Experiencing a 35% reduction in wired up/down speeds with my R7000 running Adv Tomato ver 140. As a Tomato noob, which common settings could be the culprit? On version 138, I had NordVPN setup and working pretty well in both Win-10 & Ubuntu 17.04. However, wanted to get this speed issue resolved first. As described, I have U-verse 45/6 using the AT&T NVG599 RG in passthrough mode to a NG R7000. I was getting 49/6.9 a week ago. Now, it's 29/4. Not horrible…still usable, but, not what it should be. I'm fairly certain I have inadvertently hosed up a DHCP, DNS or routing setting somehow. Hope you can give me some ideas to guide my troubleshooting journey.

I use Advanced Tomato v128 and enabled permanently the OpenVPN client. Interface-Type is set to "TUN" and protocol to "UDP".
I can of course easily check over some ip-information webpage that my traffic is effectivly routed over the VPN-server.
Anyway, I don't know, if the DNS - queries go over the VPN. Or does the router still send the DNS-queries to the modem? In this case, of course, the DNS-queries go from my modem to the ISP. This would be a privacy concern. Or does it send the DNS-queries to the VPN?

So to be sure, I would like to find a way to do some kind of a traceroute for the DNS queries to see, where they go through and what DNS-server is actually queried (PC and router get the DNS server address over DHCP for their default configuration).

How can this be verified?

Hello

After locking my self out I have to re-install Tomato on my R7000. I had v1.28 on it and it ran fine. To stay current I am wondering if I should install v1.40 multiWAN?

I do not need a multiWAN version. Any down side to using it in a single wan environment.

thanks guys, BJ

Shibby MultiWAN features by Brian_caBrian_ca, 06 Aug 2017 02:50

@s3n0: that is not sufficient.

I am using Shibby-v140 and had the same problem as @Fraoch2, there was no possibility to switch the WAN-type (DHCP, PPoE, disabled,…)

My Tomato-configuration was also 'Wireless Client Mode' in the 2.4GHz settings and this setting disabled the WAN-type menu.

So I had first to change 'Wireless Client Mode' to 'Access Point' (the default) and then the menu changed and I could change the WAN-type again.

To find this costed me some time…

Hope that helps another one with the same problem.

I figured out how to make it work, so far. I just made two different subnets and set my gateway to the Tomato Client. Then set multiple subnet routing in my old router in the out building. Able to access internet and still access the different subnets I have currently.

Is there a better way to do this?

Thanks
Brian

Hi all,

I'm new to TomatoUSB and trying to set up my Linksys E4200 as just the access point for internet. I have the client part setup fine and access to internet via the Tomato. I have it set up as a wireless client to access the internet from my main building. I then have a different router in my out building that runs the rest of my little network. Everything is set up for static, no DHCP on my small network. All my computers are pointed to my main router, 192.168.3.251. My main router/switch are connected to my computers, so I'm trying to get my main router to share access to the internet via the Tomato wireless client. Do I need to some how tell the tomato router that the main router is the gateway point? If so, where do I do that? Hopefully this isn't too confusing, my brain is semi scattered at the moment.

Hi there,

I have a router with Tomato USB by Shibby with 2 LAN:

br0 (LAN): 192.168.2.1/24
br1 (LAN1): 192.168.10.1/24
I also set up an OpenVPN server (TUN) to allow my smatphone to access to the LAN.

I can reach the br0 (I can open the Router web page) but I cannot open a web page on LAN1.

How can I allow the VPN to access to LAN1. Need I to add some iptables?

Thanks for the help!

WAN Static IPs

in discussion Discussions / General » WAN Static IPs

Good afternoon,

I am trying to setup the subnet that my ISP has assigned me (69.xxx.xxx.176, SM: 255.255.255.248). I'm looking to break my router into 2 VLANs
VLAN 1: Has all the regular PCs, gaming consoles, etc…
VLAN 3: Has the servers that will get the WAN IPs

I've gotten as far as configuring the VLAN, and it's assigning the correct IPs. What I haven't been able to do is route those IPs to the PCs from the internet (all of them do not return pings). I'm assuming I'm missing a very simple setting somewhere.

I would have attached captures, but am not allowed at the moment.
Basically, under advanced -> LAN, I've created another entry:
br1 Disabled 69.xxx.xxx.177 255.255.255.248 Enabled 69.xxx.xxx.178 - 182 1440

Then under Advanced -> VLAN:
3 3 Yes (for port 4) LAN1 (br1)

Thanks,
Martin

1) choose custom path and enter

/mnt/sda/bandwidth/

replace "sda" with the name of your usb flashdrive or name of your hard drive

2) if you setting it up new be sure to click CREATE NEW FILE / RESET DATA

3) also if you are saving it to a folder be sure the folder exists (is already created), in my screenshot/example i saved it to my flash drive under the folder name "bandwidth"

NOTE: if your not sure the name of your drive you can run the following command from inside the tomato GUI, just go under TOOLS>SYSTEM COMMANDS> and type in the box:

BLKID

and then hit "EXECUTE" button
it should say something like:
/dev/sda: UUID="27E0F895CBB1"

in this case, my drive name was "sda"

hey,

I wonder if you can help at all?

Trying to mount Tomato to send syslog files to a PC next door (which is my server) but the syslog at the moment has an error CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -6

I used to have it all working but it's been that long since i used syslog watcher that I can't quite remember how to set it up?

I have a small server which is at IP address on my network 192.168.1.103 and have a user name and password set up on it.

Not sure these settings are correct? think i had something else after netbios name when i used it a while ago…..

Thanks

CIFS Client / Syslog settings by DatanodeDatanode, 18 Jul 2017 10:52

I installed shibby 1.28 and works perfectly.
My router is a linksys e900 , i use it for family(computers on lan , cellphones , tablets , chromecasts) and wife store business (shared wifi access).
"The question" is if i can limit any wifi connection (even without knowing macs) and let other wifi connection (my chromecast devices) get unlimited connection).
Any option to add mac numbers of my devices to get full access , and option to unknown devices to get limited.

Need help , thanks.

wifi limit setup help by XtremeARGXtremeARG, 16 Jul 2017 01:47

Hi, it is my first time to use tomato router.
my current FW is "1.28.0000 MIPSR2-132 K26 USB VPN"

tomato QoS setup :
DL : 3072
UL : 1024

Default Class : VOIP/Game
VOIP/Game : 60%-80%
WWW : 30%-60%

Scenario :
We have 2 desktop in our home.
One is for my gaming and for other family members use.

when I'm playing online games like Dota2 or LoL
then someone in my family use facebook.

My latency spikes like crazy from 51-75ms to 100++-400++ms

I am really wondering why if they use the other computer for streaming video
like in youtube or other streaming site.

my latency doesn't spike in 3digits range.

Anyone who has the same case with me?
What are the fixes you did?

Thanks in advance.

I have a paid VPN paid service that uses SoftEther and I also have a flashed Asus RT-AC66U with Advanced Tomato with its latest update. I want to set up my SoftEther VPN service to my flashed router. how would I go about that? what files or information do I need to have this working? any tutorials would be gladly appreciated, thanks in advanced.

What is the best forum for posting a Shibby bug/issue? I looked around here and it seems these posts are not answered very quickly.

Hope you guys can help.

Thanks

I'm hoping someone is still looking at these posts, because I'm not getting much joy on .linksysinfo.org

Can anyone please help me with this little problem?

Here's the original post…

i there.

I have a Netgear R6400 loaded with the latest AT (140). I have divided my network into three segments:

192.168.11.xx + VLAN 11 = home-office

192.168.22.xx + VLAN 12 = guest

192.168.33.xx + VLAN 13 = IoT currently unused

I have an ER-X acting as my main router for the WAN. Two ports are sending tagged VLAN traffic to a Netgear 8 port switch (which is working as expected, so I'm pretty sure the traffic is being tagged correctly) and to the Netgear R6400 with AT. The ER-X is also acting as DHCP for all three subnets.

My plan is to accept tagged traffic on the WAN port which has been bridged to the primary LAN(br0). For now, I'd like ports 1, 2, 3 on the VLAN 11, and port 4 on VLAN 12. Then I'd like a Wifi on VLAN 11 and 12, one for Home use, one for guests.

The problem is, that while the guest subnet seems to be working (port 4 issues a x.22.xx address and the Guest wifi also works, both giving me access to the internet) , the home/office subnet (x.11.x VLAN 11) doesn't do anything much. If I attach to ports 1-3 i don't get issued an IP, and I can see the Wifi but can't can't join it.

Here are the relevant screens…
Buf if I try logging into "Home - sorry you can't use this!" wifi, which is supposed to be attached to VLAN 11 on br0, I get no IP address and no internet access.

So it's something to do with binding/bridging the main eth1 (wl0) to VLAN 11 that's not working…or something? Any thoughts?

I can't post links, but the original post on the www.linksysinfo.org site is titled "Confusion and problems with tagged VLAN setup"

I know I'm doing something pretty basic wrong, I'm just not sure what! Any advice appreciated.

Hello,

I have followed all available online instructions to no avail. I have a 1TB HDD that's plugged into a Netgear R7000 (USB 2.0) running the latest version of TomatoUSB (1.28.0000 -140 K26ARM USB AIO-64K). Since upgrading, I can no longer see my files on the HDD - Only an empty folder named "EFI". Does anybody know how to re-connect?

Thank you,
Chris

I have two internet connections. Connection A is slow but unlimited while Connection B is fast but has a limit.

I would like to make use of tomato's load balancing capability. What I want is for the less bandwidth consuming activities (e.g. web browsing, facebook app, etc.) to use Connection A. All bandwidth extensive activities (e.g. Skype, Youtube, Viber, Facebook Messenger) should use Connection B.

I see Tomato has a feature called "Multiwan Routing" but I have no idea how to set it up to achieve what I want.

Please help! Many thanks.

:-)

Multiwan Load Balancing by rickoyrickoy, 30 Jun 2017 16:53

I tried to find menu in Tomato configuration but without success. I need to deny some domain like "www.domain.com" and "sub2.domain.com" but I have to keep access to "mail.domain.com". Is there a way or it can be done from bash?
