Have you ever thought about what you're doing something wrong? To break the router it should be able to

Sometimes it's better chewing than talk. Burying router is really three should be able to.
Actually try to use UPS

With the custom firmware from our Russian friend this router is very fast stable and a dream to use.

My old 3200 is in the closet and is staying there.

On the lack of ddwrt i would guess its a low priority since the stock firmware both updates fast and has a custom build besides ddwrt.

Making it very stable and very fast with a rather nice ui.

I would also like to recommend the Padavan's firmware for this router. I had those WAN disconnects as well, with the Asus original FW, and now with p9 version, I've been connected to WAN for week without any disconnects.

I really wonder why it's so difficult for Asus to fix that problem. If I was an engineer in their team, I would be meticulously comparing the sources to find what Padavan has changed in WAN code... Shocked

Bunch of asus guys working on many different pieces of hardware and one guy working on just the rt n56u.

It helps that asus included the code on the disk rather then keep it close to the vest like others.

Padavan has just released a new version of his SW (p10).
According to the changelog, it's even more awesome now Cool

sounds sweet, if they ever get around to sending me back my router from RMA I'll probably give it a try. After I do extensive testing to determine the cause for wan dropouts and router slowdowns. I never did any extensive log checking like I should have. But then again I didn't have time.

I am new to this and intrigued by the idea of installing Padavan's custom firmware.

To be very frank, I am quite concerned that the custom firmware may contain spyware/trojans/backdoors. How does one get comfortable with installing code developed by unknown third parties on a very sensitive piece of equipment without parsing each line of the code?

Thank you very much in advance.

It has been checked by knowledgeable users for backdoors, nobody found anything. I can't remember exactly where I read that but I think it was on the Asus forums in a post for the RT-N56U. If I find it I'll give you a link.

edit: here it is http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&id=20111203221130729&board_id=11&model=RT-N56U&page=3&count=85

posts 23 and 24 seem to address the question

The coder is making no attempt to hide the code in anyway so its there for anyone to look at.

Not to mention people could monitor traffic to see if anything is being sent and by now if it was people would have chimed in.

On it is a very good question. As you said before it's built on open source. Moreover all the patches that were made are laid out to the public. I am the curator of topics in the Russian forum and we are very interested in the fact that there are still people who can help us in finishing this firmware. Unfortunately so far apart that no one Padawan deals

I really appreciate the work Padavan puts into his FW, but alas, the new FW (1.0.1.8p1) seems to have brought back the timeouting connections (eternally waiting supporting sites such as s0.wp.com or other avatar sites)

Going back to .07..
