Use the Mediafire link in the second post and download the build of your choice (I used the EXT version that has USB and NTFS support): tomato-K26USB-1.28.7497.1MIPSR2-Toastman-RT-Ext.trx
Keep the reset button pressed in for the next three steps:
3) While the unit is powered on Press the reset button for 30 secs
4) Keeping the reset button pressed, unplug the power (do not let up on the reset button)
5) Plug the power back in and wait for another 30 secs
6) You can now let up on the reset button
Once the router is in this mode you will have access to a special "CFE menu".
7) Plug your desktop/laptop into port 1,2,3, or 4 and set your IP Address to 192.168.2.8 with a gateway of 192.168.2.1
8) Point your IE browser (Do not use Firefox) to 192.168.2.1 and CFE menu will be available.
9) Load the bin file you downloaded in step 1
10) It will take about 5 minutes to load dd-wrt. After 5 minutes I opened a new tab and was able to connect to 192.168.1.1. Reset my ip address back to dhcp in order to connect.
11) When logging into the ww-drt interface for the first time it prompts you for a password, I cleared the password just to be safe.
12) Navigate to the firmware upload screen and then load the trx file from step 2. I selected the option to reset the settings after flash.
Now to play around with the QOS settings. Any ideas on optimal settings for VOIP and NNTP?
You sir are a gentlemen and scholar...worked exactly as you stated.
I ordered it but cancelled as soon as I saw the comment on the thread about only gigabit on the WAN port. Completely retarded. If I'm needing gigabit speed support on my WAN then I'll be running a Cisco 2600 series.
Erm... Since when do Cisco 2600 series routers have gigabit support?
Perhaps you're thinking 2800 series? And it's been confirmed that this does have gigabit LAN, not just WAN
Well looks like i bricked mine. Followed the instructions in the wiki. Got DDWRT loaded but after loading tomato the router is unresponsive. Tried a 30/30/30 and nothing.
Is the green light illuminated on the top? I noticed it takes about 30 to 60 seconds for it to "boot up" once you plug it in. I thought mine was dead at first, but then I just let it sit for a minute and the light came on. Also, as was just mentioned, you'll need to turn on DHCP while you are plugged into the LAN port. This may be why you couldn't connect.
I thinik this is where a lot of people are having a problem. I couldn't connect after I got Tomato loaded either. I did the 30/30/30 then switched the IP address on my PC a few times and it finally worked. Then set DHCP enable on the router and have been running for 2 days perfectly.
