    I have acquired this router for free (long story) and I think it would be a great router to have sit in the closet in case my rt-n16 dies as a temp takeover until a newly rt-n16 or other router would be ordered and come by mail.

    I can't find any darn builds for it though, and the repository is a bit confusing.

    Does Toast or Victec have anything recent, I wouldn't be surprised if this model were abandoned, and I saw a comment about no newer builds than 52 for it, but I can't findanything that old.

    I hope someone has a link to some fw's I can choose from...

    Much Thanks in advance!!!

    Happy new year All!!!!!

    no no no.

    Asus RT-N10 is NOT supported by build54 and later (54 and 5x). Only build52 support RT-N10.
    This is my latest build for this router:

    Or you can try tomato with newer broadcom driver. There is a chance it will work, but this was not tested yet.
    If you want test, here is a link:

    Please let me know.

    btw remember, if you brick your router, you can simply restore firmware using "asus firmware restoration" from asus tools.

    Best Regards!

    Thanks Shibby for the clarification, I've never had that router, I was just supposing.

    I saw the <=52 post on TomatoUSB website but I thought it was an older post.

    Shibby, I immediately went for the newer broadcom driver you mentioned first. It seemed to work, it flashed ok, and I tinkled with options to turn stuff on and off, although since this is a backup router, I have no chance to really give it a thorough test for bugs in fw... sorry about that. If you do want me to test future builds against this model, post or pm me, I would gladly be able to see if it flashes and if it seems to work ok based on a shorthand browse.

    I did notice one thing, I changed region to JAPAN, although I am in North East NY, USA, and I usually get more wireless options this way with the 16 - not the case with the 10, but not sure if that's your fw or a hardware limitation based on the fact that this is an inferior model.

    Thanks for all the help!!!

    @xtacydima: Could you tell me how you did it?

    Yesterday I've tried to run my RT-N10 with this image: tomato-K26-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-083V-MiniIPv6.trx but unfortunately this doesn't works at all.
    For uploading image i've used this restoring mode (asus CFE).
    Did you update it from GUI? What you had before tomato?
    Which exactly image you get from shibby?

    Not really.. Because I've used exactly the same link but I've used recovery mode build in RT-N10 (you have to keep for 30sec reset button ant connect supply).
    Today I will try to download ASUS firmware restoration and try again. I will also try step with dd-wrt (but in my opinion this have nothing to that).
    If you will have more informations please let me know :)

    I agree, having a previous kernel makes no difference when using the ASUS tool. I noticed that this model has about a 5sec hold time of the reset button until clicking the button on the ASUS tool, as opposed to the 16 model which has approx a 20sec hold time, other than that, it should really just work.

    I think ASUS triumphs in this manner over Linksys right now, you really can't brick this thing, it's great.

    Good Luck

    I've just try to flas my RT-N10 with tomato-K26-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-083V-MiniIPv6 with the use Asus Restoration tool.
    But no results.. My RT-N10 is dead. Next step was to flash it with tomato-K26-1.28.9052RAF-EN-MIPSR2-032H-mini-VPN and this works properly.. Any suggestions?
