    Hello guys!

    Just need help for my stupid problem, upon searching the net I found out that the Asus WL-520GU is compatible with the USB version of Victek. The problem is i can't seem to find a 4mb flash version on it.

    Please help or enlighten me.

    Well, as you say, there is a link on Victek's site for "Tomato RAF 1.28.8520 ND + USB + VPN. Version for ASUS WL-500gP, 520gU and in general for MIPSR1 USB Routers.". However I wonder if it will actually fit as it is 4047012 bytes which is too large for a 4MB flash per the below from a previous post from mstombs:

    The flash is 4MB = 4*1024*1024 = 4194304 Bytes
    The CFE is 256kB = 256*1024 = 262144 Bytes = 0.25MB
    The nvram is 128kB = 131072 bytes = 0.125MB
    Max kernel + filesystem image size is 3801088 Bytes = 3.625 MB

    Having said that, if you look at the TomatoUSB Compatibility table, looks like the R1 Lite build should work. And looking at Toastmans builds, I noticed a couple that might fit:
    Code:
    Toastman Builds\MIPS32R1 Kernel 2.4 (WRT etc) Builds\Tomato-1.28.7619- ND -Toastman-K24 MIPSR1 builds and ipv6\tomato-NDUSB-1.28.7619-Toastman-USB-Lite.trx 3,268 KB
    Toastman Builds\MIPS32R1 Kernel 2.4 (WRT etc) Builds\Tomato-1.28.7619- ND -Toastman-K24 MIPSR1 builds and ipv6\tomato-NDUSB-1.28.7619-Toastman-USB-Std.trx 3,584 KB
