" light is dead. all other lights appear to work fine with red/white scheme.

Is this normal for Tomato? I never even hooked it up with stock firmware and I'm pretty sure the light flashes on at started/self check.

Thoughts?

I am only able to get max internet download speeds of 170mbps on my router on a wired connection after changing my firmware to tomato from Merlin-wrt. I am using fast.com and speedtest.net. I was able to get 260mbps on Merlin. I would prefer to use tomato because I like to the features more. Is there a way of increasing the speed?
