Not sure wtf is wrong with this router. It works great when I have the original fw on it but once I use ddwrt or tomato, these are the results I get the image below.

What settings do I need to change/fix to get this working properly? I'm getting frustrated as this is the 3rd day I've been trying different fw's. I have the newest fw that was listed last in this thread btw. Oh, and that rate is the highest I've been able to get it...


Try to connect it in a N only mode. Also use channel 1 or 11. Do a site survey.

@BuzzLightyear
Under Wireless-->Basic Settings look at "Channel Width" settings. Change value from 20 Mhz to 40Mhz , then Save , Apply & Reboot. Twisted Evil

Oh I missed that. Embarassed Also Doesn't he has to WPA2 encryption ?

The issue is also described in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_802.11n-2009#Wi-Fi_Alliance

Wireless security is very important but is also wise to take small steps when try to solve some "issues" Laughing !

Thanks for the replies. I have tried everything that was mentioned in this thread (esp the last few replies). I've tried mixed, I've tried N, I've tried G+N, etc. I've tried 17mW, 20mW, 75mW, 10mW, I've tried all different channels.

And I don't use security encryptions. I set it to only allow my mac addresses. And not like that even matters with the signal anyways...just makes things harder for me to set up.

I was roughly 5 feet (maybe less) from the router and that was the signal strength I was getting. My computer that is 15 feet from it (I was on a laptop setting it up) had a signal strength in the 60's. I seriously think I have a faulty router. I'm going to RMA this.

LOL, nice math! Since when 17mW equals 50mW on rt-n16 ?
17 dBm = 50 mW is correct tho.

I'm not exactly clear on the recommended firmware to use for the RT-N16.

According to the wiki RT-N16 installation page, the provided links imply that BrainSlayer's r15778 K26 code is to be used.

However, redhawk0's infamous firmware recommendation sticky still recommends r14929 for K26 broadcom installations.

Can someone please clarify this apparent contradiction?

I used the initial flash image from "router database" then flashed latest SVN 15962.

I generally prefer to stay with the "recommended" version, unless a newer release has a compelling new feature or addresses a known issue.... just hoping to confirm which version is generally considered to be "recommended" for the RT-N16.

I have tried both. 15962 is stable enough, too. It works smoothly. However now I have jumped to tomato RAF version. I did not see nothing better so far for this router.

I use the latest, 15962 version. It's been the latest version since right before Christmas, and seems stable as can be. I've had 0 problems and currently have roughly 35 days of nonstop runtime.

Everytime I attempt to download a large file, the download would freeze every few seconds. I would have to resume the download or be forced to start over. Everything else is great however.
