    Hi All, I am a tomato newbie and just tried to flash my router with shibby version 117. A popup comes up and says the firmware upgrade was unsuccessful, the router reboots, and everything is just as it was before I tried the upgrade. Any advice? I have tried it connected to the admin interface via wired and wireless same thing. Thanks, Rich

    I posted a similar question a few weeks ago: http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.php?threads/loading-tomato-on-rt-n53-rev-a1.69981/#post-245017

    I have the Rev A1 of this router but the instructions should work for whatever RT-53 model you have. You need to use the Asus Firmware Recovery utility to load Shibby's or Victek's RT-53 build onto this router with the router in Recovery Mode. The stock firmware for this router will refuse to flash any of the tomato builds. :(

    I'm currently running tomato-K26USB-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-117-RT-N53.trx.
