-Use build root (selecting the RT-N56U configs in make menuconfig) to build your image. +== OEM easy installation == 
-Then flash the device with the (windows program that comes with the hardware). +-> Administration -> Firmware Upgrade -> Choose **openwrt-ramips-rt3883-rt-n56u-squashfs-factory.bin**.
-//The original web gui will not let you install any image.//+
 +== OEM installation using TFTP ==
 +  * Unplug router power cord
 +  * keep reset button down
 +  * plug the power cord back

 +===== Basic configuration =====
 +==== 5 GHz radio ====
 +OpenWrt does not initialize the 5 GHz radio correctly by default. To make it work, you will have to:
 +
 +  - Set the country code to a specific country on **BOTH** the 5 GHz radio **AND** the 2.4 GHz radio.
 +  - Go to System -> Startup, scroll down to Local Startup, add the line "**sleep 2 && /etc/init.d/network restart**" before the line "**exit 0**", and click Submit.
 +  - Click System -> Reboot -> Perform reboot.
