    If you can solve any of the problems of LAN 4 or Random Restarts put here to see us please.
    I did not know that there was OPENWRT for this device, they should join forces and fix the problems because OPENWRT and TOMATO are both very good.

    Im a big newbie so please dont shoot.I ran the tomato-K26USB-1.28.AT-RT-N5x-MIPSR2-3.5-140-RT-N53.trx and had 2.4 as well as 5 ghz the problem i ran into was I could not get an ip address from any port has anyone seen this issue?
    or am i just not setting it up correctly? I can only see the wireless connection in the device list but i do see the ports are showing in the overview page with traffic (maybe) on port 3 and 4.

    I did not have that problem.
    Remember not to use port 4. She is in trouble.
    I went back to the original version until some solution appeared.

    Hello, newbie here. I've been having the same problems of restart/losing connection with v3 of this router so I started doing research.

    I read that the FW version 3.03.25 is much more stable than the later 3.04.xxx versions. I can't post a url for the download or the site that talks about it, but I will be happy to provide if there's someway of doing it...

    I have installed 3.03.25 and concur it is stable.

    I noticed that it seemed to lose a little of the range with the 5ghz connection with this version. The v1 and the v3 of this router are almost identical, the difference being the transmitter chip. V1 uses BCM43236 and V3 uses BCM43236B. The differences in power output are found in Tables 12 and 15.

    I have no idea how to make a tomato, but if anyone can start with this older FW version it may be worthwhile. I plan to stay with 3.03.25 for now.

    On your router does the led on the WPS button always turn on and flash?
    Here it is, I already tried some commands to disable but without success.
    In the last build, 2018.4 deactivated all the logs, web monitoring, until date and time synchronization, but the most I got was 14 hours without restarting.
