I have 2 ASUS RT-N16's. One of them is running a K3 build 338581 and is fine. The other one had the same build on it so I loaded build 40559 K3 on and it kept rebooting every couple hours. So I decided to revert it back to the prior build and followed the steps in the wiki to erase the nvram


mtd erase nvram

mtd erase ddwrt

mtd erase linux

Then attempted to load the K2.6 mini build and upgrade to the K3X build per the installation wiki.

The short story is that I have made many attempts but have been unable to load any K3X builds on it no matter whether .bin or .trx or size. I can load L2.6 builds on it either via TFTP or webflash but that is it.

Right now it is running dd-wrt.v24-45454_NEWD-2_K2.6_mega.bin

Here are some other diagnostics:

# nvram show

ppp_get_ac=
pmon_ver=CFE 5.10.56.3
eth6_ipaddr=0.0.0.0

Any suggestions?
