What is Tomato ?

QUOTE
Tomato is a small, lean and simple replacement firmware for Linksys' WRT54G/GL/GS, Buffalo WHR-G54S/WHR-HP-G54 and other Broadcom-based routers. It features a new easy to use GUI, a new bandwidth usage monitor, more advanced QOS and access restrictions, enables new wireless features such as WDS and wireless client modes, raises the limits on maximum connections for P2P, allows you to run your custom scripts or telnet/ssh in and do all sorts of things like re-program the SES/AOSS button, adds wireless site survey to see your wifi neighbors, and more.


Advantages over DD -WRT
Written by me tongue.gif (This is solely based on my view of point. For some of you you may use DD-WRT if you want all the stuff)

DD-WRT is getting heavier and heavier with all the un-needed stuff. they have included a lot of un-needed stuff and the router tends to hang from time to time because of this (the older ones were just fine tongue.gif). Next I've tried OpenWRT , it rocks but pretty much you'll have to configure everything by hand and it sucks big time for lazy people like me. Then i came across with Tomato. At first after trying it out , it seems to be lacking of something. Eventually , I fell in love with it as its simple , easy to use and has a superb QoS functionality (you'll only get that sort of QoS if you pay for the DD-WRT firmware) and as for OpenWRT you'll have to use SSH/Terminal and do it via the terminal (command prompt). Overall , it seems to be pretty good

Woot
at last, Tomato firmware thread

jump from DD-WRT to Tomato mainly because they do not provide speed control in the QoS (DD-WRT need to purchase special edition to have that sort of features)

Tomato may lack some features
but for home usage, it serve me well

after using quite some time, i do agree that Tomato are much lighter than DD-WRT (especially v24 standard)

I do have to agree that tomato is way to lighter (sure it may lack of certain stuff) but its way better then DD-WRT in many ways. Elegant , simple and it gets done things right. before this DD-WRT was something like that , but now they have messed it up totally by adding unwanted stuff

Yeah you can just flash it using normal method. But keep in mind you need to restart your settings. do a hard reset as DD-WRT config doesnt work with Tomato. So you'll have to do a hard reset after flashing and re-configure your router

Is Tomato capable to increase signal strength? Seems like Tomato have more happy users than DD-WRT judging from comments I Googled.

if you need freaking good function then go for DD-WRT, it is just got so many amazing function....
while Tomato firmware got its best QoS and snother thing is you dont need to reconnect to the router after you save change(most of the module)..it will just restart the affected service. Example like we tmnut user always have to recoonnect to get the best connection, if you are using DD-WRT you will need reconnect to the router but Tomato firmware wont.

im still learning to adjust the QoS....any master can post some tutorial? tongue.gif

does tomato QoS has the ability to set bandwidth control for each client connected like what they had in paid version of DD WRT?

and frankly speaking, i never did successfully configured my QoS in DD-WRT. Hope tomato QoS is simpler and better

i'm really looking forward to that function.

i failed thoroughly setting QoS in DDWRT V23 SP2 and yesterday i tried V24, it got even worst, the router automatically reboot every 5 minutes or so if i enable QoS and heavy traffic flow.

things is that i do not have much chance to sit there all day and play around the setting cuz there's 3 other person in my house needed the connection.

will give tomato a try some time next week

anything with encryption pretty much bypasses the QoS. You should include it in other TCP/IP traffic as bulk or the lowest

I prefer the modded one as it comes with improved QoS. The speedmod just comes with the speed mod but the modded version comes with improved qos and the ablility to overclock the rotuer's cpu to handle high load !

I am using that

_ Updated to BusyBox 1.10.2 (IP WAN DHCP renew tested and fixed)
_ JHash Conntrack 8092 connection (Speed Mod)
_ Conntrack default values adjusted for high P2P load
_ Theme for visual handicaped
_ Eight additional themes, Bluedream, Enlightenedd, Tijuana, Asus, Linksys, Buffalo
_ Spain TZ included
_ CPU Frequency.
_ Previous IP display
_ Two additional window for Button script
_ Bandwidth Limiter per IP/MAC
_ Code Optimization

It comes with SpeedMod + lots of mods and its way faster. It has improved QoS , which is better then regular Tomato !

For DD-WRT , I recommend you to do a clear flash and then re-flash. Downgrade it to Linksys Original Firmware and then flash it from the original linksys firmware. Its far better then DD-WRT. Plus I've been noticing improvement for my p2p connections. Its way better now tongue.gif

The other option you have is to do a direct flash. it will work , but you'll have to hard reset your router. That is how I did

I flashed directly from DD-WRT. Then i had to hold the reset button for 30 seconds so that it will remove the old settings !

Added on June 26, 2008, 8:32 pmi just discover that SpeedMod tomato not much different from stock Tomato. Now i just flashed to Tomato Victek after being poison from bro prasys.
Much more nice, esp QoS part .. u can QoS based on person instead of general in stock tomato firmware

I flashed mine within 5 minutes. For the username and password, both are "admin" in my case, if it won't work try "root". The only thing that troubles me after flashing is that I cannot find the place to enter my Streamyx login details, it's like hidden.

Just in case you are as blur as me, it's at Basic > Network > Choose PPPoE on the drop down menu (Type) under WAN / Internet. It took me quite sometime to look for it as I was searching on every single tab looking for the form, who knows it is hidden—considering I know quite nothing about those things.

Any free wifi signal strength monitor that will display signal strength in %? The bars aren't that reliable IMO.

victek is jack of all trades. Victeck mod's includes the speedmod + Improved QoS. But since it has some extras , it doesn't give you as much of Free RAM as Speedmod's firmware. Both do have its pros and cons. If you are more into p2p and you want more memory space , then opt for speedmod. but if you're into qosing and p2p too , then opt for Victek

70mW consider safe for the router. But the best is to wait until warranty finish. Open up the router and put some "metals" inside it.

Well Tomato firmware is getting popular and its way better then DD-WRT in many ways. especially when it comes to stability. DD-WRT was once a good firmware and it is now bloated up as windows vista.

i'm using a DSL-2640T currently.. also got a WRT54GS which i'm flashing with tomato atm, but no spare modem so can't test it with internet... well I *could* through the dsl-2640t but it would add a few unneeded ms

I tried flashing it with WRT54GS.bin and it immediately said error, then I tried WRT54GSv4.bin and again a error thing popped up. What should I do?

I'm attempting to put Tomato 1.19.8815 Mod

Is there a way to completely block P2P using this firmware? I used the access restriction to block it now. But still haven't test whether it is working.

Tomato has the predefined P2P applications/port numbers. Just include them in the access restriction rules and you'll be fine. It is so simple.. anyway, I'm using Tomato on WRT54GSv4 and WRT54GL .. both configured to support AP+WDS and the WRT54GSv4 as the Internet gateway connected to an ADSL modem. Been using Tomato since it was available and love the simplicity ..

What version do you have for your WRT54GS? Version 5 and above I believe is not supported by Tomato. You may need to go for DD-WRT.

personally I suggest to use Tomato if your router have large memory, eg. 32MB or above.

disagree...Tomato runs perfectly in my WRT54GL V1.1, which has only 16MB...
I only use ddwrt for its universal repeater feature... biggrin.gif

I have not tried dd-wrt, but I guess you've got no other choice for a third party firmware for your router. When I was hunting for a new router, I specifically looking for WRT54GL since that is the last model that Linksys is selling and have a Linux kernel in them. My wrt54gsv4 was the last version that has Linux in it ..

other way is get a kerbaus n let it eat some tomatos laugh.gif

I have trouble configuring the QoS function, it seems that when my housemates uses Xunlei, no matter what I do to the QoS settings, there is still significant lag in the web surfing speed. Max connection is at 4096. no ACK is turned on. Checking the QoS bandwith list, the Xunlei bandwith is in the class I set it to be, which is lowest. I had the maximum upload for it at 50% and download at 40% and yet, it's still hogging the bandwith. Another thing is that, I tried with utorrent and port forwarded it, yet, turning it on would still produce some significant lag to web surfing.

one more thing, how much can I boost the antenna value, since I'm sitting next to the router, I don't want my brains to be fried.

1) i dont set any Qos, but with heavy torrent, other PCs ddl, still no problem surfing.
what i do is change the Conntrack/Netfilter setting on TCP/UDP Timeout
anyting bigger than 120 change to 120, and anything smaller leave it as it

2) 70 mW should be more than enough

Xunlei uses port 80 - which is HTTP Traffic. You'll have to set HTTP Trafic for yoyur friend. Plus its a bit hard to throttle Xunlei as well as it can jump one port to another and it can bypass firewall !

it uses port 80 for TCP and 15000 for UDP by default, even if I limit the upload bandwith for the port 15000, there appears to be no effect. My housemates are getting pissed and they've decided to put QoS aside and set some time window to download torrent which I do not like. But since I can't get QoS to work properly, i had to yield.

It appears that Xunlei seems to be the cause for the QoS to not work, however, I couldn't understand why turning utorrent on and with it's speed limit turned on in utorrent itself, there would still be lag in the network.

wonder how fast the tomato firmware connecting back the wan IP after disconnecting (PPPoE) ? I'm using dd-wrt v24, and compare with d-link PPPoE, I noticed that d-link PPPoE is much faster then dd-wrt, once I disconnect n connect again, it will get the wan IP, unlike dd-wrt, I have to wait for another 2 or 3sec.

You are doing it wrong. You should set up QOS on a per MAC/IP basis. Bascially, your housemates PC should be allocated 1 static internal IP and you give him a max up/down speed and it will not affect the rest of the users.

Your suggestion literally means spliiting connection rite? I thought that by allocating a max speed, his application would use up the max bandwith allocated and it wouldn't affect other people. If i got 5 people in the house, he's only ever to get 20% max, no?

That can only be done if you limit him via his MAC address or internal IP. That is how I do it and there are no issues at all. The only downside is that they will never be able to use the full speed of the connection at any one time.

Hi i'm getting a router either today or tomolo.. can't stand with my current router d. I'm doubt between buffalo and linksys (y this 2 becuz going to flash to tomato)

if linksys, which model should i get and which version that can be flashed?

Spend a little bit more and buy WRT54GL if U go for linksys brand. Proven can be flash to tomato and DD-WRT (not those micro version)

Well , the ND one uses a new driver (people say they get better performance and so). As for your case you can use ND to take advantage of the new improved driver but there were some bugs reported. So its up to you. as for me , I am using the non-ND version !

Ok then. How much improvement in p2p can we expect to see using Victek version and the official Tomato version? I know it's subjective but I just wanna be sure before I go reflash to victek modded version.

After reboot my router (wrt54gl v1.1 with tomato firmware) then it will be ok but after a while then come back again. And my ping is all more than 200ms but my connection shows excellent while the speed is 5.5mbps only.

ps: using vista and notebook wifi config. all set to highest

Yes the QoS is better. The default QoS setting is ok for average user.
You will not see improvement if you're the only one who use the connection except you are surfing web while torrent-ing.
For me it is good because i shared my 512 package with 3 computers, I can barely surf after turn off the QoS....

There is some risk to flash your router but it is easy to do that.
1. Make sure your router model and version is supported.
2. Using only ethernet cable for flash.
3. It is beeter to not using the computer while flashing to avoid sudden error on computer.
4. Remember to do a hard reset after flashing the router.

I'm thinking to get Linksys WRT54GL but what's the differences between DD-WRT and Tomato ?

Where can I download tomato firmware ?

Any other addons like Antenna and etc to include before my actual purchases ?

Thank you.


Added on August 31, 2008, 12:27 amOh yea , WRT54G better or WRT54GL better ?
WRT54G is with 16mb ram , ver 4.

barry80, yes, is stable version, with more than 45 features (external and internally) differing from official Tomato.

_ Up to 100 users/applications for UPnP, Static DHCP, Restriction Access...
_ igmproxy for IPTV
_ CAM mode for wireless when not used

Guys, for information about IP/MAC QoS user manual:

My dl speed is 1.5mbps and upload speed is 512kbps
For the QoS, if I wanna limit each pc to 50kb/s, is it I should put 512kbps?

How to access my modem interface? if the modem ip is 192.168.0.1 and the router ip is 192.168.1.1

another problem...
at first, the pc (192.168.1.3) can surf net and bt, but few minutes later, it can surf net anymore, but bt still running, am I setting wrong?

1st. Read the manual link posted instead of asking, FAQ and answer already exposed...

2nd. In Administration/Scripts/Firewall window box, write:

/usr/sbin/iptables -I POSTROUTING -t nat -o vlan1 -d 192.168.0.0/24 -j MASQUERADE
ip addr add 192.168.0.2/24 dev vlan1 brd +

Save, reboot and check.

3rd. Run TCP patch in the PC, execute TCP Optimizer, and adjust timeouts properly in Advanced/Connection menu in the router.

already 3 days monitoring the qos function behavior, so far all those setting i've been setup is quite satisfied. only minor thing is the port range for 27015-27016 is still in "Low" cuz this port range should be "Highest"? hmm.gif

as u can c in the images, i did qos for certain port range like 6112 for warcraft3tft & counter-strike port range 27015-27016 in "Highest". but only port 6112 successfully qos to "Highest" while the port range 27015-27016 qos to "Low" hmm.gif sweat.gif

for this result, warcraft3tft didn't get any high ping & very stable while the counter-strike can't play at all in average pings 200ms+(normaly i can get below 60ms with ip 60.50) doh.gif (xunlei loaded X 2 rigs; streaming radio with 128kbps running smooth)

can anyone help me? icon_question.gif only port range 27015-27016.....what should i do to get this port range to "Highest"? hmm.gif

I'm facing this problem too. All things(BT and IMs) are fine except surfing the net using browser. Only rebooting the router helps to solve it.

okay...i got a d-link router modem with ip 10.1.1.1 & can get access with the scripts

/usr/sbin/iptables -I POSTROUTING -t nat -o vlan1 -d 10.1.1.0/24 -j MASQUERADE

another artnet router modem with ip 10.0.0.2 also can get access with the scripts

/usr/sbin/iptables -I POSTROUTING -t nat -o vlan1 -d 10.0.0.0/24 -j MASQUERADE
ip addr add 10.0.0.3/24 dev vlan1 brd +

but only the billion bipac 5112s with ip 192.168.1.254 can't access by the scripts

/usr/sbin/iptables -I POSTROUTING -t nat -o vlan1 -d 192.168.1.0/24 -j MASQUERADE
ip addr add 192.168.1.2/24 dev vlan1 brd +

something wrong with the scripts?

after few days monitoring; editing....i find out the qos for certain port must set with MAC or any address instead of static ip & dhcp assigned ip to make qos really functional!

now the port range 27015-27016 already set to "Highest" thumbup.gif

if not mistaken, modem network ip cannot be same as router network ip

cannot : modem = 192.168.1.x && router = 192.168.1.x
can : modem = 192.168.0.x && router = 192.168.1.x

so need to change different network ip on the router or modem

do u know how to change the billion bipac 5112s routing table? as u said, from

192.168.1.0 to 192.168.0.0 & ip 192.168.1.254 to 192.168.0.1 ???

a problem happened to me yesterday sweat.gif streamyx down again doh.gif & i can't access my router modem hmm.gif i thought must be the artnet router modem hang already. so, i reboot both of em; linksys router & artnet router modem c whether can enter 10.0.0.2 or not. too bad, it still cannot access. rclxub.gif

luckly streamyx back online today! i try login router modem again. thx god! i successfully login to artnet modem.

i suspect if the router can't get any WAN address from the modem (streamyx down?), the scripts won't work?

Scripts work.. but let's do in the logic way for your billion bipac 5112s

Modem IP 192.168.1.1
Linksys LAN IP = 192.168.2.1

The script then should be as you wrote previously.

/usr/sbin/iptables -I POSTROUTING -t nat -o vlan1 -d 192.168.1.0/24 -j MASQUERADE
ip addr add 192.168.1.2/24 dev vlan1 brd +

not necessary 3rd party software, if the router itself support WDS then it can be link.

that is why, I never buy any router that dun support 3rd party software. Nothin much to play with..tongue.gif

No need

For instance I am using Apple's Airport Express (2006 Edition) along with my Linksys WRT54G. Both of them do have WDS support (as for linksys you'll have to use a 3rd party firmware and apple has WDS Support out of the box). I can just pair it like that without worrying about anything else. Just make sure both of them do support WDS !

I think the only option I truly appreciate from Tomato is the ease of nvram deletion. I don't really like the interface(other than the snappyness. The good thing it has going for it is the snappiness of the interface, but I wish there was a more professional looking interface for it(I really, REALLY like dd-wrt's interfaces.))

I like how this firmware is light though, unlike dd-wrt. This light feeling is what dd-wrt should have. Currently I am using Victek's firmware on my wrt54gl1.1, didn't bother changing the 10240 connection limit either. The real reason I changed (to tomato) was because dd-wrt v24sp1's QoS managed to do something undesirable. Speedtest.net speed test tells me I have an average of 1320/420 kbit/s down/up.

DD-WRT's QoS made it 1/3rd to 1/5th that(down). Didn't affect the upstream though. Surfing was pretty much impossible on it, and so was everything else.I downgraded to v24(non sp1) Same thing.

Changed to tomato+victek 1.21 and I can say everything works smoothly now.

One thing I hate about it though, is that the QoS is too complicated. It doesn't seem like it tracks downstream/affects downstream either.
I seem to have unclassified QoS connections on the graph, but I cannot tell if it is due to the QoS daemon restarting(resulting in all connections becoming unclassified and thus will take time to propagate into a classified state). What irks me though is that my data isn't classified under class A(which is what I set for bT and whatnot.) Overall it's a great firmware, with more potential than dd-wrt. I just wish that some things were implemented more like dd-wrt though. For example disable wireless upon router reboot.(and use the SES button to start it up.)
The sad thing is that I don't really want to run much scripts on this thing(since it's a bother and I know nuts about scripting) and I only want some things (like QoS) to work flawlessly(which to my surprise is working just fine, but I believe I can fine tune it further.)
So far the experience has been nothing short of wonderful though. Browsing is fine(but for some reason(I believe it's my firefox) sometimes pages don't load properly. Loads fine in Opera though.) even with torrents, online radio, chatting going on in the background.

Overall this was a great experience(better than my tomato 1.19 experience, which was horrible and the reason I went back to dd-wrt) but I wish the QoS was more encompassing(for uploads and downloads) and I wish there was a comprehensive guide(other than "I do this for my settings" because not everyone's setup is the same, I might want to do something they did not outline). And all that I've seen is some threads that are all "I do this for my settings", though I may have missed some things. ( I really liked the rhester thread though, his was very comprehensive and covered many things that isn't usually discussed.)
For example I am using vpn for torrents, and I set my torrents to use class A.
I see nothing in class A, so I set vpn to use class A too( via dst port 1080).
Am I doing it wrong? I don't know, but I still see nothing in class A most of the time(unless bittorrent's udp uses my default port.)
Anyone able to shed some light? I'm really starting to like this, just wish it ran a little differently(interface, some features, etc) and that I'm able to fine-tune my experience further via QoS.
Also anyone able to shed some light on the hardware firewall capabilities of this router?

Define how you link your VPN with your torrent. Is it through a proxy sever , or does it tunnel through directly ?

using bolehvpn, via openvpn.
I notice that my pc is sending to destination port 1080 so I simply classified those as class A.
I don't notice anything in class A though.
Moreover there are things that are unclassified as well...
(even though I classified them to be in class A)
