I should add that there's no USB support either. Doesn't look like it's fully supported. Maybe one of the devs could chime in?

Well, finally gave in and installed OpenWRT BB and all is well. I'm intentionally not using the wireless radio on the router but all is well (although I did briefly test it and it seemed to work fine). I'd still love to see a Gargoyle build for the RT-N16, but things are chugging along fine with OpenWRT in the meantime.

Installed gargoyle_1.7.0-brcm47xx-generic-squashfs.trx on an Asus RT-N16. Upgraded from a Tomato installation.

Install went fine, ethernet is working, however wireless is not. Despite configuring the settings for Access Point, the Status page shows "Wireless Mode: Access Point (AP) (disabled)" and no wireless MAC address. Any way to set the wireless MAC manually or otherwise get wireless working?

I don't think the RT-N16 enjoys full support with 1.7.0. When I tried Gargoyle, the RT-N16 shows up as 'Unknown' on the status page. More telling was that there was no USB or plugin support. In any case, I did manage to get wireless working without any special effort.

Try restoring the defaults or system reset just in case.

Hmm... Restore Default Configuration doesn't seem to work... router just reboots with all previous settings preserved.

Ended up going back to the default Asus firmware, which (surprisingly!) has been updated recently.

Don't know how I missed this thread...

See my sig

Look for the AsusWRT Merlin builds -- they work awesome

See this thread:

Great build for the RT-N16 -- make sure you reset to defaults
after you flash and re-configure fresh for best results.

Great builds, but I believe they just dropped support for the RT-N16.
