Hello all,

My linksys router is flashed with tomato usb firmware. It is configured for open VPN client.

I asked my VPN provider for a script to break the uplink when the connection to the VPN server is lost. Otherwise, if the router loses connection to the VPN, it becomes visible with the IP address of my ISP.

My VPN provider gave me this to put into the router firewall :

iptables -I FORWARD -i br0 -o vlan2 -j DROP

I do not know the linux commands at all and I do not really know if this script does what I want… Could you explain to me and tell me if it does what I want ?

What can I do to test if it ?

Thanks !

Hi all,

May you put in a histogram chart, so I can see my max bandwidth usage chart? I would like to see if my cable company is throttling or really giving me slower than promised speeds. Thank you!

Best Regards,

KayT

I'm using:

Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 -140 K26ARM USB AIO-64K
Linux kernel 2.6.36.4brcmarm and Broadcom Wireless Driver 7.14.43.40 (r527781)

on a Netgear R8000.

I'm trying to use a Orico 4-HDD-docking bay (I can't post a link yet). As long as there's only one drive, it works fine. If I add a second or more drive (via a full shutdown of the dock), it seems to see them but it doesn't mount them (I get a message in the mount status that SDB was not mounted).

I'm guessing it's something in the automount-script? I haven't tried mucking about in the SSH/Command Line yet; just wanted to bring it to Shibby's attention.

I have a setup consisting of a main router (connected to the router of the ISP), and connected to it are 3 other routers used as switch/ap. I enabled VLAN's and virtual wireless, primarily to allow a guest wifi network on all routers.

For some reason, all clients connected to any of the routers can access the internet without problems and can also access the routers (ping), but the routers that I use as switch/ap cannot access the internet.

I *think* it worked some time ago (because I didn't notice the switches/aps NOT getting a time from the internet time server), but now not anymore.

Anyone any ideas what could cause the switches/aps being unable to access the internet, while all clients connected to it can?

Thanks!

Edwin.

When the router doesn't have access to the internet and a custom theme has been configured, the TTB process fails but remains in memory. Because this is retried every now and than, the router locks up within 1 day in my case.

Workaround is, of course, to use one of the build-in themes.

I am trying to use a Tomato Shibby router for Google Fiber. All is working except I am being throttled due to the COS bit setting. I need to set the class of service (COS) bit to 3 for all of my traffic. Is this not possible, I thought this was fairly common and with the Tomato QoS support I expected it to support it. If it is not available in the GUI is there any way I can accomplish this by SSHing in?

Thanks!

I had the same problem with one of my E2500's. You're using the wrong firmware. You need firmware that starts with "tomato-E2500v3USB", not "tomato-E2500".

I have the exact same problem. Did you find the fix?

Hi tomatousb fans,

I have a question! Can tomatousb attach a 56k external usb to N66U and be used as 24/7 fax line? I would like to send/receive fax using this! The most popular 56k external usb devices are made by U.S. Robotics and Hiro (this is half the price compared to other, so definitely recommend it!). Also, I want 56k external usb device to connect to magicjack and my home phone, too! (That's why these devices have two RJ11 ports). Please consider adding this feature!

BONUS: does anyone know any good callblocker that tomatousb can implement to screen calls? Some say Phonetray or Callclerk, but who would pay horrendous prices for these services? This is a basic human right!

Can we talk about this?

Best Regards,

KayT

Thanks s3n0…

Had a problem where I couldn't access the web GUI anymore on my Nighthawk. Killing the httpd process and starting it again per your instructions did the trick.

Hello all,
I am a newbie and I just need to be pushed in the right direction .I need a script on a tomatoUSB that checks for the client connection then starts the VPN server service .I have placed this script in the scheduler of the server to run every minute.The below script doesnt work and i just need some assitance.

1)Server is off
2) The Client starts up
3)The server sees the client up and then starts the Server service
4)the client connects
5The server shutsdown when the client is off

Server
#######################################
ifconfig | grep tap0 > /dev/null
t=$?
if [ "$t" != 0 ]; then
echo "$t"
echo "no tap-device available"
logger -t TAPTEST "no tap-device available"
logger -t TAPTEST "$t"
modprobe tun
service vpnserver1 start
logger -t TAPTEST "tap started"
sleep 3
fi
############################################

This is my client configuration

SOLVED! (sort of)

I figured out from other posts that this has been a known issue since 2008. WOW, huge problem. It took me months to tweak the settings on this router, and I thought I had them backed up, but apparently not!

Other forums have suggested unzipping, and then editing the .cfg file. I did this, and all I changed was the "et0macaddr=XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX" to the MAC address of the new router, but then I got a DIFFERENT error: "Invalid hardware type: 2020200D / 0000000D", instead of the previous error message "cannot restore on a different router"

This is definitely the exact same router model (E2500), and same Tomato firmware (tomato-E2500-NVRAM60K-1.28.AT-RT-N5x-MIPSR2-3.4-140-Max).

EDITING et0macaddr IN THE CFG FILE IS NOT A SOLUTION ANYMORE! It seems there's some kind of a checksum somewhere in the CFG files now.

SOLUTION THAT WORKED (NOT IDEAL):
All I did was run the following command from telnet on the new router……

nvram set et0macaddr=XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX

(using the et0macaddr value, of my old router, from that router's configuration file)

Then I tried uploading my *unedited* firmware again, and boom! Success!!

Hope others find this solution useful!

Can't copy configuration! It says I can't copy my configuration to a different router. All these routers are the same (E2500) with the same Tomato firmware. Why won't the configuration files stick?

Very frustrating!

so simple..
just need to mount /tmpfs/optware in /opt with bind option… et hop, install successful.

Re: install optware on jffs by gloupgloup, 21 Oct 2017 20:05

My router (WNR3500L) have only one usb and it's used for a webcam.
I would like to use it with mjpg-streamer for optware.

I can't find any howto for intalling optware on jffs, only usb or nas looks available.

Is Shibby USB affected by the Krack exploit etc. ?

* Update: 30-30-30 resolved the issue *

Unable to mount Toshiba 1TB ext. desktop USB drive to R6300V1 running Sibby 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-132 K26AC USB AIO-64K. I have tried formatting the drive to NTFS and EXT3, with all the appropriate settings under USB and NAS > USB Support. Also attempted to find the drive by logging into the router and running fdisk -l, but had nothing returned. Also re-flashed with no joy. Any resources or direction form the group would be appreciated.
