Building

To build:

  • Read and follow the build documentation
  • Choose Ralink RT288x/RT305x as target and RT305x based boards as subtarget.
  • The generated firmware you want to use for this device is openwrt-ramips-rt305x-rt-n13u-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin

TFTP Firmware Install

Steps:

  • Set your computer to a static IP 192.168.1.15.
  • Plug your computer into any LAN port
  • Turn the device off and wait a few seconds. Hold the Reset button in with a pen and insert power.
  • Wait until the WPS light blinks slowly and then let go of the Reset button. Your router is now in recovery mode and has the IP 192.168.1.1. Note it will not respond to pings.
  • Send a firmware image using command-line tftp; eg. from Linux:

$ tftp
tftp> binary
tftp> connect 192.168.1.1
tftp> put openwrt-ramips-rt305x-rt-n13u-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin
Sent 2490464 bytes in 1.2 seconds
tftp> quit

  • or using curl

$ curl -T openwrt-ramips-rt305x-rt-n13u-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin tftp://192.168.1.1

  • Wait a minute or two as the device loads the new firmware. You can ping the device at 192.168.1.1 to know when OpenWrt comes online. The WPS light will flash rapidly when OpenWRT begins to initialize, and stay solid when it has finished booting.

This procedure can be used to flash both OpenWRT images or the ASUS factory firmware on the website.

Now follow First Login to learn more about how to set up your device.
