7. Manually update your computer’s IP address to 192.168.1.10. (or anything between 192.168.1.2 – 192.168.1.254, do not set it to 192.168.1.1 since it will be the default IP for Asus Router.) 255.255.255.0 12 is the netmask to use. Now, before you begin using the router, I suggest that you perform a hard reset (30/30/30 reset). After flashing the router without performing a hard reset, I discovered a slew of strange issues, especially when flashing from DD-WRT firmware. The following is details about how to hard reset a DD-WRT router:
With Ethernet Ports Say in Version 108, it’s much easier to find out which TomatoUSB LAN ports correspond to physical LAN ports. As you can see in the picture, LAN2 is linked. LAN Port 3 is, however, the actual physical LAN port to which I linked the router. As a result, the port is shown in reverse order. (Physically, Port 1 in Tomato is Port 4.) Physically, Port 2 in Tomato is simply Port 3.) In TomatoUSB, go to Basic -> Network -> Ethernet Ports State -> Invert Ports Order to adjust the Port Order.

So, what’s the best way to mount Tomato Shibby on an ASUS RT-N12D1 that’s currently running OEM ASUS firmware? I’ve seen instructions that say to use tftp, others that say to use the ASUS Firmware Recovery Tool (Windows application; I’m on Linux; maybe it will run under Wine), and still others that say to load DD-WRT as an intermediate firmware until upgrading to Tomato. And, based on my own findings, the OEM firmware Administration sites have a firmware update tab. Where I’ve found instructions, they weren’t for the RT-N12, but for the RT-N16, with the caveat that they should work for other “similar” routers.
I use the recovery feature for Asus routers (restore button on the router). I’m just on Linux and don’t have a Windows browser. It’s just a straightforward web gui. Then I flash the mini version first (I think tomato-K26-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-132-Mini was the last one I used), and then the one I really needed (tomato-K26-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-132-Max). Perhaps flashing the complete version directly is possible; this is how I do it.
How to update wireless router firmware! (asus rt-n12 b1
You want to install the fantastic FreshTomato firmware on an Asus RT-N12*? There’s no problem at all. But there’s another clue that this is a router with a KRACK problem that FreshTomato hasn’t fixed. So, if you want to use a lot of WLAN, an ARM router is the way to go.
The second step is to choose the correct version of FreshTomato from the numerous options available. FreshTomato was chosen because the router lacked USB ports and we also needed VPN functionality. You may, however, opt for the Max edition. The fact that the file is under 8 MB, which is the router’s flash power, is important. It’s not surprising that the firmware is for the RT-N5*; the two devices are compatible.
It’s now time to flash the client, which is essentially the same as installing the Asus firmware. But now, in the Asus Recovery Tool, pick the FreshTomato version, but don’t click on upload just yet! We’ll assume you’ve used a cable to connect the router to your device.
Disconnect the router from the power supply and use a pen to push the reset button. Hold your finger on the switch and turn it on again. The first LED turns off after around 15-20 seconds and then begins to flash slowly. This suggests that the router has entered recovery mode and is cooperating with the previously prepared tool. Another benefit is that if a flash fails, an Asus router can typically be saved using this method.

Tutorial restore asus router to default firmware
This step-by-step tutorial will teach you how to flash your Asus RT-N12 D1 with DD-WRT. The RT-N12 D1 differs from its predecessors, the B1 and C1, in terms of DD-WRT installation. Note that DD-WRT isn’t officially endorsed on the Asus RT-N12 D1, so your results can differ.
When I first installed DD-WRT on this router, I bricked it a few times. When I finally “thought” I had the procedure down to a few simple measures, the router refused to load, and I bricked it once more (I actually bricked three separate RT-N12 D1s). Then I remembered I needed to repeat all of the insane steps from the beginning in order to get it right. Yeah, what you’re about to do will be a pain in the butt, but I’ve checked that it works on three different RT-N12 D1 routers. If you try to take a shortcut, good luck, because the measures outlined below were the only way I was able to load DD-WRT consistently. What are you talking about? Your router was bricked when you took a shortcut! If you tried to cut corners and bricked your router, scroll down to the Unbricking Your Asus Rt-N12 D1 section at the bottom of this page.
