I apologize if this is posted somewhere but I've not had luck finding a posting about how you use a Mac (OSX) to flash the RT-N16. Seems that Asus is wintel friendly so the restore software only runs on Windows :-( Bummer! After reading a pile of info, I thought I needed to get DD-WRT onto the RT-N16 first and then use the Upgrade Firmware from the GUI. Somehow I remember doing similar with my old WRT-54GL. Following the directions from a number of sites and here, I managed to get Code: dd-wrt.v24-14929_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini_RT-N16.trx onto the RT-N16. I was able to setup etc. and everything looks good. I was careful and did the resets in between following the directions carefully. But now I can't get any other firmware onto the RT-16N. I go to the Administration:Firmware Update, select the Tomato build Code: tomato-K26USB-1.28.9013MIPSR2-32K-RAF-V1.2v.trx (also tried renaming the same file with .bin, and each time I get a screen that looks like it will starts. It shows "Wait 299 ..." with a spinning wheel and then the connection gets reset. I wait for 5 min. because I don't know if this is actually doing something. When I go back to 192.168.1.1, I am still at the initial DD-WRT install. So two questions: Any idea what I did wrong here and why I can't get Tomato onto the router? Because I'm on a Mac computer can I upgrade to the right firmware using tftp? Thanks in advance for your help.
