Hi,
Asus RT-N12 is now supported. Actually it is quite good router for its price. If you don't need USB and Giga ethernet and 5GHz, it is good alternative to e.g. Linksys wrt160nv3 etc...
It has bcm4716b0 cpu, 4 MB flash and 32 MB ram + 2 external removable antennas.

Funny thing is that they are on sale today at buy.com:

$26.99 if you checkout with paypal.

They mentioned this thread in the post on slickdeals that got my attention to the sale:

Are there any other options for flashing this besides mini? Also, can I bridge this router with a G router from Linksys flashed with DD-WRT?

No as it has 4M of flash, and yes I don't see why you couldn't bridge it.

Looks like a router with fantastic value! Perhaps I'll begin using these rather than the traditional WRT54GL's I've been using these past few years. They're cheaper and hopefully the 802.11N, faster CPU and more RAM make it a better performer.

I too would be curious to see how well a wireless N DD-WRT router would operate connected to wireless G devices such as a flashed WRT54GL. Does anybody know of any documentation regarding mixed use of wireless standards with routers? Also, can traditional antennas be used on this router like the ones you would use to upgrade a WRT54GL?

EDIT: I found a link to the router on NCIX.com for any fellow Canadian users here:

http://ncix.com/products/?sku=111120910&vpn=RT-N12&manufacture=Asus

$40.59 CAD, not bad.

The product details suggest that this router would indeed work with traditional high-gain dipole antennas. This router looks quite promising! I'll check around for it on Boxing Day. Smile

Where do you download the firmware from? I do not see the n-12 listed in the router database list?

Firmware will be out soon (tomorrow or Saturday). On 4MB units you can flash mini, nokaid-small, voip-small and vpn-small (small builds are with english language only, and limited gui styles)

Please don't flash any old builds.

I got mine to work. I couldn't get the Asus gui to load the trx file, so I used the instructions from Asus recovery tool. I used instructions 1-6.

I made it into a wireless bridge from these instructions.
