I recently purchased a used Asus RT-N16 from ebay to replace my e1000 v1. Router was already flashed with ddwrt build 14929. I upgraded to the atest build 20548. I am unable to get usb support working. I am assuming that i am missing something very obvious. Under the services tab i do not have a usb tab at all.

Im pretty stumpped but i must be missing something simple, i feel like a dunce!

I don't see an upgrade to 20548 for the Asus RT-N16.

The latest I can find is the "DD-WRT v24-sp2 (06/08/12) mega (SVN revision 19342)"

I know that "[BS] DD-WRT v24-sp2 (01/24/13) std - build 20548" is the latest, but I'm not sure if it was intended for the RT-N16.

Where was the download for the 20548? Was it a generic build?

Please state what make and model router plus the build number and type of DD-WRT you are using. Screen prints and a network diagram can are also helpful. Before you create a new post, use the search function. Chances are your issue has happened to someone else.

Common F.A.Q.
In order to mount a drive greater than 2 TB, you need to use a 3.x Kernel build.

In order to get a 3.x kernel build onto the Asus RT-N16, you need to go from a 2.6 kernel build to 3.x 21530 then to the latest. NVRAM gets expanded to 64K.

Don;t try to flash a build bigger than the Flash Ram on your router or you will have a bricked router.

Where can I get the latest test Firmware or older ones?

BTW...if you do decide to use a kong build...you need to use the nv32k builds...this unit only has a 32K partition of nvram.
