    Just wondering how to go from dd-wrt to tomato. Will the .trx file work from dd-wrt?

    I didn't try (many year with Tomato... ) in any case replace the .trx suffix by .bin and should work.

    I find it VERY helpful to do a hard reset before going to Tomato. Like Victek said, rename the .trx to .bin.
    Also, check out Teddy_Bear's mod, which will allow you to take advantage of your usb port.

    easiest way is to use asus firmware restoration utility. i've used dd-wrt on my asus wl-520gu up until the wireless issues with tomato was resolved.

    Read the guide from so you are sure to take note of the password since the pwd is encrypted differently from the std. tomato

    you can at the upgrade tab in dd-wrt select restore defaults after flash and point it to the tomato update file.

    I didn't bother flashing my recently bought Asus WL-520GU with DD-WRT. I went straight to flashing it with Tomato. I used the instructions here.
