If you are successful and have learned something that would help others ("gee I wish I had known this before I started"), then take a minute to update this wiki. Isn't it better to consolidate knowledge here than to wade though hundreds of postings?

Sister site: Asus T-Mobile Cellspot

This site has been seeded from material from the T-Mobile Cellspot Wiki: the Cellspot is a hobbled RT-AC68U that can be upgraded to a fully functional RT-AC68U.

Firmware Install Procedure

1) Download the DD-WRT firmware recommended above.

2) Navigate to your ASUS Router administration and do a firmware update using the DD-WRT Firmware.

3) After the device has rebooted you should be able to login to the default address


- By default the wireless will come up as dd-wrt and is open. You should lock it down right away by navigating to wireless -> wireless security.

- If you set the Regulatory Domain to Canada a lot of wireless channels become unavailable and you may notice instability. Up in Canada we had to set the Regulatory Domain to United States, and set Regulatory Mode to Off.

- If you change your network Local IP Address to another network like it seems to clear the "Gateway" IP setting below it. After rebooting make sure your Gateway is also set to the same IP.
