Addendum to Guide to “Install Tomato firmware on Asus RT-N66U / RT-N16 / RT-N12 B1 / RT-N12 C1 / RT-N10U router 韌體教學 | Moonlight Knight”

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2012/07/23

I had a bit different experience getting the Tomato Shibby firmware loaded on one of my Asus RT-N66U routers than the description from Guide to Install Tomato firmware on Asus RT-N66U nor this Video of the Asus Routers Rescue Mode Tutorial.

Somehow, the Asus Firmware Restoration Utility kept indicating “The wireless router is not in rescue mode”, no matter what I did.

This might be due to that I run VMware Workstation with some virtual LAN adapters on most of my machines.

Or not: the web-interface on the Asus RT N66U would not get into the firmware restoration mode either.

This worked though:

  1. pull the power plug on the RT N66U
  2. press and hold the reset button
  3. insert the power plug on the RT N66U
  4. wait for the power led to slowly blink
  5. release the reset button
  6. wait a few minutes for the modem to become stable
  7. in the mean time set your PC to these IPv4 settings: – host = 192.168.1.100 – mask = 255.255.255.0
  8. start your web-browser
  9. point your web-browser to http://192.168.1.1 (it will time out, don’t worry)
  10. press the power button to turn off the router
  11. wait a few seconds
  12. press the power button to turn on the router now your router gets into rescue mode
  13. refresh your browser so it goes to http://192.168.1.1 again
  14. upload your Tomato firmware

      Please get back to me in about 2 weeks. I’m really busy right now, but in about 2 weeks I should have a bit of time.
      In the mean time, can you specify which URLs give you a 404 Not Found?
