Bekijk de volledige versie : No Tomato 1.10 upload possible

13-10-2007, 14:15
I finally found enough courage to change the standard firmware and try Tomato 1.10.

Through the webgui I selected the tomato.trx file, but it won't let me upgrade, saying this is not the correct version. I did not know there was a check on that?

What options do I have to upgrade? Just use the Firmware restoration utility?

Download the Tomato or any other firmware.
Open a command prompt and 'cd' to the directory where you downloaded the firmware (.trx file).
Type 'tftp -i PUT Tomatoxxxxxx.trx' but DO NOT HIT ENTER! (Use your downloaded firmware)
Unplug the power to the router.
Hold down the reset/restore button while reconnecting the power. Wait until the power light starts blinking before releasing the reset/restore button.
Hit enter in your command prompt window (to run 'tftp -i PUT Tomatoxxxxxx.trx').
Wait 15-30 seconds for the image to upload. If you receive a TFTP timeout message start the process over again (from step 3).
Wait 4-5 minutes and power cycle the router.

Think I got to get tftp.exe first ?

Got the windows client version, tftpd32, will try to execute.

you can use asus rest. tool, or windows tftp, no need to download anything.
On winXP you go to:
- start, run
- enter "cmd" to get a dos-windows
- use my description or any other

I guess (not sure) tftp is a part of windows.

dont worry, do it step by step.
As I can see, your native language is german. If you want, I can guide you in the german forum.
have a nice weekend.....

TFTP is a part of XP. I use Server 2003 and there it is not present I think. But i'll use the restoration tool.

My primairy language is Dutch, but German is also no problem :-)

The thing I'm most afraid of is bricking the device

Thanks. Anything more specific? Wireless config, wireless signalstrength or something else?

the wireless strenght is vey below satisfaction, in WPA Personal modus with tkip or AES i dont get any connection. and otherwise the conection i wil get is around 1 mbit connection. even wityh wireless power around 84 mw.
Withe the oleg firmware i will get around the 80mbit connection, with the same power.

Hmmm, sounds like I should use the Oleg one and finally get into Linux to expand the router's possibilities...

Is Oleg's wireless function better than the Asus standard one?

I did it with the firmware restoration util, flashed tomato 1.13 on an 500gP V2.

At first WLAN WEP/WPA did not work (like someone else wrote here), then I cleared nvram like it is said in the tomato FAQ. Now it is fine.

I'm very impressed with this, though I have yet to try other firmwares, I only had Asus standard fw on it.

The gui is very clean and compact, the router is very fast. I have Azureus running at full speed which was impossible with standard fw.

Is it possible to install tomato on a wl 500g? Not premium that is :)
