My System Specs

Default Asus WL-520GU

Does anyone have any idea on how to flash this router to openwrt? I can flash it to DD-WRT, no problems... but I think the Openwrt is more stable than dd-wrt?

any step by step guide such as links?


thanks

I just flashed mine to Tomato this weekend. Even has USB support. This tutorial is suuuuper easy to follow and it worked like a charm for me.

I tried it and it works really well... I am not sure about stability thou... I have some problems with DD-wrt where it looses signals with the Linksys GL... I hope Tomato is better than DD-WRT..

Are you sure it's not the Linksys?
