    First of all, i have already done a search and that didnt help.



    I just upgraded my firmware on my router (ASUS RT-N16) with Tomato firmware. I followed the step i found on a website and everything worked fine until i ended up with the Tomato software. There is a intermediate step of installing DD-WRT before Tomato in the process. This causes the default username/pass of Tomato to make some issues because DD-WRT have a different password mechanism. But that should be solved by pressing the reset button on my router to reset it to default, but i cant get it to work. I have done so many resets but its still not working. I can simply not use GUI on my router as long as i dont have the user/pass for my firmware Tomato on my router. Can anyone help

    User: admin/root
    Pass: admin

    Try again from Tomata FAQ
    http://www.polarcloud.com/tomatofaq#installing_from_ddwrt_hyperwrt

    Installing from DD-WRT, HyperWRT, etc.

    Note: If you're using the DD-WRT firmware, please see the information below about password incompatibility.

    .... [cut]
    If you're upgrading from the DD-WRT firmware, telnet into the router *before* upgrading and type "nvram get http_passwd". The result will be your password in Tomato. This is necessary because of a change in DD-WRT's way of using the standard http_passwd variable.

    Hi. Thanks a ton for answering. What happens if i already have forgotten this step and Tomato is already installed?

    Thanks again for reply. But dude, using either telnet to retrieve password or using TFTP to reflash, doesnt it require username and pass? if thats the case, how will i be able to do that?

    With the router plugged in and booted up, try holding down the reset button for 30 sec.
    After it reboots, try to login with
    username: root
    password: admin

    You are an angel dude, it fixed the prob just like that. I kept on trying the 30 sec reset thing with power cord of and on, but i guess the trick was to press the button for 30sec without doing anything with the power cord, and with obviously router up and booted. Thanks a ton. U Saved my day.
