Tomato flashed Dual wan Router from CD-R KING (CW-5356U/CW-5358U) Read Page1

  • @polka

    Sir, using
    raspberry pi + ddwrt (chilispot)
    on

    ticket system successful already?
  • Matagal na sucess yan. Hanap ka lang ng tutorial for ubuntu chilispot install with ddwrt. Ubuntu is debian based so you can folow that using a raspbian os.
  • @warry

    kung gusto mo lng low power ticketing system router, google mo mikrotik router.

    <click here for link>

    sa support ng mikrotik check mo ung thread nila since off topic n un dito sa cdrking tomato firmware
  • Sirs, may build po ba na BT+nocatsplash. Current hardware ko kasi is 8Mb flash lang. Naka entware din po ako, may package kaya para sa captive portal?
  • sino po mabaet dyan magsshare ng script nila shibby singlewan + qos po yung maganda timpla lalo na sa dota2

    thanks!
  • @oami

    walang package para sa nocatsplash, you can download VPN-Nocat builds tapos install mo na lang yung Transmission via Entware or Optware.

    @bigteboy

    check page 1, no idea kung meron dota2, kung wala man, well google mo na lang yung port or IP address na ginagamit para sa dota2, pwede ka magtanong tanong sa mga pfsense users lalo na yung ginagamit pang internet cafe at tanungin mo kung ano yung QoS setting nila sa Dota 2 speciafically kung ano IP address or Port yung ganagamit ng game.
  • First time ko magpost sa thread na ito, although ilang beses na rin ako nagbasa at madalas nasasagot ang mga katanungan ko. Maraming salamat sa mga nagpopost ng mga alam nila tungkol sa Tomato. Pero ngayon, hindi ko talaga mafigure out paano gawin yung gusto ko.

    NakaWireless Ethernet Birdge ang CW5358 ko, nakakonek siya sa Huawei B593-s931 (yung sa Globe LTE Home Broadband), kaso hindi ko magawan ng paraan na paganahin ang guest wifi na bukod sa primary network. Hindi makapagbigay ng IP si kamatis sa br1. Hndi rin gumagana ang bandwidth monitor (since I suspect nagdedepend ito sa WAN).

    May paraan ba para gumana parin ang guest wifi sa wireless ethernet bridge? Dati nakawireless client si kamatis pero nagkaron kasi ng problema simula nung nagupgrade ako from build 124. Yung tipong, hindi magtatanggal yung router ng isang araw. Magfrefreeze siya at at ang tanging paraan lang para gumana ulit e plug/unplug o on/off button. May post ako sa linksysinfo kaso walang sumasagot. Patulong naman. Ito yung original post ko doon:

    Hi Linksysinfo Forum guys! I've been a long time user of Tomato since I bought a Tomato Flashed wireless router. I had no major problems ever since with Shibby builds since build 109. However, I am running into some problems lately. But before that, here is the wireless router I use:

    CatchTech CW5358U
    Broadcom BCM 5357 chip rev 2 pkg 8
    CPU Freq: 500mHz; Flash size: 8MB, RAM: 32MB
    Specifications is somewhat similar to the ASUS N10-U. The only difference is that this is a N router (300mbps).
    Currently running Shibby tomato-K26USB-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-2.8-130-VPN

    Wireless Client + Guest Mode = Freeze/RAM Problem
    At first, I had it setup as a wireless client that connects to our primary router. It has two virtual wireless, one private (br0 bridge) and other is guest (LAN1, br1). Activated bandwidth limiter at the guest vlan (br1). This setup works fine for weeks under build 124. However, the router started going mad after upgrading to a newer build. It doesn't last a day without freezing/crashing (Wireless active but can't connect). The primary reason is that the RAM is being consumed until it falls down below 10% available and thus the whole thing crashes. I tried thorough reset of NVRAM but It doesn't work either. The bad thing is that even if I go back to older builds, the issue still persists.

    Wireless Ethernet Bridge + Guest Mode? + Working Bandwidth Monitor?
    So, I decided to try another build, now it is the VPN build (the first one is No-Cat). This doesn't show the RAM problem above so far. The current setup is that the Tomato router is connected through Wireless Ethernet Bridge to the primary router. So, the primary router handles DHCP. This seems like a better choice for me since devices connected to the primary router and tomato can communicate and share resources with each other (I mean, media files through Samba/Media file sharing, printer, etc.) I can access the gateway of both routers. The primary router is set at 192.168.1.1 and the tomato router's gateway is 192.168.1.2. However, Guest wifi doesn't work in the same way I did with wireless client mode (br1, set IP: 192.169.1.1, DHCP enabled, LAN1). The Guest Virtual wireless is being broadcasted but can not able to provide a working IP address to the client (Identifying... Unidentified network in Windows Network and Sharing Center). I have the thought that the router can't provide IPs to the Guest wlan since DHCP is handled by the primary router. But DHCP is enabled for the br1 bridge, where the Guest wlan is.

    The following questions is inline with the Wireless Ethernet Bridge Mode:

    1. Is it possible to still provide Guest mode (separated from the private network) when Wireless Ethernet Bridge is turned on?

    2. Is there a way to make the Bandwidth and IP monitor work even when WAN is turned off? (Since the WAN is automatically turned off when under Wireless Ethernet Bridge Mode). The bandwidth monitor just shows blank info for daily, weekly and monthly reports.

    Thanks a lot for possible help from you guys.


    Salamat sa mga tutulong. :-)
  • Hindi makapagbigay ng IP si kamatis sa br1. Hndi rin gumagana ang bandwidth monitor


    this is expected since

    1. sinabi mo na rin sa sarili mo na naka wireless ethernet bridge, so there's no NAT happening and thus
    2. hindi gagana ang bandwidth limiter

    kailangan talaga dyan naka wireless client mode, dahil na rin sa encryption sa WiFi kailangan ng extra RAM at meron ka pa ata 2 Virtual Wireless. So there's 3 active wireless is active.

    try adding a swap and see if this resolve the issue.

    kung ayaw, kailangan mo na talaga siguro bumili ng mas mataas na router like RT-N16
  • @polka

    Sir, wala nang workaround na available to make it work? kahit yung sa bandwidth monitor lang?

    Yes. You're right. Pero since mukhang di talaga possible ang Guest Wifi pag wireless ethernet, inalis ko nalang para magamit sa iba yung nvram na nacoconsume.

    May swap partition na din yung router. Pero it won't help dun sa pagfrefreeze. Working naman yung swap since nakikita ko na nagagamit siya. Pag nagfreeze na yung router, blinking lang continously yung USB na kung nasan yung swap partition. Hindi ko talaga alam kung bakit nagkaganun. Okay naman siya before (noong build 124 nga) pero simula nung inupgrade ko, nagloko na. It seems that may mali akong ginagawa though nireset ko naman na yung nvram and gumamit din nung tftp. Start configuring from scratch, rolled back to the old working build - nagpepersist yung problema.

    Well, di pa option yung pagupgrade. Wala pa budget. Hehe. Ipon nalang siguro para sa mas mataas na router. Let go muna sa guest WiFi since di naman siya priority.

    Thoughts ko lang, Kung ganoon na di possible makapagbigay ng IP sa br1 pag nakawireless ethernet, e dapat wala sa status page ni tomato yung DHCP off on LAN, DHCP enabled on LAN1 kasi di naman siya makapagbigay ng IP sa LAN1 sa setup na ganito. Pero ewan, di naman ako maalam sa ganito.

  • bandwidth monitor will work, makikita mo sila by their interfaces eg br0 br1
    bandwidth limiter wont work since kasi nga kailangan ng NAT. Naka rely kasi sa iptables/conntrack yung bandwidth limiter ng kamatis

    also parang may issue yung USB drive mo, try mo palitan baka maayos. common issue na kasi yan lalo na pag flash drive, sa USB HDD hindi naman issue yan.
  • @polka

    Sir, Present ang interfaces pero hindi tama yung values. Yung sa wl lang yung tama.

    sa br0:

    sa daily:
    External Image

    2 days up na yung router pero walang laman yung daily report. Naka Advanced Tomato firmware ako ngayon tsaka inalis ko yung guest wifi kasi di naman gumagana kaya wala si br1 sa interface.

    Sige sir. Try ko gumamit ng iba para sa swap partition.
  • @polka

    ou nga noh.ahhaha nice. thank you very much sir.
  • @razbernardino

    ok na yan kahit sa wl interface as long as makikita mo yung bandwidth monitor nya, also the bandwidth logs daily will only work if there's NAT, so there you go again.
    maraming mawawalang freatures pag naka bridge mode or disabled yung WAN, ganun talaga. Hindi designed ang tomato to log bandwidth per device.
  • @polka

    Ok sir. Maraming salamat! :-)
  • sir polka

    kakayanin kaya ng router natin memory + swap ung snort at dansguardian?
  • ^nope, those apps are CPU intensive, kailangan naka 600mhz MIPSEL or 800mhz dualcore ARM ka dyan. Gagana naman sya yun nga lang sobrang bagal mag respond yung webpages, inaabot ng 10-15seonds bago mag load yung page. Although using raspberry pi did solve it kahit naka default clock speed sya sa 700mhz. but for raspberry pi, I recommend diladelle since it can filter even https unlike dansguardian na http lang kaya i-filter.
  • Sensei polka kakabili ko lang po nang 5358u hindi ko po mapagana yung bandwith limiter per ip, na compare ko sya luma ko na 5356u na gumagana naman po... anong firmware po ba dapat ko gamitin sa 5358u.. god bless po sa lahat...
  • mga master oky na po solve na po maraming salamat god bless

    TPC God bless po.... :)
  • Ipopost ko lang yung about sa RAM problem ko last time, nawala na siya. Even without using SWAP. Isa isa kong tinest yung mga builds backwards hanggang nakarating ako sa build 121 at hindi nageexist doon yung problema (hindi pala sa build 124 yung stable gaya ng nasabi ko before). So I suspect na sa build after 121 e may changes sa Tomato (Shibby) na nagcause ng problema/instability sa virtual wireless interfaces (since the issue exists on both wireless client and wireless ethernet bridge).

    Doon naman sa may problema din sa paggawa ng Guest wifi na still nakabridge pa rin ang dalawang router, it is possible kaso ihahardwire yung dalawang routers. Kailangang i-static route yung IP ng guest bridge sa primary router o i-NAT through firewall ng secondary router using:

    iptables -I FORWARD -i br1 -m state --state NEW -j ACCEPT
    iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o br0 -j SNAT --to $(nvram get lan_ipaddr)

    but it's not the ideal solution in my case kasi mahirap ihardwire yung dalawa at maeexpose talaga ang cable sa direct sunlight/rain.

    Para ito sa mga future readers na same case ng issue ko. Thanks!

  • kasi mahirap ihardwire yung dalawa at maeexpose talaga ang cable sa direct sunlight/rain.


    install the wire inside a conduit. a PVC pipe will do the work.

  • install the wire inside a conduit. a PVC pipe will do the work.


    Thanks sa suggestion Sir Polka. I know that will protect the cable. Pero hindi lang kasi weather/environmental condition ang factor. It is not ideal (Well, as of now) to have that setup since I want it to be neat as possible (by connecting them wirelessly) and mahirap in a way na maraming dadaanan yung linya at hindi straight view. Personal choice kumbaga. :-) Sa file sharing speed/overall performance naman, e talagang magiimprove pag naka cable pero di ko pa nakikita ang need for faster speed as of now. Swabe naman pangstream ng movies. Hehe.

    Again, thank you sa quick responses at eagerness mo to help people reading and browsing this thread. Malaking tulong para sa mga kagaya ko. Cheers!
  • ^as long as there are no issues on your side, that may be fine. Pero personally I prefer connecting them wired, medyo masakit nga lang ang implementation at start pero painless naman na in the future, while wireless, well, you have to worry about the compatibility and the noise level on your area, as day passes by as well as the day by day degradation of the wireless chipset pag naka wireless client or wireless bridge kasi ang isang router the wireless chipset is obliged to work at 100% all the time kung baga laging naka todo yung gasolina nya, parami ng parami ang mga network sa 2.4ghz, 5ghz may solve it but weak naman sya when it comes to distance and wall penetration.

    By default, tomato is using power management to preserve it's chipset life.
  • I'm planning on purchasing a ZTE MF65M (SmartBro) to replace my aging e1553 3G dongle that I use with the 5358u. Anyone know how to connect this (or any other) MyFi device with the 5358u? I'm currently using as FW 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-112 K26 BIG VPN.

    Thanks in advance for any info.
  • ^any pocket wifi will not work on this router or any kind of host based network device like yours.

    so choose ka na lang, USB modem or pocket wifi.
  • Yeah, thought as much, thanks for the confirmation though.
  • Sir polka, Meron po bang walkthrough for captive portal for tomato shibby? Thanks
    Cuurent firmware tomato-K26USB-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-130-Nocat-VPN
  • To everyone,

    tomato-K26USB-1.28.0507.2MIPSR2Toastman-RT-N-VLAN-VPN-NOCAT
    pwede po ba ito sa CW-5358u? thanks again
