I had attempted to flash Victeks build 'tomato-RT-N66U-K26-1.28.9013MIPSR2-64K-RAF-V1.2x.trx' via the Asus Firmware restoration program which was going fine until I received an error so fair enough I tried again and it always gets past upload and system recovery in progress to 100% then loses connection in the status. Ive tried flashing the stock firmware back but same thing. When the unit is powered off and on it goes straight to firmware recovery mode which I can reach by visiting the routers ip. Ive tried doing an NVram erase from there and also from the wps button (for 30 secs after turning on) Ive tried flashing also via the recovery web config and tried also tftp2. Nothing seems to work. Ive tried all this on a windows 8 pc and windows 7 laptop with firewalls etc disabled. IP set to 192.168.1.6 with subnet 255.255.255.0 and gateway 192.168.1.1. After the first two stages of the recovery with the asus firmware restoration I get : Failed to connect to the wireless router. Check if the router's power led is blinking which donates that the router is in rescue mode. Anyone know anything else I can try? Just bought this and kind of pi**ed off that it seems to be bricked.
