    What is the best version of tomato to use on it? Can i just use the tomato 1.28? It says for most routers but does not give details on which.

    I will not be using the USB. Just need something stable.

    Thank You

    You must use a version for MIPSR2 - which means something based on Teddy Bear's compiles especially for the RT-N16 and similar. Personally, I would use the USB version and just don't use the parts you don't need. The latest version build 52 is very stable. Don't try to use ordinary 1.28 from Polarcloud which isn't suitable for the RT-N16. Load the new firmware using the ASUS firmware restoration utility which is on the RT-N16 disk. That's by far the easiest way to flash new firmware.

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/tom...o-K26-1.28.9052MIPSR2-beta23-Std.rar/download - this has no USB

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/tom...26USB-1.28.9052MIPSR2-beta23-Ext.rar/download - this has everything

    Thanks for the info! Does tomato support N?

    BTW is there anyway to save the bandwidth stats? Whenever the power goes off they are gone.

    Tomato supports N, and you can specify a location either on JFFS (NOT recommended for long-term use) or external storage (CIFS, USB, etc.) for the bandwidth stats.

    Is that new to tomato for saving the stats? I don't remember seeing that or is it in Teddy Bear's only?

    I use the script in post #37 in this thread to FTP stats to an external FTP site (my ISP, actually):

    No JFFS, No cifs, just an available FTP site.
    This works in the standard Tomato... I presume it works in Teddy Bear's too, but I haven't checked it.

    It's been there for at least a few years under the Administration/Bandwidth Monitoring/Save History Location drop-down.

    I have been using Asus RT-N16 more than 6 months with tomato and i love it :)
    You can add 2 GB USB and save bandwidth stats on it.
