Hi, thanks for the build.
However there is a problem that wl1 doesn't work in the 5GHz (N mode) in wrt610n v1. Do you know anything about that ?

Cheers,
Ricardo Oliveira

Hi great job, however wl1 doesn't seem to work on the 5GHz configuration (N only). NO SSID broadcasted. If I use it as 2.4GHz it works. Do you know any reason for that ?
I'm on a WRT610n v1.

Cheers,

USB works for me as well, but I have only WNR3500L v1 and not v2 if it counts.
Swap works as well!
I have used the manual from this ddwrt page:

I have E4200
I installed this version:

http://tips.desipro.de/

Kong-Mod-E3000-USB-FTP-SAMBA3-OPENVPN

and i tested using IPERF WAN-LAN speed.
i was able to get only to 103mbit.
any idea how i can get much better speed?
on the stock linksys i got 630mbit.

i installed your version cuz i thought ill get more than 100mbit compare to the other DD-WRT's.

can you please explain me what should i try with ur firmware?

thank you for the great job man!

Linksys uses fast-nat since they don't offer all features dd-wrt offers.

In Linux, there are actually two separate types of NAT that can be used, either Fast-NAT or Netfilter-NAT. Fast-NAT is implemented inside the IP routing code of the Linux kernel, while Netfilter-NAT is also implemented in the Linux kernel, but inside the netfilter code. Since this book won't touch the IP routing code too closely, we will pretty much leave it here, except for a few notes. Fast-NAT is generally called by this name since it is much faster than the netfilter NAT code. It doesn't keep track of connections, and this is both its main pro and con. Connection tracking takes a lot of processor power, and hence it is slower, which is one of the main reasons that the Fast-NAT is faster than Netfilter-NAT. As we also said, the bad thing about Fast-NAT doesn't track connections, which means it will not be able to do SNAT very well for whole networks, neither will it be able to NAT complex protocols such as FTP, IRC and other protocols that Netfilter-NAT is able to handle very well. It is possible, but it will take much, much more work than would be expected from the Netfilter implementation.


The speed you are getting is about the best you can get with normal NAT using this router.

Thanks alot for the answer! now i understand it well.
and what can you say about CTF - Cut through switching.
is it a part of Fast NAT?
im asking this because i did simple test in the Linksys firmware. tested speed of WAN-LAN with CTF ON and CTF OFF.
the results:
CTF ON:
630Mbit
CTF OFF:
110Mbit

so CTF is a part of Fast NAT?

and im guessing there isnt any version of DDWRT with FAST NAT/CTF avilable, from what you know, right?

hi Kong, is there any possible to integrate with over 16 vlan trunk support in your mod? I really need trunk vlan 85 and vlan 51 for seperate iptv signal. Much appreciated.

Hi Kong!

Thank you very much for these builds!

I'm having 1 issue so far... my WOL isn't working anymore for my desktop, when it used to work before.

I was running a build previous to 17670:17737M (E3000), but I didn't perform a wipe before upgrading to this version and I used the "dd-wrt-e3-usb-ftp-samba3-dlna-O2-v24-K26-broadcom" BIN file to upgrade my router.

Any way you could let me know if wiping & rebuilding the config would fix the issue or is this a known issue already?

Any assistance with this would be GREATLY appreciated.

EDIT/SOLVED: It turned out to be my workstation. I had to enable the option "Enable LPM" on my network adapter under device manager.

Apologies and thanks again!

My apologies if I missed it, but where can I find the step by step instructions for the openvpn portion of this build. Thank you in advance.

I have a USB flash drive formatted FAT with a label of OPTWARE.
Automount is enabled. blkid shows the drive and automounter mounts the drive to /tmp/mnt/disc0-part1

Should the latest builds automatically mount this drive to /opt?

I did try adding the UUID to the "Mount this partition to /opt" field but unfortunately this did not automount to /opt. Am I missing anything?

Are you on 17940 now?
What output under usb does the webinterface display?

I documented my first experiences with ddwrt and openvpn here. I hope you can use it:

@dfwcard

Give a look at: http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=147837

I was going insane to configure the newer versions, because of new GUI.

Hi Kong;

This may sound a bit old school, but is there menu based implementation for USB Modems anywhere?

The idea is to;

1) be able to dial out and link to multiple simultaneous ISPs.

2) be able to dial in and use the router as an intermediary internet connection.

If its all done from a web menu, then of course, we can hand this out to any user to use.

Thoughts???

Hello Kong,


Just by way of reference, the 17990 BS or EKO 2.6 kernel kits automount my flash drive just fine.

The same flash drive does not automount in KingKong 17940.

Thanks,
Geoff

Hi Kong!

Happy New Year!

Would it be possible to release your newest firmware with the older Broadcom drivers also?

The newest drivers aren't as seasoned/stable as the older ones.

Currently, I'm running version 17865M on my E3000, which is the last version with the older wireless drivers, but I would love to stay current with your newest builds.

Thank you (as always),
Kamika007z

Hi Kong
Thank you for this great release! Im wondering how to enable 3G support from my HUAWEI E182 mobile broadband. I can't seem to find any option, will this be possible in a future release?
Thank you for you time!

I found the setting, no worries :)
Though I think there is a problem with the WAN status of 3g modems. It tells me that it is disabled although Im using it.

March 4, 2012 12:27 PM

I cant get 3G to work.
When i click connect it says that the connection type is disabled..

Any pointers ?

March 5, 2012 11:37 AM

Hi Kong,

thanks for this great firmware!

On my Belkin F7D4302 v1 the LED's don't react when unmounting USB thumbdrive through SES button.
It's just the green LED that lights up constant, no movement.
Unmount itself works great and can be seen in the GUI.

Any tips on how to get the LED to react?

thanks in advance!

Kong Mod is working also on a Asus RT-N10U, I installed 18730 (stdkong) via web-gui from a dd-wrt big build, and it's running with no problems (apart from de minidlna issues with large media libraries).
You can add RT-N10U to the supported routers.

Hi. I've just started using Kong Mod and it's been fantastic so far. I do have a couple of questions though. I tried mounting an NTFS drive via the USB port unfortunately the router complains about the filesystem not being recognized. Is there any way to get the router to mount an NTFS partition? Also, can a fat32 drive be mounted to /opt? Thanks.

Hi,
it's really cool to have the DLNA feature with Kong's mod :)

But one question:
At the moment I use an 1 TB drive with the router, because my new 3 TB drive doesn't work correctly. I've read it's because these large drives need GPT, which is already in the DD-WRT Kernel but not activated. Would there be the possibility to activate that in future builds? That would be really great :) (Or maybe there is another way to get it working?). Thanks
