Wireless troubles

Hi! Im a beginner and do not understand everything im doing or writing at this moment so please be nice :)


I installed toastmans tomato for WNR3500lv2 1.28.0497.1 standard on my WNR3500lv2 router. This worked fine updating it straight from the stock firmware.

LINK: http://www.myopenrouter.com/download/37027/Toastman-s-Tomato-Firmware-for-WNR3500Lv2/

It turned out that I had to use an static ip / dns to access internet, i dont know if i can change this to auto and still be online? (would be great)

But its ok, my real problem is that i cant connect my HTC one X to the wireless network. I have tried both auto ip and static ip settings in the phone.

(Auto Ip does not work on my PS3, but static does!)

Thx for answers

Did you turn on DHCP in the

Did you turn on DHCP in the firmware settings? Changing it (turning it on) shouldn't disconnect what you already have setup.

This one is now solved. Thx

This one is now solved. Thx for ur answer.

I had to type in hostname / domain name in the basic settings for the DHCP solution to work. (atleast i THINK.. its good, because now my router pick up DNS servers, without me typing them, and gives IP adresses automaticly).

And i did a 30-30-30 reset. Because at first, my router wrote atleast 100 error logs a minute about the dhcp settings beeing bad, right from the newly flashed firmware. Now its ok :).

My next step is to optimize the wireless network. My PS3 can bearly stream normal non HD movies via PS3 media server.

My phone does not recieve optimal signal ethier, i had a setting (dont know what setting) where i reached 20mbit download speed. (speedtest.net app) Now im down to 2-3mbit :(.

My net line, cable, supports 24/1 mbit.

Any suggestions for my settings?
