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

  • Gusto ko po sana mag upgrade to the latest Fresh Tomato Firmware compatible for CW5358U

    Current:
    Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-136 K26 USB BTgui-VPN


    Mag work po kaya to?:
    freshtomato-K26USB-NVRAM32K_RT-N5x-MIPSR2-2020.3-BT-VPN.trx
    1 File(s) 8,302,592 bytes

    nakaka lito po kasi dahil sabi sa Feature Matrix ni FreshTomato yung BT-VPN :
    flash < 8MB

    https://wiki.freshtomato.org/doku.php?id=feature_matrix

    Question:
    1. Ano po best FreshTomato firmware na pwede with BT GUI?
    2. Possible po ba na gumamit na lang ng optware for the 'max' 7.9MB build? Meaning install max firmware and install Transmission as optware?
    3. may mga issues po ba sa FreshTomato? nasa akin pa naman yung installation steps ng Shibby builds and i think same pa yung mga manual steps?

    Thank you po in advance mga Master.

  • may nagbebenta po ba dito ng cw-5356u or cw-5358u..?
  • hi tanung ko lang kung may update na firmware for cdrking cw-5358u? pa link naman po thank you
  • sino naka cw-5358u na naka SMB V2
    Ano gamit nyong android app for SMB V2
  • VLC gamit ko for media player, pwede din Kodi.

    if you want to mount it as a directory, kelangan naka root ka install that specific app to mount a SMB to particular directory on your android.

    latest firmware kay shibby (already outdated, in-hiatus yung development) - <click here for link>

    latest firmware kay freshtomato (up-to-date) - <click here for link>

    peform nvram reset when upgrading. as usual adjust vlan to fix the port assignments.

    leave it for at least 10mins, if the router didnt respond (eg cant connect to wifi) power cycle, it and try again. if that still didnt work, assign a manual ip address under 192.168.1.0/24 subnet (eg 192.168.1.2 / 255.255.255.0).

    since this router is very old (32mb ram) I recommend upgrading to newer one, like newifi and install pandavan if you want the USB features on it.

    to be honest if you want the Samba and torrent stuff at low power costs, bumili na lang kayo ng Android TV box na mxq. by default rooted naman na yun so you can run a samba server on it, plus torrent client.

    edit: freshtomato has better LTE modem support, lalo na sa mga Hilink based pocket wifi. you can now connect it to tomato router and share the internet connection via wired lan and wifi.

  • Ano po ba good alternative sa cdr king router? Bumigay na yung sakin matagal na. Gusto ko gumamit ng router with pldt fiber. TIA!
  • ^ get a newifi3 router, tapos ask mo na din yung seller to flash pandavan on it, after that yan na yun. you get the same set of features you get on tomato (well mostly) and also meron yan USB apps so you can still run the things via USB like SMB, Transmission etc...
  • Thanks polka! Grabe active ka pa din dito :)

  • sorry for necropost, iupdate ko uli yung router namin on latest freshtomato build still it works, kaso di ko na alam yung vlan config.. hehe please help thanks..
  • @whitehat43
    Parang hindi na kailangan i-configure yung VLAN sa FreshTomato FW.
    Version 2022.3 yun huli ko natest sa cw-5358u last month.
    freshtomato-K26-NVRAM32K_RT-N5x-MIPSR2-2022.3-Mini.trx
    Gumana agad WAN at mga LAN ports right after installation w/ NVRAM cleared.

    pero eto backup ko VLAN settings from shibby if you still need it.




    btw, napansin ko sa cw-5358u ko na naka freshtomato.
    kapag marami ang device na naka konek, bumabagal masyado ang internet kahit disabled ang bwlimiter.

    example:
    upto 49mbps ang speedtest with 1user connected via wifi.
    pero pag 6+ users ang connected kahit pa isa lang ang active user, around ,1-2mbps lang ang speed.
    A lot less pa nga sa previous version ng freshtomato.

    but when I replaced it with linksys e1200 (borrowed), nagagamit na ang available bandwidth ng bawat connected users at no issue kahit magsabaysabay pa sila ng heavy usage.

    di ako sure kung sa freshtomato lang itong issue or dati pa sa shibby kasi sa freshtomato ako nagstart nun ginamit ko siya ulit recently. pa observe sana kung ganyan din sayo whitehat43 pag ginamit mo yun sayo.
