Re: Tomato QoS major bug (resolved - normal behavior)

Which version of Toastman are each of you using, and will it work on Cisco/Linksys WRT54GL router ?

....it looks like the best firmware (and most updated one) for your WRT54GL router would be from the ND branch (2.4 kernel):

Thanks, folks.

Just over 24 hours ago, I had looked around and reached the same conclusion - tomato-WRT54G_WRT54GLUSB-1.28.7633.3-Toastman-IPT-ND-xxx series (BTW, there seem to be 6 flavours even of THAT one), though had not yet read the specific notes on it.

My current Shibby 1.28 series build is based on the 2.4 kernel too.

The 4shared site wanted me to register to get anything, so I tried the MediaFire site »www.mediafire.com/?88t1vzzcgrphx (both sites were suggested by the author »www.linksysinfo.org/index.php?th ··· s.36106/ ), and it showed me all of the .BINs, including that series, (not sure that 4shared did that) and it needed no login.


My original reason for researching Tomato was that I was considering MLPPP with my (then) 5M/800K DSL, so I went out and bought the WRT54GL.

Never got around to that, but I put the router into service anyway, and when I later got more serious about VoIP (which was one of several contributing factors in my switching to Cogeco cable just over a year ago, and later to START's 20/1.5/300 plan last April), the QoS issue raised its ugly head.

Apparently, DD-WRT and Open-WRT also have some sort of QoS too, but I only installed DD-WRT Mini briefly as a way to get Tomato installed, as the factory firmware has its own limit to the .BIN size.

BTW, I was worried that the WRT54GL itself would bottleneck my (then) 30/2 Cogeco feed, but was pleasantly surprised that it did not, EVEN with latest factory firmware at the time, and I tried Tomato anyway sometime afterwards.

I have not needed to buy a newer router so far, and the Shibby build seems 'not too shabby', other than what we just covered here regarding QoS.


We have only 2 things about which to worry :
(1) That things may never get back to normal
(2) That they already HAVE !
