You want Kernel 2.6 (experimental) for MIPSR2 NoUSB Std or NoUSB VPN

Flashing Instructions from linksysinfo [linksysinfo.org]
Quote :
To flash Asus RT-N16 and RT-N12 with this build, use Asus Firmware Restoration Utility (worked like a charm for me many times before I was able to produce a bootable firmware image), or load DD-WRT first, and then flash Tomato from DD-WRT Web UI following this step-by-step guide by soldier and cariyawa.

ASUS Download Page [asus.com] (Choose Wireless->AP/Router->RT-N12)

I don't think I'm splitting hairs here and it should be mentioned...
This router is not compatible with the original Tomato firmware, but it is compatible with Tomato mods such as "Tomato USB" or the "Teddy Bear Tomato Mod."

To use N in client mode or repeater bridge mode, you must install DD-WRT. Tomato doesn't support it. For all other uses, use Tomato - the interface is far better.

If you must use DD-WRT, use dd-wrt.v24-14684_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini_RT-N12.trx from here. [ftp]

Haha you and I both. Got rid of my WHR-G300N and bought another Asus G router that was posted a few months ago on slickdeals. Of course the Asus power supply died and now I'm back to the Buffalo router...FML

I have a old Netgear-G router set-up in my home that I am using for long time without any problem. I am no expert with these Tech things.

I am wondering what are these dd-wrt or USB (or similar kind) routers do extra than G routers? I know there is some N routers which is upgraded (mostly speed?) version of G routers.

I would like to learn about this so that I can buy a "updated" router.
