The Asus RT-N13U is now supported and the latest builds are quite stable.

Much thanks to those who got DD-WRT working on the RT-N13U!

Flashing DD-WRT to a stock Asus RT-N13U

Firefox sometimes has problems with newer DD-WRT builds. It is recommended that you use either Internet Explorer or Chrome

1. Get the latest firmware from the main page (Just search for RTN13U):

You need the asus-to-ddwrt.trx file for initial flashing.

2. To prevent issues and delays while waiting for DHCP to assign an IP, just set a static IP.

- IP: through
- Netmask:
- Gateway:

It is also recommended that you disconnect all other connections, apart from the one you're working on. Also disable all network adapters, except the one that the RT-N13U is connected to, on the machine you're working on. This is to prevent issues with the Asus Firmware Restoration Utility.

3. Disconnect power adapter from the RT-N13U.

4. Push and hold the button located under the router labeled "restore". While continuing to hold the restore button, plug the power adapter back into the router. If the power LED starts to blink, you can let go of the restore button. The router is now in restore mode.

5. You can now use the Asus Firmware Restoration utility to flash the asus-to-ddwrt.trx image to the router. If you do not have the Asus Firmware Restoration utility, you can install it from the CD included with the router. The process should only take about a minute or two. The Firmware Restoration utility will complete and report that the router is being rebooted, you can now close the utility. Give the router a minute, pull the plug, wait a few seconds, and then reconnect the power.

6. You can now set your network adapter to automatically obtain its IP address again.

7. If the flash was successful, you should be able to access the Web GUI. Enter into your browser, and set a username and password.
