Revert back to Stock or DD-WRT on 520gU?

Postby yazyazoo » Sun Jun 10, 2012 6:48 am

My main router is giving random drops on wifi and I would like to revert my router back to stock or dd-wrt. Would I use ASUS utility to get back to stock firmware and then reflash to dd-wrt?

Just trying to make sure so I don't brick the router.

I, myself, would just tftp the ddwrt image, but reading ... requisites it seems they suggest flashing dd-wrt.v24-12548_NEWD_mini_asus.trx first, using the asus restore utility. I don't see why they would not just flash the full ddwrt to begin with; maybe it has to do with the restore tool not accepting the default ddwrt image. I guess my answer this is not really useful, sorry :-(
